Take Back Your Hair Challenge Check-In

Hey divas,

We're half way through the month of September, so those of you who entered the "Take Back Your Hair" Challenge on September 1st (See September 1st Crew) should have either done a protein or a moisturizing deep conditioning treatment by now. I did my Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor Treatment on Thursday of last week, and will be doing my moisturizing treatment on the 24th.

For those of you who are confused about what exactly a deep conditioning treatment is or why their important, please check out the following posts for more details:

#2. Protein Treatments
#3. Olive Oil as A Conditioning Treatment

Good luck with the challenge ladies!





I did my first protein treatment Saturday, I also used Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor Treatment. I will do my deep condition this friday.

I did my Aphogee Treatment last week as well. But what I've noticed since I stopped relaxing my hair is that my hair feels so brittle when wet now. Even after the protein treatment and after a shampoo. Sometimes my deep conditioners make them feel softer but only when I add a bit of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to my hair during the process. Is that normal? Has anyone else ever experienced this? I'm assuming it is because of not getting a relaxer anymore. Any suggestions on what could change that?

Avillacorta, scroll down to read the response to today's reader question. In it I discuss how protein isn't as necessary during the transition process because the hair is more brittle. Please read on. XOXO

I did a protein treatment with Joico K-Pak DPR. I will do a moisturizing conditioning next week.

I did my ORS Replenishing Pack using the cheat a deep condition methodby drying a towel in the dryer, it really helped. Also for Avillacorta, I'm transitioning and I shampoo, use a rinse out conditioner to detangle and rinse out, then I do the deep condition, and finish with the leave in. I know it sounds like a lot, but it puts alot of moisture back into the hair. Also co-washing.

@AvillaCorta, I would recommend washing with DivaCurl No-poo if you want to shampoo instead of just co-washing. DivaCurl No-poo is a great product to cleanse the hair without stripping it and it feels soft on the hair. I would also recommend not to massage your hair when applying shampoo if you do so because it tangles your hair even more. @DPrincess28 I did my deep conditioning this Saturday the 12th with a dominican product called Germ Wheat. I posted a video referencing the product on youtube if anyone wants to view it. Its under my page dahazel17.
