Protein Treatments-Part 3

December 24, 2009

It was my third protein treatment and I was all set to try an egg and honey recipe that I had found online.  Instead, I decided to stick to the old adage “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”.  So, I went back to my original conditioner and egg mix for my hair’s monthly dose of protein.

When I first tried this type of protein treatment the results were a bit lackluster.  I came to the conclusion that the conditioner I used was all wrong not the technique.  This time I used Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa Conditioner* which contains soy protein.  It’s not as super thick as I like my conditioners to be, but it was sufficient (and very inexpensive at just under $3).  I mixed the conditioner with one egg and applied it to freshly washed hair.  I put on a plastic cap and wrapped my head with a towel.  After about an hour, I rinsed it out thoroughly.

Since moisturizing treatments are recommended after protein treatments, I followed with my trusty olive oil and conditioner deep treatment (love it).  My hair felt as lovely as it always does after moisturizing treatments.

I will most likely be sticking to a protein conditioner (with or without eggs mixed in) for my strengthening routine.  Which conditioner I use may be the only element subject to change as I like the Trader Joe’s conditioner but I don’t love it.  I’ve read good things about Aubrey Organics Island Naturals Replenishing Conditioner which contains almond protein.  If Island Naturals is anything like AO’s Honey Suckle Rose Moisturizing Conditioner, I just might love it.  Creamy conditioner treatments are here to stay for me; I like the simplicity of them.
