My 3a hair looks awful after I did the suave keratin treatment 3 weeks ago & my curls are ruined. The treatment is supposed to last for 30 days and I'm ready to help my hair get back to normal by doing the CG method. I'm looking for a good protein treatment & a good deep conditioner treatment that are CG friendly and that I can find at any drug store, or Sally's or ulta. Thanks

    Many curlies love Sally's Protein Filler and Aphogee 2-step for a PT. I personally adore Curl Junkie Repair Me because I don't have to follow it with a DT, but you have to buy it online.

    When I started CG the deep conditioner that actually made me over-condition was L'Oreal Eversleek 2-minute treatment. Super moisturizing and great slip for detangling, but my favorite thing about it was that it was cheap and I could find it anywhere. I also remember loving Aussie 3-Minute Miracle in my pre-CG days (but it's loaded with cones so stay away from this unless you're mod-CG or not CG - otherwise you will get buildup). HTH!
    Southern WI curly ~ mostly 2b/c with 2a/b underlayer and a few 3a curls on top
    Low porosity, fine hair but LOTS of it!
    Loves protein. Dislikes butters and heavy oils.

    From Sally's
    Aphogee 2 minute reconstructor
    Aphogee Step 2 (serious hardcore protein treatment)
    Colorful Neutral Protein Filler

    Ion Effective Care Treatment is moisture and protein. I use this several times a week and the Aphogee 2 minute once a week.
