Product Review: Aphogee Keratin & Green Tea Restructurizer

I feel a little apprehensive about doing this review because of my experience with this leave in treatment. I will not be rating this product but simply telling you my experience. I want all of you to keep in mind that I have sensitive hair and scalp and I have confirmed time and time again through my exploits with different products that the less products I use the healthier my hair is, I stick to what I know will work.

I used the Keratin & Green Tea Restructurizer for a week. I sprayed it throughout my hair liberally after I braided it up and than pinned the braids all around my hair like a wrap because I am rocking my wigs. At first I noticed how soft my hair was along with the moisturizer I used, this combo felt good. The next day I decided to undo some of the braids and see how my hair was reacting to the Keratin & Green Tea. I undid a few braids combed through it and than re-braided them and pinned them back up. My hair was shiny and I thought healthy. I noticed by the second or third day my scalp was itching so much and I had an urge to wash my hair, so I did a co-wash and rebraided my hair and sprayed the Keratin & Green Tea Restructurizer on my hair again. My scalp began to itch again by the second day. I let it itch for the week since I was like "I'm not going to do another co-wash." Fast forward to Friday, I undid all my braids to get ready for washing and deep conditioning my hair and to my surprise my hair was coming out my head! I would pull on sections of hair and a bunch of strands came out. Also, the front and back of my hairline was so 'picky' like hair had broken off.

This reconstructurizer is too strong for my hair and scalp, I'll stick with the Aphogee Keratin 2 Minute for my protein boost. I stopped using the product and I have no itches and my hairline is no longer 'picky'. I am so disappointed in this product. I had high hopes for it. Yes, it makes my hair soft. Yes, it makes my hair shiny and full of body. BUT it makes my hair fall out! Thanks but no thanks, I definitely don't have to think about this one.

Someone recommended this to me. (I'm not sure if I want to try it now.) I'm apprehensive about most of the Aphogee line. It all just seems to strong for me. Thanks for your review.

I used to use the Aphogee Pro-Vitamin Leave-In when I was relaxed, which isn't as strong as the Keratin & Green Tea. The Keratin & Green Tea is listed as a treatment while the Pro-Vitamin Leave-In is listed under maintain and protect. I think I'm going to go back to what works, since I really want a leave in with the length I'm gaining.

If your hair and scalp is sensitive like mine is you may want to try this leave in to start off with since its not as strong as the Keratin & Green Tea.

Hope this helps:)
