Are Protein Treatments And Conditioners Absolutely Necessary In Your Hair Journey?

Woman with natural hair with hand in hairBetween hair growth pills, hair growth oils and pomades that tingle when you apply them to your scalp, we are aware of how the black hair industry has dazzled us with their marketing hype and promises of miraculous hair growth.

So much so that they have made us believe for years that you need certain products in order to grow your hair long.

It's along the same lines as the diet and supplement industry blinding us every few months with miraculous fruits or herbs presumably consumed by the people of some remote Peruvian tribe for thousands of years which helped keep them trim. Yeah right.

About Alma Ruddock


I’m Alma Ruddock, the founder and editor-in-chief of Blackhairinformation.com. I stumbled on a hair care forum back in 2008 frustrated with my breaking relaxed hair and the information that I found there changed the fate of my hair, and quite possibly my life, forever! I immediately started to transition to natural hair and started BlackHairInformation.com as a way to help both myself and other women of color achieve their dreams of long healthy hair. I have now achieved my goal length and I continue to help others achieve their dreams too. My three passions are hair, art and entrepreneurship and I love to be able to bring my unique view on hair growth and successful hair journeys to our readers. I am an eternal optimist and workaholic. In addition to BHI I have founded quite a few other websites and businesses including Elongtress Hair Vitamins and Urban Gyal which all fall under the umbrella of my company Coils Media Ltd.

Ummm….conditioners are. Protein….once in awhile.
ANSWER: Yes!

Angela Williams

I’m 15yrs Naturals & have NEVER done a protein treatment. I just concentrate on keeping my hair moisturized and I don’t have any breakage issues(my individual strands are strong), however, I do use other products that have a little protein in them such as Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus and Yucca & Boabab lines. I also have Low Porosity hair & I read somewhere that LoPo hair doesn’t require protein treatments.

Never had a protein treatment because I dont know how or else I probably would have had one but my hair is soft, growing and healthy.

I conditioned my hair & moisturize it on a regular basis though I should probably do protein treatment more often. My hair is long but very uneven in the back.

Maybell Lena Killion

Conditioner is a must for my hair and so is steam for moisture! I do a protein treatment maybe twice a year. I feel it helps stop all damage that could be looming and gives me a fresh start.

For me it def is

I believe so, before I stopped relaxing I had two different hair dressers tell me to my face that 1 I needed to learn how to take care of my hair at home and 2 I needed to deep condition on a weekly basis. When I lived in Tampa I used to go to the hair salon every two weeks consistently and my hair grew very long will relaxed when I relocated to the Tallahassee area while I was searching for that same quality of hair dresser my hair suffered and I wind up just wearing braids for 4 years while I transitioned to natural.
