Hair protein treatments are one of the best things you could do to your hair! Your hair is made up of keratin protein and when you talk about hair damage, you actually refer to the keratin layer being damaged. There are a lot of protein boosting treatments and protein hair products that you can buy or get done at salons but you have to pay a good amount for that. There are a lot of natural ingredients that can give your hair the exact same amount of nourishment (or maybe more!) you expect from commercial products with added benefits! Below is a recipe for an overnight protein hair mask using coconut milk:
Coconut milk- Coconut milk deeply conditions hair, reduces frizz, adds lustre, fights hair loss and also adds a healthy shine to your hair. It also reduces frizz completely and makes hair more manageable.
Greek yogurt- Greek yogurt contains essential enzymes that nourishes hair and keep them healthy. It also balances scalp pH and strengthens follicles. It softens hair and makes them manageable and beautiful.
Olive oil- Olive oil moisturizes scalp and hair and helps keep dryness at bay. It coats your hair and protects it from harmful sunrays and environmental hair damaging factors. Olive oil adds a healthy shine to your hair. READ MORE – OVERNIGHT CHARCOAL SKIN PURIFYING GEL
