My Hair This Weekend



1. So last night I washed my hair with my Dr.Bonners Magic Soap Diluted Mix...

2. It was time for some much needed protein...So I next used the Aphogee 2min Reconstructor.....I left on hair with heating cap for 5 mins...Rinsed....I love , love the way this stuff leaves my hair feeling stronger yet soft all at the same time...

3. Next I applied my moisturizing conditioner....I ALWAYS FOLLOW UP PROTEIN WITH MOISTURE......I was running low on my Nexxus Humetress so I used the rest of it by mixing it with my GVP version of the Matrix Conditioning Balm and Coconut oil.....I applied in small sections making sure I got all of my new growth covered....I deep conditioned with heating cap for 35 mins....My hair feels amazingly soft.....I love it...

4. For a leave ins.....I first applied Aphogee Pro Vitamin Leave In Conditioner....Next applied Herbel Essence Long Term RelationshipLeave In, Next GVP version of CHI Silk InFusion...Last few drop of oil to lock in all the good stuff...


5. I then de tangled my hair in small sections ..Spreading all the leave ins and oil through hair...I use my Beverly Hills Nylon Bristle Brush...


6. I last braided my hair in six plaits and added rollers on the ends...Covered in scarf...And ready for bed now...


Quick Overview...

Wash

Protein

Moisture Conditioner
Leave Ins and Oil

Detangle

Plait and Braid



Total Time : 1 hour
Half of that time was letting the deep conditioner stay on hair..

Next....

Here are a few pics of the final look....As you can tell using my normal products to air dry...I got a much neater braid out ....With a lot more waves..( Much nicer and neater with no frizz lookin braid out than the one I got experimenting with the Wave Nouveau..)

  1. It came out lovely.I love that it was a short regimen. I found that alot of the long drwan out regimen discouraged me from weekly haircare. I had been on my hhj for almost a yr before I truly simplified my regimen.
    Do you think the GVP Silk Infusion is equal to CHI. CHI is on my wishlist, but I don't mind saving money.

  2. Beautiful results! Have you purchased the Aphogee shampoo? If so, have you tried it and how is it? If not, do you think you will? Why or why not?

  3. Anonymous, I have the Aphogee for Damaged hair shampoo and it left my hair sooo dry. I had tangles and everything. I might have to retire that one. I shouldn't have to use conditioner to try and undo the moisture that was lost from the sulfates in the Aphogee, but I do love the other Aphogee products... Thanks Traycee for your blog it is well laid out and helpfull!! Marie

  6. LaQT: The GVP Silk Infusion is in no way the same product as the Chi version. Its greasy whereas the Chi product is light and doesn't build up. The Chi is worth every penny.

  8. Looks good! I'm still trying to perfect my braidout technique. I've always noticed that yours lays flat to your head at the front. Mine usually comes out very puffy the closer I get to my scalp. Do you have any suggestions on how to fix that? Thanks Traycee!

  9. Your hair looks great!

    P.S.-Do you like the GVP version of the Silk Infusion? I was thinking of purchasing that to save some money.

  12. @ LaQT....I the GVP Version is not the same...I don't get the build up and oily results the young lady was talking about but it is slightly different..But close enough for me to save a couple of dollars ..So its a keeper

    @ Anonymous...No I haven't tried the Aphogee Shampoo and won't ..I no longer use shampoo's....I dilute Dr.Bonners Magic soap with oils and water..So no more shampoo for me..

    @ Anonymous....That is why I stopped using shampoos ..Oh and Thanks

    @ Jmilz....Thanks

    @ Heat Styled Natural..Thanks Sis

    @ Tiffer...Thanks

    @ Brittany....What I do is the front braid on each side ...I corn row to my scalp and the rest I just braid and plait...But the key to the flatness in air drying with the satin scarf...

    Dania...Yes it comes kinda close to the real deal
