18 weeks post relaxer
Today was must that a protein treatment was part of my routine. It’s been a while that I did a protein treatment. I say this every time ‘I need to step up my game, when it comes to protein’, but I’m the worst. When I notice that my hair is breaking then I reminded myself, ow it’s time for a protein.
To start off, I began with a wash. I have been using ORS Olive Oil Hydration Shampoo for some month now and this shampoo is LIFE!! Before washing my hair, the dryness was real. But as soon as I apply the shampoo to my hair, my hair feels good. Don’t get me wrong my hair needed a wash, but this product does exactly what is says. The hydration with this product is everything, plus it is free from sulfate. After washing I used a t-shirt to soak the excess water.
So!! It is time for protein. Like I mentioned before, my hair is suffering from breakage – my own fault -. The last time that I did a protein treatment was …… to be honest, I don’t remember. To be honest that is my downfall, not keeping up with my protein treatment.
To strengthen my hair I used Aphogee Two Step Protein Treatment (hard protein). The texture of this product is liquid. I divided my hair in four sections. – Working in sections will make the job easier –. Carefully I applied the product to my hair. This is the second time using this product, so I’m still figuring out how to use this product. After applying the product you need to use heat, so that the product will dry up. I used a blow dryer for this process. The end result is that your hair becomes hard.
After rinsing my hair with lukewarm water I could feel that my hair was stronger – but we not there yet -. I continued with ApHogee Balancing Moisturizer Conditioner to bring back the moisture/protein balance. For a proper deep condition routine, I mixed Mizani Moisturfusion Silk Cream Conditioner with some oils (1 tps Olive Oil x 0,5 tsp. Black Castor Oil x few drops Rosemary Oil). I deep condition for more than 2 hours without heat.
I always get excited when I use a ‘new’ product – second time using ApHogee Two Step Protein – but my hair feels good. Yeah I still had some breakage when I was detangling my hair, but it was less breakage than before washing my hair. I’m going to try to use this product every four weeks.
LEAVE IN TREATMENT
To keep it simple I applied ApHogee Keratin & Green Tea Restructurizer all over my hair and ORS Shealicious Moisture Mist Leave-In Conditioning Spray only on my scalp. Styled my hair in a high bun and let it air-dry.
When my hair was semi dry I could definitely feel a change with my hair. Stronger and for some strange reason my hair felt thicker. I’m going to keep an eye on this product and see if it worthy to be part of the product junkie family.
