Our strands are basically made up of lipids and keratin which is a protein formed by amino acids and is produced by animals primarily for the formation of the structure of the hair and nail strands. As such, Keratin becomes an extremely important ingredient for hair care. If it is missing, then part of the basic structure of the hair is missing. Due to aggressions (coloring, sunlight, etc.), the hair strands end up losing this property. It is therefore important that the strands receive products that have this component in the formula.
Today it is possible to produce Hydrolyzed Proteins from Wheat, Soybeans, Rice, Corn and other cereals, where an amino acid composition can be obtained, forming a "Vegetable Keratin". Because keratin is healthy not only for hair, but for nails and skin, you can imagine the number of products that would benefit from the new version of keratin. In the hair Vegetable Keratin has the function of recovering the hair, bringing more strength, hydration and shine.
These are composed of amino acids similar to those that make up animal keratin. The penetrability is also the same as Vegetable Keratin has low molecular weight. We can say that the proteins derived from vegetables, maintain the same performance of the ingredient of animal origin, bringing life, shine and strength to the hair.
The only difference between the two is that Vegetal does not leave the heavy, unbalanced strands like the animal one.
