Hi guys,
   I don't know if I have mentioned it before but I have been shedding like crazy for months. I don't know how I still have any hair left on my head. My hair is also breaking and doesn't seem to retain moisture as much as it used to. After a really terrible day of detangling( I use a wide tooth comb now) and I knew I had to get help. I have seen quite a few Instagram testimonials on the Aphogee 2 Step Protein Treatment so I decided to try it out. Its a hard protein treatment that promises to stop breakage and shedding. I read a few reviews online first then I got right into it.

I decided to get the sachets since its my first time. The white sachet contains the protein treatment while the lilac sachet is the balancing moisturiser.  N1000 

The instructions were simple.

To begin I laid out my products. From left to right- Aussie moist conditioner , applicator bottle, ORS shampoo, ORS replenishing conditioner(DC) and the Aphogee treatment.

  • I thoroughly detangled my hair. I did this because the treatment makes hair very hard so to prevent severe tangling and breakage during the process its best to detangle first.
  • Shampooed with the ORS creamy Aloe shampoo. Its best to shampoo the hair before applying a protein treatment to get the best results.
  • Sectioned my hair into 4 twists to make my hair easier to manage.

Freshly shampooed twists
  • After reading the instructions I donned plastic gloves and set to work. I opened the sachet and poured its contents into an applicator bottle to make it easier to apply and to reduce spillage.
  • I applied the treatment liberally on each twist concentrating on the ends before I moved up to the roots.
  • When I was done I brought out my long abandoned blow-dryer to dry the hair. I wish I could have skipped this step but I wanted to follow the instructions on the pack to the letter so I could get the best results. I blow-dried on a  medium setting for about 15minutes. The hair became really hard and shrunk up into 4 small balls.

I poured the treatment into the applicator bottle.

I loosened the twists to shorten drying time. After 15 minutes of blow-drying my hair was as hard as the bristles of a scrubbing brush and it had shrunk to a TWA

  • As soon as the treatment dried up I went under the shower and let warm water run down my hair till the treatment washed out. I did not agitate the hair at all. I just let the water do the work.
  • After I rinsed thoroughly with warm water I applied the accompanying balancing moisturiser( lilac sachet) all over my hair and I left it on for two minutes before rinsing it off.  My hair felt  like it had lost 60 % of its length. its wasn't as soft as I wanted it to be so I immediately co washed with the Aussie Moist conditioner. After I rinsed off I deep conditioned with the ORS replenishing conditioner.

Right after rinsing out the protein treatment

After conditioning with Aussie Moist I got some of my length back

After deep conditioning my hair felt a lot softer and less shrunken

After doing the treatment I wasn't sure if I would go through the process again because of the blow-drying required. This was the first time I was using heat in over two years and I wasn't too pleased but i soon had a change of mind when I saw my results:

Incredible right?
Aphogee recommends the treatment be done every 6 weeks but I think that's too often for my hair. I must say that while my hair feels stronger and the shedding has lessened considerably my hair feels a lot drier. I'm constantly moisturising now and I might get a trim soon. All in all the treatment packs a solid protein punch and i will revisit it in due time.  

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. I pray my hair doesnt break o cos I'm way too lazy to follow these step. Crushing on your hair length.

    1. come on girl! You cant afford to be lazy. This natural hair business requires diligence o

  2. Great review dear! I love the treatment for when I'm too lazy to henna and from salon experience, it's a hair saver for damaged relaxed hair.

    1. Thanks doll. I'm saving my strength for henna now.

  3. I doubt I'll be doing this, My own hair laziness is out of this world, I haven't even tried the henna I bought 4months ago... I need the natural spirit of trying new things

  4. My hair is relaxed and has had its fair share of shedding and breaking. It would benefit from a protein treatment..which I've never done.
    But do I have the patience for this?. Maybe I will try it.

  5. I have always wanted to try this but have had some doubts due to it's mixed reviews. But after reading this detailed review, I'm going to give it a try. Thanks for sharing this! Great review!

Hi guys,
     I hope you are all doing well. I have missed blogging so much and I feel really good that I can now so it more often since my schedule is getting a bit less crowded. I also hope you like the new blog design.
    If you live in Nigeria then you are aware that things are getting out of hand financially. The recession is hitting really hard and it seems no one is immune. Inspite of this I do not want my Fro to suffer so I am working on making a lot of homemade products and utensils to ensure my hair doesn't feel the strain of the harsh economy.

The best way to comb your natural hair

Hi there,
  Combing natural hair has always been a problem. There is a lot of pain involved but that's not the only challenge combing presents. Combing your hair is a major cause of hair breakage, remember those balls of hair you remove from your comb each time you comb?  Here are some tips to help you minimize breakage from combing:

Use the right tool
 Never use a fine tooth comb for your hair. It is better to use a wide toothed comb. This will reduce hair breakage. If you must use a fine tooth comb ensure you have thoroughly detangled and combed with a wide tooth comb first. Also make sure the teeth of the comb is seamless to avoid ripping out your hair as you comb.

Comb your hair only when it is damp
 Your hair is weakest when it is dripping wet and so combing it then will cause it to break.On the other hand combing your hair when it is dry will also break it off because your hair is not as flexible as it should be. When your hair is damp it can better withstand the force of…

This time its the ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER. Do not let the name fool you, it's actually a deep conditioner and not a wash out conditioner. Here's my honest review:
