With all the twist outs, braids, blow outs, high­lights and out-styles you sport­ed over the sum­mer, it’s pos­si­ble that your hair is not at its best health and is expe­ri­enc­ing some break­age. Here are some prod­ucts for every bud­get that you can use to com­bat and reverse the effects of break­age caused by sum­mer styling.

Tresemme Anti Breakage

The Tre­semme Anti-break­age sham­poo and con­di­tion­er duo is infused with Vit­a­min B12, which nour­ish­es hair fol­li­cles and pro­motes the for­ma­tion of red blood cells and gelatin, which improves hair qual­i­ty, growth, and tex­ture.

Carol’s Daugh­ter Monoi Repair­ing Col­lec­tion

Carol's Daughter Monoi

The prici­est option on this list is the Carol’s Daugh­ter Monoi Repair­ing Col­lec­tion. It’s made with Tahit­ian-inspired deriv­a­tives of flow­ers, coconut oil, and coconut water. The Monoi Repair­ing Sham­poo, Con­di­tion­er, Anti-Break­age Spray, Sacred Strength­en­ing Serum, Split End Seal­er and Repair­ing Hair Mask all promise 96% less break­age and 13x longer hair life.

Aphogee Two – Step Pro­tein Treat­ment

Aphogee Two Step Protein Treatment

Per­haps you’ve been deep con­di­tion­ing reg­u­lar­ly through­out the sum­mer to reduce the dam­age of your pro­tec­tive or out-styles yet you still are expe­ri­enc­ing break­age. It’s pos­si­ble that your break­age is a result of an imbal­ance in pro­tein lev­els. The Aphogee Two-Step Pro­tein treat­ment is a super intense pro­tein treat­ment that will help com­bat break­age by restor­ing your hair’s amino acids and over­all strength. If you don’t want to buy a pro­tein treat­ment, cre­ate your own with a mix­ture of egg, hon­ey, oil, and full fat yogurt.



DIY Deep Con­di­tion­er & End Seal­er

DIY Conditioner

If you don’t want to spend any mon­ey on prod­ucts to tack­le your break­age, head to your fridge and make a pro­tein rich deep con­di­tion­er with egg, hon­ey, oil, and full fat yogurt. For your ends, mix coconut oil with pep­per­mint oil and apply to your ends every oth­er night.

African Pride Olive Mir­a­cle anti break­age for­mu­la Leave-in Con­di­tion­er works great on my hair and is very afford­able. I love it and would def­i­nite­ly add it to this list.



when I was relaxed, loved Aphogee…tried it as a nat­ur­al, sor­ry FAIL. Awful for my nat­ur­al hair


I heard thay Aphoogee prod­ucts were meant for chem­i­cal­ly treat­ed hair…and that it’s not nec­es­sary for nat­u­rals to use it…heard this from a licenced cos­me­tol­o­gist.


read my mind w that exact diy recipe…never fails


I’ve been research­ing and learned that pro­tein must be hydrolyzed in order to be effec­tive in adding strength and actu­al pro­tein deposits. So my under­stand­ing is the DYI is pro­l­ly soft­en­ing the hair but not putting pro­tein onto/into the strand.


Aphogee is heav­en sent. I use it every 6 to 8 weeks. It stops break­age sig­nif­i­cant­ly.

Carol’s Daugh­ter Monoi sys­tem is the truth & so is Aphogee!
I love the 2 Step Re-con­struc­tor and the Ker­atin one. Come in handy when I do not feel in the mood to hen­na!


I think Carol’s Daugh­ter Monoi Col­lec­tion is the TRUTH, espe­cial­ly the Split End Seal­er. But those prod­ucts are EXPENSIVE!!!

If I don’t feel like going through the motions for the Aphogee 2 step treat­ment, I just mix it into my reg­u­lar con­di­tion­er and deep con­di­tion.

What about the Aphogee 2 minute Recon­struc­tor????

Miss Elisa K.

I think Aphogee will always be the rem­e­dy for dam­aged hair of any kind, relaxed or nat­ur­al. great post!


I agree *thumbs up’.
