Default All time fave protein treatments? And best DT to use after?

Preferably no smelly ones, I've tried aphogee but just couldn't handle it

My current favorite is Ion Reconstructor from Sally's. It does have a light/moderate fragrance but I don't find it to be too strong or unpleasant. It's not a super heavy-duty PT, but I really like it and it is CG for those following that method.

Thank you! I don't mind fragrance just as long as it doesn't smell like something that requires bleach to be cleaned up *looking at you aphogee* I'll definitely try that.

If your looking for something inexpensive and easy to get a hold of I personally prefer egg yolks, kraft mayo and good old evoo that I mix up in my kitchen. Nothing I have purchased from the store has compared to the results I have gotten to my kitchen concoction and my hair has never been healthier, stronger nor have I seen this little breakage or shed hairs (knock on wood).

For my deep treatment after I use Suave Almond & Shea Butter condish w/coconut oil added, cover w/a processing cap and sit under the hooded dryer for 35 mins and I'm good to go!

I love cheap and easily accessible. I don't like a lot of drama w/my hair especially when it's not necessary!

favorite PT-IAgirl's gelatin PT
I don't really DT. I just use my rinse out. If I want some extra moisture, I mix in honey and maybe a few oils.

Does whey protein powder work?
Like the one you add to smoothies, before work outs, and muscles added to conditioner or oil. I have MRM whey protein powder and I was wondering if I use it on my hair to give it some muscles.

The best protein dc I have ever used is the one in my siggy. Nothing I have used has compared to it! I am currently using organic coconut milk but its not CG. Will have to give Iron Reconstructor a try :-)

I definitely second IA Girl's gelatin PT. cheap, easy to make, and easily customized to be weaker or stronger, as needed.

SheScentIt Okra, Cure Care from Sally's

I don't usually do a DT after, it negates the protein, I use the SSI okra as a LI

I really like Curl Junkie Repair Me! It's both a PT and DT in one bottle. Works really well on my dry 3b curls.

No, unless you have purchased a pricey hydrolysed protein. Molecules in regular whey are too large to penetrate.

I strongly enjoy the IAGirl's PT:
Pedaheh's Hair Blog: Science-y Hair Blog Recipes

For my DT I like using my TN with CO (in sig).

I recently found this product at Sally's called 100% all natural protein. It's in a white bottle. I was using Aphogee, but this was a lot cheaper. It smells worse than Aphogee, though. I mix it in some protein powder to make a paste and apply it to my hair. Then I dry it until it's hard and then rinse out. I follow up with Shea Moisture conditioning masque that I also dry in. My hair has never been better! I was losing so much hair each time I comes and after one treatment, that stopped.

Me, too. I've only had a sample of CJRM, but had enough for about four uses. Each time, I really liked what it did to my hair. So much so, that I am now comparing every other product to it and I can't get the same results.
