Products with protein

Below is a list of some medium to hard protein treatments that I have either tried or seen several other bloggers rave about and use as part of their relaxed hair regimen.

To know if you are currently using any products with protein look for these types of ingredients: Hydrolyzed Keratin, Hydrolyzed silk protein, or Hydrolyzed wheat protein.

My favorite hair product that gives my hair a light amount of protein is the SheaMoisture High Porosity Moisture Correct Masque.

Why you should add protein products to your hair regimen |

Keep in mind

A key thing to remember when using hard protein treatments is to always do a moisturizing deep condition afterward. This helps maintain the protein-moisture balance your hair needs. 

If you have hair that is low porosity and/or is protein sensitive, doing protein treatments or using hair products with protein ingredients can do more harm than good.

Also, do protein treatments in moderation. Even if you have hair that likes protein, overdoing it and having too much protein isn't good for your hair. It can make your hair feel hard, stiff, and fragile so it breaks.

When all else fails ask your hairstylist if they think you need to use protein on your hair and what they recommend.

Do you use protein on your hair? What protein-based products do you use?
