I've been getting some e-mails about what products to use when the hair has become too moisturized. How does one know when the hair is overmoisturized? It's all in the strands. Feel your hair and if it feels extremely soft and has so much elasticity that it breaks, that is the major sign. So now that you do know, how do you fix it? I would suggest using a heavy protein like ApHogee Treatment for Damaged Hair. This product contains animal protein which will help your hair get some much needed protein. Just make sure you use this product once every 6-12 weeks if you have a moisture problem and that you DON'T air dry after using it; air drying after using it will lead to breakage for some. Also, add a moisturizing leave-in after using it. I hope this helps!

I never knew your hair could be over moisturized, thanks for sharing. what do you mean by "so much elasticity that it breaks?"

Picture stretching a rubber band so far that it breaks. Overmoisturized hair is stretchable, but after stretching it out to its point, it breaks.

I strongly advise against using ApHogee Treatments. I had a hair dresser use it on my hair, and my hair immediately became excessively dry and brittle leading to severe breakage. I also know of others who have used it with the exact same results whether applied by themselves or by a professional hair stylist: dry, brittle hair that leads to breakage.

I understand that it's an EXTREMELY heavy protein which is why I only suggest using it if the hair has undergone too many moisture treatments. Following ApHogee treatments with a deep moisturizing treatment should keep hair from becoming brittle and dry.
