Find the Perfect Protein Shampoo for Your Hair Needs

Should you be using a shampoo with protein? Now's the time to find out...

A protein shampoo is a type of shampoo product that contains protein in it. And, it is designed to gently cleanse and strengthen damaged hair, by helping restore its lost proteins.

Your hair is made up of 90% protein, and anything from excessive heat use to colouring can weaken the protein bonds within your strands. This can eventually result in you having to deal with dry and damaged hair.  But, there’s no need to fret: a shampoo with protein is all you need to improve your mane game.

So, If you’re experiencing dryness, frizz and breakage, consult with our edit on the best protein shampoos and get ready for better hair days.
