Reconstructors and Protein Treatments???

I have issues with breakage and while Im not having any now I want to avoid it going forward. I had my last trim in August and Im trying to stretch that out as long as I can. I know my hair grows I just need to keep it now...So... Does any one use these?? If so what do you use and how does it fit in your regime??

Thought I found my HG (KKCC)..its good but Im sure there's better

Curls Milkshake current leave in, Fantasia IC w/Olive Oil gel for smoothing/shine, Curls Goddess Glaze for Twist/Braid outs.
I'm currently using two, both by Nexxus:

Nexxus Keraphix - there's no routine, just whenever I remember or I shed too much. No need to use heat with it. It's a moisturizing protein conditioner. After leaving it on for the recommended time, I rinse, then detangle with my regular conditioner.

Nexxus Emergencee - Once every two weeks or month, again it's whenever I remember. I use this with heat, then follow with a deep moisturizing conditioner (also w/heat).

Jada -- sorry to butt in...but another boardie and I were wondering what the difference is between the two products -- Keraphix and Emergencee. I've used one, and she's used the other. How do they compare? What's the difference?

Emergencee is a real protein conditioner (very concentrated) that leaves your hair strong and you would never even think of putting a comb thru it. I prefer using it with heat, but it MUST be followed with a regular moisturizing deep conditioner.

They're both excellent at repairing hair damage and stopping shedding.

There are some wonderful reviews on them at makeupally:

I used the Aphoghee, the kind that REALLY stinks. It didn't do anything fo rme. Maybe I'll try the Keraphix or Emergencee. Did you notice immediate results? Or do you have to try, like, the whole bottle before noticing any difference?

I second the nexxus reccomendations. Honestly, I've never found a reconstructor treatment that I didnt like. Well, the TIGI chocolate smelling one is kinda funky smelling.

Then again, I never tried the Apogee one. Is that the one that makes your hair hard and then you wash it out?
Yes, you apply heat to the Aphogee treatment till it sets hard and then you rinse it all out. It reeks too, lol!

I tried it some weeks ago so see if I could prevent breakage but it made it so hard that I had to do some serious deep conditioning. I don't think I'll use it again. Morevover I was advised the protein treatments are more beneficial to stratight hair than naturally curly or nappy hair.
Really? I had not heard that. I thought breakage was breakage. Why do you think that is? Natural hair can be fragile too, and needs help.
I dont think that is true. I guess some people feel that if the hair is natural its not as stressed as relaxed hair and shouldnt be breaking. To me hair is hair and even the the curl bond isnt broken it can still break...i will look into the nexxuss. Ive tried aphogee and it does work I just wanted something I could use in between to keep my hair strong.

That is so not true. Whoever told you that was misinformed. All hairtypes (curly, wavy, coily, etc.) need protein treatments every now and again to keep it healthy.
