So, I've been experiencing a lot of breakage. I know my hair needed protein because my hair was feeling a little mushy. Well at least that is what I figured it was when I touched my hair after washing and it felt like I still had product in it. This was after washing my hair several times just in case. It's been like this for a few months, btw. I was just afraid to use protein because I wasn't sure how my hair would react to it.

Then someone suggested using egg. So I did this once a week for 2 weeks after I DC'd with my ORS pak. Afterwards I'd put some Wave Noveau moisturizing finishing lotion on my hair. I didn't notice a change. Then on Monday I decided to try the Aphogee 2 minute. I used it as a DC and then cowashed with V05 Moisture Milks conditioner afterwards. After three weeks of protein I still see no change when I comb my hair. Am i being impatient? Should I try the Aphogee again next week or use egg?

I have no idea why there still seems to feel buildup on your hair but I would definitely use the protein. If it doesn't work or if you're afraid, then you should keep a moisture rich DC on the side just in case.

I've used protein 3 times, egg twice and aphogee 2 min once. I am going to use it for 3 more weeks and see what happens.

No maybe I need to do that. I'll probably buy some ACV this weekend or get a shampoo. Can you suggest a good clarifying shampoo??

How much moisture are you using in your hair? I see a lot of protein, but you need both.

Maybe try some hot oil treatments...I have been just using my olive oil mixtures pre washing. Saturate your hair with the oil and put a cap and use heat for about 10 mins.

I use a lot of moisture. My DC has moisture and I use a moisturizing conditioner and then afterwards I put Wave Noveau moisturzing finishing lotion or sometimes I use my Elasta QP Mango Butter or Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In.

Definitely clarify before using your protein.  I like VO5 Kiwi/Lime Clarifying Shampoo but you can also use baking soda and water with ACV.  I've done both and they worked fine.

If you pull your hair when wet, does it stretch, stretch, stretch, then break?
