Every hairdresser knows it... the struggle to get damaged hair healthy again.
Several ingredients have been shown to improve hair health, including silk.
But what makes silk so special? And what makes it an essential ingredient in hair care products?
First, it is important to explain that we use hydrolyzed silk protein. When silk protein is extracted, it is in a casing that cannot be made into liquid products. Hydrolysis simply means that this shell is removed to make it usable.
But how does hydrolyzed silk protein improve hair health?
The most important element of hair is the protein (protein) keratin, a protein that gives hair strength, protection and structure.
When hair is regularly exposed to chemical treatments and heat, this keratin breaks down and the hair becomes weak, loses elasticity and is more prone to breakage.
And this is where hydrolyzed silk protein can help!
Fast Facts: Silk Protein
What Are The Remarkable Benefits Of Hydrolyzed Silk Protein?
When the protein (keratin) of the hair breaks down and the hair becomes weak, less elastic and brittle, you need to add more protein to balance it and keep it strong, protected and textured.
Hydrolyzed Silk Protein contains cysteine, which is exactly what is needed to produce new keratin and strengthen hair.
Hydrolyzed silk protein has the property of providing the hair with new keratin proteins and thus strengthening weakened hair. This silk penetrates the hair, moisturizing and strengthening the hair from the inside. Silk protein is the strongest natural fiber known. When the protein penetrates the hair, it creates a protective barrier around each individual hair that protects the hair from further damage.
In short, protein is necessary for hair health…
… and so is silk protein!
