Does Your Hair Need More Protein Or Moisture?

This elasticity / strand test will determine whether your hair needs moisture or protein.

1. Grab one strand of hair and stretch it

2. If it stretches before snapping then it's well balanced

3. If you pull your hair and it snaps immediately, you need more moisture

4. If it stretches and stretches (like mine in the video) and doesn't bounce back, it needs more protein

If you need protein, use our Feed Treatment.

If you need moisture, treat yourself to our Deep Conditioning Mask. It's also worth removing the Feed Treatment from your next wash day.

If your hair is balanced, use steps 1-5 within our Wavy Hair Kit as normal.

It's important to note that your hair moisture/protein balance will change all the time. A bi-weekly test is therefore recommended.
