Two-Step Protein Treatment

(3 customer reviews)


The Two-Step Protein Treatment process was developed to repair severely damaged hair including hair that is breaking off, over processed, over bleached, severely damaged, and it can also be used as a pre-treatment to coloring hair. No method is better at repairing damaged hair than a two-step approach. This remedial process is highly recommended for hair that:

    • Is too weak or fine to take a perm or relaxer. (use the week PRIOR to service)
    • Is over-bleached.
    • Will not hold color. (use PRIOR to color application for 30% less fade after 10 Shampoos)
    • Breaks when combed or brushed.
    • Is mushy when wet and brittle after drying.

The Balancing Moisturizer is a necessary second step. Sold separately.

  1. Leave hair uncovered, DO NOT use a plastic cap. Seat client under medium heat dryer, with high airflow. (Alternatively, a hand dryer may be used, but hair SHOULD NOT be agitated while drying.) NOTE: When ApHogee Treatment is dried into the hair, the hair becomes extremely hard. DO NOT comb or brush hair while ApHogee Treatment is dried and in the hair.

    Been using this product since high school. If you hair is damaged whether natural or relaxed I would recommend. Use directly as instructed.
