What is keratin?
Keratin is a protein that makes up most of the skin, hair and nails. Hair especially is rich in keratin-associated proteins and acts as an external protective protein in the cuticle (the outer layers) and the internal structural protein in the cortex (the inner core of the hair which determines its strength). Your hair has natural keratin but often when exposed to physical, environmental and chemical damage, the hair’s keratin becomes depleted. Keratin loss exposes the hair’s cortex which puts it at risk of even more damage. Replenishing keratin in the hair restores strength and elastic smoothing of the hair’s surface and giving it a healthier appearance. #education #keratintreatment #keratin #hair #instahair #hairsalon #salon #salonlife #carolinesprings #stylebubble #melbourne
