Once damaged hair has been cleansed, use a deep conditioning treatment to rebuild and strengthen the hair.
- Key ingredients to look for are Silk Amino Acids or other types of proteins like soy.
- As mentioned, hair is made of keratin, which is mostly protein, so when you use protein treatments you are literally fortifying the building blocks of the hair.
- Relaxing or dying the hair can compromise the protein bonds of the hair so it is important to take that into consideration when deciding on how often to do protein treatments.
- Hair that has the proper protein balance is able to function more efficiently in absorbing moisture thus ensuring shiny, lustrous hair.
