DIY Natural Protein Treatments!

Deep conditioning is great. However, it can cause your hair to become weak from too much moisture believe it or not.  I like to do a deep moisturizing treatment one week and the other week a protien treatment.

Facts about the nutrients and benefits in the ingredients I will like to share with you. 

1. Avocado has some protien and it’s rich in fatty acids making it very moisturizing for your hair. Which is a bonus of moisture added to this protien treatment. 

2. Yogurt can help reverse hair damage caused by product build up and air pollution. The lactic acid in yogurt gently strips away dirt while the milk fat moisturizes.

3.Eggs can be a great source of protein for your hair. The yolk is rich in fats and proteins which is extremely moisturizing. The egg yolk deposits lipids/fats into our hair when we apply these protien treatments and they’re AMAZING nutrients in our hair! 

You’re hair is mainly composed of protien and protien keeps your hair strong and structured.  Soooooo, when you realize your hair is breaking its most likely time to do a protien treatment and I took some time out to put together some incredible DIY natural hair protien treatment recipes I found and put to the test to make your curls strong and CULFIDANT!
