Product Showcase: Aphogee 2-Minute Keratin Reconstructor Treatment

Every now and again, we all need a protein treatment. I use this when my hair feels weak and malliable.The best type of protein is keratin, since that is what most of our integumental tissues are made up;as in hair,nails,and skin. My purpose for using protein treatments is to strengthen my hair.The secret behind protein treatments is timing. Leave it in too long and your hair will become hard and brittle, causing breakage. Don't leave it in long enough, and your hair won't benefit from it. The directions say two minutes, but for my hair, I leave it in for 3 minutes. Sometimes, I sit under a hooded dryer set on low, after it has been on high for a while to become warm. I find it at most beauty supply stores, but most definetely at Sally's. It's sold in 8-12oz bottles ,but I buy the cut-and-open package.
