Default PT on Unwashed Hair--Still Working Well

Been doing this for a while, and I've noticed that my hair benefits more using this method than doing a PT after shampooing. After the treatment, I rinse with cool or tepid water, and cowash or low poo. A DC is done afterward, if necessary.

I've also noticed that the definition lasts longer and my hair does not need as much of a styling product.

Have you tried the method? If so, what were your results?

I found that when i used to do deep treatments that it was only effective if I used a low poo prior. I generally follow the same protocol for protein treatments. However, I saw your post and it intrigued me so I am going to try it on unwashed hair (well I'm trying it right now as I'm typing). It seems counter intuitive though. Isn't this providing a barrier making it harder for our hair to get the protein it needs. I guess I'll see in 20 mins.

My guess would be this method would encourage the protein to adsorb (patch repair the surface) but not so much absorb (penetrate). Both are potentially beneficial, depends on the individual's hair.

I have been thinking of doing this - simply because I hate having to find the time get in the shower twice to do the whole wash/PT/rinse & condition process. But my hair loves protein so this seems like a good option on my lazy days when I can use a boost.

Just wondering did you use the PT on dry hair or do it as a spritz (with water) and condition?

I saw you use Euclence PT - is that creamy? I use Sally's Colorful so it's very watery - just wondering if I should mix it with a base conditioner.

And what type of hair do you have? don't think I saw it in your siggy.

bliss611:

I use the PT (actual conditioner) on dry hair. I've tried using a PT spritz as a PT treatment, but it wasn't as effective as the conditioner.

Elucence has a jelly-like consistency. It foams up on your hair, but the foam dissipates. The slip (ironic for a PT) of the Elucence Repair Treatment is wonderful. You won't need a base conditioner unless you just want to use one.

My hair type is 4a/3c, but I have found that my hair's porosity determines what products I use versus my hair type.

Thanks GreatCurls!

I am not planning on buying Eulence - just wanted to see how it compares to Colorful Neutral Filler. Colorful PT is watery so I can just spray it directly onto dry hair and see how it goes.

Think I'll try it next time I want to do a PT during a busy weekend. I agree - porosity matters more than type. Just curious because of the products in your siggy

I do this once a week and it works great for my hair as well. It reduces the porosity and gives me more defined curls and shiny hair.Pluss i am to lazy to take a shower, then a dt for several hours and then shower again. its much easier to do dt on unwashed hair then shower
