Well, let me describe my hair : Very curly and dry, not relaxed for 1.5 years but still have about 4-5 inches past the shoulders that are relaxed (and very damaged) only color now when I need to.

I used this for the first time a few weeks ago and thought I would see what happened after the first few nights just to be sure. I concur with the other users that this is definitely the "Mother" of all treatments... I've tired most everything to help my hopeless hair. But this was amazing. I did do the treatment as described in Katdan's notepad, but I did start to have some breakage a few days later up until now. I definitely don't think it's a miracle product but by ALL MEANS, it has definitely helped my hair more than anything else, so if you have severely damaged hair, don't hesitate to try this.

The only thing I did differently was I let air dry for a couple of hours and then rinsed, using a hair mayonnaise treatment for a conditioner after. I think where I went wrong was not letting the solution come completely out of my hair... next time I'm going to rinse for about 7 minutes to make sure I get all the protein out. Because of that last time, it left my hair VERY SOFT, but slightly gummy. I will still use this product and find the best way to use it. I would recommend this to anyone with damaged hair.

Wow. I just got a short haircut because I felt like my hair was damaged beyond repair -I wish I would have tried Aphogee first. I used it for the first time on the hair I have left, and the texture of my hair DRASTICALLY improved after 1 treatment. I have thin, baby fine wavy hair that was looking incredibly frizzy, but now it's looking much smoother and it even feels thicker. I used Aphogee about a week ago and I can still see a difference.
Now I just have to keep myself from overdoing it and using too much protein on my hair!
Other viewers are spot on, though -this smells like cat pee and makes everything very sticky. Be very careful to follow the directions.

This is the granddaddy of all protein treatments and it positively saved my over-processed, dry, brittle hair. My hair was literally breaking off. after a botched Japanese Straight Perm, when I decided to try this product, instead of a drastic haircut. I simply washed my hair,applied the product, let it dry for 40 minutes and conditioned (I used the Aphogee Moisturizing Conditioner but in the future, I'd use something more moisturing). I was shocked at how healthy my hair looked afterwards.

I definitely feel that my hair is stronger after using this.

I've been going back to my natural blonde after dying my hair brunette for years. Even though I've been doing it gradually, it still is making some pieces kind of break off. Especially in the front.

And it was feeling very straw like.

I used this product as directed and I noticed less strands in my comb, and softer, stronger feeling hair.

As a skeptic, I didn't really believe this would work. But I'm glad I tried it cause it proved me wrong.

I highly recommend this.

In 3 days i bleached my hair 3 times and colored my hair 3 times. It was like GUM.I was thinking to cut it all off except one inch from the roots and to get some kind of miracle extensions or a wig until i found these reviews here. I went immediately and purchased this treatment .I had to use it almost everyday, i think i used it 4 or 5 times and now a week later i have hair again. I had a "trim" too and my hairdresser was amazed that i still have hair after all this .I just want to thank everyone who wrote a review here otherwise I would be bald by now. THANK YOU

Amazing! I have bleached blond hair and I dye the roots every 3 or 4 weeks. My hair was brittle, dry although I always used a moisturizer after washing and 2 a month a deep conditioning hair mask. I have used it 3 times (every 6 weeks) and my hair feels after this treatment so soft. It shines, and bounces like the hair in TV-mmercials.

BUT..you only get this result after you follow the treatment with DEEP CONDITIONING!
That means after rinsing the aphogee (half hour blow drying) you MUST use a conditioner/hair mask (I wrap some transparant folie over it) and use the warm blow dryer again for about 15 minutes.

This product did stop the breakage the first time I used it. I don't like the mess you are forced to make when you apply it, so I don't use it that often.

Best hair product I've ever used. My hair is extremely thin/fine, wavy and breaks so I've never been able to grow it very long. This actually made it stronger and thicker too. It hasn't been breaking and looks so much fuller and better. It's wavier and less frizzy too.
