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.

My son has really thick hair and this is the only product that works on his hair and makes it easier for me to detangle.

Love love love it!!!

I have been looking for the right products for my daughter’s hair. I’m not very familiar with textured curly hair and all my education of how to care for it was from YouTube tutorials and advices from other women. So I’m so happy to find this oil. I simply follow what’s on the tin and it makes wonders! Definitely buying again!

"Absolutely amazing!"

I bought this product for my daughters. As predicted my phone was jammed with inbound voice notes praising not just the quality of the packaging (it's very eco friendly), but also the award winning hair care product, Quench anti breakage creme. I had been trying to persuade her to try the product for sometime but she claimed her own homemade natural products will suffice. Hear her now: "Dad! Dad! ...This product is the business!! My hair loves these products!". I'm waiting for the video she's making... coming soon!
Thanks a million to Root2tip haircare products.


Amazing product smells great light and not too greasy would definitely use again 😁👍


Products arrived in a timely fashion and well packaged.
The actual product itself is great - my son is mixed heritage with very coarse coils. The honey rain juice detangler and heavens hair milk are both light and not sticky and moistures my sons hair with no excess residue.
The packaging of the products isn’t great - the detangler bottle broke when trying to open it and I had to tip the product into a spray bottle to use it and prevent spillage.
The heavenly milk bottle was only filled up three quarters of the way - product had not been filled to the top which is a real shame. I like to support small independent businesses but feel as customers we should be supported by the business to do that. Maybe I was just unlucky with my order and it wouldn’t stop me ordering again 😁.
I am unable to review the shampoo and conditioner as we haven’t tried them yet. Shampoo does smell amazing on first sniff!

Fir some reason I can’t edit the stars - I would rate this as 3-4 due to packaging issues.
