My Thoughts: I have been using this product as a styling aid when I first purchased it. I can say at first I wasn’t much of a fan of this product. It would leave my hair nicely defined but it left my hair feeling sticky. I drifted away from this product because of that but recently came across it. I decided to give it a try once again but this time trying a different way of applying it. I learn that a little goes along way and with that being said I didn’t have that sticky feeling anymore. I was being very heavy handed with this product and that’s a no no with this. As the product says “enhancing” it definitely does that to my curls. I also tend to use this as moisturizer for my hair and it does the job of moisturizing. This product tends to be a hit and miss with people but I think if you find away to correctly apply it it might just work for you. Not a staple yet but I am planning to purchase it again.

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…

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.
