Hair Keratin and How You Can Restore Damaged Hair

by Anjelina Tongco

No one wants to go out with their hair looking like a hot mess or like a bird’s nest. Thanks, to all the shampoo commercials we see on TV and in magazines, it has become everyone’s dream to have hair that looks healthy, shiny, and gorgeous. Seeing your hair dull and lifeless can send you on a rather intensive journey of looking for new hair care products to try and buy. 

Before you go any further and deeper into your research, though, have you considered looking into hair keratin? This is an area/topic that’s often overlooked as we tend to focus on things like hair strength, scalp health, and the like (which are all quite important as well, by the way). 

Hair keratin is basically the same type of protein that’s found in your skin and your nails. Sometimes, keratin in your hair gets depleted or stripped down from using harsh chemicals found in various hair care products. 

Thankfully, it’s not too late to get your hair back to its previous keratin-rich glory. Aside from taking keratin-boosting supplements orally, you can also go for a keratin treatment (read more about it here) at the salon. Doing this will help nourish your hair and repair any damage left by heat, chemicals, and pollution. 

Now, you might be thinking, “well, what if there’s no one that does/offers a keratin treatment near me?” You could do one simple thing and that is to switch up the products from your usual hair care routine to ones that restore keratin to the hair. 

Here are some of our favorite products to boost hair keratin production at home:
