Egg Protein


So as you're about to discover I probably haven't quite nailed the routine for a homemade protein treatment.

Previously after researching Protein Treatments I tried a particularly strong one by Aphogee.
(Click here to read my Intro 2 Protein Treatments)
(Click here to read How I got on with Aphogee PT)
If you read the results you'll see that it was way too strong for my hair. Its been at least 3 months since then so I figured now was a good time to try another PT but this time something more gentle.

However there's a few things Im still unsure of....
Should you pre-poo before a protein treatment? 
I don't know, but I did, using Extra Virgin Olive Oil and my favorite cheap conditioner (pictured below.)
I left that on over night...

Then I beat 2 eggs and began to apply - messily....

I divide my hair into 4-6 plaits before each wash.

I left the Egg on for about 30mins before rinsing it out. NOTE: ALWAYS RINSE OUT EGG WITH COLD WATER!! Otherwise it will scramble in your hair.

If the shampoo below looks a little random, it's because I was struggling to find a shampoo without sulphates that I thought could do the job of a clarifying shampoo in my local shopping centre. As you can see I  failed. LOL.

I was hoping maybe a clarifying shampoo would solve the scalp problems I mentioned (at this point I thought the problem may've just been a case of product build up), so this was the best I could find.

Again I'm not sure if trying to clarify your hair while doing a Protein Treatment is advisable but I was kinda desperate to do something as the scalp issues were getting on my nerves!

And if you're not keen to see what I mean my scalp problems, LOOK AWAY NOW! .... ... .... .... 


Sorry! Hope that hasn't put you off too much. I didn't notice anything amazing after this so Im gona write it off as a #Fail! But at least I know what not to do next time.

Just to let you know, this was alll done in July, since then I've had a lot more progress. Stay subscribed to find out how Im learning to save my scalp.
