Aphogee Keratin 2 Minute Reconstructor

CammybCammyb Posts: 576Registered Users Curl Neophyte
I'm new on Naturally Curly (3 months since my bigchop ) and I never did a post. This is my first thread and I just wanted to give my review of the Aphogee Reconstructor I tried. I bought the little pack because I wanted to sample it first before I purchased a big bottle at Sallys. We'll it smells like pina colada or some fruity coconut concoction. I like that alot. It was thick like a conditioner but not heavy like a paste. So it was easy to distribute over my head evenly. Better yet, let me give you the order of what I did today :happy1:
1. Washed Hair with Eta'e Ginger Shampoo Bar
2. Applied Aphogee
3. Did a Moisturizing Co w/ AO Honey Suckle Rose
4. Sprayed [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Oyin-Handmade-Greg-Juice-p-190.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=oyin-greg-juice-nourishing-herbal-leavein]Greg Juice[/buylink] in Hair
5. Long Aid Gel for styling
6. Added some cute clips (Lol)

My hair is shiny, moist, and looks healthy. I'm more then satisfied. Go me!

    Congratulations!!!!
    I love the new Aphogee. It smells SOOO much better. I put it in my daughter's hair because it was shedding badly. It worked instantly. I use it on my hair every few months whenever I feel like my hair needs it.

    Thanks for the review. I love this conditioner. I use it as my protein treatment. I started using it last year when I decided to get Aveda color. However, they recently reformulated this product. I am not happy about the addition of cones and mineral oil.:-( So I have been on the hunt for any left over bottles or packets of the original. I currently have 4 double packets. I know I will eventually at least try out the new one. It's a shame when they mess up a good thing!

    Your welcome and your right its sucky when alot of companies reformulate their products. During my first big chop, I was a Miss Jessies Fanatic back in 05 now I would never even look twice at their line.

    Girl, I was right there with you. I was just over a year into my transition @ that time. I remember "treating" myself to the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Miss-Jessies-Curly-Pudding-p-578.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=miss-jessies-curly-pudding]curly pudding[/buylink] and baby butter cream that November for my b'day. It's amazing looking back on this natural hair journey. I do still have a few MJ products in my rotation. But I have still have the old formulas. I stocked up during the Holiday 2006 BOGO. I down to my last jars of [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Miss-Jessies-Curly-Meringue-p-576.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=miss-jessies-curly-meringue]Curly Meringue[/buylink] and Baby Butter cream. I have been rationing them. LOL I played briefly w/samples of the newer ones while @ Ricky's in NYC. I need to find replacements. LOL :(

    I stopped using it (though I really love it) because of all the damn cones. I believe it has one non-water soluble cone in it (Someone correct me if I'm mistaken). And since I don't use Sulfate Shampoo's thats a no no.

    I got my aphogee from ebay a couple of weeks ago and was very disappointed to see the formula changes, but decided to use it anyway. I'm please with how it left my hair soft and yet very strong. My strands were too elastic and breaking on account of that. I'm just going to ignore the instruction on the bottle and not use it on my scalp to avoid the build up.
