Interesting!! So how does that work when it sounds like a bit of a paradox!?

Do you have to be really careful with proteins then? i.e. you can't just throw a load of protein at it?

Have you done the strand stretch test? I just did it on a strand of wet hair and it stretched to 80% of its length before snapping.
