Stacey Swears AphOGEE Solves Splits…Dear Beauty Brains, Your site has now become my favorite out of the dozens of beauty sites I visit. My question concerns AphOGEE hair treatment. I use this every couple of months when my hair starts to get fried and split from straightening and it returns my hair to the most normal healthy state and the dead ends disappear. What is in this stuff that it repairs hair? I`m assuming it’s protein but I use protein conditioners that don’t have the same affect. Please help unravel the mystery for me?
The Right Brain Is Simply Skeptical:
Hmmm. This is a mystery to us too, Stacy. We took a look at the ingredients in AphOGEE’s Treatment and didn’t see much that would cause split ends to disappear. Our guess is the same as yours – the protein. If they used the right kind of protein (with a molecular weight of 2000 or so) then it’s theoretically possible that the product forms a film on the ends of your hair that holds the splits together.
Of course, this is only possible if you’re using the product as a leave in treatment. Rinse out products can’t deposit enough protein to have the same effect. That’s why your regular protein conditioners don’t work.
Still, The Beauty Brains are surprised AphOGEE would have that much of an impact. And we’d only expect it to last until your next shampoo, which would wash it out. Maybe you could write back with additional information (how often you use it, how long it lasts, is it better tha Ojon, etc.)
