    Ooookay.....This was very strong on my hair. I sat with it under the dryer about 15 minutes and felt my hair seized up on me.

    So, I'll know next time if I need a little 'harder' Protein Treatment. It's 4oz so I may have a corner left to mix with that and something else.

    Had to pull out something really slippy to Steam with.

    Skipped the light Protein this week based on that CeCeNaturals Banana from last week.:mad:

    Decided to take a week off since that was a new product for me. Will resume my treatments next week.

    Does anyone still use eggs in their protein treatments? I only use the yolks since the whites leave behind white chunks, but lately I’ve been getting protein overload from eggs.

    I really like eggs since they’re cheap to buy and mix with whatever you want. Maybe I’m not mixing the egg with enough product or not enough oil to cut it down, but especially my roots don’t seem to like it. It makes my roots super crunchy and very rough to the touch even when wet.

    My ends love any amount of protein though.

    Used: NurCreations Avocado and Green Tea Hair Treatment. I consider this very light protein and more like an overall Hair Treatment.

    Kind of figured out a less harsh way to use eggs. I mixed them in one of my deep conditioners I have, and it’s lessen that hard crunchy feeling.

    Hopefully I can still get a good solid strengthening treatment. I mixed an egg with 2 tablespoons of OGX hair butter, and the remaining packet of ORS replenishing pack.

    I’m noticing small broken hairs when my hair is damp, and when applying product, so this tells me I need a lot more protein. I’d like to get ahold of some more collagen, but that’ll have to wait until I get some more money for hair stuff.

    Thank you @I Am So Blessed. Yes it is blown dry and gently bumped at the ends to form a slight curl. My regimen is working very well. I am doing very little manipulation of it these days.

    @I Am So Blessed, maybe if I stop trimming/cutting the ends, I will have waist length hair like you do in short order.

    My stylist took 3 inches off during my last cut and the one before that took off maybe 4 or 5 inches. I need to learn to trim/dust my own hair. I just don't know how to. I always feel like I will botch it up :nono:

    You see that peak at the bottom of my hair? That grows like that after every trim/cut. It grows fastest right at that spot on my head. I've learned to leave that one alone though. There is no use evening it up.

    After a trim, that part of my hair says to the rest of my hair "See ya, don't wanna be ya" and like the energizer bunny, it takes off into the sunset :lol:.

    I used Dudley's drc 28 yesterday right after a henna treatment. That was probably a bit overboard but my hair felt nice after deep conditioning. Am I supposed to see an immediate stop to breakage? I was still seeing a few short broken strands here and there and there were still small c shaped hairs in my blow dryer filter

    This was happening to me when I needed a trim. When was your last trim?

    okay, you might be needing a deep trim. See a stylist that you trust though.

    :D@ the bolded. That's a nice attractive peak though and I think it comelements the whole style, a natural shape. I just trimmed my hair today back to hip length or a little above (so it's whip length). I have a trimming tip that I learned from the comment section of YouTube;
    1. Section the hair in maybe 8 parts.

    2. Measure each section from root to tip.

    3. (For example) if all the sections are roughly 15 inches, cut each section to 14 inches using your measuring tape. That ensures that all the sections stop at 14". I hope I make sense lol.

    Your hair is lovely to the eyes, peak and all.
