5 signs your hair is in need of a Protein Treatment

Hair is made up of a protein called keratin, which provides structure, strength, and elasticity to the hair strands. However, over time, the hair can lose its protein content due to factors like heat styling, chemical treatments, and environmental stressors. When this happens, the hair becomes weak, brittle, and prone to breakage. Here are five signs that your hair is in need of protein:

Excessive shedding: If you notice an excessive amount of hair falling out when you brush or comb it, this could be a sign that your hair is lacking protein. This can happen because the hair shaft is weak and can’t hold onto the hair follicle.

Lack of elasticity: When your hair lacks protein, it loses its ability to stretch and bounce back. This can lead to hair that feels stiff and brittle, and that doesn’t respond well to styling.

Frizz: Frizz can be a sign of protein deficiency because the hair cuticle is lifted and damaged. Without adequate protein, the hair cuticle can’t lay flat, which causes frizz and makes the hair look dull and lifeless.

Breakage: Protein-deficient hair is more prone to breakage because it lacks the strength and structure that protein provides. This can be especially noticeable in the ends of the hair, which are the oldest and most damaged parts.

Dryness: Protein helps to retain moisture in the hair. Without enough protein, the hair can become dry and brittle, which can make it more difficult to manage and style.

If you notice any of these signs, it may be time to add some protein to your hair care routine. You can find a protein treatment in our online store by clicking here.
