Hair protein – A pretty cool concept if you think about it. Our hair needs protein to strengthen and grow, so applying some to your stands seems like a great idea.
I was not aware that hair protein creams existed, so it was a bit of a surprise to discover them. So, through curiosity, I thought I’d give the Himalaya Protein Hair Cream a go, because it’s affordable and easily purchasable on Amazon.
I’ve managed to keep on top of my hair loss issues with my own treatment plan, but I’m always up for adding new products to my plan, especially if there is no risk involved.
Himalaya Protein Hair Cream is ‘a natural hair cream full of the goodness of protein‘. It is enriched with natural proteins that provide necessary nourishment to the root and the shaft of the hair, thereby protecting it from potential damages.
It contains 100% herbal actives including chickpea and amla, which are meant to nourish the hair, keep it healthy, and promote its growth. The specially formulated cream also comes with natural ingredients that leave your hair soft and shiny.
Active Ingredients: Amalaki (Emblica Officinalis) Fr. 6 mg., Chanaka (Cicer Arietinum) Sd. 6 mg., Godhuma (Triticum Sativum), Wheat Gem 4 mg., Bhringaraja (Eclipta Prostrata) Wh. Pl. 4 mg.
Inactive Ingredients: Methylparaben IP, Propylparaben IP.
How To Use
Apply sufficient amount of the cream from the root to the tip of your hair. Massage the scalp gently by using your fingers and spread the cream evenly. For better results, use it daily before or after hair wash.
Does it work?
If you’re hoping this product will help prevent hair loss due to common alopecia conditions like pattern baldness, then you’ll likely be very disappointed.
This cream is not a treatment or cure for hair loss, but rather a hair strengthener. If you suffer from thinning hair like me, then this cream can be very beneficial for your hair. It will help reduce the risk of strand damage and breakage.
Will I continue to use this?
Although this isn’t a bad product, I don’t think it’s likely that I’ll be using it in the future. Although it’s a dry textured cream, it did leave my hair feeling a bit greasy at times, which is a big negative.
However, for what it does, and for the price you can get it for (around £5 a pot), I would definitely recommend you try it. This would be ideal for those of you who have naturally thin hair.
