In need of an effective DT asap!

Recently I've decided to go blonde again by slowly adding highlights into my hair which is a mix of dirty blonde roots and reddish copper at my ends. My hair was very healthy and already quite porous prior to the highlights. Now I'm afraid its getting a lot worse even though I've had them professionally done its still been pretty hard on my hair. My hair likes protein alot and is medium texture.

Its already dull and very dry looking. I've only had half my head highlighted, but I'm a little scared it will start falling out or breaking off soon. Any suggestions? I'm desperate and would try just about anything at this point.

Have you tried the Aphogee two step treatment? You can get it at Sally's. It's supposed to be the mother of all protein treatments. If you do a search you should find info about it on here.

3b - dry - medium texture/medium porosity!
Co wash/rinseout/leave in: currently auditioning products
Styling: lube and BRHG

Sally's has Ion effective hair care treatment (2$ish a packet). It is a more mild PT, but it is strong enough for me.

2a (nc.com) 2bFi (Fia), very fine, thin, low/normal elasticity, porous, CG, doesn't get weighed down
Cowash: Tresemme naturals
Rinse out/leave in: Renpure Organics (red)
Curl enhancer: FSG
Gel: BRHG, Salon care aloe, Ecostyler Krystal (normal dews)
PT: ION effective care, IAgirl's gelatin PT
Low Poo: renpure (red), Ion swimmers
Another good one is Redken CAT. if you go to makeupalley.com, there is a user whose name is katdan and she has a whole notepad on protein treatments. CAT is not as strong as Aphogee but works very well.

Once you do protein, you then need to add moisture to your hair afterward. Hands down my favorite is Jessicurl Weekly Deep Treatment used with a heat cap.


Hair Type - medium to fine texture, high porosity, lots of it, type 2b/3a
My daughter has dyed over her highlights and very damaged hair. She uses the Aphogee two step and it has worked wonders on her hair. She loves it. I also use it occasionally and like the results. I've attached a before and after pic of her. Hopefully you'll notice see the difference

Bleach blows holes in the cortex so you need protein to reconstruct.

I like
Sally's Beauty Supply- Ion Repair Solutions Hair Reconstructor - protein
Ion Effective Care Intensive Therapy- protein and moisture

I would probably use one as a daily conditioner since I really dont think at this point I can overdo protein in my daily regimen. If I could find a gel with protein I would include that too. lol!

I was reading in another thread posted by lindykat who also needs lots of protein, and it was suggested that she could use coconut oil. Would that be worthwhile to use in my hair too? Can anyone tell me where to buy coconut oil and how do you use it?

I love coconut oil! You can get it anywhere really. I get mine at walmart (cheap!). You can get it at any helath food store too like Whole Foods. It comes in a jar. It's found near the olive oil. It's solid at room temp but readily melts. I melt it by running the closed jar under warm water for a minute, then I add a tablespoon of it to a tablespoon of olive oil. I'll then add a moisturizing conditioner to the mix (like Curl Rehab). Then I'll slather it on wet hair and leave it on overnight and rinse it out in the morning.

Aphogee is a really good protein treatment. You just have to make sure you follow the directions, and not manipulate the hair once the product hardens in it.

My hair no longer likes the Aphogee shampoo and moisture conditioner (I now use Giovanni's Tea Tree Tripe Treat shampoo, cowash with Suave Coconut, then apply AOHR conditioner for moisture).

You can probably use your own shampoo/cond as well.

mabbott09, thanks i agree her hair is gorgeous. I get to read and experiment and she reaps the benefits.
