milk protein for hair

What is milk protein?

Milk Protein is one of the most nutrient rich proteins due to its complete amino acid content. It offers anti-irritant and protective properties unmatched by any other protein. You’ll notice increased manageability and body of the hair along with increased hydration and elasticity. Just like all the other proteins, milk protein carries restructuring and healing properties, but along with these benefits you will get them in an optimal balance serving as building blocks for improved utilization of hair care products.

How do I know if my hair needs protein?

There is a simple test to find out if your hair lacks protein. Wet your hair, grab about an inch of your hair between your fingers. Based on how your hair reacts to stretching, determines whether your hair needs moisture or protein. You hair needs moisture if it doesn’t stretch at all and breaks easily, or if it feels extremely rough and brittle. You hair needs protein if it stretches a long way and then breaks (or doesn’t break at all), or if it is limp and feels gummy. If your hair stretches just a little, then returns to its normal length without breaking, the amount of protein and moisture in your hair is well balanced.

How can milk protein benefit my hair?

If your hair is lacking body, moisture, resilience, shine, length, or gloss, milk proteins might just be what it is missing. There are two main types of protein in milk: casein and whey; both of which can benefit your hair. A diet low in protein may cause hair to thin or go into a dormant stage and stop growing. Healthy hair is a direct result of a healthy body; and a nutritious diet which includes milk proteins may result in thick, shiny hair.

Protein is considered one of the building blocks of hair since the hair itself is naturally made of protein. Lack of protein would normally cause thinning of hair or a disruption in the normal hair growth cycle. Another element of hair composition aside from protein is keratin. To be able to produce keratin, it is important that body has a sufficient calcium intake. Since calcium is widely present in milk, among the other benefits already discussed this nutrient would stimulate production of keratin and ultimately – hair growth process.

SUMMER solutions for your hair

Basics of summer hair repair – How to undo the damage of sun, salt water, chlorine and other summer hair hazards. Tips from Bella Vita & Z.One Concept Educator Jeffrey Perry.

The number one issue in the summer is pool water with too much chlorine, and the lake waters with algae and chemical buildup from our farm lands. So my first recommendation would be Deep Cleansing Shampoo after every swim, it is SLS free, cleansing the hair deeply but gently, maintaining the hair’s moisture balance. Follow with Active Milk Mask for restructuring dry and damaged hair or Active Yogurt Mask for conditioning natural and color treated hair. Then I recommend following with the delectable scent and detangling qualities of the Leave In Conditioner which also has Integrity 41 and vitamin E that protect from UV rays helping to maintain hair color.

Glistening Spray, a polishing spray for frizzy hair, gives shine, eliminates static electricity and improves manageability and helps to maintain the hair’s moisture balance and is essential for humid days!

When my clients are out in the blazing sun at a ball game or working in the yard, Milk_Shake Lifestyling products create a natural style and have UV filters that protect their hair color. 

There is also Sun & More’s four step program. All Over Shampoo for hair and body. Beauty Mask, a deep mask to be used after every shampoo. Pleasure Oil, an oil and emollient for hair and body. Restorer Milk nourishing and protective for all hair types, it softens and hydrates hair during and after sun exposure.

Enjoy your summer and Have Fun!

2. BROCCOLI, spinach and chard. Dark green leafy veggies are full of vitamins A and C. Your body uses these foods to produce sebum, the oily secretion on your scalp that works like conditioner. These veggies also pack iron and calcium. Trade your lettuce for spinach and sauté broccoli for a quick and healthy side.

3. MILK, yogurt and cheese. Dairy products are plentiful of calcium and protein. Choose low-fat or fat-free versions so your waistline and hair can both benefit. Mix it with fruit or granola for a healthy breakfast or afternoon snack.

4. EGGS are another food that’s rich in protein. Eggs are loaded with four key minerals: zinc, selenium, sulfur and iron. Iron is especially important because it helps cells carry oxygen to the hair follicles, and too little iron is a major cause of hair loss, particularly in woman.

5. POULTRY, this everyday entrée is extraordinary when it comes to protein, as well as hair healthy zinc, iron and B vitamins to keep strands strong and plentiful. Because hair is nearly all protein, foods rich in protein are giving you the building blocks for hair.
