How to: Aphogee Two-Step Protein Treatment

Hi guys!

Not too long ago I flat ironed my hair and the most dreadful thing happened when I decided to wash my hair again. Yes, heat damage. So in the upcoming months I will share my experiences with damaged hair and how to take care of it. This time I will not cut it off immediately but instead let it grow for a while and see how that works for me.

I will be explaining more in depth what my healthy hair journey will be very soon but in the meantime I have already started out with my first treatment towards healthy hair.

The first thing that came to my mind when I saw my hair was severally damaged was that I needed to restore as much protein as possible so of course I decided to try a protein treatment.

In this video, you can see how I apply this treatment and what the results are. If you have any questions in regards to the treatment or damaged hair, feel free to ask!

Video: How to prepare and apply henna

Check out my video which explains how to prepare and apply henna on your hair.
Thumbs up if you like it.

A couple of months ago, Caressa shared the effects of henna on her hair (type 3a/3b). But will it be as effective on 3c and 4a type of hair?

I decided to give it a try, because my hair really needs some help when it comes to damage recovery. I was not able to go out of my house without arriving at work with lots of frizz on my hair (But maybe I was worrying too much about frizz).  But there were more things which encouraged me to do the henna treatment:

    • My hair was incredibly brittle
    • My hair was lustreless
    • The texture of my hair was incredibly heavy. Consequently, I was spending at least an hour in the bathroom detangling my hair (Changes of breakage were high)
    • I wanted to color my hair, without applying chemicals

So what were the main advantages for me?

    • I was able to color my hair, without adding chemicals. My hair is now dark brownish
    • The texture of my hair slightly reduced, making my curls manageable
    • I have less frizz

What were the disadvantages of henna treatment to me?

    • Washing the henna out was hell. I wasted lots of products, because it was almost impossible to wash the grains of the mixture out of my hair.
    • The result was slightly beyond expectations, I was relying on it to solve my frizz problems
  • My bathroom was a mess afterwards; it was a pain in the ass to clean it up.

This is my selfie of the morning after the treatment:
