Hair, Hair, everywhere: Moisture vs Protein


In order to maintain healthy hair, there must be a delicate balance of moisture and protein. The trouble is most people with haissemr woes can’t tell if their hair needs moisture, protein or both. Figuring out what your hair needs is a simple task if you know what you are looking for! A wet assessment allows you to see exactly what your hair needs so you can take better care of your strands.

Wet Assessment Break Down

If your hair:

(Wet or Dry) Stretches slighty/returns to original length /no breaking= you are balanced just stick with maintaining!
(Wet ot Dry) Stretching a little more than normal then breaks= more protein

(Wet or Dry)Stretching, stretching, stretching/no breakage yet= more protein

(Wet)- Weak, gummy, mushy, limp hair= more protein

(Wet or Dry) Very little/no stretching then breakage= more moisture

(Dry) Rough/tough/hard/tangly/brittle hair= more moisture

Unsure= err on the side of moisture

Stay tuned and I will talk about what kind of treatments are best for whatever your hair needs. Personally, I am still on the hunt for the perfect protein treatment for me. I will be sure to keep you posted!
