Rated 5 out of 5 by xoMissMandersxo SAVED MY LIFE
I recently had Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) and because of my illness, my (already bleached) hair follicles were weakened substantially, so when i went to get my hair redone, my hair could not withstand the color treatments. I've been coloring my hair for 5 years and this is the first time my hair has ever CRACKED OFF. Every time id touch my hair, my fingers would be full of hair. Every time I'd brush my hair, I'd have to rip a huge wad of hair off of my brush, and every time I'd shower MY DRAIN WOULD GET CLOGGED WITH ALL OF THE HAIR I WAS LOSING. I'm 18 years old and thought I had alopecia (sudden hair loss). I even went to a salon and spent 60 dollars on an Olaplex treatment and buying Olaplex No 3. Nothing was working. Until i found this...
This treatment (plus an inch trim off of my long, bleach blonde hair) has almost completely stopped the excessive shedding and breaking. I'm still losing more strands than normal, however, I can finally go a day without crying my eyes out. My hair felt stronger and healthier with just one use. I will be trying out the Aphogee Keratin 2 minute repair until my next 2 step protein treatment in hopes that my hair breakage will finally come to an end after a long and miserable month.
I 100% STAND BY THIS PRODUCT FOR ANYONE WHO HAS COLORED THEIR HAIR AND IS LOSING IT ALL.
disclaimer: I do NOT recommend this product for anyone that regularly gets keratin straightening treatments done at the salon because it could cause a protein overload and cause the hair to break off. Stick to the deep conditioners and moisturizing products instead!

Rated 4 out of 5 by fabfitnat Finally, a suggestion that works!
I started transitioning from relaxed to natural about two years ago. Since then, I have been on the hunt for products that will make my hair thicker, stronger, thus minimizing breakage. Recently, I decided to clip away my damaged ends and apply a protein treatment at home, as I am tired of paying all of the extra fees for my hair stylist. I walked in to Sally Beauty Supply with guarded optimism. When asking the sales associate for a protein treatment recommendation, she directed me towards the Aphogee isle. Buy 2 get 1 free, so, I figured I would load up and invest in me. I purchased the Shampoo for damaged hair, Two-Step Protein Treatment and the Keratin 2 minute Reconstructor. I followed the directions for the shampoo (one wash which was great), sat under the dryer with the Protein treatment until my hair was somewhat dry and crunchy, then followed up with the Keratin Reconstructor under the hooded dryer as well. Not sure if that was the best way to do the final step, but my hair felt instantly better and I had hardly any breakage as I manipulated my hair for my twistout.
My color looks more vibrant, hair is softer, and curls are poppin!! A lot of words to say, believe the hype, but make sure that your hair actually needs protein before you use the treatment.
Words of advice- Be prepared for a sticky runny mess as others have stated. Allow ample time to complete all of the steps and deep condition afterwards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jai87 Love it!
My hair was so damaged and brittle after too much hair color change plus bleaching. I was looking for something to help my hair as I was trying to grow it. I found this at Sally's and tried it because there's nothing to lose. I got home and used it immediately. It took me around 30 mins from application to blow drying my hair with the product in it. I followed the directions to a T. While I was rinsing my hair, I already notice a difference. I then proceed with the application of the aphogee balance moisturizer, I left it on for 5 minutes, rinsed it out and applied a deep conditioner for 15 minutes. After all that, my hair was noticeably stronger and the ends seemed healthier and some of the split ends were gone (not that i missed them. lol.) I am so delighted that this product actually works. I didn't expect much from the start but I was amazed with the results. I combed my hair and there was no hair breakage. I will use this again in 6 weeks as recommended... Thanks Sally's and Aphogee!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GoooodPancake It actually works!
To be honest I really wasn't expecting much from this product but I was pleasantly surprised. I'm not a hair professional but even I could use it. I followed the instructions to the T and it worked amazingly . A++
