Section One – Taking Care of Your Hair
Using pre shampoo treatments can help to infuse your hair with the moisture it needs to grow its longest. This is the best time to apply hot oil treatments so that the excess oils can be washed away during shampooing. The best pre shampoo treatment to use is Organic Virgin Coconut oil because it actually penetrates the hair unlinke most oils which only coat the hair. It should be applied like a hot oil treatment before washing. After applying, the hair should be covered with a plastic cap. Leave on hair for 30 minutes without heat or 15 minutes with heat. Then you may proceed to washing.
Your choice of shampoo is very important. Shampoos containing harsh sulfates strip the hair and should be avoided. The best type of shampoo to use is one gentle, moisturizing, and sulfate free like Essentious Exonerate Shampoo. But at a minimum, your shampoo should not contain harsh sulfates. Check the ingredients list on your shampoo to find out if they are damaging.
Do not use shampoos that contain the following sulfates:
Ammonium Laureth Sulfate
Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate
TEA Laureth Sulfate TEA Lauryl Sulfate
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
The following sulfates are gentle and will not damage your hair:
Polyoxethylene Fatty Alcohols
Sodium Myreth Sulfate
A clarifying shampoo can be used once a month, or to remove heavy buildup. A clarifying shampoo should be different from your regular shampoo. It will contain harsher sulfates than those in your regular shampoo.
Protein should be replaced in regular intervals and after any chemical service even if your hair is not noticeably damaged. Hair can be severely damaged from chemical processing (perms, relaxers, color, bleaching, highlights, etc.) This is because these processes remove protein from the hair. If this part of your hair care regimen is overlooked, the results can be devastating.
How often should you use protein treatments?
Determining the appropriate intervals for applying protein treatments will heavily depend on the condition of your hair as well as your regular hair care practices. For damaged hair, protein treatments should be used 2-3 times a month. To keep your hair soft, moisturizing treatments should be used on alternating weeks or immediately following the protein treatment. For example, in the course of 6 weeks you could use a protein treatment on weeks 1,3, and 5. Then you would a moisturizing treatment alone on weeks 2, 4, and 6. For healthy hair, a protein treatment is probably only needed once monthly.
How should the treatment be applied?
There are two types of protein treatments that can be used. The first is the kind that will be washed out, and the second is a leave-in treatment. For wash-out protein treatments, they should be applied to towel dried hair and covered with a shower cap. Most of these treatments require 30 to 60 minutes to elapse before rinsing. You should refer to the directions of your specific treatment. Another way to do a protein treatment is to apply it to dry, unwashed hair. Leave the treatment in all day, then rinse out. Examples of protein treatments are Essentious Rejuvenate Strenthening Protein Treatment, Aphogee Protein Treatment, and Mizani Kerafuse. Follow your protein treatment with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. For leave-in treatments, you would follow your normal shampoo and conditioner with a leave-in protein treatment. This is not rinsed.
Using heat appliances and chemical processes remove moisture from your hair that needs to be replaced. If your hair feels dry, you need to replace lost moisture. Deep conditioning should always be done to the ends of the hair. If a deep conditioner is applied all over, it should be followed with a shampoo (not clarifying)
A regular light moisturizing treatment should be used following every shampoo (unless a pre-shampoo treatment is done). For very dry and damaged hair, a deep conditioner should be used once weekly. Also, if you use protein treatments often, you may need to deep condition (those that require a shower cap under a heated dryer) also.
How should the treatment be applied?
Shampoo, then apply the treatment (conditioner) all over and cover with a shower cap. The treatment should be left in 20-60 minutes. For fine hair, the treatment should be rinsed, followed by a shampoo. For thicker hair, it is not necessary to use shampoo following the treatment.

Severely damaged hair will need special attention to drastically improve its condition. Use the following regimen for four weeks before continuing with the methods for washing and conditioning described in this report.
1. Do a pre-shampoo treatment, Organic Virgin Coconut oil is
best. You would apply it like a hot oil treatment, cover with
a plastic cap, leave on hair for 30 minutes without heat (or
15 minutes with heat.)
2. Wash hair with a gentle shampoo. A moisturizing, gentle shampoo like Essentious Exonerate is best.
Apply your protein treatment. If you are using an egg in your conditioner as your protein treatment, you should not use heat. You should cover with a plastic cap and leave on hair for 60 minutes. For other protein treatments (that do not contain egg), cover hair with shower cap and leave in for 30 minutes with heat. Heat should be applied with either a hooded dryer (best) or by wrapping with hot towels while the treatment is in the hair.
3. Apply your moisture treatment. Cover with a plastic cap and apply heat for 15 to 20 minutes.
