lingering Aphogee stench

2AonaGoodDay2AonaGoodDay Posts: 20Registered Users
Based on the many, many glowing reviews in the 2 forums, I got some Aphogee 2 step protein treatment today. I did the PT for around an hour, rinsed, did a DT for 20 minutes or so and showered. I still stink like Aphogee. Please tell me how to make the bad smell go far far away! Please!

p.s. Thank you for the new forum!

    You should check out this thread: http://www.naturallycurly.com/curltalk/2/116257-pt-recipe-promised.html
    It is a recipe invented to work like Aphogee (with whatever variations and technique you like) without the lingering stench.
    Lots of us have tested it!

    Just an update- the next morning, with completely dry hair the smell is gone. I was worried I would smell like the back end of cat all weekend.

    And yes, I will be trying some of IA's recipes. I don't know if I can deal with a whole lot of that Aphogee stuff again. Too bad I bought the $22 bottle.

    Eek, gads, a whole bottle! When I used to use that stuff, I washed my hair afterwards and it reduced the scent somewhat. Not enough for my tastes!
