Adding honey helps to balance out the mask by incorporating a moisture promoting ingredient. This would, hopefully, help you avoid the unintended result of “protein hair” that feels stiff and unmanageable.
I’m going to experiment with this mask. But since my hair isn’t really that damaged at the moment, I may tweak it a little. I’ll start by spreading out the frequency of how often I do this. If your hair isn’t breaking/shedding excessively, there’s no need to make this a weekly thing. Once a month or every 6 weeks might be more reasonable.
Secondly, we need to include a little diversity in the types of protein we use in our regimen. Egg-derived protein stays mainly on top of the strand due to its particle size. That’s not a bad thing because protein on the exterior of the strand does serve its purpose. But we should also remember to include hydrolyzed protein into our deep conditioning routines. Hydrolyzed protein delivers small enough particles so that the interior of our strands is benefited. The best approach is to experiment with incorporating both types of proteins and see how your hair responds.
Have any of you tried this mask yet? What’s your final verdict?
