Focusing on proteins both from the inside and the outside will rejuvenate the beauty and health of your locks.
Why do you need protein for your hair?
- Protein gives your hair strength. Without adequate supplies of protein, your hair will break easily and be weak.
- Protein gives your hair structure. Each hair follicle is mostly made up of a protein called keratin. The protein is what gives it definition and actually creates each hair strand.
- Protein keeps hair moisture at the proper balance. The protein in the hair joins with water molecules which prevent dryness. Not enough protein means not enough moisture.
How can I make sure my hair has enough protein?
Protein for your hair can come from the inside or from the outside.
Making sure that you have enough protein in your diet will go a long way in giving you healthy hair.
Most people think “red meat” when they think protein. But there are many other sources of protein that are better for your overall health. Poultry contains plenty of protein with less fat than red meat. Other significant protein sources include yogurt, eggs, or salmon.
If you are vegan or vegetarian, the protein available to you comes with a variety of body building vitamins and minerals, too. For the highest quality protein, be sure to combine your beans with grains to get the proper balance of amino acids.
Protein from the outside
The old-fashioned way to add protein to your hair is to slather on some egg or mayo and sit around awhile like a potato salad waiting for a picnic.
But who has time for this? It’s much easier to replace your current shampoo and conditioner with protein-rich hair products like ECRU New York Acacia Protein products.
If you need a big boost of protein for the health of your dry or damaged hair, use a deep treatment like ECRU New York Masque, Oil, or Beauty Balm Cream.
