So, I finally did a protein treatment last weekend and I opted for a natural, DIY at home one which I found on Pinterest. It amazes me the world of things you can find on Pinterest, I’ve pinned a gazillion pins to my natural hair board by now. Funny enough my board name is “Bye-Bye Creamy Crack” and we’re 13 months on a fully natural ‘fro.
Why did I need a protein treatment?
- Sadly, parts of my hair lost its elasticity aka the curls weren’t holding. Whether it was wet or dry when I pulled the strand it wouldn’t bounce back.
- Hair was also LIMP AF. It just didn’t have its body anymore
- Needed added moisture
- Recovering from heat damage
- Protein = strength and length, which are my ultimate goals
