Glyoxylic acid in ... conditioner?
I have a question about a product that's supposed to be used like a conditioner or mask for "unmanageable" or "damaged" hair. Why is glyoxylic acid used here? Isn't it supposed to be an ingredient in some BKT-style keratin straightening treatments or other chemical straightening procedures? Why might it be used in a regular mask?
