Ok, so a few weeks ago I was having an issue with my ends (as you can see). My ends were so dry and frizzy that I began to panic because I didn't know what to do. I decided to seek help and advice from the ladies over at BHM. I went ahead and did an Aphogee 2 Step Protein treatment and followed that up with a shot of moisture from Elasta QP DPR-11. Fast forward to the present, I've been shampooing with Queen Helene Mint Julep shampoo (as needed), deep conditioning with Elasta QP DPR-11, moisturizing with Care Free Curl Gold, sealing with African Best oil, and keeping my hair pulled up (trying to work on completely hiding my ends). Well.....I'm seeing improvement, however it's still not the way I would like, but I have HOPE once again!!! Hopefully with time, my ends will be fully recovered.
