What is Protein Treatment for Hair

Let’s clarify what a protein treatment actually is. To put it simply, our hair is protein. A protein called keratin makes up the majority of a hair strand, keeping it healthy, strong and full of elasticity.

But with damage caused by styling and maintenance, pollution, coloring and other things that don’t do your hair much good, the keratin starts to break down.

Certain lifestyle and diet choices can also lead to general keratin-deficiency in your body because maintaining a balanced, protein-rich diet is essential for healthy hair growth (some even claimed that certain protein-rich foods can make your hair grow faster!) and a diet lack of protein can contribute to hair loss.

The combination of poor diet and damage caused by styling caused your hair strands to break, making your hair look and feel unhappy. That’s when you may need a helping hand from a hair protein treatment.

A protein treatment for hair is a product loaded with protein that can easily be absorbed, strengthens and repairs the keratin. It can either be a treatment you purchase from a beauty store, or a homemade protein treatment.


What Does a Protein Hair Treatment Do

What Does a Protein Hair Treatment Do

A protein hair treatment will repair hair strands by attaching hydrolysed proteins to the hair cuticle and hardening the cuticle layer.

If there are holes in the hair cuticle, protein treatment will patch up these gaps and place a barrier around the hair shaft to lessen future damage. This is how it strengthens and repairs your severely damaged hair.

There are many benefits of using a protein treatment on your hair. It can be an effective way to temporarily repair damaged hair by filling in the gaps on the hair cuticle, caused by styling or heat damage. They are also great in reducing breakage and making your hair smoother, stronger and shinier.

But, if you’re about to ask, ‘Can protein treatments damage hair?’, the answer is that overuse of these treatments can have some ‘side effects’. Adding an excessive amount of protein to your hair can make it feel dry, brittle and stiff, therefore your first step should be checking how often your protein treatment needs to be applied – and sticking to it.

Plus, most protein treatments should always be accompanied with moisture restoring and avoid  deep conditioning treatment that would render your hair strands getting stiff and crunchy.

The most important thing to remember is that most types of hair protein treatment are to be used on severely damaged hair, not hair that is healthy (but, maybe a little dry) or minor damage.

How Often Should a Protein Treatment Be Used

How Often Should a Protein Treatment Be Used

How often should a protein treatment be done will depend on the type of treatment you choose, as well as your hair type. Some gentler types of protein treatments can be used more frequently (for example, once a week or so), while more intense protein treatments should be used less often (every 4 to 6 weeks) and with extra care.  Before you apply a protein treatment, do read the label to see how frequently it should be used.
