Aphogee Two-Step Protein Treatment

Aphogee Two-Step Protein Treatment

Promises:
This remedial process is highly recommended for hair that:   
Is too weak or fine to take a perm or relaxer. (use the week PRIOR to service)
Is over-bleached.
Will not hold color. (use PRIOR to color application)
Breaks when combed or brushed.
Is mushy when wet and brittle after drying.

Directions:
Gently cleanse hair with ApHOGEE Shampoo. Rinse thoroughly & towel blot day.
Apply enough ApHOGEE Treatment to thoroughly saturate hair and comb blend for even distribution.
Leave hair uncovered. Do not use a plastic cap, and seat client under medium heat dryer. (Alternatively, a hand dryer may be used, but hair should not be agitated while drying.)
Note: When ApHOGEE Treatment is dried into the hair, the hair becomes extremely hard. Do not comb or brush hair while ApHOGEE Treatment is dried and in the hair.
Re-wet and gently rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Apply ApHOGEE Moisturizer to hair & scalp. Leave for 2 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.
Proceed to next service or style as usual.

Ingredients:
Deionized Water, Hydrolyzed Animal Protein, Magnesium Sulfate, Citric Acid, Ethylene Urea, Dimethylol Urea, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Magnesium Carbonate, DMDM Hydantoin, Fragrance.

The TRUTH:
This product is the TRUTH! Very similar to the Keracare Super Reconstructor – Difference is the price tag. The very first time I used this product I was amazed it instantly strengthens the hair, you can feel after you rinse out the product and DC with a moisturizing conditioner, the hair has a new life and is bouncy again. I really love this hardcore protein treatment. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND, you read and follow the instructions carefully as this product dries on the hair to a very hard finish, manipulation in this conditioner is NOT commend follow up with moisturizing DC. I tend to use this product one week after my relaxer, then six weeks into my relaxer and 7 days before my next relaxer, and my hair is healthy and strong.

  2. Does this product alter the texture of natural hair? I am worried it will change my curl pattern.

  3. I use it but don't notice any difference. I have thin hair and it still breaks off on a daily basis. I dye my hair for grey coverage but cannot perm it. The breakage is in clumps if permed.

  5. I have found the secret to growing long hair. Stop doing so much brushing, pulling, combing, relaxing, coloring, straightening, touching, weaving, slicking, highlighting, blow drying. Use protective styles as much as possible. Use oil or cream when possible. Be gentle like it's a preemie. Now my hair is at my hip. I am a former hairstylist.

    Protein treatments can work. But what you are doing the rest of the time has a real effect on your hair. You wouldn't think a daily combing would be damaging but it is. I finger comb my hair and pin up as much as possible. I could never grow my hair this long before I became a stylist. I studied hair and got my ideas from seeing how people could grow their hair longer if they had a curl (oil) or dreads (little manipulation). Very simple but takes discipline.

    Oh and never sleep on a cotton pillow! People don't believe this is not a weave.
