Moisture or Protein!?

 

Knowing what your hair needs is a huge deal when it comes to home care. As stylists, we can only guarantee our services when our clients are using the proper products at home, especially after coloring and chemical services. Every pass of a heated iron or blow dryer, every color and lightener, even the sunshine on a beautiful day will compromise your hair! When it comes to taking care of your hair do you know when you need just a moisturizer or just a protein? Most people don’t! If you’re using a moisturizer when you need a protein treatment you wont see the changes in your hair that you need! Same as having too many protein treatments in your hair when you really need a moisturizer. Too much protein is just as bad as not enough! So, how do you know what you need? Here is a basic break down of which is which:

MOISTURE
● Softens the hair
● Provides nutrients to the hair, even on a much deeper level
● Waters the hair, much like a plant, keeping it hydrated
● Makes hair much easier to manipulate, shape, and form
● Allows for new/virgin hair to be nourished to health

PROTEIN
● Strengthens the hair
● Brings protein and amino acids to the hair, after it has been stripped of it
● Rebuilds the hair follicle, as the natural hair follicle is naturally 70% keratin protein
● Decreases hair breakage and shedding
● Repairs damaged hair
