Protein Hair Treatment - Benefits and How-To

The world of hair care has been occupied with “hair treatments” for quite some time now. You’re talking to your friends about your hair troubles and what you get in answer is to get a keratin treatment, or a smoothing treatment, or a hair Botox, or Brazilian blowout. For a newbie who just defined a new hair care manifesto for unruly hair, this information is a lot to handle. What’s with all the terms? What do they even mean? There are countless treatments in the market, each with its own specialties. Which one to pick?

Relax! We’re gonna make it all simple for you, starting from a protein treatment.



What is a Protein Treatment? 

Hair Protein treatment, which also goes by the name of keratin treatment, smoothing treatment, Brazilian blowout, and many others, is a treatment formulated to maintain your hair health. This treatment is infused with keratin, a type of protein that makes up 95% of our hair. When several factors such as heat exposure, overwashing, sun exposure, chemical treatments, and others affect your hair health, the keratin from the hair shaft escapes, leaving it dry, brittle, and damaged. A Keratin Protein treatment makes up for the lost keratin in your hair, and seals cuticle gaps by filling in, which makes your hair healthier, stronger, and more manageable.


Benefits of Hair Protein Treatment


Benefits of a Protein Treatment

A Hair Protein treatment maintains your hair health and keeps it smooth and manageable for up to five months, or longer if you properly take care of it. Let’s see how a protein treatment can benefit your hair: 

Knocks-Out Frizz

Did you know half of your hair problems, including frizz, originate from dryness? A Keratin Protein treatment contains anti-static agents and nourishing ingredients which deliver extra hydration and moisture to your hair, and keep dryness and frizz at bay. Since your hair is properly hydrated, it doesn’t feel the need to suck moisture from the air and stay in place, looking more manageable and smooth. 

Repairs the Damage

Let’s be honest; damaged hair looks terrible. Those frayed split-ends or breakage in the middle of the hair shaft isn’t a sight for sore eyes. Since the main reason for the damage is the loss of keratin protein, a protein treatment helps in rebuilding the hair shaft and restores the lost keratin. It fills in the cuticle gaps and seals damaged cuticles which allow hair to stay and appear healthy for a longer period.

Smooths Out Tangles 

Some hair types have the hobby of getting tangled for absolutely no reason. No matter how many times you comb your hair, one minute your brush is down and it’s all knotty again. Since a Hair Protein treatment contains smoothing agents, it helps your hair stay more hydrated and smooth, which results in fewer tangles and manageable hair. 

Straightens the Hair

If you’re all about embracing your natural curls, we join hands with you. But since curly hair is high-maintenance, many people just don’t find the time and energy to deal with it in their hassles of everyday life. A protein treatment is suitable for such people, since it loosens the curl pattern and makes it sleek and straight for several months. 

There are many Keratin Protein treatments in the market, so make sure you pick the one which is formaldehyde-free and contains natural ingredients, like GK Hair The Best Treatment. This treatment is infused with Juvexin, an advanced keratin blend, and Natural Seed Extracts, which help in rejuvenating your hair and restore its natural youthfulness. Unlike other professional treatments, The Best Treatment is user-friendly, and offers the facility of a Protein treatment for hair at home.



How To Use A Protein Treatment At-Home



Below are the guidelines for step-by-step application for our end-users who’d prefer to do a Keratin Protein Treatment themselves::


  1. Wash your hair with GK Hair pH+ Shampoo, leave it on for 2-3 minutes, rinse, and then repeat. This will open up your hair cuticles and cleanse off all the buildup and sebum.  
  2. Section your hair into thin parts of ½ inch starting at the nape of your neck and apply The Best Treatment ¼ inch away from the roots. 
  3. After you’re done with the application, comb through hair to evenly spread the product. 
  4. Let the treatment process go for 40-60 minutes. If your hair is fine or wavy, leave on the product for 40 minutes. If your hair is curly, coarse, and thick, let it sit for 60 minutes. 
  5. Rinse out all the product with warm water. To make sure no product is left onto hair, wash it until the water runs clear. 
  6. Once the product is washed out, blow-dry your hair straight with enough tension on high-temperature.
  7. Make sure the hair is 100% dry before moving to the next process.
  8. Section the hair and flat iron at 400°F to seal the cuticles.

The bottom line? Your hair needs protein as much as it needs other emollients and nourishing agents. So buy yourself a Hair Protein treatment and revive your dull, damaged hair!
