Vergelijking proteïnes in masker of in styling gel

Mask with protein vs Gel with protein

 I'm always curious about the effects of different products and techniques on my curls, so I can't resist continuing to test and compare. Today was another one of those days...

FINAL WASH TO RESET YOUR CURLS

First of all, I started with a final wash with the Jumbo Elke Dag Shampoo.

TIP: It is really advisable to do this a few times a year to properly reset your hair.

Why? Because I had my hair treated with bleach last week to freshen up my curls, and it had been years since I had done a final wash.

I applied the final wash shampoo all over my hair, not just the scalp.

HAIR MASK WITH AND WITHOUT PROTEIN

I then applied a hair mask, from another brand, with large proteins to the right side (left for me but photo right) of my hair and used the All-in-One Treatment on the left side .

Rinse out the mask and treatment after five minutes.

Then applied the All-in-One Styling Cream in my soaking wet hair in the shower (1 pump).

I applied the squish to condish method by briefly holding my hair under the shower head three times and scrunching in between.

With this method you ensure that you can properly squeeze moisture and nutrition into your curls and it will also be better distributed. It is important that you still leave product in your curls, you will feel this because it still feels nice and smooth.

This photo shows how the curls look soaking wet, you can already see more curl on the left side..

 

STYLING GEL WITH AND WITHOUT PROTEIN

Then applied our Styling Gel to the right side of soaking wet hair, without protein because that side had already had a mask with protein.

On the left side the Styling Gel with our protein drops is used to restore the balance so that both sides contain protein.

Then squeeze out excess water with the hydrophilic towel and dry with the diffuser.

 

What and how much was used:

Final wash: a handful

Mask from Brand

All-in-One Treatment: 2 pumps

All-in-One Styling Cream: 1 pump

Styling Gel: 2 pumps

Protein Drops: 5 drops

 

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MASK WITH PROTEIN vs. GEL WITH PROTEIN

Left: more definition and shine 

Right: less definition and less shine

CONCLUSION: For me it works better to add the drops to the gel.

It may of course also be that the proteins in the mask from brand X do not do enough for my curls, but the fact is that I am happier with the result with the protein drops.

And hey, I walk around with 2 different outcomes,,, but personally this is really the best method to find out how your curls react to different products / techniques, etc.

I hope this has given you inspiration to test products in this way.
