Hello, Salam Alaykum
What are protein conditioners?
Protein conditioners are hair conditioners that strengthen and reconstruct the hair structure with hydrolyzed proteins, as well as conditioning and sealing ingredients. You should look for products that explicitly say protein, reconstructor, or strengthener.
Benefits of protein conditioner:
In my quest for a healthy long hair, i did a lot of research on DIYs [Do it yourself]hair treatment and protein treatment is one of the most important treatments for hair.
Hair is comprised of 70% keratin protein. It’s stored in the innermost layer of the hair. Protein is responsible for hair’s strength and structure.
A protein-based conditioner can strengthen damaged hair and replenish protein lost through regular maintenance such as shampooing and styling.
A proper moisture protein balance is important for the overall quality of your hair. One without the other leads to breakage. Conditioning with protein deep conditioner biweekly or monthly can help you maintain balance.
