Protein Treatments: What they won’t tell you!

Protein Treatments: What they won’t tell you!

The world will keep inventing a new Fad but here is something they won’t tell you about Protein treatments.

You will find many options in the market today: “Green”, “non-Green”, and DIYs. However, does your hair need these treatments and if not, what can overload of these proteins do:

Overloading Hair Shaft:
Hair is primarily composed of a protein called keratin. While protein is essential for hair health, too much of it can lead to an overload of protein on the hair shaft. This can make the hair stiff, brittle, and prone to breakage. Hair needs a balance of protein and moisture to remain flexible and strong.

Lack of Moisture:
Protein-heavy treatments can sometimes strip the hair of its natural moisture. Healthy hair requires a proper balance of protein and moisture. Excessive protein treatments can disrupt this balance, leading to dry and brittle hair.

Loss of Elasticity:
Hair needs a certain degree of elasticity to withstand styling and everyday wear. Excess protein can reduce hair’s natural elasticity, making it more susceptible to snapping or breaking when subjected to tension or stress.

Some protein treatments or products can leave behind a buildup on the hair shaft. This buildup can make hair feel heavy, rough, and less manageable.

Cuticle Damage:
The outer layer of the hair, called the cuticle, can become damaged from excessive protein use. This can make the hair prone to frizz, tangles, and a generally rough texture.

Irritation and Allergies:
Some individuals may be sensitive or allergic to certain proteins found in hair products. This can lead to scalp irritation, itching, redness, or even hair loss.

Incompatibility with Hair Type:
Different hair types have varying protein needs. Excessive protein treatments might be more suitable for hair that is damaged or lacking protein. Overloading hair with more protein might do more harm than good for hair that already has a healthy protein balance.

Colour-Treated Hair:
For those with colour-treated hair, excessive protein treatments can lead to colour fading and a reduction in the vibrancy of the hair dye.

Increased Porosity:
Overuse of protein treatments can make hair overly porous. This means the hair can absorb too much moisture, leading to dryness, fragility, and further damage.

Brittle Hair:
Excessive protein can make hair excessively rigid, making it more susceptible to breakage. This can lead to split ends and hair that easily snaps.

Dryness and Stiffness:
A protein-heavy hair shaft can lack the moisture needed for suppleness. As a result, hair may become dry, stiff, and difficult to manage.

It’s important to note that not every one’s hair will react the same way to protein treatments. Individuals with damaged or porous hair might benefit from occasional protein treatments to help strengthen the hair shaft.

However, it’s generally a good idea to maintain a balance between protein treatments and moisturising treatments to keep the hair healthy and resilient. Additionally, incorporating deep moisturising treatments into your hair care routine can help counterbalance protein-related damage.
