Power of Protein
For centuries we have molded, bent, burned, coloured, straightened, textured and permed hair into all shapes, colours and styles. In Ancient Egypt, exotic proteins were extracted from placenta, eggs, milk and all sorts of flowers and plants. Cleopatra was known for her passion for beauty.
Since that time, the beauty industry has been constantly searching for better and more powerful proteins that are more effective for restoring damaged hair. Because the moisture balance of hair is so delicate, we have found that "NOT ALL PROTEINS ARE CREATED EQUAL". This was the first lesson that I learned in my quest to create the perfect product.
I found that the size of the protein molecule determines how effectively it will protect hair and repair damage within the hair shaft. The quality of the protein, therefore, determines how much moisture each protein molecule can retain and repair.
Fact: Some proteins can build up on the hair shaft which could cause hair to become brittle and damaged.
After almost ten years of protein research in our salon, we were able to prove that Silk Proteins were the most effective. They blend so easily with hair and never cause build-up.
Silk Amino Acids (protein)
Natural silk is the strongest natural fibre known to mankind. Discovered in Japan, it has been used for centuries in all kinds of products that require durability. Silk has a tiny molecule that can penetrate the entire hair shaft deeper than any other protein, without adding any weight and leaving the hair feeling clean and non-greasy.
