It doesn’t matter what type of curls you have; all hair needs a good balance of protein and moisture to stay healthy. This protein is called keratin, and is naturally found in hair. However, when your curl’s keratin balance is off, this can lead to problems like breakage or damage. However, you don’t want to over do it with the protein or risk creating other types of issues to deal with. If you over saturate your curls with protein, you can find that they’ll become mushy and difficult to deal with. There are a few great products out that can help you maintain your curl’s protein balance and here are a few:
Curly Hair Solutions Pure Silk Protein Deep Moisturizing Treatment: This protein rich treatment is infused with silk proteins, making it gentle enough on curls that you can use it regularly. It’s a great one to add to your routine when you’re cleansing. It helps strengthen curls, works to delay color fading, and adds intense softness back into stressed tresses.
Aphogee Keratin 2 Minute Reconstructor: For those times you can’t make it into the salon for a visit with your stylist, this product is wonderful. If your curls are chemically treated or have suffered from excessive heat damage, this product will be perfect for you. The protein infuses all the holes in the curl’s shaft caused by damage to create a sleeker look, making your curls look more uniform, shinier and softer.
Bee Mine Avocado Cream Balanced Conditioner: If your cuticle has been blown open from damage or by moisture seeking hair, this conditioner will help smooth them back down. Your curls will be gently nourished without being weighed down, which will make them easier to style and manage, as well as help curls retain their natural shape.
Aubrey GPB Lavender Ylang Ylang Conditioner: If your curls are looking a little down in the dumps, this ultra nourishing conditioner will revitalize them. It’s loaded with glycoproteins which will help strengthen curls to return lost softness and shine.
