  • Use for hair that is: Too weak or fine to take a perm or relaxer Is mushy when wet and brittle after drying Breaks when combed or brushed Will not hold color Is over bleached
    This unique treatment is formulated with magnesium and modified proteins which fuse into the hair with the application of heat. The result is that breakage is drastically reduced. During the process, ApHogee treatment hardens into the hair, dramatic evidence that something special is occurring. Restores lost moisture and hair becomes more manageable, flexible and strong. Breakage and split ends stop while hair looks and feels better.
  • For best results a hooded dryer is required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super soft hair I’m so glad I brought this. I was scared to buy the bottle because I didn’t know what the results would be so I brought 2 packs of the smaller packets and I’m so glad I did! This has my hair super soft and shiny! My hair wasn’t breaking off but I like to manage and prevent it from any breakage! Will definitely buy again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally fixed my hair! I wrecked my hair pretty bad trying to get out a direct dye that wouldn't budge (it still didn't budge after killing my hair). This made my hair better than it was to begin with. I'll be using this at least once a month now for my porous hair. ^_^

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It literally saved what hair I have left I got a little dye happy after bleaching and dying red, then wanting the red out to go brown again so I found myself with gummy feeling, no curl, couldn't even brush it unless it was literally drenched with a conditioner or leave in. It was bad. So I used this, followed the directions to the letter and now my hair is 75 to 80 percent better. I followed up with African Pride Olive Shampoo plus Conditioner and my brush was clean after brushing! 3 days later still the same. I highly recommend the shampoo as after care and a deep conditioner weekly. I use Carols Daughters Curl Milk after and now I am set to grow my hair out to start over. Once hair is damaged it will never be 100 percent again but this definitely brings life to breaking, snapping, over processed, over dyed, heat trauma, all of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My fried ends now look magical Two things with this product: 1) read the directions and follow them to avoid hair breakage 2) only use it if you know for sure you need it. If you don't need it you're adding protein to hair that already has protein in it, which will make your hair unmanageable. I only needed it on my ends due to repeated colorings. This is nothing like a protein conditioner as most people know them, this is the real deal and will take to your hair.I hope they never stop making this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't do anything My hair is still breaking just as much as it was prior to using this product. Good thing it's inexpensive because this would've been a huge waste of money if I spent more than what I paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the yes This product has absolutely saved my hair. My hair was over processed at the root (about an inch) the rest of my length was healthy but I was experiencing breakage due to the damage being at the root. Instead of pulling a brittney spears and shaving my head I decided to do this treatment once a month and it keeps my hair from breaking so I can eventually grow out the damage and soon chop it off. It will never reverse damage, nothing can. But it will bring so much strength and health back to your hair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice for the price I have 4b/c natural hair and decided to try this at home option based on other reviews. I followed the instructions to the letter and the results were about what I'd expected for a home treatment. I normally get professional protein treatments but due to a recent surgery, I'd been unable to get to the salon. The professional treatments last about 6-9 months in my hair and this treatment lasted about 2 weeks, but for the price and if I'm in a pinch and can't get to the salon, I would definitely use this product again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My hair Is DAMAGED I have recently been going from black hair to platinum blonde. Yep that’s gonna really kill my hair. Currently I’m at a blondish orange color and my hair is pretty dry so I turned to hair masks and treatments. Everyone’s been hyping this stuff up so I decided to try it. It definitely did help for sure. My hair is softer but it’s not like it entirely repaired it. It’s still a bit dry but nonetheless I’m vpretty happy with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my hair!!!! I’ve long colored my hair. I’ve bleached it, dyed it, stained it every color under the sun. I have NEVER found a repair product like ApHogee’s Two-Step Protein Treatment. Earlier today, my hair felt like mush when wet—I know some of you know that feeling. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO. I used ApHogee, and once I got used to the egg-like texture and the super delicate, super hard helmet it creates while the protein bonds to your hair, I was blown away. My hair is soft and supple and strong again. If you’re a frequent dyer, USE THIS. I mean, follow the directions to a T because you could really screw up your hair if you don’t really need the protein dose (aka only use if your hair is very damaged) and if you aren’t careful while it’s in helmet hair form (yes, it could break off), but if you need it and feel brave, I couldn’t recommend it more. YAY MY HAIR IS HAIR AGAIN!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hair is much softer I used this to help with my gummy hair while it’s wet and extremely dry hair when it’s dry. While is was wet I still felt some gumminess but after drying it on cool my hair feels so much softer than it did pretreatment!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Messy/results ok I got this because I saw it was recommended to use after a color remover. When I went to separate the packets, I ended up tearing open the 1st packet by accident. With it on me & the floor I realized how sticky it is, like egg yolks. I didn't read any reviews about the awful consistency. It's a little too messy for me. Not sure if I will use again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing for bleach damaged hair I had my hair highlighted and it was way over processed. To the point pieces were missing and it was mushy. I had never seen hair in that kind of condition and never knew that was possible. When it was wet it was weak and could hardly brush it scared more would come out. I waited a week after buying this product reading reviews and trying to decide if this was for my hair. So I sectioned off my hair and went for it. That portion of hair was so strong a little dry but nothing like what it was. So I did the other sections one at a time. When I got done it was still a little dry I added some leave in conditioner and it’s like my hair was good as new. It has shine back to it and strength I never thought it could have. When the ends get dry they still will split. I counter reacted that with adding leave in conditioner again whenever they are dry and it stops. If you think your hair is beyond repair this is something you want to try. When your hair is in this state you are nervous to do anything to it. If this is the state your hair is in this is for you. Part your hair into small parts and work those one at a time. Add moisture when your done and the results will be amazing. I can actually pull on my hair and it does not come out. Never thought this would be possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reviving my fried bleached hair! I’ve been getting my hair highlighted for 10+ years. Sadly, I went in to get a balayage highlight and the guy that did my hair totally fried it. I literally cried for two days straight because I had never had my hair get so damaged like it did before. My hair was fairly healthy prior to getting fried from the bleach too. Anyway, I did a lot of Googling and stumbled upon this. I should mention that for about a week leading up to using this product I was using Caviar products by Alterna. I was getting some results but not as much as I got with this two step system. Prior to using this product when I would get out of the shower the parts of my hair that were fried would air dry extremely fast and feel dry and crispy. Now, my hair dries all at about the same speed and doesn’t feel nearly as crispy. The attached picture shows my results using this product and the Caviar products mentioned. If you are in a similar situation, try this first. This product is affordable and made my hair look less frizzy and gave back some shine to my sad fried hair. This is literally bringing my bleached hair back to life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it One of the ladies at Sally's advised me to try this product on my over bleached hair. It is a miracle in two packets. I can pull my fingers through my hair without it tearing or pulling hair out. Absolutely amazing product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer for fine hair. Well I have fine 4c hair that is also porous. Since a natural I have found few things that will allow me to grow out my hair. I could use Wen to soften it but at some point it would still just snap. My hair is 11 inches now. When this product is not in my hair I lose it by heavy shedding. So I have gone back to it time and time again. Yes it's different so its weird for some, letting your hair dry till you feel like you have a glue shell, and a funny smell. But, worth every penny! My hair looks so healthy and strong and it even helps with curl definition. Oh wait, it is healthy and strong thanks to this product! I don't think you will be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bleached 5 times in a month So uh, let me explain the texture of my hair BEFORE I bleached it. Virgin Brown hair that was wavy in some area's, kinky in others, classic curls in a few places, frizzy everywhere, straight in random places. Did I use heat? NO Did I use coloring? NO Did I use leave in conditioner? YES My hair after I bleached it a total of 5 times within a month with 40 vol and 30 vol along with spot bleaching. Wavy in some area's, kinky in others, classic curls in a few places, frizzy everywhere, straight in random places. . . -_- My hair looked like garbage in either state and one was extremely damaged and the other rarely ever had split ends. Well anyways I am growing out my hair as I shaved my head a year and a half ago because I had my hair bleached by a professional for the very first time (I mean first time , I had complete Virgin hair. ) Anywho I went home after she bleached it and I paid way to much money for it and found that my hair was falling out and was frizzy to the point of no return so I shaved my head and waited for my hair to grow out. Since it has grown I have taken bleaching into my own hands and it works out pretty well. I had no breakage with bleach (used coconut oil with all bleachings and protein deep conditioners after) It was about after the 5th bleaching that I noticed very few hairs breaking off so I invested in a protein treatment rather than just a deep conditioner and I enjoyed it. I had to use my hair dryer but it worked well. Can I tell a difference in my hair? I can say that the ends are much softer and the frizziness went down a little which was nice, but in general I mean my hair looks before it did before I bleached it (a mess of hair) The small breaking disappeared. Definitely worth the time and effort. Note: If you have longer than shoulder length hair please buy two or the big bottles as this will not be enough for your hair. I would recommend the product though to people with any hair type. Follow the directions too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I was SO happy to color my hair a vibrant color, but had to have it bleached to reach the shade I wanted. I have healthy hair and never have bleached ever so I figured I'd be ok with a little damage to get my desired color. Well... I Lost all my CURLS. I was styling my hair, freaking out, it felt dry, my curls were not frizzy waves at best, with like 3 curls total. I spent days researching bleach and what it does to curls and came by this on Youtube with many great stories. I was hesitant but so upset, I figured, and hoped, it couldn't get worse. Im SO glad I gave this a shot. I attached a pic of before the treatment and after. It's like night and day! My curls are Back! and practically as tight as they were before bleaching. This stuff is magic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I was about ready to cry yesterday because my hair was so dry and frizzy after bleaching and coloring it this week. I used the 2 step protein treatment this morning and my hair feels soft, and looks shiny and healthy! It is a bit time consuming but so worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved My Hair I was desperate for something that would help my hair. I've tried everything. I've tried cholesterol cream, I've tried argan oil, deep conditioners, everything by Pureology, keratin treatments.. you get it. I went into Sally's and the woman recommended this product once every few weeks along with the Ion repair conditioner. I haven't tried the hair conditioner but this SAVED MY HAIR. I have been bleaching my long hair platinum blonde for years (naturally dark brown hair), but want long healthy hair now and have been trying to grow out the brown and ditch the platinum by doing the balayage hair coloring. I really damaged my hair with hot tools last year, and it was breaking and falling out like crazy. I have been borderline embarrassed of the state of my hair up until last night. I can now comb and brush my hair without it falling out, it doesn't feel dry and it looks HEALTHY. I'm amazed. I needed to give this a review right away. I highly recommend this product. Thank you so much Sally Beauty! I can't believe this was only $4!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really repairs! This stuff smells to high heaven but does the trick- kind of 'glues' the shaft of the damaged hair back together and will help with split ends- I use this about every other month with a normal hair dryer at home. Don't use it too frequently as I hear it is not good for your hair

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my hair too! I had been dying my hair in my late 30s and stopped because my hair became brittle with the L'Oreal products I had been using. I have since started using Wella and 20 volume developer, and my hair isn't as brittle. When I used the ApHogee, my hair was just like it was before I ever colored! It was as fine and silky as it was when I was a child! It's WELL worth the price. I had once paid for deep conditioning at the salon... nothing like this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bleached twice in a fell out in CHUNKS I'm so relieved I bought this product. I desperately wanted blonde hair again(from brown) so I decided why not get it to a perfect blonde in less than five hours. Horrible decition! I ended up using 30 developer with bleach two times in a row. Thinkiing it wouldn't do any damage..I was very wrong. My hair fell out so much in the shower that it clogged the drain. I franticly went to sallys hoping I wouldn't have to chop all my hair off. And thank goodness for this product because immediately after I got out of the more hair falling out! I also used the ion repair mask after the second step of the treatment and my hair is looking healthier by the minute! Hoping to be able to tone it tomorrow and have that perfect blonde hair I want. However, I will never EVER bleach my hair back to back again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product saved my hair and is a miracle. My hair was close to getting to the spaghetti stage where your hair falls out in clumps from so much chemical damage from so many bleachings. I thought I had to shave it off and was so distraught I was sobbing not knowing what to do. I used this product and my hair is night and day different. It's not stretchy anymore to the point of almost breaking off if I tugged onto it too much, and has strength and elasticity again. I also use the ion recondstructor atop of it which is just as amazing, and coconut oil too. I'm so glad I don't have to go bald Thank you aphogee! I'll be doing this every 6 weeks as the Sallys clerk said.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Impressed!! I picked up this 2 step sample pack about a week ago. I only wash my hair once a week so i had to wait until today to use it because the instructions say to use it on freshly washed hair. I was going back and forth on if i should use it or not beings that I have been going the more natural route with my haircare for my curls. It does contain sulfates as well as silicones but I figured I could atleast give it a go this one time and if i didnt like it then no big deal. I am sooooo happy that i did. I didnt think my hair needed protein but seeing how bouncy, springy, and full my curls are, apparently I did! It was a simple process and despite what ive read about the product, i didnt find the smell very strong or bad for that matter. It does have a slight odor but nothing that I'd say would knock you back when you open it. I guess some people are just more se sensative to smells. It was a little messy but not bad. I put the product in my hair as instructed and used a fine toothed comb to ensure even distribution, dried it then rinsed it out. I noticed in the shower that my hair felt very soft. I didnt use the moisturizing packet, i decided to just use my own silicone free deep conditioning mask. I styled as usual with my Cantu curl activator cream and plopped for 10 min then let air dry.Even when it was still wet i could see my hair was definitely curlier and as it dryed more it only got better! I will for sure be using this again and I highly recommend it!!! At worst you'd be out just under 5 bucks so barely anything at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY hair has been Blessed! After bleaching my hair many times, it was weak..nasty looking and went it was wet it felt like stretchy rubber bands , i could not comb nor brush my hair , even though i was happy with the color of my hair i was not happy with the texture and damage.. I first wet my hair then applied the step 1 i got a little intimidated because as the product was drying it got all stiff like harder than extra hold hair spray! lol then u wash it off after some time , i felt my hair heavier!!! and clean then i used step 2 left in it then rinsed it out and it felt soft , strong , health, and i noticed my hair would hold curls longer :) i was truly happy and it helped so much !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would definitely recommend this!! I have been going to Sally’s for years and never felt the need to write a review until now. This product is AMAZING!! My hair wasn’t insanely damaged but it has been bleached a lot and gone through many things over the years. After I used this, even right out of the shower I noticed a difference. My hair felt thicker. After it dried, it feels in prestine condition. My bleached ends feel the same as my virgin grown out hair. It’s absolutely amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hair Life Saver! I'm just getting around to writing a review for this product but I wanted to wait a couple weeks to determine whether or not its worth it and it so is! I used it on 12/02/17 and since then, I've seen less breakage, less hair loss and more curl definition. Prior to using it, I was used quite a bit of heat and as a result, I lost some of my curls. Being a natural, I was concerned because I didn't want to start the transition process all over again. I have used this treatment in the past but since its been so long ago, I couldn't remember how well the results were. I must say that this product is HIGHLY RECOMMENED for anyone that has lost their curl pattern due to excessive heat. It truly did what it promised and that is restore the strength of my hair as well as revitalize its porosity. It says to do it every four weeks or less depending on your hair's condition. So I suggest if you're natural and also if you use heat from time to time, use this product. I've heard some horror stories when using it but just like any product, YOU MUST FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. Great product especially for its price. I will suggest that if you have thick hair you may want to purchase two packets instead of one.

I'm letting my gray hair grow in and really want to embrace it. Is this product good for gray hair? I have course hair.

Asked by: Roz00001
It works for all types of hair. It basically reconstructs your hair after its been damaged. I am African American and I also have coarse hair and it does wonders. You can use this before coloring your hair it stops it from any breakage. However, if you have any relaxer or any chemicals in your hair before using this product it will strip away all chemicals and take your hair back to its natural state.

Should you use this before or after you color your hair ?

Asked by: Anastasia B
I would recommend after bleaching but before the coloring. It has sulfates and will wash out your color. However if your goal is for a pastel look then go ahead and do it after the coloring. (I am not a professional. I have bleached and colored my hair that is all I can say on my knowledge of coloring and bleaching)

Does this fade color treated hair? I just recently touched up my roots, and I really don't want it to fade. I just have a lot of breakage (from a bad bleach job months ago), that I'm still trying to recover from. I was recommended this product.

Asked by: TiffanyDawnnnn
It shouldnt. I just went a lavender purple after bleaching and I also flat iron a few times a month. I used this stuff because I lost all my curls from bleaching and my hair felt stringy. I was nervous about loosing color but my hair was so bad I had to try it. Luckily it did NOT fade my color and it brought back my curls! I'm amazed! This stuff is amazing for damaged hair, especially if you are naturally curly and your pattern has changed or been totally lost. Follow directions to a tee.
