|ApHogee Two Step Protein Treatment|
So to prep, I followed my normal pre-relaxer routine: prepoo with ceramide rich oil (hemp seed…using this up), clarify/chelate (Chi Clean Start), apply ApHogee 2-Step Protein Treatment followed by Bee Mine BeeUtiFul moisturizing deep conditioner (to further help restore moisture after the hard protein treatment) and Roux Porosity Control. Again…this is pretty boring since its what I do before every relaxer but for new followers you may not know! Hi there! *waves* I must say that my new dryer makes the protein treatment harden WAY faster than my old Gold N’ Hot…I keep finding reasons to love this thing.
These steps are vital for me to get the best relaxer results. In the past I have been lazy and skipped the protein treatment before, thinking that my hair felt pretty good and that I’d do it after touching up. It always ended badly with more breakage and shedding than necessary. So now, I just resign myself to two long wash days back-to-back: the wash before the relaxer and the actual relaxer day. Well that’s all folks – thanks for reading!!!
