Keratin – Miraculous Care from the Inside Out

Some, but not all people are blessed with a full head of healthy hair. We want to help if you wish for stronger, healthier hair. Your best ally in achieving healthy manageable hair is the hair building block keratin. Stay tuned to pick up some essentials on keratin and its miraculous effects in hair care

90 % of every hair consists of keratin and (dependent on the moisture in the environment) 5 – 10 % are water; minor hair constituents are lipids (fat), pigments, and minerals. Keratin is a fibrous protein, which gives strength and elasticity to the inner and outer hair structure. The keratin protein consists of long peptide chains, which form strong filaments. The composition of the peptide chains determines the structure of individual filaments. Hair filaments may turn around their long axis, bend or even fold. 

Intact keratin is not only elastic but also insoluble in water. Keratin is able to tolerate extreme temperatures both on the high and low side. Thanks to keratin, hair is built to withstand (or at least tolerate for a while) the hot rays of the summer sun and bitter winter cold as well as the heat of styling aids like curling irons, flat irons, hot curlers and other heated tools.
Hair with sufficient intact keratin is well equipped to withstand the onslaught of environmental stressors. Still, persistent exposure to stress will finally do some damage to the long strings of keratin, which are responsible for keeping the shape of every hair intact. Once keratin is broken down into small enough strings, it becomes water soluble and will be washed away.
