These protein drops are suitable for all hair types.
We have extensively tested it on low and high porosity hair, high and low elasticity.
Which Hair Needs Protein?
- Damaged Hair / Porous Hair: Sun-bleached, from frequent swimming in a pool / chlorinated water, wavy and permanently dyed or semi-permanently dyed hair usually needs more protein.
- If the ends are thinner than the center and appear lighter in color, your hair may need protein, especially at the ends. Protein balances porosity in damaged hair.
- Dry hair - if you've tried everything with protein-free masks and oil treatments and those treatments don't work, the dryness of your hair could indicate a need for protein.
- Thin Hair: Protein also supports thin / fine hair as it adds just a little bit of extra stiffness - protein is support for your hair. People with coarse hair tend to find that using protein too often makes their hair feel stiff or brittle, dry or sticky, or possibly too soft and limp.
- Before coloring or highlighting or after a lot of exposure to the sun and dry wind, the hair can benefit from hydrolysed proteins in products.
- Break in your hair. If you've already tried deep conditioning or a long oil treatment, it's time to try some protein. Because protein helps to keep hair hydrated (it slows down water loss!). It can help reduce breakage in dehydrated hair by increasing hydration. Hair is less likely to break when it is flexible and hair is most flexible when it is well hydrated.
- Since your hair is made of protein, each hair needs protein, to a greater or lesser extent.
Signs Hair Needs Protein:
- Hair that loses bounce may need protein.
- Hair that breaks down while using a lot of good (protein-free) conditioner probably needs protein.
- Hair that looks and feeldry despite using oils and conditioners may need protein for hydration.
- Hair that tangles more than usual.
- Curls that look undefined after styling or refreshening
