Combat Frizz and Get Popping Curls With This Protein Treatment on Your Natural Hair!

My hair has been fully natural now for about two and a half months. Since I did the big chop I have been doing moisture based deep conditions once a week. I do not have a benchmark against which to judge whether my hair is doing great or not. However, what I know is that my curls are not clumping the way I would want them to without product in my hair. See exhibit A below- very frizzy.

 

Based on this observation and a little research I have decided to incorporate a protein deep conditioner into my routine. I know there are other things like Clay and Henna that might be able to remedy this issue but I need to do some more research before I start reaching for those Ayurvedic products. Plus I have prior experience using protein while on my relaxed hair journey so I inherently felt comfortable giving protein a try before anything else.



In picking a protein treatment I decided to forego my all time favourite ORS Hair Mayonnaise to go with something I always wanted to try but never did: the Aphogee Two Step Protein Treatment.

Curly Hair Products I am Dying To Try

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Ever since I started my transition and especially now that I am completely natural  I can’t stop fantacizing about the styles I want to try, and the products I want to use. I decided to compile a list of the top ten products I want to try. Sort of like a bucket list that I will tick off one by one and see if they are all worth the hype.  You might find this helpful if you are natural and are searching for products to improve the health of your hair. If you are a more experienced natural please feel free let me know if you have already tried any of the products on my list and how they worked for you.

My picks are based on the reviews of some of my favourite Youtubers. These products should work well on Type 4 hair which is my hair type based on what I have observed so far. I have categorised them based on their purposes. So I ended up with five categories which are:

    • Cleansers
    • Deep Conditioners /Masques
    • Detanglers/ Rinse Out Conditioners
    • Leave-in Conditioners/Moisturisers
    • Stylers /Gels



I have included clickable pictures (where I could find links) so that you can view each product in greater detail.

Ecoco the manufacturers of the Ecostyler Gel line has recently added some new Gel formulas to their line of styling gels. These include the Coconut Oil Gel and the Black Castor and Flaxseed Oil Gels.

Prior to now the only gel I used was the Ecostyler Olive Oil Gel. As fate would  have it I ran out and went to repurchase but it was out of stock at my local beauty supply store out and my only choice was to pick up the Back Castor and Flaxseed Oil Gel and hope it wouldn’t disappoint.
