Aids in moisture retention due to its strong hygroscopic properties (silk is credited with the ability to retain 10,000 times its weight in water), resulting in optimum conditioning and increased strength.
Provides superior conditioning properties, making it ideal for natural-type conditioners, shampoos, and hair repairing systems. Links hair fibers to improve elasticity, resiliency, and restore the moisture balance.
Properties & Benefits
When added to hair care products, Hydrolyzed Silk helps improve the elasticity of hair strands and adds luster and manageability to the hair.
Hydrolyzed Silk Protein fills in the gaps in the cuticle, giving more silkiness to your hair than any other hydrolyzed protein.
Its outstanding moisture-binding capacities help increase the hair’s ability to retain water, improving its elasticity.
When added to hair shampoos, it can reduce the irritating potential of harsh surfactants.
Hydrolyzed Silk Protein can be added to a hair shampoo or conditioner in concentrations up to 5% of the total volume to increase the conditioning and softening properties of these products. Make sure that your shampoo or conditioner is rich in moisturizing ingredients to help keep the moisture/protein balance in your hair.
You can add Hydrolyzed Silk to your deep conditioner and apply it as a protein treatment every few weeks.
