On the hot seat is Mr. Protein! For this reflection, I’ll be sharing something interesting, especially for ma curly haired peeps! Hair is made up of a protein, keratin, which forms a helical shape. This protein has sulfur bonds, and the more sulfur links it has, the curlier a person’s hair will be! ie a hair shaft with more sulfur ions placed closer together will result in a tighter curl pattern. Having curly hair can be a stress at times! Frizz is a major problem lol! Once in a while I’m guilty of using a flat iron even though I hear ‘too much heat is bad for your hair.’ There are 3 types of bonds in our hair,hydrogen, salt and disulphide bonds! Heat loosens the hydrogen and salt bonds which causes a change in hair texture and therefore results in a straighter pattern!
Shoutout to those with curls! 🙂
