|WHEAT PROTEIN|| |
These are too large to be useful.
|ANIMAL PROTEIN|| |
These are also too large. However, they can coat the hair to make it feel silky.
|VEGETABLE PROTEIN||When hydrolyzed, this is the ideal protein to use!|
Coating the hair is great when you get a relaxer. It will help prevent overlap and I, personally, find my relaxer comes out softer, silkier and smoother!
Right after I wash out the relaxer, I apply a YOGURT mix. I haven't done much research on how yogurt works with the hair, but I get a lovely thickness with this technique. Afterwards, I PH balance the hair.
