If your hair is lacking in protein it may take a few treatments to see a difference. I did one a couple of days ago, and I think I should have done a DT after because my hair was a little rough. My hair likes protein in products, but protein treatments need some extra moisture. Maybe next time I'll add conditioner to the mix.
