I LOVE MY HAIR!! This IS a love story, not a hate story, not a struggle story (well maybe a trial and error story!) My hair story began before I "big chopped" June 30th, 2004, and I've been infatuated with all things natural since. I'm sharing to encourage, to support, and to captivate the minds of those who are curious...being natural is a wonderful sensation!
It's late but I just couldn't go to sleep without at least putting a little something down about my "project". I've been contemplating doing a protein treatment after watching Richeau (Empress Ri) and Taren916 post about their experiences on YouTube (yes, I said I was a YouTube junkie!) Well, I bought the Aphogee 2-Step treatment almost a couple weeks back but just now was brave enough to try it. After seeing how crazy it looks (and about how bad it smells) I was none too enthused, but figured if it could help strengthen my hair then what the heck!
My little adventure actually started last night when I shampooed my hair. I used Suave Clarifying shampoo because I needed my hair to be thoroughly clean, as per instructions on the Aphogee treatment. I don't miss the feeling of stripped hair, although it was clean, it just felt weird! But clean lol!
My hair was ROUGH!!
With shampoo, detangled w/ Denman
I did a video showing this stage but I'm still trying to get over my nerves...something about watching myself on video is strange and I'm not real sure about editing either. But I used my handy dandy shower comb and my new Denman D83 brush to detangle so that was pretty cool. I must say, although I love the ability to detangle a larger section of hair at a time, the balls on the end of the teeth can be rough on your hair. I experienced that a few times while detangling, so I think I'll use the shower comb first, and then follow with the Denman, carefully! That's all I can muster tonight, but I will add the remainder of my protein treatment experience tomorrow.
