  • Ideal for permed, tinted or relaxed hair Rebuilds hair structure for six weeks Stops hair breakage
    Aphogee Two Step Protein Treatment is a unique treatment formulated with magnesium and modified proteins which fuse into the hair with the application of heat. The result is that breakage is drastically reduced. ApHogee Two-Step Protein Treatment is a salon service product unlike any product available for at-home use. During the process, ApHogee treatment hardens into the hair, dramatic evidence that something special is occurring.
  • Shake well before use. Gently cleanse hair with ApHogee Shampoo. Rinse thoroughly and towel blot. Apply enough ApHogee Treatment to thoroughly saturate hair and comb blend for even distribution. Leave hair uncovered. Do not use a plastic cap, and seat client under medium heat dryer. (Alternatively, a hand dryer may be used, but hair should not be agitated while drying.)


    Note: When ApHogee Treatment is dried into the hair, the hair becomes extremely hard. Do not comb or brush hair while ApHOGEE Treatment is dried and in the hair. Re-wet and gently rinse thoroughly with warm water.


    Apply ApHogee Moisturizer to hair and scalp. Leave for 2 minutes, then rinse thoroughly. Proceed to next service or style as usual.

  • CAUTION: Please read and follow instructions on back label carefully! Use Aphogee Balancing Moisturizer after use of the Two Step Protein Treatment. Requires heat for best results. When protein has dried, do not bend or agitate hair. Always rinse thoroughly with luke warm water and follow with Balancing Moisturizer. For color treated hair, it is best to use prior to freshining color. Two-Step Protein Treatment is for Professional Use. For best results a hooded dryer is required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I had bleached my hair to the point of no return, or so I thought. I used this and it stopped the breakage and made it so that I could actually brush my hair. It’s amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXTREMELY pleased I've had long hair my whole life until I went on a really impulsive dying streak a few months ago. I got my hair dyed and bleached four times in two months (yes, I knew this would be the end of my hair), and I ultimately had to chop it up to my chin. Even though the cut helped a lot, I still had some damage on the ends. I have been using Olaplex shampoo, and my naturally wavy (2b) hair has been VERY flat and straight for weeks because my hair always flattens WAY out when I use sulfate-free shampoo. I've been extremely frustrated by this, and considered switching back to a shampoo with sulfates, but I really want my hair to be as healthy as it can be, so I did some research and came upon Aphogee. I am SO SO SO glad I did. I bought this yesterday at Sally's, and I used it right away. I bought the Aphogee shampoo, two-step, and moisturizer, and a deep conditioner from Shea Moisture. I'm not sure why, but the mixture didn't smell bad at all to me, and I hardly found it sticky, which is contrary to almost every review I've read. I'm not sure if they improved their formula, but it seems perfect to me. I really let it harder all the way when I blow-dried it, and didn't touch it AT ALL while I was drying it. The results once I air dried my hair were amazing. This is the first time I've seen my natural texture in so long, and I'm absolutely thrilled. Not only did it give me my waves back, it also made my hair look and feel as healthy as ever. PLEASE don't hesitate to try this product, you won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff works magic I’ve been using this for years every time i do any bleaching of my hair and i have no damage no split ends etc. I should have very damaged hair due to the bleachings i have put my hair through but since i have been using this my hair is uneffected by the bleach. I used to use it once a week because it wouldn’t last longer in my hair now i’m only needing it once a month to 2 months. It has not ruined my hair from over use it even says on their website it will not damage your hair using it sooner than every 6 weeks but it might not benefit it either. But since using this every time i bleach now i have not had hair that breaks off of melts and it’s just like magic for my hair, i use the balancing moisturizer right after than i do a deep condition. It’s great just follow the directions on the bottle and you should have great results

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Results not Great to Use Pros: Results are fantastic! I don't know yet that my hair is having less breakage but it looks and feels so much healthier. I don't feel like my hair gets knotted and tangled nearly as much as it did prior. I used this after using a clarifying shampoo and my hair looks so shiny, healthy, and clean. Very happy with the results. Cons: This stuff is gross! The smell is awful and so is the texture. It's very watery and hard to use on yourself without making a mess. Then it gets super sticky after applying. When you dry it til it becomes hard it practically sticks like a rock to your scalp and isn't the most pleasant thing. Plus, if you get it on your skin like I did, you'll have some sticky and crusty mess on you. Wear a cape...I didn't but wish I had. Overall, this stuff if horrible to use but the results are well worth it. I will probably use this every other month and I think the bottle will last a while. It's expensive but you will get a lot of uses out of it (and I have bra strap length hair). Very pleased, just wish it smelled better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Gross consistency and smell. Truly the one of the greatest when it comes to protein treatments. Try your dupes and hacks and they just don’t hold up. I love this product. Hate the consistency though. Like a runny egg yolk. But the results are unmatched. I use this and the 2 minute keratin treatment interchangeably every time i wash!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aphogee saved my curl LIFE! It has literally SAVED my hair! A horrible, horrible EEEVIL "colorist" KILLED my hair and turned my formerly coarse, 3a curly hair into fine, brittle, broken, high porosity NO CURL hair. I even considered shaving my hair off. I was depressed. I couldn't stop crying. And then I found Aphogee and I use it religiously now, using this every 4-6 weeks and the 2 minute keratin treatment in between. My curls are kicking back in and I am at a 2c now as I work my way back to my 3a normal self. THANK YOU APHOGEE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic This stuff is weird but wow it works. It heals damaged hair (literally will make it feel like butter), and prevents future damage. The hair feels worse wet but once’s dried it’s so soft and feels stronger than ever. Highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aphogee won't disappoint If your hair is limp and mushy you may need a protein treatment and this is one of the best. IT REALLY WORKS. Give it a try, you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aphogee Treatment Works great for moisture overload. Gets very messy though. Instead of pouring it out in my hand I put it in a spray bottle and applied it to my hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second Time Around The first time I used the APHOGEE-Two Step Protein Treatment packets, I wish I had of purchased this size to cover my whole head of hair. The second time I used the APHOGEE-Two Step Protein Treatment, in the 4 oz, I can feel the difference in the strength of my hair with less breakage and no frizz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I had very curly hair but the last year of high school & first year of college I straightened my hair everyday. Then I got blonde put into my dark hair. Needless to say the ends of my hair did not curl anymore. This was frustrating because I couldn’t just leave my hair after a shower. I tried this two step system and it worked first try! There are still a couple strands not super curly but my hair looks like it did three years ago, it’s honestly amazing. I would highly recommend these products.
Date published: 2019-02-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! This two step protein treatment should be the go to for natural curly hair. Curly hair is fragile. When you experience breakage this treatment will put a stop to it. It’s good to get in the habit of treatments every six weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this brand! Have been transitioning from short/ chemically straightened, colored hair, back to naturally curly and long. These products have been a lifesaver after all the damage I've done in the past, to get my hair back! The value is phenomenal. I've spent a ton on professional products and these really stand out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FOR MILD HEAT DAMAGE Last year i straighten my hair 5 times in 6 months and got no heat damage at all. Now fast forward to now i decided to straighten my hair for the first time in 6 months and when i washed my hair 80% of my hair kinda reverted( it was looser than my normal curl pattern) and the rest was still straight and after deep conditioning my hair felt very wirey. I did this protein treatment the following week and my hair did a 180 and bounced back completely my hair looks the way it did before i straighten it so 10/10 recommend :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brought my curls back to life!!!! I’ve been so upset over my heat damage. I thought I was going to have to start all over and cut my hair! My hair wasn’t respinding well to my natural hair products anymore, my curls were dry and lifeless and just weren’t the same. I was so skeptical about this protein treasrment but I’m so glad I purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for processed or porous hair! Learned about this product in an expensive Hawaii hair salon. I asked for a conditioning treatment after coloring and this is the ONLY treatment the salon owners would allow their staff to use as a professional conditioning treatment. At first I wasn't sure about it but after continued use, I was impressed. And looking back at pictures, my hair was super SHINY with great color. Since I now color more often (hair grows fast) I am using this product more frequently. This restores the integrity, smoothness and shine of my hair. Have to have this product and thankful to find it at Sally's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I miss the old formula but it is still good I miss the old formula that contained placenta. This formula now uses wheat protein which makes my hair very stiff and dry. This product is still the best reconstuctor on the market I just felt the old forma was more balanced. I use this only twice a year now since it is so drying.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Protein treatment not conditioner Be careful with this product. Protein treatments are not for every type of hair. Follow directions and moisturize hair after. Too much protein in hair can cause more harm than good. Low porosity hair will not respond well to this. Some hair needs this but educate yourself before using it or risk going bald lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My staple for healthy hair I love this stuff. Use it on my damaged hair every weekend. Sleep with part one in my hair until it's dried rock hard. Get up, rinse and follow with balancing moisturizer and my double processed hair stays shiny and soft. I'll never be without this stuff. It smells bad but it's worth it.

This product is the worst. Not only did it not work. It shrunk my hair by 6 inches. It look as if I had cut my by 6 inches.

Can I dye my hair then use this? 

Asked by: Taran8tor
Yes, you can color your hair then use, however, Aphogee recommends use prior to coloring

So I forgot you needed to wash your hair before putting this on my hair was dry. My directions where ruined will it make a big difference? I am bummed and afraid its not gonna work . I made sure i used a lot

Asked by: Worried dry
The treatment should be applied to clean hair to ensure the product is able to penetrate all the strands. If you have a lot of product buildup the treatment may not be as effective because it can’t penetrate through the buildup on the hair strands. You should apply to clean hair and follow up with a good moisturizing conditioner.

My hair was soft and smooth but frizzy. So did permanent straightening. After that my hair has become very dry, frizzy and breaks a lot. Can I use this?

Asked by: Sandy262
Yes, but use with caution, better yet have a professional to apply it.  Certain medications can cause this to happen too, check with your doctor.

Is the step one safe to use with a blow dryer? On what setting..hi or low? Directions say it’s ok to use hand held blow dryer but hair should not be agitated...what does that mean? 

Asked by: Michelle R
It means: don't blow your hair all over your head, in all different directions. Try to keep your hair in a uniform manner as it dries.

Is this a wash in rinse like I received at salon?

Asked by: So damaged
Not quite. You apply the protein treatment to your hair, and dry it until hardened. Then you carefully rinse it out.

Can i use it with heat head cap

Asked by: Rahma1155
No the protein must dry hard with a blow dryer or hard hat dry to bond to the hair. It must be completely dry then rinsed You may use a heat cap with step 2.
