Significance

Collagen is an important protein of the body's connective tissue. Keratin is a tough protein that hair and nails are made of. Both are important in hair's structure and health.

Considerations

As a person ages, the body loses the ability to make collagen. Hair can become dry, brittle, coarse, break easily and fall out. Keratin is the dominant protein for keeping hair strong.

Collagen Benefits

Collagen can improve hair's appearance and follicles. Hair care products containing collagen do not just work on the outside layers of the hair, they work all the way down to the scalp and the hair cuticles.

Keratin Benefits

Keratin is used in hair care products to naturally straighten hair. Hair that has been salon treated with keratin remains sleek and smooth for up to three months.

Supplements

Collagen and keratin supplements are available and work to combat ageing hair. They fight off damaging free radicals which can show up visibly in hair's texture, growth and thickness.

Potential

Collagen and keratin in hair care products can make hair stronger, less frizzy, shiny, silky, sleek and more manageable. Salons offer treatments and processes can also be done at home. Supplements can help nails and skin as well as hair.
