Signs That You Need Protein Treatment.

If you have any of these signs, try a protein treatment and follow a regular protein regimen right away:

1. Loss of elasticity

Hair in good condition can stretch under normal conditions without breaking. If you’re wondering about the elasticity in your hair, try this test: stretch wet hair and see if it easily snaps back without breaking. If it does, your hair is in good shape. If you stretch it and it breaks easily, you need to increase the protein in your hair.

2. Serious damage

When hair has been overprocessed with chemicals, it can feel and look like seaweed when it’s wet. When dry, it may feel like a rough Brillo pad. This isn’t regular dryness that black hair is prone to. Although black hair may not feel exactly like silk, healthy hair is still soft to the touch.

3. Severe breakage

This isn’t the average hair shedding that everyone experiences on a daily basis. Regular shedding often comes out in a comb or brush. When your hair breaks due to weakness, you’ll find strands of it everywhere; on your pillow, on the back of your seat, on your shirt, on the bathroom floor. It may make a snapping or popping sound when you comb it.
