Protein Queens: Challenge

IDareT'sHair

PJ Rehabilitation Center
CeCe Naturals Banana & Coconut (under Dryer)
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.

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.

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.

@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?

I'm easy going.

: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.

Did an Olapex No.3 treatment.

Gosh I’ve been missing out again. Used Olaplex once years ago, and completely forgot about how awesome it makes my hair feel.

Cuts out the minimal breakage I get occasionally. Restores elasticity something fierce, and protects the integrity of my hair. LOVE!

I realized that my regimen was too moisture rich so I've started to incorporate more protein. I honestly may have gone a little overkill but my hair isn't falling out so I'm going to give this regimen update a test drive.

Yesterday I shampooed with joico kpak shampoo. I mixed the joico kpak conditioner with Dudley drc-28 and sat under the dryer for 20 minutes. I deep conditioned with tgin honey miracle moisture mask. I followed up with Redken Anti breakage leave in and chi silk serum before blow-drying my hair.

My hair feels soft and strong. It takes more force to break an individual strand then it did before.
