What is Keratin Deficiency?

What is Keratin Deficiency?

The underlying cause for weak, fragile hair and color fading is frequently due to keratin deficiency.  Fix it today with professional quality products! 

Keratin Deficiency

Keratin deficiency is the condition of hair strands that lack the type of protein that makes up the basis for hair. Keratin is one of a family of structural fibrous proteins also known as scleroproteins. It ensures the structure of our hair is strong and shiny. Keratin can be found throughout the entire body: within organs, fingernails, skin, and as a significant component in hair health.  When hair has low keratin levels, it frequently—

  1. Breaks more easily
  2. Lacks shine
  3. has split ends
  4. It can be brittle, thin, and frizzy.
  5. Has difficulty holding the color 
  6. Is unmanageable

These symptoms are only a handful of examples, and keratin deficiency can have many other negative side effects within the hair and the rest of the body. 

Why is Keratin Important? 

Keratin makes up 80-90% of the hair’s structure. Anyone with smooth, gorgeous, shiny hair has enough keratin to support their healthy strands. As a result, Keratin has been an invaluable strengthening and conditioning ingredient in hair products for generations. The best hair products have keratin-building ingredients to strengthen your hair while also being visually enhanced and moisturized. 

Surprisingly, keratin can begin to deplete as early as our teens. From here, our bodies' keratin levels continue to decrease as we age. Our hair also takes on a load of stress over the years from the sun's UV rays, treatments, or hot tools, further damaging the strong building blocks of our hair. 

Keratin deficiency is real, affects everyone, and creates a need for keratin replenishment. 

What is Keratin Replenishment?

Keratin replenishment replaces keratin in areas of the hair that have been compromised, neglected, damaged, or aged.  The process of keratin replenishment can last for days, weeks, or months depending on the brand and type of product used. Some hair may need a longer time for a full recovery. Keratin replenishment is necessary to achieve long-lasting color, condition, strength, and manageability. 

Achieving and maintaining all things “good” with your hair depends on healthy hair.

  1. Strength
  2. Condition
  3. Elasticity
  4. Moisture balance
  5. Ability to hold color
  6. Style
  7. Protection from the elements
  8. And so much more…

To achieve these results, your hair MUST be healthy, and for it to be healthy, you NEED healthy keratin levels.
