Breakage; UGH!

I’m trying to figure out what to do to combat this breakage that I have. I really want to just use protein based products but I’m nervous to get protein overload. I try to keep a protein/moisture balanced regimen but it doesn’t seem to be working out. When I deep condition I alter between a moisturizing conditioner one week and a protein based the following week. I was thinking that maybe I should purchase the Aphogee shampoo for damaged hair. My hair is colored treated so I think my hair needs all the protein it can get, but its also natural and from my knowledge natural hair doesn’t need protein that much. I just hope my hair is not protein sensitive and I don’t get protein overload if I start to use all a lot of it. I was thinking about trying a hard protein before I start using all protein based products. Maybe that can reduce the breakage dramatically and I do own the Aphogee 2 step and Nexxus Emergence. I tried the Nexxus once before but that really didn’t reduce much and that’s consider and heavy protein. Today is my wash day and I’m going to use all protein based products aside from my shampoo. Lets see how my hair feels at the end. Who knows though maybe I can be wrong about this whole protein thing, maybe I need more moisture. Ugh I don’t even know anymore. Its very difficult to understand what my hair needs but I’m trying by researching and trail and error. Anyway I will post the results later also an update on my rollerset and how its been coming along.

So I Made Waist Length

I made my long term goal! I'm finally waist length. I have been on a hair journey for a very long time and through so many trial and errors I found what helped me. My growth has definitely come from protective styling. I'm either doing a sew in and if not that my hair was always in a bun. Also having a simple hair routine is key! Not only that but keeping up with my ends. I plan to get my ends lightly trimmed but the only person I trust is so far from me but very soon I will get one. I might try to do a new hair goal of hip length but honestly not sure having long hair can kind of be annoying, but I'm not complaining I love my current length. 



Am I Protein Sensitive ?

I had recently purchased Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor and The Keratin & Green Tea leave in. I felt that my hair was in desperate need of some protein being that it was breaking a lot and because I thought my hair was going through moisture overload. Every time I washed it, my hair will feel way to mushy and soft. So today I decided to try the products and my results weren’t so good. This is what I did :
Shampoo with my Neutrogena Triple Moisture & then condition with the Aphogee conditioner. On the bottle it says to either leave it on for 2 or 5 minutes. I don’t know how long I left it in being that I was in the shower, but I do know that I didn’t leave in on for long because I didn’t know the time and I was to nervous having this product in my hair. I want to say it had to be at least 4 minutes that it was in my hair. Once I rinsed it out my hair felt AMAZING! My hair felt so strong and thick. I was just blown away at how good my hair felt. Usually my hair feels like mush an…

Wash Day

[1] Detangled hair & shampooed in four sections with ORS Aloe Shampoo. I feel that this shampooed is a great shampoo especially to remove build up.
[2] Deep condition with Creme of Nature Moisture Milk Masque. I recently purchased this deep conditioner and wanted to see how well it worked on freshly washed hair. I applied it to my four sections starting from tip working my way up to the root. I put on two plastic caps and left it on for 40 minutes while I did some house cleaning. Rinsing the product out it was nothing impressing. My hair looked really shiny and moisturized, hair detangled rather easily but I detangled prior. First impression it did not wow me.
[3] Leave in of choice was Chi Keratin mist because my hair has been shedding like crazy and Creme of Nature 7-in-1
[4] I also recently purchased Creme of Nature Foaming Lotion. I never used a foaming lotion my initial reason of purchasing this was to do a flexi rod set but I decided to skip that and just braid my hair. I did t…
