DOES YOUR HAIR NEED PROTEIN?

Organic Shampoo and Treatment to strengthen and repair damaged hair.

If you have ever wondered if your hair is in need a protein treatment and struggled with choosing the right one, then you are not alone!

Knowing if your hair needs protein can be tricky, as can finding the right protein treatment for you. There are many benefits to using hair products containing protein, and It can be a very effective way to repair damage caused by heated tools, styling or chemical processing. Protein is also effective in reducing breakage and strengthening fine, fragile or weakened hair.

WHAT IS KERATIN?

A single hair strand is made up primarily of a protein called Keratin. Keratin is the fibrous, structural protein found in human hair, nails, and of the epithelial cells in the outermost layers of the skin. Keratin serves important structural and protective functions and keeps the hair healthy and strong, as well as maintains the hair’s elasticity.

When the hair is under stress and subject to damage caused by heat styling, pollution, colouring and other things, the keratin in the hair can start to break down.

Keratin may also be compromised by vitamin and mineral deficiency, so maintaining a balanced, protein-rich diet is also essential for healthy hair growth.

HOW DOES A PROTEIN HAIR TREATMENT WORK?

A protein treatment for hair is generally a product containing a type of protein that can be easily absorbed by the hair, which works to strengthen and repair the hair’s keratin.

A protein hair treatment works to repair hair strands by attaching hydrolysed proteins to the hair cuticle, and filling gaps in the hair’s cuticle layer caused by damage. By filling these gaps and placing a barrier around the hair shaft, the hair is strengthened, and the likelihood of future damage is decreased.

 

SIGNS THAT YOUR HAIR COULD NEED SOME PROTEIN:

Hair is porous

If the hair is highly porous, it’s likely that there are gaps in the cuticle layer that make it more vulnerable.

Because this type of hair often absorbs too much water, tangles and frizz may be a familiar problem. A protein treatment can help seal the gaps in porous hair and deliver the nourishment it needs.

Your hair is coloured or lightened

Hair that has been colour treated or lightened is usually porous and more susceptible to damage than natural hair.

This is due to the chemicals used to open the hair cuticle during the colouring process. A protein treatment can help to strengthen colour-treated hair by repairing any damage caused to the hair’s cuticle by colouring.

Hair has lost elasticity

Another sign that your hair may need protein is loss of elasticity. Hair that has poor elasticity will not bounce back when stretched, or even worse, break.

If you are finding your hair breaks easily then you could most likely benefit from a protein product to help fortify the hair and regain its elasticity.

Hair breaks or sheds easily

While losing up to 100 strands a day is completely normal and a usual part of the hair growth turn-over cycle, excessive shedding or shortening of the hair caused by breakage can be a sign that your hair lacks protein.

Hair appears limp and lifeless

Hair that appears flat, limp or lacking in volume can be another sign that it may need some protein.

Protein will help revitalise the strands and make the hair visibly thicker and voluminous. 

TIP!

If you are unsure whether your hair needs a protein boost, asking for advice from your hairdresser is the best idea. A professional hairdresser will be able to diagnose your hair type and needs, and recommend the best course of protein products for you.

ORGANIC SWEET ALMOND PROTEIN

Almonds are one of the richest, natural protein sources available. Using hair products containing almond extracts, as well as consuming a diet with almonds, will ensure you get an adequate dose of protein to keep your keratin levels intact and your hair in optimum condition. 

Hydrolysed sweet almond protein is a protein that has been extracted from almonds and liquefied.

It acts as a protective and moisturising agent and is known to reduce skin irritation and improve skin tolerability.

Almonds are rich in vitamin E, as well as omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, which are  some of the ingredients vital to healthy hair. These make the hair shiny, strong and also nourish the hair follicles, encouraging healthy hair growth.

Vitamin E protects the hair by preventing free radicals in the environment from eroding hair quality and strength. Almonds also contain good amounts of magnesium, a nutrient which is linked to hair growth and thickness as well as biotin, which repairs brittle hair prone to breakage.

ORGANIC HYDROLISED RICE PROTEIN

Hydrolysed Rice Protein extracted from rice bran is a water soluble, cosmetic grade vegetable protein that is rich in amino acids beneficial to hair and skin. Rice, known for its mild composition, is often used by people who are allergy-prone or sensitive to ingredients.

     

    Hydrolysed Rice Protein has been shown to significantly increase total hair volume, as well as adding natural shine to the hair.

    By increasing the ability of the hair and skin to bind moisture, it also leads to increased flexibility (elasticity) and strength.

    Benefits of Rice Protein:

    • Improves hair volume and manageability
    • Helps fortify hair to prevent damage
    • Gentle for all skin types
    • Gluten-free
