To determine whether your hair needs protein, moisture, or both (or none), try this simple test:
Get a wet hair. Pull on it steadily. (Wrap both ends around the index fingers of both hands to make sure it doesn't slip off)
* If the hair stretches, but shrinks when you let go: your hair has enough protein
* If the hair stretches a lot, and does not shrink back, it lacks protein.
* If it breaks, it needs moisture.
* If it seems to stretch and break, then try both protein and moisture treatments.
