Do your curls need more protein or more moisture?

Do your curls need more protein or more moisture?

Those beautiful, bouncy curls you have been swooning over on Instagram and pinning on Pinterest likely all have one thing in common: they are balanced! This means they have both enough protein AND enough moisture. 

However, this is much easier said than done! To get those beautiful, bouncy and balanced curls you have been dreaming of, ask yourself these questions:

1. How does your hair dry?

If your hair dries curly or wavy, but shortly after falls flat and loses a lot of definition - you probably need more protein! To lock in that definition, reach for a lightweight styling product that packs a punch of protein!

2. Do you often suffer from frizzy curls or waves? 

While frizz can be caused by 101+ things, your curls are likely begging for some additional moisture! Look for a gel that gives your curls both the moisture and hold they need to combat frizz all day long!

3. Do a few pieces refuse to curl?

If your entire head of hair is curly except for one or two pieces, those stragglers are probably crying out for a protein boost! Try adding in a protein deep conditioner (to those specific pieces, or your whole head!) your next wash day.
