A protein hair treatment is essential if your hair is damaged or you have split ends. Protein helps to rebuild hair strands by filling in the hair shaft, which adds strength and resiliency to your hair. Since your hair is made from 100% keratin, (which is protein), protein is a must-have! Protein is the structure of your hair. Without it, your hair can become dry, brittle, and much more susceptible to breakage.
Protein hair treatment helps in improving the appearance of damaged and dry hair.Â Protein masks can help in smoothening hair shafts as well as reduce flyaways and frizz. Due to this, protein treatment is considered to be apt for dry, damaged and chemically treated hair.Â Not only this, it is used for adding shine and bounce to the hair. These days, protein based hair treatments are easily available at all salons and drug stores. However, if you donâ€™t want to use over the counter options, you can also try home remedies which are equally effective yet more affordable
Homemade Protein Hair Treatment:
- Add 1 egg into a mixing bowl.

Protein hair treatment also commercially available in the form of protein products. These products are rich in natural proteins and thus feed the hair with the much-needed nutrient. However, if you have badly damaged hair due to frequent chemical treatments, it would be wise to get the protein treatment done from a professional salon, rather than attempting it at home, with the help of commercially available products. Also, it is imperative to know which products really work, because all the products available at the supermarket may not suit your individual hair type. You can always consult your hair expert and ask him to recommend a suitable hair product for you.
