What really prompted me to begin my revised hair journey in 2007 was the breakage that I experienced after protein overload. So while protein is necessary t o keep my hair strong I was moisturizing my hair and doing my best to ignore protein. I knew that my protein fast could not last for long and once I found the right balance between protein and moisture my hair began to thrive. A woman that I know had her hair shiny and flowing last week so I asked her what she used and she began raving about the Aphogee Protein treatment. I decided to pick it up but since it makes your hair hard and it has Professional Use Only scrawled across the back of the bottle I wanted to be extra careful. I watched a few youtube videos of women who have used the treatment and although they all seemed happy with the results I was nervous because they all stressed how carefully you need to follow directions, no shower caps on the head, don’t touch your hair while it’s hard etc. Now I posted a while back on the MOP protein treatment which did make my hair hard but from what I could tell, that treatment could not compare to the Aphogee treatment. I was intrigued so I made my purchase last weekend. The three items in the picture were sold together for $21.99. I am not experiencing any breakage but I an itching to test out this treatment. Have you used it while your hair was in good condition? If so please share your experience here.

Mascara & Fear Not Thy Protein Treatment
About a month ago Walmart had a two for one sale so for only $5.85 I was able to get two tubes of the Loreal Voluminous Naturale mascara. While this mascara is supposed to give you tons of volume it is also supposed to keep your lashes feeling natural. Sometimes when you put on mascara, you feel it because your lashes harden. I must say that my lashes were very flexible and soft even with this mascara on my lashes. However, I would not buy this mascara again simply because I have used better products but it was not an awful product. My lashes were lengthened and they seemed to be a little fuller but it was not as dramatic as my Maybelline Colossal or the latest Givenchy mascara.
