Protein Treatments For Hair Benefits

Protein Treatments For Hair Benefits

I hope you are all keeping well. As we transition into the easing of lockdown, our hair needs to be protected more. Protein is a key part of protecting your hair. Here are 7 protein treatments for hair benefits:

1. Protein Treatments Reach Deeper Layers Of Your Tresses

Protein treatments function by piercing through both the outer and inner layers of the hair shaft, which helps to strengthen your hair strands.

2. Environmental Factors

Your hair can weaken based on environmental factors. This includes any chemicals or even extreme weather conditions. If your hair is damaged by chemicals, like hair dying, for example, protein can help build back up that strength.

3. Our Hair Has Been Kept Inside More

Due to the virus outbreak, many of us have been spending more time indoors. In turn, our hair hasn't experienced the weather as much. Black natural hair, in particular, is very sensitive to the weather and so protein treatments can help protect it as we go outside more.

4. Natural Protein Treatments Are Enriching

We are a fan of hair masques that include natural enriching properties. Silk protein, henna protein and wheat protein all form our TRIPLE Protein Strengthening Hair Mask. It is currently on sale! So, don't miss out on your chance to bag this great deal!

5. Retaining Moisture

Hair is formed of both protein and moisture. However, when there is a lack of protein, water molecules do not have anything to bind on. The amount of moisture that your hair retains depends on how much protein it has. Therefore, protein treatments actually help to ensure that your hair can retain moisture, when used in balance.

6. Restore Elasticity From Protein Treatments

Protein help restore elasticity to your hair. This may have been lost through hair damage or breakage.

7. Different Benefits For Different Protein Treatments

There is a range of different protein treatments that you can choose from to help your hair with a specific issue you may be facing. For example, keratin treatments help chemically or heat damaged hair more, whilst wheat proteins help more with increasing moisture. Hydrolysed silk protein helps with elasticity, whilst vegetable protein absorbs into hair without creating build-up. So, you can choose which treatments work best for your hair situation.

I hope these protein treatments for hair benefits help you as we all transition into going out more as lockdown lifts.

Great for my scalp

Love this oil, not heavy, and doesn't leave any residue, keeps my scalp moisturised and flake free, also helped with my eczema.

Been using it since August of last year, I like to wait till I get to use a product properly before I write any review.

Great buy.

Great product!!

Love this! Great detangle spray.

Nice product

My girls and I have all different hair types, I love the moisture it gives us all. The only down side is my kids are reluctant to use as they don't like how it smells.

Happy Customer

Bought this product for my 8mth old. Was on a search for something that agrees with her sensitive scalp,and already thick hair.I am loving it 😍 will definitely be buying again 😁

My scalp tingled with delight!

From the second I put this on my hair it felt amazing, my scalp came alive and I could really feel the product working on my scalp, even after rinsing it out. The fragrance is perfect and the foam level is really good, I was quite surprised by how little I needed to achieve a lot of foam. My hair (Type 4c) looks and feels great, no breakage, feels soft and is glossy. I normally dread washing with shampoo as my hair has to "recover" from being stripped of its oils but not today, I felt like something was added for a change. I followed the shampoo, with the Detangling leave-in conditioner but to be honest I could have got away without it as it was so conditioned by the shampoo alone. No tugging, no breakage, it was a dream. Excellent product 11 out of 10!
