In fact i didn’t even know you could have too much of one, but you can! It does take really understanding your hair to know but i promise you, at some point you will.
How do you know if your hair is over moisturised or is overloaded with protein?
The wet strand hair test!
Yes guys you’ll have to pull out a strand or 2 of hair for this one (gasps!)
Take 1 or 2 strands from the root, wet them lightly and check for the following. Pull each strand lightly from both ends.
1) if your hair continues to stretch like a rubber band and then eventually breaks…you need protein, your hair is over moisturised.
2) the same applies if you contunue to stretch your hair and it doesn’t break- over moisturised.
3) If your strand/s do not stretch and break at soon as you pull it/them, then you need moisture. Your hair is dry and brittle hence why it breaks so readily
4) the same applies if your hair is hard,rough and dry. You need moisture.
I can now very easily tell how my hair feels. Most often my hair is under moisturised hence why i only do protein dc’s once a month.
You may be even more baffled afer reading this but both issues produce 2 completely different hair textures. Overly moisturised hair is usually quite soft, stretchy and mushy whereas hair that has undergone too many protein treatments is usually rough, dry looking and very coarse and hard.”
