Condition/deep condition

Despite the bad reviews I read I used the Aphogee Balancing Moisturizer that came with the treatment. As the reviews predicted it was terribly ineffective. I was prepared though and had my Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Deep Conditioner ready. For deep conditioning, I sat under my hooded dryer for about 10 minutes and then rinsed with cool water.

Drying

Since it was now about 11 pm I applied my leave ins Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave-In Conditioner and Thermafuse HeatSmart Serum. Then I sat under my hooded dryer for an hour. My roots were still a little damp (the story of my life), but I cross wrapped my hair and went to bed.

The results

In the morning my hair felt good and there was very little shedding. To style it I did two braids on each side of my head and pinned them up on the opposite side.

    1. I totally agree with Nequéren! How did you do that cute braided do? Tutorial please!

      Aphogee 2 step was my first protein treatment too! I just wish that I would have applied it with a spray bottle the first time like you. LOL. Let's just say---it was not a pretty sight but it got the job done! Do you think that you will use Aphogee again?

      Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience chica!

    1. I really liked it. I was scared I was going to do something wrong which is one reason I read posts, several of them yours, from other bloggers.

    1. Thanks! I was pretty happy with how my ends looked as they were having a hard time holding moisture due to air drying the previous wash day. My ends really don't like air drying.

  5. That braided look! Your protein treatment turned out well. I'm hoping to do mine in about a week's time.
