How to do a protein deep condition treatment

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you'll know that most of the writings are centralised around either protein or moisture. Yes, hair basics are really about achieving a balanc between these two, you hair needs both, in adequate amounts. If you do not know how to deep condition your hair so as to add protein to it, here's a simple guide.

What to use
You can either use your own mix of kitchen/cooking ingredients or you can purchase a ready made protein masque. Greek yoghurt and chicken eggs are a good source of protein if you'd like to use ingredients in your kitchen. However if you prefer to use a product from the shops, but you aren't sure what makes a protein masque, look out for these words in the ingredient list, hydrolysed protein, egg powder, amino acids etc.

What to do

If if you are using a commercial product, i.e. a store bought product, be careful to follow the instructions as stipulated on the product. Don't over use by letting the product stay on the hair for longer than determined, as protein deep conditioners can lead to product over load and therefore break your hair.

For home made products, know your ingredients well and understand what you are putting on the hair and its impact on hair strands.
