Embarking on the natural hair journey is beautiful. As it is with every beautiful thing, it requires proper care and treatment. As naturals, we deal with split ends, damaged hair, shedding, breakage and a tall list of other things. One of the ways of managing these issues is through protein treatment.
What is Protein Treatment?
This is a kind of treatment which contains proteins (obviously). It adds proteins to the hair strands making it healthier, stronger and less prone to breakage. It also helps in repairing damaged hair.
What is its Main Purpose?
Protein Treatment when done right and as recommended helps in nourishing and strengthening your hair.
How Do You Know If You Need Protein Treatment?
The signs may not exactly be written on the wall but when you do notice these signs, you definitely need a protein treatment.
Does your hair fall out when you detangle or comb? Or perhaps you're suffering from post-partum breakage. This is the opportune time to get a protein treatment done. For best results, get this treatment done at least once every 4-6 weeks. Seems doable, right?
Highly Porous Hair
This generally means your hair isn't able to absorb water quickly thereby forming water bubbles on your hair instead of moisturizing it. Unfortunately, a lot of naturalistas with 4C hair have highly porous hair.
Where do we start from with this one? Damaged hair is your cue to get a protein treatment done. Probably your hair is thinning out from excessive blow drying or mishandling or maybe you over-manipulate it way too much. You might not fall under these categories but we're pretty sure you'll know your hair is damaged when it is. Once you notice your hair is damaged or on its path to getting damaged, get a protein treatment done and most importantly, repent from such bad hair practices.
Hair loses its natural oils and proteins when coloured. How do you correct this? Yes, you guessed right - protein treatment! This is even more important if you use very harsh dye or bleach. Don't wait till your hair starts falling off before you treat it. Take action now!
How often should Protein Treatment be done?
This is very essential. Although Protein Treatment as part of your hair regimen is important, too much of it would spell doom. Ideally, get one done once every 4-6 weeks. Please do not overdo this or you would end up damaging your hair instead of restoring it to its beautiful, luscious state.
How Do I Get It Done?
First off, get one from a trusted brand. Obviously Eya Naturals!! After shampooing, apply Eya Naturals Protein Treatment from roots to ends, paying attention to the ends. You can use medium heat to quicken the process. Leave in your hair for 10-15 minutes and thoroughly rinse out. If your hair is very damaged, use once every 2 weeks and switch to 4-6 weeks once its restored to its beautiful state.
