What Do Proteins Do to Your Afro Curly Hair?

What Do Proteins Do to Afro Curly HairHair is primarily made up of protein filaments, called keratin, along with chains of amino acids. Proteins are important as they work by penetrating both the exterior and interior of the hair shaft. Afro curly hair tends to have too much protein, hence it’s thick, strong structure. 

Proteins also aid with strengthening the hair and reducing any weakness caused by environmental stressors, chemical treatments etc. As they penetrate deep into the strand they give strength to the hair and can even temporarily reverse damage. This is especially true because a high percentage of proteins are absorbed by the hair and then remain within the hair for some.

How To Tell If Your Hair Needs Moisture or Protein?

If your curls are getting looser or look damaged from over processing, then it is sure to require some treatment. Most likely your hair will feel light and breaks easily, this is because it’s lacking the protein that gives it strength and structure.
