Protein is a major component for our hair. I mean technically speaking it’s essentially what it is, slender structures of keratin packed on top of each other.
This is why when you notice your hair is super soft, weakened, and in many cases not holding a style, it could mean you are lacking protein.
This is often a result of damaged hair due to heat, color and even over conditioning. Yes, it’s possible to deep condition your hair too much!
To combat this you can choose from a variety of different products out there to incorporate protein back into your hair to fill in the gaps and strengthen your strands.
Here are 5 products you can purchase that are great sources to use for protein treatments:
