We found that using Aloe Vera along with Behentrimonium Methosulfate creates a more effective protein treatment.
Aloe Vera paired with Behentrimonium Methosulfate act as a carrier for the proteins allowing them to further penetrate the hair shaft to minimize protein build-up.
Ingredients: Distilled water, aloe vera, behentrimonium methosulfate, hydrolyzed keratin, hydrolyzed silk protein, hydrolyzed collagen, jojoba protein, wheat protein, gluconolactone and sodium benzoate (natural preservative).
Directions: Gently cleanse hair with shampoo. Rinse & towel dry. Saturate hair with Protein Hair Strengthener and comb with fingers for even distribution.
For easy application part hair in fourths. Do not use a plastic cap. Sit under medium heat dryer for a more intense treatment. A hand dryer may be used, but hair should not be agitated while drying.
Do not comb or brush hair while Protein Hair Strengthener is dried on hair. Gently rinse with warm water. Follow with conditioner.

At first when the consistency of this product changed from a liquid to a lotion,I must admit I was concerned. This product is now easier to use and I use less of it. I still end up with soft, strong hair so it will continue to be a keeper for me. I am doing a protein treatment with it as we speak and am sitting under the dryer. You also can't beat the price/quality of this product. It is a more natural less toxic alternative to Aphoghee 2 step and seems lovely too!!! :)
I wanted to try something other than the Aphogee two step protein treatment so I decided to get this. I'm glad I did! It's not as messy and works very well.
I'm not even sure where to start. This is a wonderful, wonderful product. The ingredients are great, it's fairly easy to use, it smells good, and most importantly, it works. My hair felt stronger, healthier and just...better as soon as I rinsed it out. I'm so pleased. I've only used it once, but already know that its going to become a staple for me.
Wow! I had the best hair week using this. This is just a terrific treatment. The only minus is this: I have a lot of hair that requires I shampoo/condition in sections, otherwise it's just a hassle. Upon application, I have to undo my sections and leave them free since it says not to agitate the hair. Which means upon rinsing, I have to re-section during the follow-up conditioner. But the results are well worth it. It just becomes an even longer process during hair wash day. But my coarse, wiry 4c hair loves and craves protein and this really delivers. A big fat rave.
have been a natural forever, but never really took good care of my hair until about 4 years ago when I learned all the basics about proper combing, washing, conditioning etc. I always thought naturals didn't need protein. But over the last four years my hair still never really flourished despite the proper grooming methods because my hair would break every time I touched it, even if I just was applying a moisturizer. I use all natural products so I wanted something that would work well, but also had natural ingredients. This protein treatment is wonderful. After using it the FIRST time I was able to touch/pull/manipulate my hair with no breakage. At all. A week has passed and I have a tiny bit of breakage, but nothing compared to what it was like before. Im talking about a few tiny pieces after combing etc compared to lots and lots of breakage from simply touching it. I'm going use this product weekly, then bi weekly until I notice no breakage during the week and then I will switch to every 4-6 weeks or really just use it when I feel the need. Personally it doesn't make my hair soft, but I don't think protein treatments are suppose to. All you have to do is apply a deep conditioner afterwards like its suggested with all protein treatments. I am definitely ordering more of this product, and will be checking out other products while I am on here. Oh and the shipping was lightening fast, which is a plus for me. I recommend this product.
If I could give this product zero stars I would. I used this product as the label said before I could finish using this product in my hair it created a build up of knots in my hair to where i had to cut a big chuck of my hair out of my head in order to comb through it. it was so matted I would never recommend this product to anyone unless u want to lose all of your hair
