All About Proteins

Proteins And What They Do
Natural hair needs a balance of moisture and protein. All proteins can strengthen. Every protein has different characteristics.
 
If you want to know if you need protein or moisture, try this:
 
Step 1: Wet your hair.
 
Step 2: Get about an inch of your hair between your fingers. Stretch hair.
 
*The amount of stretch can show protein needs. If your hair needs moisture it won’t stretch at all and then breaks, or if it feels extremely rough and brittle.
 
*Your hair needs protein if it stretches a long way and then breaks (or doesn’t break at all), or if it is limp and feels gummy. (It’s too moist)
 
*Your hair stretches only a little without breaking your hair is well balanced. The amount of protein and moisture in your hair is just right.
