I have some serious bad habit. I shampoo every day, I shower with hot water doesn’t matter it’s winter or summer, can’t stay in wet hair so blow dry every time I wet my hair and do apply hair color often. You can guess already how damage my hair is! I can not change my habit yet I do to take a bit of extra care to repair hair damaged. Everyone knows protein is staple for damaged hair, there is many different ways to do so. Thought I’ll share with you how I do my protein care for damage hair.
My process is not much critical but simple and easy.
You will need…
- An egg, of course, the source of protein, double it according to the length of your hair.
- A pack of Amla powder(from any brand is available to you),
- Hair oil of your preference (my recipe here), and
- Any treatment/repair cream of your choice.
Taking generous amount from each ingredient mix them all together and make a paste. The paste should be thin enough to apply easily in hair. Using a flat brush or your own hand apply the paste root to tip of your hair. Let it rest for 1/2 hour and then wash off with shampoo and follow with conditioner. You might need two or three wash to clear off the oil and Amla residue properly. You can also use sour curd after one wash and let that rest for five minutes while doing some other shower course and then wash off again. Sour curd(read my another post about sour curd) will treat your hair more finely.
Why I use the mix of all these ingredient?
Well, surely I can use only egg or only Amla paste. But you know Egg has quite a strong bad odor which always remains no matter how many time you wash your hair if you use that alone. Amla powder condition hair nicely but its hard to clean afterward as well as Amla powder has strong stain power and I don’t want to ruin my hair color. When I mix oil with Amla powder it becomes easy to clean and because of oil Amla stain can’t really touch hair color. The reason behind using treatment/repair cream, I would say it’s more like my own psychology, I like the fragrance that those cream has and this fragrance dominate that bad odor comes from the egg. Additionally, I feel treatment/repair cream adds a bit extra nourishment.
I use this protein pack once in every other week and literally can feel that added life in my hair afterward.
I believe this process of Protein Care For Damage Hair might hep your hair aswel.
I would love to know what you do to treat your hair. Do let me know your thought is comment box :)
