Is Your Hair Dry or Frizzy? You Should Try Protein Free Hair Care Products!

Protein can be found in most all of your hair products, but not all hair types need protein. In fact, this ingredient could be the leading cause for all of your hair problems!

What Is Protein Sensitive Hair?

Protein sensitive hair is hair that is extremely sensitive to the effects of protein (the ingredient) in your hair products.

When hair is exposed to too much protein you actually cause more harm than good, and will begin to experience negative results such as dry hair, dull hair, and breakage.

How To Know If Your Hair Is Protein Sensitive

how do you know if your hair is protein sensitive

Follow these steps to find out if your hair is sensitive to protein:

  1. After getting out of the shower do not apply any styling products
  2. Allow hair to air dry with minimal effort, i.e. brushing through
  3. Feel the texture of the hair once dried

Once your hair is dry and you try to brush through it, you will notice that your hair is protein sensitive if you experience breakage and/or split ends.

Also, if your hair feels hard, rough, or dehydrated, it’s likely that your hair has been exposed to too much protein, resulting in damage to your hair.

What Is The Difference Between Protein Sensitivity And Protein Overload?

There is a difference between protein sensitivity and a protein overload in that a protein sensitivity means protein can become harmful to your hair over time and through repetitive exposure.

A protein overload or “overdose” is when you have supplemented protein through treatments or products that contain high amounts of protein.

When you experience protein overload, your hair’s hydration and moisture will be depleted, resulting in serious damage and/or hair breakage.

Signs Of Protein Overload In Hair

Hair that has a protein overload will look and feel:

  • Dry and brittle. Because your hair lacks moisture to stretch, hair becomes less manageable and more susceptible to breakage.
  • Frizzy! Protein depletes hydration, leaving hair with unwanted frizz that is less manageable.
  • Extremely dull-looking without any luster.
  • Fragile. You may notice that hair breakage comes easily, just by brushing through your hair.
  • Rough or hard. Without introducing any styling products hair may feel rough or hard to the touch.

Why Should You Use Protein Free Hair Products?

Why should you use protein free hair products

Hydration and moisture is the key to keeping your hair happy and healthy—no matter your hair type. Our hair needs hydration to become more manageable, prevent split ends, and reduce unwanted frizz.

Moisture’s role in your hair routine is to lock-in hydration (this is necessary!) and keep a fluid barrier of protection surrounding each hair strand. This will help to restore the integrity of your inner hair shaft as well as the outward appearance of your hair luster.

What Does Protein Do To Hair Extensions?

what does protein do to hair extensions

Protein in hair care products can quickly and prematurely dehydrate hair extensions, resulting in dry, brittle, and unmanageable hair with a higher risk of breakage.

This occurs because of the chemical processing the extensions undergo before reaching you, which can strip away the hair's natural hydration barrier, the cuticle. To avoid this problem, switch to a protein-free hair care routine. This will help preserve the hair and provide essential nutrients daily to keep it healthy.

Does Protein Affect Hair Color?

Protein does affect your hair color in two ways. Your natural hair color is created through a direct source of protein (read more about the study here).

In addition to this protein may affect your chemically treated hair color if in fact you are overloading your hair with protein.

When we apply too much protein to our hair we are gradually reducing the protective barrier of hydration and moisture for what your hair needs to defend against heat and environmental factors that would cause hair color fading.

Which Ingredients Indicate That Protein Is In Your Hair Products?

  • Hydrolyzed wheat protein
  • Hydrolyzed keratin
  • Hydrolyzed silk protein
  • Hydrolyzed oat flour
  • Keratin
  • Hydrolyzed collagen
  • Hydrolyzed soy protein
