Nexxus Emergencée Strengthening Polymeric Reconstructor
I started using this for my protein treatments after I became EXTREMELY frustrated with Mendex Hair Repair Treatment not being available on the ground (larger sizes). After reading tons of reviews I decided to just try the Emergencee. The reviews I read got the best results by not following the instructions to the T and I followed suite. I clarified my hair (I love to do this when I really need a clean slate), so the treatment could fully work. Applied the treatment in sections and sat under a dryer to allow the treatment to get hard. I used to use Aphogee 2 Step so I knew this hardening process very well, and I was comfortable with it. After it dried I deep conditioned with Redken Real Control Intense Renewal Mask for about 30 minutes. The directions also don’t mention anything about a DC but I suggest there not even being a question about it…. YOUHAVE TO USE A MOISTURIZING DC AFTER A PROTEIN TREATMENT! If not your hair will break off something serious. After rinsing the treatment your hair will be crisp. I don’t even bother with real parting to apply the DC because I don’t want to risk any breakage. After this treatment my hair is ready to face the most beastly of heat tools, so I usually do them every 4-6 weeks in the winter when I flatiron a lot, and a lot less in the summer when I rock more texture styles.
