If you're not about to spend hundreds of dollars or risk your hair further damage with in-salon treatments, using at-home products that contain the fibrous protein may be the way to go. From shampoos and conditioners to hair oils, we've got products that use keratin in the best way possible.

Nothing ruins a good hair day like unexpected frizz. This serum is super lightweight and is sure to keep your hair smooth all day. Plus, it also gives your hair some extra shine.

This really restores damaged hair back to its healthy state. It replaces the protein your hair lost and protects the natural keratin in your hair, making it stronger, keeping it hydrated, and bringing out its natural luster. You can also use it as a styling tool: It's a great heat protectant and anti-humidity spray.

Both are made with keratin proteins that reinforce each hair strand's elasticity and help protect against breakage. It also contains argan oil to smoothe hair and give it a nice shine.

This at-home treatment gives your hair the ultimate deep conditioning. It uses a gold-keratin peptide complex technology to give damaged hair hydration, volume, and protection against future damage. After you shampoo, apply product all over your hair and put it inside the bonnet provided. Attach the hair dryer and run it at low heat for 15 minutes. Rinse after and style like you normally would, and you'll find softer and fuller hair. 

Virtue uses an ingredient called Alpha Keratin 60ku that is identical to the keratin found in your hair, to heal and repair damaged parts. This set will replenish any lost nutrients and help get it back to being healthy. 

This leave-in conditioner contains a lightweight formula that infuses keratin into the hair strand and seals the cuticle to keep its moisture. It also provides a 48-hour frizz control, which is pretty amazing.

Here, you'll find a mask that uses a keratin amino complex to promote healthy hair growth. This mask does more than repair split ends and rehydrate damaged hair. It's also an exfoliator that removes dead skin from the scalp.
