Protein: The Secret to Healthy Hair

Protein is necessary to achieve a balanced diet for your body, and it's an essential part of your hair's health. Protein is the secret to stronger, thicker strands and more manageable hair. The correct balance of protein and moisture is important to keep your hair the strongest it can be.

Keep your hair shiny
and strong with protein!
Your hair is made up of about 88% protein and 12% water.  A lack of protein can cause thinning hair, hair loss, weak brittle hair, and/or a dull appearance. Don't worry if you see these characteristics in your hair. There are many ways to feed your hair protein to nurse it back to health!

Adding protein-rich foods like eggs and yogurt in your diet can naturally add protein to your hair. Also, external treatments can help achieve the right amount of protein for your specific hair type. However, be careful to not overdo it on the protein treatments. Too much protein can cause hair to become brittle and break. Consult your hair dresser to determine the status of your hair's heath. This way you can decide how strong of a protein treatment your hair needs.

Very Light Treatment - Apply Paul Mitchell's Super Strong Liquid Treatment daily to help seal split ends for healthy-looking results.

Light Treatment - Try Keune's Phyto Protein Spray. Use this spray daily on dry and damaged hair to help protect your hair before, during and after coloring.

Middle-Strength Treatment - Schedule an Awapuhi Keratriplex Treatment. This in-salon treatment should be done every 4 weeks to help repair and seal hair from cuticle to core.

Intense Treatment - Try Keratin Complex's Intense RX. This treatment will repair extremely damaged hair form the inside-out. See your stylist for the initial in-salon treatment, continuing with daily application to ensure longer lasting healthier hair.   

Remember - Too much protein can dry out hair so be sure to keep your protein/hydration ratio balanced by using a deep conditioner. Apply Moroccanoil's Intense Hydrating Mask twice weekly to bring the needed hydration into your tresses.

Protein is the primary component of hair, so be sure to supply your mane with the nutrition it needs to stay strong. Healthy hair is beautiful hair!
