Healthy Hair must have a consistent balance of Protein, Oil and Moisture.   Protein is the main way to strengthen, repair and restore damage that may occur in the hair.  A Protein treatment is not a deep conditioning treatment.  Protein Conditioners come in liquid and cream forms.  Our favorite At-Home Protein recommendations are Joico K-Pak Conditioner and Moroccan Oil Restorative Hair Mask.  Leave on the Protein treatment for 20 to 45 minutes for optimum results.  After rinsing the treatment out use a Moisturizing Conditioner to balance the hairs’ PH level and soften the hair.
