    It works!
    January 22, 2014
    I have a lot of frizzy wavy/ curly poofy hair. Every stylist comments on the amount of hair I have. I have used this 3 times now and I do it at home by myself. I haven't dyed my hair in years so all the hair now is virgin. It used to take me an hour to blowdry my hair, if I let it airdry, it would still be damp the next day when it was time to shower. The first time I did it, I was scared and only left it on for 25 min, my hair was smoother but still wavy. This last time, I left the step one on total time 50 min, step 2 on for total of 12 min, including application. I really took my time in the ironing part. I can't believe how straight my hair is now! It looks so smooth. And the best part? I timed how long it took to blow dry my hair, right after I showered so still really wet and it took me 7 minutes! I then did about 10 passes with the the flat iron to top it off and it is bone straight, smooth and silky shiny soft! So my styling time went from 90 minutes to 8 minutes with better end result. This product changed my life, I love it! I don't know what happened to those who had bad results, maybe if you are not sure you could do a test strand first? I will use this forever!
    Pros:
    Cheap, great results
    Cons:
    Step one stinks, it can take along time but worth it

    One Last Thing
    July 2, 2013
    There are relaxers that contain sodium hydroxide and there are relaxers that contain thioglycolate. You CANNOT ever combine the two. Each targets different bonds. When used together they will cause breakage. ( It is how they make Nair).You must stick to one or the other. This is just one reason that this product should never be a DIY project. A professional will know this. It is sad that some of the reviewers here have lost hair but I am not surprised because this product is amazing when used correctly but can cause problems when used incorrectly. That is why we stylists must become certified.
    Pros:
    Beautiful, straight hair that will not frizz during work-outs or humid/foggy conditions.
    Cons:
    Must be used correctly to avoid bad results. Not meant as a DIY product.

    Do It Right - You'll Get The Right Results
    June 17, 2013
    Below you will see horrific stories regarding the Bio Iconic Retex Hair Straightening System. Those horror stories happen because woman and men are trying to use this system at home. The Retex System is a Professional System that should be executed by a hair professional - - not from your home by an amateur. A few words of legit advice - - 1. Find a salon that offers this system and get a consultation. 2. Do not purchase this product online 3. Do not do this at home by yourself 4. Make an appointment with a CERTIFIED & TRAINED hair professional (yes, the Retex system certifies and trains stylists so the job gets done right)... My hair is thick, shoulder length, wavy/curly/colicked....I recently sought out a trained, certified Retex stylist. She actually worked for the salon I always go to. It took about 3 hrs total and consists of three steps. It was pretty penny but let me tell you my hair is extremely healthy, smooth, and stick straight. I am absolutely shocked with the results. None of my hair has fallen out. My scalp did not burn. My hair is not nappy or snarly. My hair is not dry, damaged, or fried at all. These are all consequences of doing the system without knowing what you are doing. Save yourself the heartache, and hairache...seek out a professional. You will not regret it!

    LOSING ALL OF MY HAIR
    May 22, 2013
    professionally done - not a home job but I have huge chunks of missing hair and the rest is falling out at a terrifying rate. I didn't believe the reviews and thought it was do it yourself jobs or incompetent hairdressers. Top salon did mine as per instructions it's a HIGH RISK product ... a bald woman is not the same as a bald man it's psychologically a nightmare of unimaginable proportions PLEASE don't risk it I'm barely coping ... it's unclear yet if per meant or not PRAY FOR ME :-(
    Cons:
    my hair was dead straight looked perfect after treatment but then rapid hair loss and breakage - DEVASTATING

    Not coping

    Clarification
    December 20, 2012
    All relaxers using the ingredient "ammonium thioglycolate-main active ingredient in the formula" is considered a Japanese hair straightener. Ftr...all straightener products out there are only tools, so if your stylist don't know what they are doing, anything can happen, whether they use Liscio, Yuko, Bio Ionic, Matrix, and etc... Food for thought...

    Awesome Product!
    September 1, 2012
    First off, I'd like to say that I am not a hairdresser, but I've had a few chemical straighteners put in my hair in the last 5 years or so. The first and second ones I had were by Matrix and the third was some Japanese Straightener. The Matrix one worked pretty well, but left my hair slightly dry. The Japanese Straightener fried my hair!! I literally cut it all off because it was so horrible! I had a little two-inch Afro, and it looked awful on me (I'm a Caucasion female, by the way). Since I'd had these procedures done in the past, I figured I could do this on my own. I used IonFixx (because I due my hair frequently) and the BioIonic Retex System. I didn't use any other BioIonic products--I already had a cheapie hair dryer and an ionic flat iron I bought from Sally's. My hair turned out way better than I expected! It still has a slight wave to it, but that's fine with me. I live in Florida, and I couldn't stand how frizzy my freakishly curly hair would get on humid days (basically everyday lol). My hair is really soft and so much more manageable! I love it! It was totally worth the three hours and $40 I spent on it! Also, my hair is mid-back, and I still have 1/2 a tub of the stuff left--hooray for touch-ups! It would definitely be easier if you enlist the help of a friend, but it's definitely doable on your own. I can't say enough good things about how my hair turned out!
    Pros:
    The smell of Creme #1 is awful, Other than that, it's great!

    Bio Ionic Retex Hair Straightening
    June 2, 2012
    I LOVE this product! I have been performing hair straightening services since 2005 and I feel like I have created a miracle every time that I am finished doing one. My client's hair is straight, healthy,smooth, humidity-proof and still has body to it. The hair can still be curled, unlike some of the other thermal reconditioning results. I would NOT recommend this as a do-it-yourself service, though. There are too many variables that can go wrong if you don't know what you are doing. When done properly, it's amazing!! My website might answer some questions about the procedure. Feel free to visit it. www.thermalreconditioningSF.com
    Pros:
    Hair stays healthy!
    Cons:
    Nothing, to be honest.

    Bio Ionics Retex
    May 2, 2012
    This product is the best on the market, it is the most gentle permanent treatment for straightening your hair that you can buy or use, although it takes a little time to apply to get a perfect result it is well worth your time. i have used this product for the last 4 yrs on very curly frizzy uncontrollable hair, this product brings my hair to a very straight finish or a slight wave depending on how long i choose to leave the cream on. i also recommend having a bio ionics hair iron and hair dryer to use with product to make it have its best results while processing, after you hair is finished being straightened by this product you will be amazed as it takes so little time to take care of and is so silky soft and smooth. it is much cheaper to buy from here and do it yourself than pay a hairdresser around 600.00 to have it done, sometimes more depending on length of your hair. i used to use the bio ionics hair shampoo's and conditioner also but have recently found out there is really no need to, now i use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.
    Pros:
    is gentle on hair compared to other straightening products. works well and gives a choice of how much movement you want in hair according to how long you process for. gives a great finish every time, while being easy to use
    Cons:
    the postage cost to australia, as it is dearer than the product itself. and the time it takes to apply to get best result. although its still worth using.

    Great product
    September 10, 2011
    I have read the reviews on the product and will agree with most of them that this is a great product. Some people gave the product a low rating because they did not know that it could not be used on previously relaxed hair... Since this is a professional product it would be assumed that the person using it would already know that. I have tight curly mixed hair (black/white mixed race) and this type of hair is difficult to keep moist and bouncy. It is also difficult to straighten with an iron due to the volume. I have been using Thermal Ionic (from Sally's) and it worked great and got the job done. After switching to the Bio Ionic Retex system, I get the same straightening results with much LESS damage to my hair and what a feel a much better neutralizer (step 2). It also takes much less time to process my hair with the first step which is why I think my hair is not damaged. I do recommend that the first step is not left on much more than 10 minutes the for first time users even those with resistant hair (which I have), until you know how it works on your hair. This will prevent it from unnecessary damage. Also your hair will not stay bone straight when you wash it thereafter, but will not require an iron either it will just be kind of wavy straight, which I find very pretty. As far as using other products by bio ionic (like shampoo and conditioner)-I don't and am pleased with my hair. I do use the CHI shampoo and treatment I can't think of the exact type but it's the one in the grey bottle and RED cap and writing on it. Basically I use CHI styling products, not because I find them better but because I have been using them all along and did not try those by bio ionic. Oh also: I find that the product over time changes your hair color to a lighter tone, nothing noticeable to others, but you will notice it. Hope this helps
    Pros:
    works great, less damage than other products
    Cons:
    nothing

    I wish I found this years ago!
    January 26, 2011
    This was money well spent.....I live in Australia, and the postage ended up costing me more than the product but I'm so pleased with the results I'll be doing it all over again when I need to. My hair is in better condition now and soooooo much easier to style. Instead of using 4 different products and a straightening iron every morning, I'm now using a serum after I wash my hair and only the iron if I'm going out and want it dead straight. I have never been able to let my hair dry naturally as it would end up a big boof. Sounds lame but its a life changer!!

    this thing is a miracle!
    October 13, 2010
    I was about 13 when i first tried this product, and it worked INSTANTLY!!!! my hair was soft, silky, and long. it was amazing.i went from crazy, unmanagable hair to silky smooth and soft. I would recomend this to ANYONE. it doesnt damage your hair like other relaxers, and it lasts 6 months. it takes a little while the first time, but the retouches are a breeze. as soon as you wash the first creme out, you cant miss the difference, your hair is instantlt healthy and will stay healthy. It only takes me about 20 minutes to syle my hair right after I get this done. This is the best thing that I have ever tried on my hair, and ive been using it for 2 years now.

    Exellent product
    October 13, 2010
    I read the descriptions of the product and said very clearly that inside the box I should find the relaxer, the neutralizer and the instruction booklet. Unfortunately the booklet was not inside the box. So I had to go on the internet to try to find the instructions to apply the product. It seems this is "recommended to use by a profesional"..oh., please. A beauty parlor charges you more than 500 dollars for this. This, believe me, you can do it your self. So in order for me to help all others who suffered the same as I, of not finding the instructions, here it goes: To apply all steps you will need: -Hair dryer (doesn't need to be Bio Ionic) -Bio Ionic Conditioning straightener iron (Mus be Bio IOnic) -Intensive Mosturizing Shampoo (if you buy the trio this product is inside) -Intensive mosturizing reconstructor (if you buy the trio this product is inside) - SHine sealer (if you buy the trio this product is inside) -Hair coloring brush -Plastic gloves -Comb This are the steps: 1- Wash the hair with the Bio Ionic Shampoo, rinse and towel dry. 2- Divide the head in 5 or 6 sections, and cover your hands with gloves. 3- Put the gloves on and tart applying the #1 Product. No not apply to scalp, leave 1/2 inch. Work fast, and the maximum time depending on the type of hair is 30 minutes (fine hair less time). Then start massaging each section. Te product on this step smells bad, so it's normal. Use a fine comb to work the roots near the face. After time is out. Rinse very well. Do not shampoo, but make sure you rinse well. 4-Blow dry the hair with the hands and dryer, then start using the Iron and make sure you do it very well from the root to the ends. 5- After you have finish ironing the hair, then you will need to apply the #2 (neutralizer). This will neutralize the #1 product still in your hair and will take all the bad odor from the hair and will stop the alcaline process from the number 1 product. 6- Rinse well and shampoo 3 times with the Bio Ionic Shampoo. Rinse and then apply the mosturizing reconstructor. Massage and wear a plastic cap for like 30 minutes. Rinse well. 7- Towel Dry your hair. Apply shine sealer to wet hair. Then blow dry hair. If you prefer blow drying with a hair dryer or the Bio Ionic Iron. This is a very time consuming process, but believe me it's worth it. No wonder why hair salons charges so much money. But you can do it at home. It's recommended not to wear any rubber bands, bobby pins or anything that can leave a wave in you hair. . Avoid sweat, don't wet you hair during shower, and sleep with a satin pillowcase.All this measures just for 72 hours. I wrote this steps because I did not like not receiving the intruction booklet. I think this is somewhat a way to make you go to a professional salon. Hair pro's are human and intellingent like me and you, If they cand do it so can we, so there you go, do it yourself and don't spend money in a beauty parlor. Good bye to you all

    Not Enough Information
    July 28, 2010
    I just received this product today and imagine my disappointment when I pulled out the instructions and it said do not apply to previously relaxed hair. I wish that would have been labeled somewhere on the site.The product itself requires you to have: * IonFixx hair strengthener *IonTherapy smoothing treatment *IonProtect protein protector *IonClarify Shampoo *IonCondition None of this is mentioned on the site description which led me to purchase a product that I couldn't have used even if I wanted to due to the fact that I didn't have everything I needed. Sleekhair, please do a better job of product description in the future.

    do you have to use the bio-ionic hair straightener?
    By Rachel from Key West, FL on November 18, 2012

    Answer:
    I had my hair professionally "retexed" for the first time about a year ago, and a second time about six months ago. No additional products or flat ironing was necessary after processing. Hair was soft and perfectly pin straight with no maintenance required. The one thing I would suggest is stay away from hair dying if you're going to use this product. I made the mistake of dying my hair a month before and a week or so after the second straightening. My hair got totally fried and really hasn't been the same since.
