Protein Moisture Balance for Natural Hair [Infographic]
While discussing the benefits of deep conditioning earlier this week, I mentioned protein moisture balance as being important for natural hair care.
Have you had the battle of deep conditioners before? You cannot decide whether your next purchase will be a fortifying (protein) deep conditioner or a hydrating (moisture) deep conditioner… If you’ve had that fight before, I’m here to tell you that you need both, but you do not necessarily need to buy them… A lot of it is in your kitchen already.

I hope that this infographic can help break it down further so it’s even easier for us regular naturalistas.
