When to use Aphogee 2-step protein treatment

  1. A few days to a week before you relax your hair. When you relax your hair, the relaxer breaks down protein bonds in your hair. Using Aphogee 2-step treatment just before your relax your hair helps to enrich your hair with protein and minimise the potential damage from relaxers. Many people use this treatment for this purpose.
  2. Every 6 weeks as a way to incorporate protein conditioners into your hair care regimen. As it is a very strong treatment, it is advised that you use it at intervals of not less than 6 weeks.
  3. On damaged hair/a few days after relaxing your hair. Wait at least 24 hours after relaxing before using Aphogee 2-step.
  4. Before colouring your hair.

In the past, I have not had good experience using this Aphogee two step protein treatment cos’ I was left with hair that felt so hard, brittle and difficult to comb. This time, I armed myself with conditioners that I knew would do the job of softening my hair after the treatment.

How to use Aphogee two step treatment

These are the steps you should follow when doing an Aphogee 2-step protein treatment (for whatever reason you choose):

  1. First clarify your hair. I didn’t bother clarifying because I had washed my hair very well on my relaxer day which was just a few days before this treatment.
  2. It’s watery and can get messy. Put it in a spray bottle if you have one. if you have any old bottle of detangling spray, you could use this. Spray it generously all over your hair.
  3. Comb through your hair from the roots upwards (lightly) to spread the treatment.
  4. When it dries, it can get hard and stick to anything it dries on. If your hair is longer than armpit length, you might want to just tie a towel. Otherwise, it will stick to your blouse when it is dry.
  5. Sit underneath a dryer. If you don’t have one, use a blow dryer but be careful not to manipulate your hair as it dries. If you don’t have any dryer at all, go about your day until it to use aphogee two step sitting under my dryer
  6. When it dries, stand underneath the shower allowing the water to just run through your hair. Don’t manipulate your hair until you feel it soften up.
  7. After you have rinsed it off completely, you can now apply Aphogee balancing moisturizer. I personally don’t think that this is strong enough to reverse the hardness from the Two-step treatment so you should follow up with another conditioner. If you don’t have the balancing moisturizer, Roux Porosity Control Conditioner is a good alternative.I applied Roux Porosity Control Conditioner to my hair for about 3 minutes before rinsing it off.
  8. You can proceed to style you hair if you wish. However, I advise that you use a very good moisturizing conditioner to get your hair back to a soft state.
  9. Dry and style your hair as you normally would!
