this is an excellent thread. Now I know what I'm missing with the SAA and ceramides. I've got to get that CHI silk infusion or better yet the SAA itself.

Anyone know anything about sulfur amino acids like cysteine and methionine? Aubrey Organics GPB uses them and Lactalbumin (milk protein) in their GPB conditioner. I use this as a protein treatment. Do these proteins penetrate deep to repair the hair at it's three layers? Awesome thread, btw :).

I just want to mention that the ACV rinse recipe in Sistaslick's article may not be good for everyone. I tried it in that measure and it affected my cuticles in a terrible way. i think it'd be better if you started with a very small amount in the water then build up if it didnt work the first time.
