What's a Protein Treatment:
A protein treatment is a conditioner that add strength and resiliency to damaged hair by attaching hydrolyzed proteins. That way your hair gets stronger, and is less likely to be damaged in the future. There are tons of different protein treatments on the market but I’m going to show you a more natural alternative for a protein treatment using things you might already have at home.

Low elasticity: If your hair does not spring back to its natural state or curl pattern when you pull on your freshly moisturized hair.
Getting a Limp, stringy or gummy reaction when hair is wet.
Extreme dryness and breakage.
