3 Ways To Do Protein Treatment For Hair Perfectly

If your hair feels dull, dry, rough and lifeless, what it needs is a protein shake. Protein therapy gives your hair the necessary nutrients that help it bounce back with health and shine.

We’ve all gone through a phase when our hair seems so lacklustre. Dull, dry, lifeless strands are heart-breaking. The reasons could be many, but the main culprits are the environment, pollution, bad hair care and insufficient nutrition.

What your hair needs is a shot of protein. Protein treatment nourishes your hair with nutrients that help it recover and renew itself.

Many people also talk about getting protein hair treatment because they are planning to colour or lighten or expose their hair to some other chemicals. I say it’s a must. When you strengthen your hair, you minimise any damage that could be caused by the cosmetic treatment that you are planning.

Many salons offer protein treatment for hair but those can be expensive, and you really don’t know what goes into it. Try some of these home remedies instead.

3 Ways To Do Protein Hair Treatment At Home:

#1 Banana, Honey And Coconut Oil Mask:

Everything natural and yummy goes into this delicious protein treatment for hair.

How To Prepare Hair Mask:

  1. Start by mashing up 3 overripe bananas, or chop and drop them in a powerful blender.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of raw honey and 1 tablespoon coconut oil into the blender.
  3. Blend it for 15-20 seconds or until it forms a thick, creamy paste.
  4. Add a little water if it’s too thick.

How To Apply:

  • Separate your hair in sections and begin applying the mask from root to the tips.
  • Massage a few dollops into your scalp as well.
  • Cover your head with a shower cap and put your feet up for about 30 minutes.
  • Rinse the mask out with warm water.
  • Wash as usual with your shampoo and conditioner. I find that Pantene Pro-V Total Damage Care really helps nourish my tresses.
  • Don’t forget to condition.
  • Let it air dry. No hair dryer please.

#2 Avocado And Mayonnaise Protein Hair Mask:

I usually don’t eat an avocado. Whenever I spot one in the market, though, I get it home and look for ways to use it for my skin or hair.


  1. Place a peeled and pitted ripe avocado in a bowl and mash it until it is smooth and creamy.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise and mix it until it forms a smooth paste.
  3. Coat your hair with this mask from root to tip and massage it slightly.
  4. You can also use a wide-toothed comb to make sure it is spread evenly.
  5. Cover your hair with a shower cap for half hour.
  6. Rinse out thoroughly with warm water.
  7. Wash as usual with your shampoo.
  8. Don’t forget to condition.
