CNPF protein spray - ratios?

wavydazewavydaze Registered Users Posts: 2,065 Curl Novice
I'm wondering if anyone has made a simple protein-spray with Colorful Neutral Protein Filler... what was your ratio of water to CNPF?

Some of my stylers don't have protein (like UFD CM) and I'd like a protein spray to spray on underneath the styler.

    I've never made a protein spray per say, but I do use and make a flax seed spray with CNPF that I use underneath a hard hold gel. I soak the flax seeds in very hot water (almost boiling) and let it sit overnight - I also stir it up a few times. I then strain it, which results in about a cup of FS "juice." To that I add approximately 2 tsp. of CNPF, as well as a couple drops of lavender essential oil and vitamin E oil. This works very well on my protein starved hair (I'm naturally porous). Using this was a rather "duh-hey" moment for me. As my hair is so highly porous, gelling the flax seeds isn't necessary as my hair just sucks up whatever you put on it anyway.

    I use it full-strength, but on soaking wet hair. I think you could use it in a pretty high ratio if your hair likes a lot of protein.

    Not to interrupt, but I just tried it full strength on damp hair yesterday and liked it.

    my favourite way to use CNPF is to add about 1 ounce to my Curl Keeper. so its about a 7:1 ratio of 7 ounces CK and 1 ounce of CNPF.


    I use this mix overtop of a bit of AG Re:Coil and this is my favourite styler product line up. I kept coming back to Re:coil and CK and then had the brilliant idea of adding CNPF to my CK and perfect curls were born for me! I can get 4 and sometimes 5 days of really good curls and by then its time to wash again anyway. I pineapple at night with a satin scrunchie and that's it. I've really simplified my routine and products and have never really had better hair than in the last 6-8 months.


    I will also refresh with my Q redew a few times a month if needed.
