Does your hair feel gummy, dry, and rough? If so, you are in need of a protein treatment. This kind of treatment helps to repair damaged hair by filling in gaps in your hair cuticle. Aside from making your strands stronger and smoother, it can also prevent further hair breakage.

In general, you need to start with a weekly protein treatment in order to restore the strength and elasticity of your hair. From there, you can use this treatment on a monthly basis. Just make sure you don’t over-do your protein treatment. If you do so, it can be counter-intuitive and make your strands prone to damage.

Olaplex has developed its own category of hair care products that rebuild weak, damaged, and broken hair. Feel free to browse the selection of hair treatments to use for your different hair concerns.
