Default How often do you do a PT?

How often do you do a protein treatment, what do you use, and how do you do it?

Thanks!

I do it as needed, usually weekly. I use any nature's gate conditioner and apply it to my hair, mainly the ends. Cover with a plastic cap, put on my heat cap and leave on for at least 20 mins. Then I rinse. I'll either follow with a DC or apply my leave in and seal.

how often to do a pt depends on your hair texture mostly. if your hair is fine, it will love protein, coarse hair can only tolerate a tiny amount here and there, medium likes some from time to time.
i use curl junkie repair me, in the winter once a month, summer maybe once every two weeks. my hair is medium texture. cj repair me is very intense and extremely moisturizing,most people do not use a dt after it, no need to.

Thanks for the replies, keep them coming! I have that medium hair that likes it "from time to time" and am trying to get a feeling for what that means. Right now, I think I'm over conditioned, so that means deep conditioning definitely less than once a week!

I PT at least once a week. Usually use CJ Repair Me with no DT after it. If I do a second PT, it's usually a "weaker" one. I also use the weaker ones as leave ins.

I use a lot of really rich products--never get over conditioned and never DT.
