“We urge South African’s who are in possession of Dark and Lovely Precise Diamond Straight and Shine relaxer 125 ml tub to return the product o the point of purchase for a refund. We understand that an isolated incident in the production led to an imbalance of the active raw material, affecting one batch only.

The product was distributed nationally and exported neighbouring countries including Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, eSwatini, Zambia and Madagascar.
