This product is the best for immediate improvement in my hair. This is the only treatment ive used that i know for a fact makes my hair stronger. I do hate the smell. I have to pair it with a heavily purfumed conditioner to mask it. I also dislike the packaging. I wish it came in a easy to pour bottle like the ones for hair color. Edit: knocking this down a few since it contains animal proteins that can build up on the hair. Not cool.

Icky and god-awful stinky to apply. Do not manipulate hair in any way once applied, or you may suffer tangling and greater breakage. I applied this and sat under the hair drier for around 20 minutes. Rinse gently and thoroughly, then follow up with moisturizing conditioner for at least 10 minutes. The protein treatment irritated my skin (neck, shoulders, chest, and back), skin looked a little crepey and itchy. But this really works. My hair looked visibly stonger, healthier compared to the weepy, dried up birds nest it was before, and it feels great.Softer, and much fuller. I am double processed (relaxer and highlights), so I believe I will be using this product regularly every 6 weeks now.

This product has absolutely saved my hair! I am actually amazed at the condition of my hair after using this stuff.
I recently had a REALLY horrible highlighting experience at a salon I decided to try. My hair was already a little damaged fom previous highlights, and straightning it with a ceramic flat iron. I went to the salon to get highlights and she wanted to lift my roots because they were dark and it turned orange, so she decided to bleach all my roots. My hair was toned about 4 times then died brown because she realized the brassiness would not be eliminated with anymore bleach unless my hair fell out. My hair was brittle, dry with straw like qualities and an ugly mouse green brown! I went back a week later for more highlights and my hair was a little more dry after that but at least i could live with the color!
I started researching products on here for seriously damaged hair and this one really caugth my eye. The positive reviews seemed to really out-weigh the negative reviews, however I was still a little hesistant because the thought that my hair could break off and fall out when its hard really scared me! The lady at Sally beauty told me that its really nothing to worry about, just be cautious when the treatmant is hard and dried to you hair.
I used this blow dried my hair on high heat with low setting for a half hour, rinsed it out very gently then but the Aphogee balancing moisturizer in. I left it in under a shower cap for a good half hour, let it air dry and vola! My hair is actually in the same condition it was before I stepped foot into that salon! Its still not PERFECT but thats not what i was looking for, my hair actually feels healthy and not even brittle! I can't say enough about this stuff.

Yes, I agree w/the previous poster; this is one of the BEST protein treatments. It gets the job done! I have bleached naturally curly hair that I straighten twice a week. Because of my stupid experimentations I am suffering serious damage and breakage. Well Aphogee is keeping the hair that I do have ON my head so that I can grow it out and even it up. It makes my hair feel stronger and smoother, but only after I follow it up w/a great moisturizing conditioner. I leave Aphogee treatment on for about an hour and then follow up with my moisturizing conditioner for several hours with heat and sometimes overnight. You won't believe how soft your hair feels after doing this!

This treatment is absolutely fantastic - it actually fixes my damaged (Caucasian) hair, making it stronger and smoother! It's a pain to carry it out - you have to apply this (smelly) liquid treatment to wet hair, then dry it with a hairdryer, then rinse it out, then use a moisturizing conditioner - but the end result is amazing. It smells awful because of the protein in it, which is also what makes your hair hard when you dry it. Once you add some moisture back, though, it feels great. (I normally use Nexxus Humectress to moisturize afterward, and I think ApHogee actually markets a "balancing moisturizer" for use after this treatment.) I use ApHogee after every haircut, and whenever my hair is looking damaged and split(from my flat-iron, usually). It also saved my friend's hair, which was breaking off from all the coloring/drying/ironing she did.
