Protein vs. Moisture

When looking at the Retail shelf in the salon it can be daunting.  There are 3 shelves of products that cover every single hair need. So how do you know what product is best for your hair?  First it is always best to consult with your stylist. Your stylist is the one person that knows your hair best and knows the Chemical history.

Moisture:

    2. replenishes & maintains essential moisture balance
    3. increases manageability, suppleness and shine.
  2. All Soft Mega

Protein:

There are 5 ways to tell if your hair is lacking protein. Your Hair Has High Porosity, Lost Its Elasticity, Stringy Or Limp, feels Gummy Or Sticky or it is breaking off.

  1. Extreme

  • Redken’s Extreme hair care line has a few different protein treatments that are made of a plant based protein.  Plant based protein cannot be over used unlike a keratin based protein which too much can have an adverse effect of damaging the hair and breaking it off.
    • Mega mask: deep treatment & care extender apply for 5-10 minutes then rinse.
    • CAT: protein reconstructing treatment. Use 1-3x per week.  Apply post shampoo for 3-5 minutes follow with a conditioner
    • Anti- snap & Length sealer: apply to towel dried ends to protect ends from splitting

If you are unsure which product is best for your hair issues, please consult with your stylist.  Adding a chemistry treatment to your normal 4-6 week appointment will help to boost moisture and/or protein.  Chemistry shots is a 2 step service which provides intense results through highly concentrated ingredients that are formulated to suit your own specific hair needs.
