I recieve a lot of questions regarding protein and moisture balance for natural hair. To be honest, I have never been a fan of protein treatments because I feel they aren't needed for my curls. During the beginning of my natural hair journey my hair was very dry. My primary focus was increasing the moisture levels in my hair so that it would be soft. From my experience, I have learned that protein and silk amino acids treatments are great for our hair, but they are best used when you experience dry, damaged tresses. If you feel that you may need a protein or silk amino acid treatment, I suggest researching the treatments or contacting your stylist. Here are a few methods that work for me.
