Rather than having big protein treatments every so often I choose to use a protein based conditioner more regularly. My current favourite is this!
If you have relaxed/ damaged/ colour treated hair then it may be better to use protein more often or to use a stronger type. Since my hair is natural, not coloured treated and mostly healthy this works perfectly for me!
This conditioner smells great and is super creamy. The only down side is that it doesn't have a whole lot of slip, making detangling with it on my hair hard. Despite that I do love it, and thank god considering I have a huge salon size amount of it.
I use it after shampooing and before deep conditioning to give my hair a protein hit. I use it probably every other wash and think it's a great way to improve the strength of my hair, especially if I'm going to use heat on it.
How do you incorporate protein into your routine?
