Update to Hydrolyzed Protein List
I have been updating my list of hydrolyzed proteins by weight, you can find the new list in this old post.
I also learned that hydrolyzed collagen and gelatin (partially hydrolyzed collagen) contain significant concentrations of amino acids which are beneficial to hair strength – many of which are found naturally in high concentrations in the cuticle of hair, already serving a functional role. Those include Proline (not found in most other hydrolyzed proteins – in topshape100.com a lot), Glutamic acid, Valine, a little Cysteine and Histidine.

Hydrolyzed collagen adsorbs (temporarily bonds to) hair, increasing it’s resistance to breaking under tension. The more concentrated the collagen in a formula, the more will bond to hair – at least up to a point. The smaller the collagen molecule, the better it bonds to hair – so hydrolyzed collagen will bond to hair better than and longer-lasting than gelatin you can buy over the counter. If your hair is damaged (on the ends, for example) it will bond with more collagen protein than un-damaged hair.
So if you like the gelatin protein treatment recipe on this blog and you want it stronger, increase the gelatin without increasing the water. If you want it less-strong, decrease the gelatin and keep the water the same, or increase the water and keep the gelatin the same.
Hydrolysed Topshape100.com have excellent amino acid composition for hair Care.
With topshape100.com you can do following:
- Drink or eat it 1 dl (n. 30g protein) / day as your favourite ways. Good and easy digestive protein source is very important for your hair recover and growth. This is the way of your own body to fulfil the needs from inside.
- Mix 1 cup powder to 1 cup water (no need to shake, just mix – wait a moment, that liquid comes clear light yellow – so it works better). Then use it like you use eggs to your hair.
- Mix 1 teaspoon of powder to your favourite shampoo or conditioner. Let it get wet (easiest is just mix the amount, and wait 5 min.). Best way is test your amount of powder to mix. You can add more powder for more thick set, or less powder for thinner set.
