    The conditioner that I use for cowashing is no longer sold at the store next door! I attribute that conditioner to my hair gaining more curl definition. Ugh.

    Hello my fellow protein queens. I've been lurking this thread for a while but every time I would try to post, something would distract me, then I'd lose the thread. I believed my dryness came from a lack of moisture so I wasn't using as much protein as I should. Also, I was trying to go super hard with the CGM but there aren't too many protein based products to choose from so I've decided to abandon that quest.

    Hair (type, length, porosity, density)
    Natural 4B/4C, SL, high po, medium density. Fine, color treated

    What kind of proteins will you be using?
    Whatever I can get my grubby little hands on

    What products containing protein will you be using?
    All time fave is Aphogee 2 minute. Had success so far this year with the Redken Extreme line. Also tried Bumble and bumble Invisible Oil primer and that got my hair right. Have some Olaplex and Nexxus Keraphix I will be using for a few weeks.

    How often will you use it?
    2-3 times per week.

    If you currently have a protein rich regimen, how do you feel it has benefited you? I've noticed that my hair sees the most benefits from using light to medium protein based products more often instead of a megadose of a hard protein. I can tell when my hair is in need of protein because my ends are super stretchy and have lots of frizz. When I add protein, I'm able to manipulate my hair better and this is aiding in my retention. One thing I've learned I have to watch out for is protein and moisture in my leave-in products. I do LOC but if both the L and the C are moisture based, it will tip the balance and cause the stretching and frizz.

    @IDareT'sHair - How do you like this conditioners? My favorite thing about it is detangling my hair is easy with this on. I wasn’t sure if I should count this as a protein conditioner even though is says it’s a repairing mask.
