Pure Copagen Complex
This is a maintenance conditioner by Peter Coppola that I bought at TJ Maxx. Mixing protein and moisturizing conditioners saves time when I need to strengthen as well as moisturize my hair, so when I saw this, I was curious how it would work. Here are the ingredients:
Pure Copagen Complex (deionized water, hydrolyzed collagen, hydrolyzed wheat protein, hydrolyzed soy protein, keratin, hydrolyzed keratin, oxidized keratin), behentrimonium methosulfate, cetearyl alcohol, amodimethicone, quaternium-18, panthenol, nonoxynol-10, guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, propylene glycol, diazolidinyl urea, methylparaben, propylparaben, citric acid, fragrance (parfum), yellow 6 (ci 15985).
The results were wonderful! I would even use this as a protein treatment on dry hair prior to shampoo/cowash. If TJ Maxx gets another shipment, I'll purchase again.
ModCG-Naturally Highly Porous and Dry
This list is not exhaustive...
Pre-treat: coconut oil, sometimes cheap red wine/banana
Clarifier: baking soda/brown sugar paste
Cowash: HE The Sleeker The Butter, HE NOYF w/Mandarin
PT: hiatus for now
DT:Redken Diamond Oil Deep Facets
LI/Detangler: MyDNA, Nu-Gro Leave-in
