Hi hair lovers!!!

Product Description

Size:250ml

Replenish dry, damaged hair with Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Hair Milk. This lightweight, non-greasy hair lotion penetrates deep, replacing natural essential oils. Formulated with pure coconut milk and vitamin E to leave hair soft with body, moisture and shine. PARABEN FREE

 

My take on the product:

  • My first application was on dry hair, it left white residue but faded away before I left the house.
  • My second use was on wet hair and I used it with my Cantu curling custard, and for the first time I had the most defined bantu knot-outs.
  • I am really impressed with the fact that it works well with my Cantu products.
  • With continued use my hair was feeling strong and looking fuller and thicker like when I use my Henna treatments.
  • My hairline has since improved and the baby hair on my hairline is much stronger.

The downside was:

  • I experienced protein overload, my hair became too strong that it lacked elasticity and was easily breaking, I am now doing more moisture treatments to reverse this problem.

Protein Treatment

Hi hair lovers!!

HairĀ  is made up of a tough protein called ketatin. Our hair needs protein for good structure and for strength. Protein treatments temporarily repairs weakened hair strands.

Protein treatments can be used weekly or monthly depending on the needs of your hair and the type of protein treatmentĀ  chosen. There are light and mild protein treatments which can be used weekly to bi-weekly. There are hard protein treatments which can be used monthly or every 6 week’s.

Chemically treated or bleached hair needs more protein than natural hair which is not bleached. My personal feeling will be to use protein treatments bi-weekly due to the manupulation done on my hair, hair canoe weakened by this practice.

Type 4 hair is naturally dry so whenever a protein treatment is done it must be followed by a moisture deep conditioning treatment.

Here are the list of different types of proteins:

Light proteins
– ORS replenish park
– Dark & lovely Ultra Cholesterol

Mild proteins
-ORS Hair mayonnaise
– Organic Hair mayonnaise
– Aphogee keratin 2 minute reconstructor

image

Hard proteins
– Aphogee 2 step protein treatment
– Joiko K pak deep penetrating reconstructor

What type of protein treatment does your hair loves?

Protein Treatment Update

Hi All!

Like I mentioned on my regimen, every last week of each month I clarify with either Bentonite or shampoo, this time I use Tresemme Keratin shampoo, and did the protein treatment with APhogee 2 Step and followed with Balancing Moisturiser.

I must say I was scared to use since I don’t have a hooded dryer, but with the help my good friend google I saw you can use a hand dryer with a plastic over your head. I was tiring I must say but it was worth it. I loved the way my hair felt after keeping the Balancing Moisturiser for almost 2 hours(it wasn’t intentional mommy duties called).

I did the LOC using my self mix leave-in, followed with the castor oil and for the cream I used Dark n Lovely conditioning moisturiser.

The Verdict:

The protein treatment really helped with my breaking hair. I will definitely do it again in 2 months time. The treatment does what it claims and will keep it.

 

I don’t have pics for that wash day, but I will try harder to take pics from now on.

 

Have you used the Aphogee products? What was your experience?
