Happy New Hair…

How’s everyone doing? I know I have been MIA for abit and I’m going to make up for it.  I have been catching up on your blog posts and finally now putting my thoughts on paper.  My scalp has been screaming at me for more than a week now. I haven’t washed my hair in two weeks which it’s not accustomed too.  This wash day I decided to pamper my hair and hope my shedding reduces
My hair with Aphogee 2 Step Protein Treatment. PS - the white marks on my neck are from the product

[1]   Scalp massage with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil .
[2]   Prepooed (pre-shampoo treatment) with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil all over my hair for 
       40mins under my heat cap.
[3]   Shampooed with ORS Creamy Aloe twice as my hair was heavy coated with products for
       the last two weeks.
[4]   Applied Aphogee Two step Protein Treatment and left it on till my hair was rock solid 
       which was about 20mins.
[5]   Rinsed and applied a dime amount of Cream of Nature Moisture & Shine Shampoo. Rinsed
       and applied Aussie moist conditioner to sit on my hair for 2mins and rinsed.
[6]   Deep Conditioned with my Queen Helene mixture for 1 hour with heat.
[7]   Rinsed and wrapped my hair in a T-shirt for 15mins.
[8]   I tried a new leave in conditioner’s of Elasta QP Leave in H2 and Aphoghee Pro-Vitamin 
       Conditioner. I just left my hair open to airdry for the rest of the day
Clipped up hair
The following day I applied Jamaican Black Castor Oil on my scalp. Moisturized with Elasta QP Olive Oil & mango Butter and sealed with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.

I clipped up my hair, but will be rocking a bun for this work week.

  1. We totally forgive you for being MIA with you being a newlywed and all. LOL! We missed you!
    I still have the biggest fear of the apHogee two step. I do plan on henna-ing my hair in the near future which may have an effect similar to a hard protein treatment. Did the Creme of Nature help soften your hair after rinsing out the protein conditioner?

    1. Thanks Andrea! That's the reason i decided to use that before the Aussie moist and it certainly did a great job. I need to give henna a try. Looking forward to reading your experience.

  3. Does 2 step halt your shedding? I always thought it was for breakage only. Your hair looks awesome and healthy so whatever the case, you def know what you're doing.

    1. My shedding hasn't stopped yet but it sure has decreased. Aphogee is great for stopping breakage but protein also helps with shedding as well. I was due a protein treatment, so i killed two birds with one stone. I'm going to do a tea rinse during my next wash day

  4. Elasta QP is the second product on my to-buy list this year. I just have to make sure I read the ingredients because the protein sensitivity is killing my vibes. I have been washing my hair less too. The weather is too bad here. I love your hair, and I hope the Aphogee treatment helps with the shedding.

  5. You're not the only one washing her hair less so far in 2015! My scalp totally rebelled after 2+ weeks between washing. I used to love how light and bouncy Aphogee Pro-Vitamin Leave In would make my hair!

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience chica!
