I'm mostly 4b with fine strands and low to medium density. I've been using Redken Anti snap leave in for the past 2 months. A few months prior I started to incorporate more protein into my regimen with green beauty's protein treatment, drc-28, aphoghee 2 step and joico k-pak. The added protein has made my strands stronger and more coily.
Sprayed some CP-1 Ceramide injection onto my ends. Really didn’t feel like doing much else, so I just sealed my ends with some Shea butter and put my hair up in some plaits.

That product sounds interesting! Is it comparable to a hard protein rx,
I wouldn’t say completely comparable because it acts a like like a moisture treatment. There’s a lot of softness it imparts, but strengthens like a protein does. So it’s comparable in the strengthening aspect.
Today I used Design Essentials Milk and Honey 6 in 1 Reconstructive Conditioner as my protein treatment. I like this treatment so far. I will use it again soon to see just how much I like it and how well it works and report back.
Can you please list the ingredients. I recent have taken an interest in this product line.
I will but have to do so later this evening. Getting ready for work now okay? Please send me a quick reminder around 8 pm tonight and I'll get on it right away for you.
Thank you, for some reason I can’t find the ingredient list anywhere on the web.
Check out this link on ebay, hover your cursor over the bottle ingredients list to read better okay:
I would have to crop the pics I took and resize the file to add here and that would take too long so I went looking around for you and I can confirm the list is as the same on the bottle I have. The only ingredients you can't see around the other side of the bottle are Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic acid, PEG 8, Shea butter, retinyl palmitate, and limonene. Hopes this helps.
Halp! I need a recommendation. I had been trying fermented rice water, just fermenting on my own for a day or two, and using that water as a rinse. I've tried for a few weeks, but I notice no benefits and my hair is showing signs on needing a real protein treatment, breaking easily when wet, little pieces breaking off. Can someone recommend an affordable (let's say <$5 per treatment) protein treatment?
Thank you ☺️
Aphogee is pretty affordable and easy to get on the ground. If you want a strong treatment you can get the two step which could probably give you 4 or so treatments. If you wanted it regular sort of strength you can use the Aphogee 2 minute keratin treatment.
If you're not opposed to diy, you could also just buy a bottle of pure protein and add it to your conditioners. On the cheap end there's neutral protein filler (under $10 for the 4oz and $15 or so for the 16oz) and on the slightly more you can get green beauty ($24 for 8oz). Depending on how many tablespoons you use per treatment, either one is sure to last you for a couple months at least.
Oh and amazon sells different kinds of hydrolyzed protein as well.
You are quite welcomed.
I had no idea you could just buy the protein. I think I'll try the Aphogee 2 minute first and see how that works. I like the sound of '2 minute'
