Red face aphogee 2 step

How often can you do this treatment? And how do you know when you need protein?

I do it every 6 weeks or so (which reminds me - it's time

I know I need a protein treatment when my curls are not as perky as they should normally be. Also do a search for elasticity test - there is a good explanation somewhere in the threads.

I'm just starting out and i'm trying to help get my curl back. I still have some straight pieces, especially the ends from years of flat ironing. Will this help if I did another treatment this week? i did one last week.

Aphogee 2 step is a serious hardcore protein treatment. In this case you need to follow the directions and only use every 6-8 weeks. If you use it too soon it could cause a protein overload and breakage. HTH

Can I just do a mild protein treatment? Or nothing at all?

It depends on your hair. To determine if you need protein check out this site and this one. Have you checked out this thread? It will help you find out lots of info about your hair and you should check out this site. There is a lot of info that will help you with your hair. I've recently come to a revelation that the last few inches of my hair are porous from heat and chemical damage so I have to treat it differently than the rest of my hair. It's a learning process and the ladies here will be able to steer you in the right direction. Good luck!
