I remember watching a video about taking care of extremely damaged hair and the girl using a white and purple deep conditioner, so when I went to Sally asking for the best one the had and she handled me the same one, I was quite surprised. I am talking about the Aphogee Keratin 2 Minute Reconstructor (not the protein treatment!) and it has been a savior for my hair.
This is supposed to be used as a deep conditioning mask, one, up to two times a week. The directions are pretty simple, after shampooing, put it in your towel dried hair, not the scalp, and wait two minutes, although it says you can use it up to 5 minutes if your hair has some extra damage (like mine, hehe).
I have been using this for two months straight, every time I wash my hair, usually two times a week. As you may know, my hair is as damaged as it can get and everytime I use it, it gets softer and softer and looks healthier and healthier. Usually, when I do a ponytail, my hair is so fried that it will stick up defying gravity (yup, just like Misty), but when I use it, it lays down beautifully again, it looks shinier, softer and less frizzy, it even looks like hair again.
This is $12 USD at Sally Beauty Supply and it is worth every penny, and to be honest, I think it is actually pretty inexpensive for the quality you get. If it does wonders for my Barbie-like plastic hair, imagine what it can do for yours, so if you are having some hair problems, I say don’t think twice!
