Hi guys welcome back to today’s blog, this blog is in conjunction with my other blog titled “DIY PROTEIN TREATMENT” so make sure to check that out. I have decided to write a blog about Protein treatments after receiving excellent response to my coconut oil post. So sit back and enjoy this post. If you have any questions make sure you leave a comment or email me (information provided below)
So let’s get started!

What is protein?

Your hair is mostly made up of a protein called Keratin. Proteins are amino acids that account for about 20% of your body’s weight in muscles, skin, bones and hair.  One thing to note is that Protein treatments should not be confused with making your hair grow. A diet rich in protein is the only way to nourish hair strands with protein from within. To grow new hair, your body must produce more amino acids to make more protein. Consuming the right amounts of protein in your daily diet will give your body what it needs to stimulate new hair growth. However, protein treatments are helpful in protecting and strengthening hair from the outside and giving the hair a more healthy appearance. Protein treatments can be used to strengthen and repair damaged or dry hair. There are many protein treatments available on the market, including my favorite one “Organics hair Mayonnaise”. However, if you prefer, you can make your own protein treatments at home – I do this most of the time, Click here to view my DIY PROTEIN TREATMENT. -Please note there are other ways of making your own treatment, but this treatment is tailored to my needs.

What will I benefit from a Protein Treatment for my hair?

If you have problems with your hair, such as hair breakage, hair loss, and any other hair problems, you may consider this method for improving your hair health. This method can be done easily without spending too much money for your healthy hair.
Below are a number of benefits provided by a protein treatment (please note this is not an exhaustive list):

Strengthen your hair and treat dry hair

You can use this nutrient for improving your hair strength as it forms the main part of the hair; It is a good ingredient that can prevent and reduce your hair loss and breakage problems.  Dry hair is something that a lot of afro hair suffers from as our curly hairs are very kinky. Dry hair can also trigger some hair fall problems. This ingredient can help your hair produce hair oil that is very useful to moisturize your own hair. As the result, you may be able to reduce your hair problems.  As a result of strengthening your hair, you’re more able to retain growth and less prone to breakage

Reduce some scalp problems

Protein can also be used to improve your scalp health. If you do not have healthy scalp, you may not be able to get healthy hair growing on your head. There are several scalp problems that can be solved by using this protein, such as dry scalp and irritated scalp. These problems should be treated well if you want to improve your hair health – be careful when applying external protein to your hair, test before use for allergies.

How do I know when it’s time for a protein treatment?

For me I learned to know when it is time by observing my hair; I would recommend a protein treatment if:
  • Your hair rough despite using conditioner and even shampoo
  • After trying other treatments and the hair still looks dull
  • If the hair lacks body or it is very thin (Only if this is not normal for my hair)
  • If I have applied a lot of heat to me hair when wearing a certain hairstyle, I apply protein treatment straight after.

Is protein not bad for your hair?

Too much of any good thing can be bad. Overuse of protein treatments can leave your hair feeling stiff. The key is to make sure you are balancing use of protein treatments with depositing moisture into the hair. Try a hot oil treatment and deep conditioning your hair between protein treatments.

Few Benefits of Mayonnaise Hair Treatment: 


Moisturizes hair:

Mayonnaise contains oils which help nourish and moisturize your hair from deep within. It is considered very useful for dry and damaged hair.

Protects from harmful styling products:

Mayonnaise treatments also help protect your hair from all the harmful effects of styling products. These products tend to dry our hair out. Mayonnaise helps replenish and repair damage- This is the reason why I do a mayonnaise treatment immediately after I have doing a hairstyle that involves a lot of styling or heat.

Helps stop breakage:

The protein found in mayonnaise helps fill the gap and clings on to the hair strands really well. This makes your hair look fuller and gives it an excellent shine.


Make sure you read the directions and product label to see the suggested usage and claims of the treatment. You should use treatments as directed in the instructions or consult a stylist in your area if you are not sure which type of treatment is best for you.
