Your hair is made up of protein. Everyday styling and environmental pollution can strip moisture out of your hair. The best way to put moisture and shine back to your hair is by getting a protein treatment. Protein smooths the cuticle of the hair, creating smoother strands and stronger hair. Protein treatments are expensive at salons. Instead of buying those pricey treatments you can make your own easily at home. Homemade protein treatments are all natural and with frequent use you get a long lasting result.
Here are the 3 easy homemade protein treatments for dry and damaged hair :
Egg Mask :
Dairy products like cream and yogurt contain Lactic acid which gently cleanses while fat moisturizes. Mix egg and yogurt for a deep conditioning protein treatment.
Simply, massage 3 tbsp sour cream or yogurt into your hair. Let it sit for 20 minutes. Rinse and shampoo hair. You can apply this treatment every week.
Mayonnaise and avocado:
Mayonnaise is made of oil and egg so it’s very moisturizing for your hair. The high-fat content of avocados makes hair less dry and prone to breakage. Mix two tbsp mayonnaise and half mashed avocado in a bowl until creamy. Apply this homemade conditioner through your hair concentrating on the ends. For even distribution, use a wide tooth comb.Image Source: Google Images.
