I was looking to try AOWC after my bottle of HR runs out. I was excited to see it in this thread, but when I went to the AO website, the description reads:
Tame unruly hair with this ultra-smoothing shampoo. Protein-enriched, moisturizing formula strengthens as it protects against heat damage and breakage, restoring manageability for the look you want—whether it's silky, shiny lengths or soft, controlled curls.

INGREDIENTS: Coconut Fatty Acid Cream Base, Organic Aloe Vera, White Camellia Oil, Wheat Germ Oil; Extracts of Fennel, Hops, Balm Mint, Mistletoe, Camomile and Yarrow; Organic Geranium Oil, Organic Rosemary Oil, Organic Sage Oil, Carrot Oil, Aubrey's Preservative (Citrus Seed Extract, Vitamins A, C and E).
My hair really hates proteins, so I think this might be a no-go . I'll repurchase AOHR next time

I acutally tried the AOWC (Wheat Germ Oil is 5th ingredient) this past week-end and loved it. However, today my scalp is seriously itching. Which is the affect certain proteins have on my scalp. I will add this one to the list. I am going to try adding Tea Tree EO to it to see if it would help because this is the BEST conditioner I have used in my life. Not even exaggerating.

Only thing I can see is maybe it AOWC has more Wheat Germ Oil than the other condishes???? Just to give ingredients of the most popular condishes!

So if it's not the wheat germ oil that makes the AWOC "Protein-enriched," then what else could it be?
