🐚 protein and why we need it 🐚
65-95% of human hair consists of protein.
Many hair products contain different types of protein. It can add strength, shine, "bounciness" & structure to your waves and curls.
If I don't use protein containing products, my hair gets limp & flat like on the left side. My fine curls need protein because it makes them stronger and "stiffer" so they don't loose their structure throughout the day.
🌿 It is important to note, that this does not mean your hair doesn't need moisture. It's a common misconception that protein and moisture are two extremes on one scale. In reality it's two scales and you have to balance your hair regarding both factors: you need to make sure your hair has 1) enough moisture & 2) enough protein.
The protein ingredients you want to look for in hair products:
Smaller proteins (good for all hair types)
🦋 hydrolyzed silk, keratin or collagen
🦋 peptides & amino acids
Larger proteins (better for medium or high porosity)
🐚 hydrolyzed vegetable proteins (oat, wheat, quinoa, soy)
🐚 seed and nut extracts
