Demystifying Protein/Moisture Balance For Healthier Hair
When it comes to Protein-Moisture Balance let’s face it… It can be a little confusing. But it’s a necessary part of creating a healthy hair regimen that allows hair to thrive and grow with minimal breakage. This video is a perfect visualization of the Protein/Moisture concept. Protein and moisture have an interdependent relationship.
A proper Protein and moisture have an interdependent relationship. A proper moisture-protein balance is important for the overall quality of your hair. One without the other leads to breakage. Protein deficient hair equals breakage and moisture deficient hair leads to breakage.
Conversely, too much of one or the other also leads to breakage (hair is imbalanced). Deep conditioning with a moisturizing deep conditioner weekly and protein deep conditioner biweekly or monthly can help you maintain balance. Balanced hair is healthy hair.
Author of The Science of Black Hair, Audrey Davis-Sivaothy describes the importance of moisture protein balance with her pasta analogy. See video below. For more clarification, I recommend reading her book, The Science of Black Hair and/or reading the following post.
