    I have just recently bought Aphogee but did not try it yet; alot of people say it is drying so use once in a while like every 2 months or when needed....immediately after an Aphogee treatment follow up with a moisterizing conditioner. The only reason I haven't tried yet is because I am about to try my henna treatment pretty soon!!

    You rang? B) I'd only go into this much detail for you and EmpressRi. :wub:

    I use it every 6 weeks as a prevention tool on my ends. Every since I BC and immediately began using Aphogee (upon the suggestion of my line sister), I've had zero breakage, and I'd like to keep it this way. :yes:

    First you need to figure out if your hair is sensitive to protein or not. Mix half a capful of the Aphogee with a creme protein conditioner (e.g. Nexxus Keraphix or Joico K-Pak) and see how your hair responds. Rinse it clean and follow up with a super moisturizing DT mixed with olive oil. If this works, you can start using Aphogee.

    Start off by detangling your hair with conditoner. Then proceed to -->

    Step 1: Clarify your hair completely. I recommend using a sulfate shampoo from a drugstore --> some of the harsh stuff. (For Aphogee to work, it needs to be able to penetrate the hair shaft. Buildup from other products or conditioner washing will prevent this.)
    Step 2: Let your hair stay wet. Put on gloves if you have a cut on your hand and avoid getting the product in your eyes 'cause it will burn worse than shampoo.
    Step 3: Separate your hair into 6 sections and clip them.
    Step 4: Since you have long hair, I recommend putting Aphogee into a small styrofoam cup and adding water to it. (About 1/2 and 1/2.) Take one section and dunk your ends into it. Then apply some straight from the bottle to the shaft and smooth. DO NOT COMB THROUGH!
    Step 5: Sit under the dryer for 15 minutes without a plastic cap or anything on. I have to clip the back of my hair up so it'll all fit under there.
    Step 6: Rinse with warm water for awhile.
    Step 7: Use Cream of Nature Shampoo (green bottle) to wash the Aphogee out. If you don't have this, do not use any other kind of shampoo. Instead, use one of the Suave condtioners and wash.
    Step 8: Mix together a hot oil treatment and a DT. Cover with plastic cap and sit under dryer for 20 minutes.
    Step 9: Rinse out and put in your hair products. However, do not use any styling products --> no gels, no activators, no serums, etc. because they actually prevent moisture from penetrating your hair. And your hair is going to already be dry due to the Aphogee. I suggest using a light leave-in and a butter on top of that --> something like Curl Junkie or Oyin's Whipped Pudding. I know Spiral will suggest Blended Beauty.

    Let me know if you have any questions. ^_^ (I'll go post this in my album.)

    MissEmbrya, you are wonderful :wub: I didn't post, but I've been viewing these posts because I'm going to do an Amphogee treatment for the first time tomorrow. I've been experiencing some breakage in the front of my hair on the side that I sleep on. Anyway getting such detailed information from someone who's clearly experienced in using this product was a godsend. Once again, thank you!

    I did an Aphogee for the first time since I stopped coloring the other day and I'd forgotten how well my hair just responds to it in general. Color process or no, my hair leans towards the fragile side and Aphogee does me solid. (Although I'm no where NEAR as precise about it as Miss Embrya. Those instructions are for real. :lol: . I'll have to try some of that myself next time! )

    Dang. You've really got my number. :lol:

    Those were awesome instructions, practically a handbook for Aphogee. I just have one question: I understand why heat is necessary - it bonds the proteins to hair strands, making them stronger. But, is it possible to use a heating cap instead of a dryer? Or is the dryer essential?

    :bow: You all are welcome. This is supposed to be a "salon only" product which costs about $15-$30+ to get done at the salon --> that's why there aren't any instructions on the bottle. So I experimented until I got it right. I'll do anything to destroy the current cosmetology establishment. :P

    :blush: You're so cool. :wub:

    U just figured that out? :whistling:

    To answer your question, the dryer is essential because the Aphogee process hardens your hair --> like a brick when you're under the dryer. Your hair should feel completely dry and like it would break if you combed it after the 15 minutes under the dryer. It should be that hard.

    If you used a heating cap, the strands of your hair would stick to it and bond there. And you'd have to rip your hair out to get it loose. Ya gotta have space. :yes:

    DISCLAIMER: MissEmbrya is not responsible for any adverse reactions that occur with using said Aphogee. Product may cause itching, burning, erectile dysfunction, and explosive diarrhea. :unsure:

    Ya'll ain't gonna sue me. :icon_headshake:
