Care for extremely damaged hair

From Lavendar on Hairlista. The entire blog here ---> click here I don't know if you'll need to sign up for Hairlista to see it. If so, the SIGN UP!!! You won't regret. This will be me this Sunday.

For severely damaged hair only (level 3), follow this treatment once a week for 4 weeks and then every 6 weeks.

Level 2 hair should follow this treatment once every 4 weeks until improvement is noted.

Level 1 hair or maintenance should follow this treatment once every 6 weeks or 1-2 weeks before relaxing, or as needed if you are good at gauging your protein/moisture levels. It is never good to use hard/medium protein too often. Learn your hair!

Levels 2 and 3 must remember to adjust to once every 6 weeks at the recommended time or as improvement is noted.

Begin by shampooing with a sulfate-free shampoo.

1) Aphogee or Emergencee Treatment – Use either according to the directions. Aphogee should be done under the dryer until extremely hard and completely dry, usually around 45-60 minutes.

2) Next, follow with an application of MOISTURIZING DEEP CONDITIONER that does not contain protein. * Leave on DC for at least 30-60 minutes with heat – Rinse

3) Follow up with Porosity Control conditioner: * Leave the PC on for about 15 minutes – Rinse (don’t worry that the directions say to leave on 30 seconds, this is the only exception you should make in following the directions). Rinse thoroughly. You hair should feel greatly improved.

Additional Treatment Tidbits:

*Always rinse hard protein product off in the shower. You do NOT want to manipulate your hair while it is in the hard stage. It could snap off. Do not touch it as you sit under a hooded dryer. Do not bend your head over a sink.

* You must always, always use a moisturizing deep conditioner after medium-to-hard protein treatment or your hair will feel brittle and rough.

*Porosity Control helps to make hair less porous and it restores hair to the proper pH levels.....it is an "acidifier". It will make your hair more sleek, shiny, and conditioned.

*If your hair is not damaged enough to warrant their use...nothing will happen. You just won't notice a dramatic change. BUT, if your hair IS damaged...you will LOVE the results!
