There is a perfect balance our hair needs between moisture and protein. It is often hard to determine just how to achieve that perfect balance and the best way to maintain it is to listen to our hair. If your hair is limp, mushy and overly moist it needs protein, and if it dry, hard, and easily breaking then it most likely needs more moisture. When it becomes apparent that protein is needed, a protein conditioner is the best way to do it.
So which ones to try? It is a preference so if you are in need of one then check out this list of hugely popular protein conditioners that get the job done. What is ever better is that all are very gentle to your strands even if you choose to use them monthly or bi-weekly.
