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!

How to prevent heat damage

Hi guys!

If you’re thinking about grabbing that flat iron but you’re not sure how to avoid heat damage, I have some simple tips for you.

 

  • Heat protectant
    Do not use heat without a heat protectant, the chance of getting heat damage without using a heat protectant is much bigger than if you use one. It is also better to actually use a heat protectant product and not an oil.
  • Dry hair
    Do not flat iron your hair if it is still wet. If you don’t want to blow dry, just air dry.
  • Direct heat
    Another option for blow drying before flat ironing is a protective style. I like to use curlformers or roller sets on my hair and air or sit under a hooded dryer and afterwards I will flat iron my hair.
  • Temperature
    It is best to have a flat iron that has a temperature control. You can adjust the settings your self and prevent from flat ironing your hair on a temperature that is too high.

 

These were some small tips that will make your chance on heat damage far less. Please keep in mind that the more you flat iron your hair, the more prone it is to heat damage as well. Try not to do it very often.
