I REALLY want to get rid of my weird curl pattern without damaging my hair.This product is all over the place here it claims it's 100% herbal and straightens the hair completely.It's done the same way as henna but requires olive oil soak after it for 3 consecutive (sp?) days,i dont know why.So I realised noone will know better than you guys.here's the pic in my album with the ingredients on the back.

I'm no professional, but if the ingredients are accurate then it looks like it's mainly a henna treatment. Henna can relax curl a bit and I imagine if you henna 3 days in a row, your curls will be quite relaxed.
However, not all companies are totally upfront about their ingredients. I'd be worried that there is something else in there besides henna and herbs.
Maybe someone else will chime in with more help.
For the record- I think your hair is very pretty how it is. :flower:

That will not permanently relax your hair straight. A natural treatment to alter the structure of your hair unfortunately does not exist, the main ingredient in a chemical relaxer is sodium hydroxide and is a very harsh, damaging chemical.
Your best bet is to learn to embrace your natural texture or try various methods of wrapping or setting your hair on large rollers to straighten it out if you don't want to use heat.
