What type of treatment is the Aphogee 2-step treatment?
A high quality hair treatment, that temporarily adheres small particles of animal proteins to each of your hair strands. This instantly gives your hair extra strength against manipulation and fills in the broken spaces on your hair strands. While the protein is on the hair, it is least likely to break from manipulation. This enables you to retain more length. Thus reaching your length goals faster.

- Those with moderate to severe breakage.
- Those with damaged hair strands.
- Thin hair strands and fine hair strands.
- Use before applying hair extensions. This helps to protect the hair while under the fake hair.
- Those who heat straighten, color or relax their hair.
