Should We Use Protein Or Deep Conditioning Treatment?
We all know that protein is important to our hair and skin. The question, however, is how much? And what type of protein does the body need to repair itself best? In this blog post, we’ll explore these questions in-depth and answer Should We Use Protein Or Deep Conditioning Treatment?
This article is about the debate on whether protein or deep conditioning treatments are better for hair. Protein strengthens, restores, and rebuilds damaged hair while a deep conditioning treatment moisturizes and is vital to dry hair. So which one should you use?
Why Does My Hair Need Protein Or Deep Conditioning ?
Making hair healthy and strong is no small feat. Though your scalp naturally produces the protein, many factors can result in your locks not working with you. Poor diet, chemical detergents, or even hot styling tools play a role in the overworked battle for volume. However, once it feels like there’s nothing left to do but submit to thin (and lifeless) strands – it’s time to push back! Introducing our new mousse full of hair-loving ingredients that provide intense nourishment will make the braids robust and voluminous enough for any environs they encounter next week!
Can I Have Too Much Protein In My Hair?
When hair starts to get too healthy and shiny, it tips us that we’re applying too many protein treatments. Protein is the furthest thing from what you want for your hair! If you feel like this problem has gone on long enough, read our article on what to do next.
Why Does My Hair Need Moisture?
Great question! First off, my hair is sweaty. That’s right; it sweats too. And with that sweat comes natural oils and whatever products you use in your barnet (including hairspray!).
Those oils are essential to beautiful hair – they coat the strands of hair to look shiny and full of life. But when air gets mixed up in there or after you hop out from pool time * lookin’ like J-Lo* for a little bit, those natural moisturizers get spun around the locks as well – robbing them of moisture! It’s kind of like if you never sealed the lid on your paint bucket when painting a room: eventually, all that hard work will be gone because water will seep through and evaporate.
Is There Such A Thing As Too Much Moisture?
I’ve noticed that the curly girls in different parts of the country tend to have other hair. In my experience, people from Florida seem to have more delicate hair than, say, New York or Texas. What are your thoughts on what factors affect hair density?
Final Thought About Protein Or Deep Conditioning:
It makes sense that if you’re from a warm climate and worked outdoors as a child, that you’d likely have thinner hair than a person who grew up in the north and worked inside during their youth. Even now though our bodies may acclimate to the climate we live in (i.e., living and working indoors for most of your life), there are other factors such as illness/diet, stress, etc., that can still have an impact on your hair.
You’re right about people from warm climates having more delicate hair; I’ve seen this in practice with the many clients who visit my studio from Florida (I live near New Orleans and get lots of transplants here). Warmer regions often experience a lot more damage to their hair from the sun and heat. I have many clients who have lived in Florida or California with gorgeous-looking hair, but once they move to Louisiana, their hair becomes drier and thinner.
