Remedying Porosity - Protein time!

My wash and deep condition supplies

It's been a while since I did a protein treatment (other than my coconut prepoo). My hair seems to be extremely porous these days (or maybe it's the weather change, I dunno) so I think I need to up the ante a bit on my protein. I decided to revisit an old (but expensive!) favorite, the NEXXUS Emergencee. Love is not the word to describe how I feel about this product. It's a product that does what it says it will do and u can count on it to react the same way with your hair everytime.

It must be noted that using the Kinky Curl Knot Today instead of the Giovanni Direct Leave in, I get a mixture that is less thick in consistency and my hair dries out/ feels less moisturized faster. I guess I'll stick to the Giovanni in the future. Once my hair was moisturized, I two strand twisted each section and then made a bantu knot, securing the ends with clips.

  1. I have 4 a/b/c hair...Can you recommend a good protein treatment that I can find in Trinidad please..Thank you

    1. Your best bet is ORS hair mayonnaise sold at pennywise, it has egg protein in it. You can also add an egg to whatever deep conditioner you currently use or you can do my coconut prepoo If you don't want to do all the ingredients just the yogurt alone can give you a good protein boost. hth!

  2. Thank you very much!
