Back To Basics – Home-made Protein Treatment

Back To Basics – Home-Made Protein Treatment

We already know how important protein is for black hair but just in case you've been living in a cave and didn't know, here's some light reading for you herehere and here.

Not all of us however are in a position to purchase Aphogee two step protein treatment, Nexuss Emergencee or other protein treatments. If you are unable to find a suitable one or you are just after a more natural solution, there is a simple recipe that you can use to strengthen your tresses with ingredients you probably already have or can pick up easily at most supermarkets.

Hi Alma,
I just LOVE this site!!! it’s helping me on my journey!

hi alma i was wondering is the protein mixture supposed to be runny? and how munch is 10g i think i had put less than that amount. thanks in advance.

It should be a bit runny yes but not to watery. Kind of like the aphogee 2 step.

Hi, thanks for the Protein Recipe it really does work! My question is about my edges. I not knowingly let a proffesional hairstylist give me a quik weave. Of course it was with glue. My edges were ripped out. What is your suggestion to regrow edges?

I am a senior and have been natural for about two plus years (not yet three years). I have several (3) textures of hair on my head and am grey/black…..a good more of and even mixture of each. I love my natural hair because God created me with that type of hair. Now, I am wanting to know the best natural way to maintain the moisture, since the grey hair is harder than the black hair. When I wear it without the protective style of two-strand twist, it dries out before the day ends. If I am out socializing I am concerned of the change that will take place before I get home. Please advise to the best of your ability. Thanks in advance for reading this request. PEACE AND LOVE!!

Where can I buy gelatin? Or is there another recipe with more accessible ingredients?

Gelatine is available at most supermarkets. Check the dessert isle next to jello.

Alma,
I love your site. I am a pale red head with stubbornly straight and oily hair, and my daughter is a beautiful biracial child. She is 8 years old, and sad to say, I have been failing at trying to care for her hair. It is constantly breaking and sheds all of the time. Would this type of a protein treatment help to begin to repair her hair? Any suggestions would be helpful. I just feel horrible that I have not been able to do better, but I am reading through all of the articles on here and hopefully I can bring health to her hair.
