Aphogee 2 Step Treatment

Yesterday was my first time using the Aphogee 2 Step Protein Treatment, and so far I'm happily pleased.

Here is a picture of both the 2 Step treatment and the Balancing Cream. Both are needed

If you use the 2 Step (while bottle) without using the Balancing Moisturizer  (pink bottle),  your hair will FALL OUT more then it is right now. 

Hair Washing Regimen 

  1. First thing I used was the Aphogee Damage  Shampoo which is needed to clean your hair.
  2. After washing my hair a few times I used the 2 Step Protein Treatment. Making sure the treatment was in my hair, I slowly comb the treatment through my hair. Once done with that I used my blow dryer and dried the hair maybe around 30 to 40 min. (I have a relaxer so my hair isn't that thick). Women with ticker hair may need to blow dry their hair a bit longer. 
  3. Once hair is dry ... The protein in your hair will become very hard. Once its hard go back in the shower under warm water and after a few min you will feel your hair become more loose and natural. 
  4. Once protein is fully rinsed out of hair then you use your balancing moisturizer. Make sure you work the moisturizer through your head at least twice. 
  5. The next thing I did was the 2 Min Re constructor. This is something like a deep conditioner.

That's it ... your done ! Yeah I know it seem like a lot, but my hair feels great because of it. After I washed out everything I let my hair air dry then I sprayed some Keratin & Green Tea Restructurizer on it, then styled it the next day. And the result ... My hair is very soft, easy to manage and I see less breakage. I will let u know how my hair is between now and 6 weeks (the next time I have to do the 2 step treatment again.

Trouble Losing Weight While at Work

As some of your might already know from the Facebook Fan page I mentioned that I started a new job working as a customer service representative at a large cable company. Even though I just started about 3 weeks ago, and I'm still in the learning period of the job... I noticed I'm having a much harder time just trying to maintain my weight, let alone lose weight.

Five days a week for around 8hrs a day, I do nothing but sit at a computer desk. I'm sure majority of you reading this post do the same thing. Personally I'm having a tough time keeping my weight down. I think its a combination of not being as physically active as I was when I was not working. When I wasn't working I would Clean the house, Cook dinner and go shopping. Doing those few things a couple of days a week along with eating healthy, really helped me lose weight. But now my schedule and lifestyle changed so much is really difficult.

For some reason my job just loves to give us free Donuts and Dinners to show their appreciation to us. However this sucks for me because every time I eat Donuts I can actually Hear My Fat Cells Grow Larger with Each Swallow of the sweet treat. As a result I try to avoid these such foods as much as I can. Another thing I hate is trying to buy food to eat for Lunch. For the simple fact that everything my job sells to eat was created in a cave with processed materials then slapped in a container with a price tag on it.

I'm probably going shopping this weekend to pick up better options for lunch, snacks and dinner at home.So far these are a few things I have in mind that I would normally eat to help me lose weight.

Shopping List :
  1. Fruit
  2. Tuna Fish
  3. Yoguart
  4. Chicken Breast
  5. Crackers - Low or No Sodium
  6. Lean Ground Beef
  7. Chicken Pieces
  8. Multi Grain Muffin - Thanks Courtney
  9. Peanut Butter - Low Sodium
  10. Raisins

This is all I can think of for the moment, but as I think of more items I'll add them on the list. Better yet if you can think of something else that is quick and healthy to have during lunch at work, don't be afraid to post a Comment and share your ideas. While I was looking around online I came across this website called 50 Ways to Lose Weight While Your at Work. Its an interesting read so maybe you all can check that out after you read this post. I will make sure to post when ever I can about what ever is on my mind, as long as you keep on reading. - Smile
