Dry, Brittle hair is a sign of damage to the outer layer of the hair which then directly effects its ability to retain moisture. The ability to absorb and release moisture is called “Porosity.” The best, and perhaps the easiest way to mend damage to the outer layer is through protein, either in shampoo, conditioner, or treatments. Protein fills in the gaps, binds to damaged places, and mends the outer layer. Regular protein improves the hairs porosity by reinforcing the cuticle layers and allowing the hair to better retain moisture
