Do you like their protein system? Looks interesting. I like the other products I've gotten from them - whipped cream, almond glaze, sitrinillah dc...

Yes. Step 1 is a bit messy and the smell is :nono:. Step 2 smells :lick:. My hair is strong with amazing slip afterwards. I tend to have hand in hair syndrome after this treatment.

Okay, so I've been focusing more on moisture, but I tried Aveda Damage Remedy - loved it, but so pricey!

I still use my CSI and my Aphogee 2 min

I haven't been in this thread in a while b/c I've been in braids.

I took all of my braids out on Tuesday & detangled w/ the Jane Carter Leave-In. I had planned on using Joico K-Pak Reconstruct b/c I thought I had overmoisturized (my hair felt limp on the sides & in the back), but it didn't feel bad when I took all of my hair out.

On Wednesday, I clarified w/ V05 Kiwi Lime Squeeze Clarifying Poo. Then I applied Aphogee 2-min & sat under my heating cap for 15 mins. under high heat. Then I rinsed it out and did an ACV rinse. Then I sectioned my hair & sprayed a mixture of water, coconut and castor oils, and honey on each section. Then I sealed w/ KBB Hair Oil & twisted.

I didn't follow up w/ the KBB deep condish like I usually do, and now I'm wondering if I did the right thing. My hair feels soft, but not as soft as it usually does. I'll see how it goes when I take it down tomorrow.

The only thing protein I used on my hair today is Joico k-pak Reconstructing Shampoo and I followed it up with some Joico Color Endure Conditioner which of course is still in my hair. I am leaving it until tomorrow.

Did a protein tx with Komazacare's Hair Strengthener. I love the simplicity of it. Spray on, sit under dryer for 10 minutes, then wash out. Result--strong ,yet soft hair using a natural product.

Can i ask where you got this?
I'm loving the ingredients:yep:

I will be washing my hair with my tea but adding some of my homemade beer shampoo to it for a good cleaning of my hair and scalp. I will follow it up with a little bit of Elucence Extended Moisture Repair Treatment and DCinf with AO HSR this morning.

I relaxed today and DC with Aphogee Keratin Two Minute Reconstructor after neutralizing. Just bought a small bottle of Aphogee Two Step and will start using it every six weeks since I had a lot of breakage during my 11 week stretch.

In order to keep up with my protein usage, I added some aloe vera gel to my MN mix and I just used it on my scalp tonight and a few nights ago as well. It is the only protein I have in my MN and I use a lot of other moisturizers in it as well so the moisture part is covered. Tomorrow morning, I may spray some Aphogee green tea restructerizer on my hair.

Haven't done a protein treatment since last Tuesday...I'm having a lot of trouble "listening" to my hair to figure out what it needs (I've read the articles, Sistaslick, etc., I just can't quite match my symptoms). There has been some breakage (breakage, not shedding...there's shedding too, but I'm ok with it), and I have been using lots of moisture and a fair amount of protein leave-ins. Anyway, I'm going to use the Aphogee 2min again tomorrow. We'll see.

A few days ago, I posted about how I didn't follow up w/ KBB Deep Condish after using Aphogee 2-min, and how my hair felt soft but not as soft as it usually feels.

I'm happy to report that it's working out really well. I have even less breakage, which is surprising b/c I thought that my hair would need more moisture than Aphogee 2-min. after clarifying.

Checking in:

I'm washing my hair with some of my ayurveda tea rinse mixed with my homemade beer shampoo and a little bit of David Babaii Hydrating Shampoo. This mixture makes my hair feel so full and luscious.

I will be DCing this morning with a 1oz pack eack of Roux Moisture Recovery Professional Protein Pack Treatment mixed with Ion Effective Care Treatment. I will most likely follow it up with some Jason Natural Biotin Conditioner and leave it in all day, and wash it out tomorrow.

I washed my hair last night. I'm off of my two-week schedule this time, but I'm going to a barbeque & I don't feel like wearing my wig.

I clarified w/ V05 Kiwi Lime Squeeze Clarifying Poo. Then I applied AO GPB & sat under the heating cap under high heat for 15 minutes. I didn't follow up w/ KBB Deep Condish. I did an ACV rinse, and sprayed my hair w/ a mixture of Jane Carter Condition & Sculpt, coconut oil, castor oil, and honey. Then I twisted my hair.

I'll see how my hair reacted to just using the AO GPB w/out KBB in a few hours. It should be fine, though. After all, my hair was fine w/ just Aphogee 2-min & that's a stronger protein.

Good news! Today, I did the Aphogee 2 step treatment when I realized it would be 6 weeks tomorrow since last did the treatment. My hair feels like a 9. Much better results than the first time I did the treatment.
