3 Weeks Post Relaxer: Doing A Protein Treatment

This past weekend was my third wash day since my relaxer touch up and I was still noticing some shedding and breakage. To help stop this I decided to do a hard protein treatment. Because I was doing a protein treatment I opted to move my deep conditioning to later in the wash instead of doing it as a pre-poo.

My wash day consisted of the following:

Pre-pooing with the last of my L'Oreal Total Repair 5 Ceramide Conditioner mixed with Dessange Oleo Replenishing Conditioner. After applying the conditioner I left it on for about an hour while I worked out.

Cleansing with Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea CoWash. I really like this stuff.

Doing a protein treatment using Aphogee 2 Step Protein Treatment. I applied it like I did the last time I used it by sectioning my hair into four two-strand twists and then spraying the treatment on. I left the treatment on for a little under 20 minutes, 10 minutes under my hooded dryer and 10 minutes not. After rinsing the treatment out I opted to not use the conditioner that came with it.

Next was a green tea rinse and the Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner which I left on for 40 minutes under my Hot Head Cap.

It was kind of late after doing all of this, so I went straight to drying with my blow dryer on cool after applying Nothing But Melted Shea Butter Leave-in Conditioner and sealing with grapeseed oil.

The result was hair that moisturized, felt strong and had some swing. Also, I haven't seen any more breakage. I really need to do protein treatments more often.

How often do you do protein treatments?
