    Thanks for this, I had actually forgotten about my ceramide oils. I will go back to sealing with them during the week.

I pre-poo with a ceramide based oil, shampoo then do a protein treatment (obviously followed by moisture), then protective style. I do this every week and I already noticed a reduction in breakage.
