My routine, clarify once a week (low porosity) use this once a week (fine strands) loves this routine. I leave this on all night starting on damp hair, rinse then use the beauticurls strengthening conditioner as a rinse out and leave-in follwed by curl qeen gel. Someone asked me what did I do to my hair on day two? Nothing but fluffed my twa and that's it and my hair was soft, moisturized with little frizz but still looked very shiny with a nice sheen. This is what keeps my hair in top shape because I do still have to co-wash and lightly shampoo in between treatments once a week as well(just figuring this out, very funny acting hair) loves this as well. No hardness but very soft strong hair.
This is a protein treatment for curly hair, and a damn good one. Most protein treatments require you to follow them up immediately afterwards with a deep conditioner, but this is so moisturizing that you can skip that step. It smells wonderful, restores curl and reduces frizz when my hair is craving protein (generally, I can tell that it needs protein when the curl starts to lessen and my hair feels very soft but is really frizzy no matter how much I condition and moisturize it). I apply it to clean, wet hair, comb it through with a wide-tooth comb, then put a shower cap over my head and let it absorb while I wash and shave the rest of my body. Afterwards, I rinse it out, and it works in that short a time, although of course you can leave it in longer if you feel your hair needs it. It's pricey but well worth it - the bottle is huge and I only need to use it about once a month.
I've been using this protein treatment for some years nowand it has never let me down. To balance moisture/protein for my hair, I typically use this about once a month after cleansing and before a moisturizing deep conditioning. I can feel an immediate effect on my hair upon application, softening and I probably don't need to follow up with a moisturizing deep condish but do it out of habit I suppose. The once or twice that I straighten annually, I will use this right before straightening and right after I wash straight hair. A little goes a long way so this bottle lasts me some time, at least 6 months or more.
3a-c fine, thin, high porosity hair Love this I am now getting big beautiful 2 day hair on the first day and it just keeps getting better. I use this with the thermal heat cap then proceed with the deva 3 step method. My hair is very damaged from color this really helping.
(Fine, Dense, 4A Hair) My hair felt extremely soft and moisturized with this product. Great for protein and repairing moisture. I have color and very dry ends this helped a lot!
This product gives my hair great slip, something I didnt expect from a protein treatment plus I don't have to do a moisturizing treatment once this is washed out (hair type 4a)
I love how soft my hair feels after using this product!!! It's a great conditioner and light protein!
Working this through my hair was seamless. My hair definitely feels a bit stronger. Will continue to use this as a deep conditioner.
This is my Holy Grail Deep Conditioner. If I'm running low, I start to panic. Keeps my color treated 4a/3c hair soft and moisturized! My hair was low porosity and protein sensitive before the color, but now it loves this product!
Amazing. I used this the other day because my curls were going all limp and sad and it was freaking me out. I used the gelatin treatment and even that didn't work. I bought this on a whim after reading all the great reviews and in desperate need of a rescue treatment. I put this on for about 20 minutes and added a blast of heat. It seriously brought my curls back to life. I am very impressed. All my ringlets have their spring and bounce back. I had lost volume for some reason and my hair is nice and big again. The consistency is thinner than I thought it would be but it slid through my hair life butter. I can tell a little will go a very long way with this. The smell is delicious, it's like coconuts. It kind of reminded me of the Suave Naturals Coconut but much lighter and once it's in your hair you can barely smell it. This is a lovely product. I had some reservations about the cost at first but it was worth every single penny. I plan on alternating this with the gelatin treatment and maybe adding a shot of this to the gelatin mixture since my hair just loves protein. What a winner of a product!
I love this! It's hard to compete with IAgirl's gelatine PT... because it's so cheap to make! But this one does compete. Even though it is expensive, it is very high quality. Would recommend if you're CG or non-CG. Excellent hit of protein and a little conditioning too. If you buy a PT, get this one.
I left this on over night and it did an amazing job. It brought the curl back to some lifeless strands. I love it.
The ying to my curl junkie moisturizing deep conditioner's yang. This is the real deal. My go-to protein treatment that immediately restores bounce and structure to limp over conditioner curls. In summer I deep condition with this every fourth week and deep conditioner with the moisturizing treatment every week. Tend to stay away from protein during the winter, especially this terribly cold and dry winter.
I am surprised this got such good reviews. I purchased a sample set from the curl junkie website and it contained a packet of this product which I was excited to try. My hair is baby fine, 3c, just above my shoulders, relatively healthy, low porosity and thin. All that to say my hair does not suck up a whole lot of product. I had 1/2 ounce packet and it did not cover even half of my hair. My hair instantly was so dry I could not work the product through. I mixed in a couple of handfuls of my regular conditioner and still took several minutes to detangle and it would just grab on again if I tried to go back through (usually only takes me 1 - 2 minutes since I cut off my damaged ends). When I washed out the product, my hair did feel soft but how much of that was due to using a huge amount of my conditioner? I did not notice any other benefit afterward. This would be very expensive if I had to use 1 - 2 ounces every time not to mention I did not get results. I would recommend the Curl Junkie Hair Fix over this.
I love this deep conditioner. It makes my hair feel healthy and causes my waves to spring up. Love it!!
This is my favorite CJ product! I'm a stickler for scents and it doesn't have much going on in that dept, but it is a great protein conditioner. I don't find it to be very heavy at all. I was using it once a month (except during months that I straightened my hair) and it was wonderful.. the only reason I will not repurchase is because I feel the Aphoghee CTT gives me the same results for $20 less! (and can be found in brick & mortar locations)
Very moisturizing, great for detangling. Hair does feel stronger instantly. I didn't use a a shampoo or any clarifier, and left on for more than 15 minutes( I have dense hair and a lot to detangle ) . Next time I use this ( in about three weeks ) I would highly recommend using a shampoo before using this to get the full affect, and no need to deep condition after this protein treatment it leaves your hair soft and moisturizer while being strong and durable . The shower cap and leaving it on for 10 minutes makes it even better!
Slam dunk protein treatment!!! it is moisturizing and makes my hair strong. Expensive but worth every penny. I use this after a clarifying shampoo such as Kinky Curly Come Clean to get the full effects of this protein treatment.. trust me you will not be disappointed!
Excellent!!!!! My hair felt soft and strong all at the same time. I really like this pt tx. It smells wonderful and has awesome slip. Will def repurchase.
This product is awesome! I just used it and already know that it will be a staple product for my 4c/b hair. The humidity is zero in my area and it's been too cold to wet my hair every day, so it became like a brillo pad...dry and hard to touch. I decided to try this product that was recommended on You Tube and it worked beautifully as my deep conditioner under my new thermal wrap also purchased from Curl Mart. My hair is rich looking, and has a healthy sheen. More easy to manage too. I plan on using it monthly until spring time. I can see this becoming my cold month holy grail item.
This is a really great protein conditioner. It detangled great, moisturized well and my hair stopped shedding. I used this product and alternated every other week with the CJ Curl Rehab to keep my length and moisturize my hair during the winter months. My shedding was reduced to 10 to 15 hairs per week while detangling. For the price of the products I am glad with the results. So far no other products have worked this well for my hair. Hair Stats: 3B, waist length, low porosity and normal density.
An absolute lifesaver. My 3b-3c (low porosity, high density, fine to medium) curls need lots of protein and this hair treatment is the perfect once-a-month protein boost for me. Combined with CJ's Beauticurls Strengthening conditioner, my hair is no longer dry or brittle!
I love this Protein treatment. It is one of the HG's in my arsenal. Smells great and does the job! (3A)
I had a sample from the CJ Repair me but did not expect that my hair (3a/3b bleached) would like proteins due to other product protein treatments I did not like. Also when I tried the CJ rehab treatment I was not a huge fan of the DT. But the combination of proteins and moisture in this DT is simply perfect. My first thoughts where “I WANT IT”. Great smell but nothing overwhelming and good slip. The price is expensive but looking at the ingredient list you will see that the protein comes as one of the first ingredients and it has many high quality ingredients so it’s worth to pay a little extra and actually get all the good stuff. I will definitely purchase it as soon as I have a friend/relative going the the USA as at the moment the brand is not sold in Europe. Thanks Curl Junkie for making another brilliant product!
I LOOOOOOVE the smell of this product! Whenever I'm in need of a curl boost, this lives up to it's name! I have fairly short hair, so my hair underneath layer is barely wavy - the hair is too short to finish the curl. After every use I notice my curls spring up more and my wavy underneath layer clumps together better and starts a slight curl. I highly recommend this! I have very thick hair and don't need to use a lot of product like I normally find I need with the cheaper, more watery products. It's a little on the expensive side, but it seems it will last me quite a while.
I love this stuff! I am transitioning from relaxed to natural and this is one of the few protein treatments that both textures respond well to.
This product works well. It revives tired curls and adds a punch of shine and moisture. If you need an effective protein treatment that delivers quicker, try Redken extreme anti-snap - I found that product gave me immediate results.
expensive yes but oh so worth it. i used to henna, but i didn't like the time constraint it took to mix the product, the application and the amount of time you had to leave it on for. not to mention the mess! this seemed like a good alternative and it works great. it's not a super strong treatment, it works basically like a protein deep treatment, and unlike with henna i don't have to follow up with anything after using it. i use it now and again when i find my hair is having problems retaining moisture, and because i don't have to use it regularly it's lasted me a long time so i can justify the price. i would recommend this to anyone who thinks their hair occasionally can benefit from some protein.
Loveeeeeee this treatment!!!!!!! I do a protein treatment about once a month, and this is the treatment I reach for the most! One bottle lasted me about a year and now I'm coming back for more. I let it sit for an hour or two my curls just love this stuff
This treatment really gave my waves a boost and made them shiny and more defined. It contains both protein and moisture, so you don't have to follow it up with a moisturizing deep conditioner (unless you want to). It also smells really good. However, the price is so high that I will probably try out other more affordable protein treatments to see if I can find something that is both effective and reasonably priced.
Spectacular product- moisturizing and a strong hit of protein all in one bottle! A little goes a long way, so it is worth the price. The Joico Kpak that I used previously, was more runny and I had to use more product per application. The CJ RM is thick and creamy and dreamy. In the summer, I've been using this 1-2x a week.
Hair stats: transitioning, MBL, 4Aish, low porosity, protein and AVJ sensitive Although I am protein sensitive, my hair LOVES this treatment. It doesn't leave my hair hard or unmanageable. I don't even feel the need to follow up with a moisturizing DC after using it. It softens my hair on contact and I use it under my steamer for about 45 minutes. I also add a bit to my Bee Mine Deep Conditioner to keep my protein/moisture balance each week. If you are protein sensitive and scared to try any protein-rich conditioner, do not be afraid of this one. It softens the hair and leaves it feeling amazing. It also has great slip! I don't care for the price, but because you don't use it often, it will last me a few months. Will definitely repurchase.
I have 3c/4b curlies, with slight color damage. This product gave my curls lots of moisture! I will continue to use twice to once a month or until I feel my hair is in better shape. If your hair really needs repairing I suggest going the xtra mile and sit under the dryer with a plastic cap for 15 mins.
This is my HG deep conditioner. It is amazing. I use it immediately after coloring my hair and it is like I had not colored my hair at all. My hair is soft and the nasty damage that coloring can do is really helped by this. My 2b-2c waves/curls perk right up after using it. My hair stylist is amazed by the condition my hair is in considering how often I color, and I think it is partially because I use this conditioner on a regular basis. The only issue I have with it is how expensive it is, but sometimes you have to pay a premium price for a really good product.
Staple protein deep conditioner! And the moisture is amazing! Who knew you could get STRENGTH and MOISTURE from a protein product :)
I can't believe I waited so long to try Curl Junkie products. Shame on me because this is the best protein deep conditioner I've tried. It detangles like no other and it's full of protein. Unbelievable. Hair type 3b/3c normal porosity
I do see a difference in my hair, my hair do appear to be stronger. It also left my hair soft and I was able to finger detangle my hair!!! It's PRICEY but I will purchase again
The best protein treatment hands down! I have tried Aphogee, ORS and Joico, but I love this protein treatment because it doesn't dry my hair out! There is no need to use a moisturizing deep conditioner after this product because the product is moisturizing all by itself. This is now on my Holy Grail list!
I have hair type 4b/4c. I use this as my sole protein treatment at least once a month. It leaves my hair feeling stronger and softer but never hard like some protein treatments. I will keep buying this as long as the ingredients remain the same and the price is affordable for me.
Very expensive, but for me it's worth it. Sometimes I mix it with an other conditioner (use it as a rinse out), just to add some proteïn.
Wonderful protein treatement which does not leave my hair hard, only soft. Wonderful scent of coconut, creamy & medium-thick. This expensive product lasts a long time so it is worth the price! Recommend!
I love this product. I use it as a leave in before my gel. It makes my curls soft and frizz-free.... Cannot live without this stuff! Smells great too!
I'm a 3b, slightly 3a. i've tried this product twice, and my hair absolutely HATES this!!! Combed it through in the shower and let it on for 5 minutes, rinsed it completely with cold water. Combinated with slightly a bit of KCCC on top off it.. But even while drying.. my hair felt blah! It was frizzy, weight down and felt weird. So i thought i maybe used to much off this stuff, tried it a 2nd time, with a shower cap on with heat.. Frizzing while drying already. NO NO NO product to me, wasted a lot of money!
Love it! My hair was soft and really curly. It left my hair shiny and easy to detangle. Really glad I got this.
I have very fine low porosity hair, and I need the protein otherwise my hair gets easily weighed down. After using Repair Me as a conditioner, my hair had more volume the next day. My curls were less defined and I had a tiny bit more frizz than with a normal moisturizer but I guess it's a balance I need to find between the protein and the moisture. Will definitely re-use it as a conditioner or deep treatment.
I love the smell, how it feels, but did it work for me? Not at all. It didn't "pop" my curls, it didn't strenghten my hair, and while it did felt really soft in the shower, once it dried out, I did felt like I needed another DT. It was like... I put nothing in my hair. It just didn't do anything for me. Money wasted.
This left my hair stronger without the dry feeling protein treatments usually give me. It also smells delicious. My hair is much more bouncy and boingy, it was getting kind of limp before I used this. I followed it up with the rehab DT and it's amazing.
Let me just say, iStalked this product on YouTube forever!! iFinally happened upon a sale and was able to get this for $28, shipping included. I wanted to be sure that my enthusiasm didn't overshadow the products actual performance so iWaited before testing it out. yall, this stuff delivered. My hair felt so strong once iRinsed it out! Noit only strong but iWas also able to detangle with it in my hair, iAlmost forgot to follow up with a moisturizing conditioner. My strands felt like they had gotten the encouragement they needed to continue on an amazing hair journey with me! This is definitely my STAPLE protein treatment. iUse it monthly or as needed.
So far I am not getting the results I hoped for...the curls around the top of my head got extremely limp and all the reviews talked about Repair me! getting the bounce back in curls. I have tried it twice so far and followed the instructions and it's done great for moisturizing, smells really nice, but that's about it. Curls haven't gotten bouncier or regained their structure. Maybe it will just take more using...if it changes I will up my rating.
This stuff is FAB! I have very thick, course, 4c hair that sheds a lot. I've been looking for a good protein treatment since they usually help reduce my shedding, make my hair easy to detangle, but often times make my hair/scalp dry. This conditioner gave me all of the benefits I wanted, including very little shedding and very high moisture, and did not dry me out. Love it! It also smells wonderful. Pricey, but well worth the money! I will be repurchasing.
This is hands down one of the best PT's I've used! It's a regularly reached for one, and I love that it has no wheat ingredients in it since sometimes I react to them (at one point I thought I had celiac but was tested negatively).
This treatment has yet to do my protein sensitive hair wrong. I love it and don't even need to deep condition afterwards. I think it's best to only use it every 2 or 3 months if you have sensitive hair.
I have fine hair strands that are very fragile. By far my favorite protein deep conditioner. It makes my hair so soft, strong, shiny and makes my curls pop! I love it!! It works every time! This has earned a permanent spot on my shower shelf!
I have no idea exactly what my hair type is.... I have super-dense, waist-length, baby fine and fragile waves/curls.... but whatever the type, I've quickly become convinced that CJ products are the best for my hair. I am so protein sensitive it's not even funny....I have to avoid protein (especially Soy) like the plague, but Repair Me is fabulous! I have none of the stiffness, dryness and tangling that I usually get from protein conditioners. My hair is so soft and silky, it's amazing. It's even helping keep the frizz at bay on a miserable 105 degree, 80% humidity day. I don't have to pile on a ton of styling products like I usually do with no results...I didn't even use gel this morning. I just conditioneed in the shower with CJRM, used a little CJ Argan and Olive Oil condish as a leave-in, and I've been good to go all day. I'm here to tell you, if CJ products work this well on my fragile, difficult to maintain and impossible to control hair, it will work on yours too. Pricey? Yes. But not having to walk around looking like a crazy person all summer is well worth it!
A really unique product. that combines a protein treatment with a deep treatment so you don't have to do two separate treatments! Less time, fuss and bother. Yay! I mix a dollop with any daily conditioner and I only have to leave it in a few minutes and voila - bouncy curls! I love this - highest recommendation.
I am a legitimate Curl Junkie junkie! I've tried several products from the line (after tons of research, of course) and am in love with them all and Repair Me! is no different. After one use (an hour ago), my 3c/4a hair is strengthened and some of my more limp ends are beginning to curl again! I've never used a PT before, but it was easy to use/not time consuming, went on like B-U-T-T-A, my hair is beyond soft, smelled great, and there isn't any frizz. I would give it that 5th star if it wasn't a $30 product. Otherwise, I'm in love with this stuff!
SPECTACULAR RESULTS!!!!! After shampooing with a bar, I do a light vinegar rinse. Absorb excess moisture with a towel, then apply Repair Me. I leave this on all day and even into the next morning if I am not going anywhere. I also put it on at night with a shower cap of course and rinse with vinegar the next morning. No additional heat is required. My 2a/3a hair is incredibly soft, springy and shiny. I do this deep treatment a few days before coloring also. My color lasts so much longer (red quickly and easily fades) and retains shine. Item may seem pricey however a little goes along way. My wurly bob is just below my ears and I only need a small blob the size of a quarter. The consistency is very thick but spreads easy even if you towel dry first to get rid of excess moisture. The coconut scent is not that artificial overly sweet smell. Unfortunately the fragrance does not last as long as I would like it to. Love this product!
I'm allergic to this product. It's pretty strong for my 4a thin fine hair. It worked better on my mom's 3c hair and my BF's 4b hair. I just can't use it because it caused some scalp irritations. It smells great, like coconut. I really liked it on my hair but my scalp just couldn't take it. All in all it's a great product. But I will be sticking to the Hibiscus and Banana Dep Fix, with a dash of protein in it.
A great PT - doesn't need much time to work at all (I leave it in for 10 min w/o heat), amazing for detangling, and helps with frizz and makes my hair feel strong. Simply the best. Oh, did I mention I'm protein sensitive?
This is a great protein conditioner that doesn't leave you hair as dry as other protein treatments. It smells great and left my hair in tip-top shape. All in all, if you are looking for a gentle protein treatment this is it.
A bottle of awesomeness! I don't even like protein treatments because I have med/coarse hair, but I decided to give this a whirl....wheeeew, my hair was so frickin' soft I couldn't believe it. And it didn't even feel conditioner slick soft, it felt like nourished soft. Definitely a winner.
This is a "5 curl" product - WOW! It is a seriously good treatment. I color my hair and it has been dry and cold here. My curls just were amazing after I used this. Goodbye winter dry hair and hello to WOW!
