Interesting - I was told to use protein now and then, but it wasn't so specific. I wish it was!

Anyway, this is what I know about proteins (and it might not be all-encompassing):

if it says "hydrolyzed" it's probably a protein
if it says "amino acid" it's probably a protein
if it says "keratin" it's probably a protein.

HTH! Hopefully someone else will be able to tell you more.

Tried CG for a summer, but it wasn't for me. I don't load up on sulfates and silicones, but I have no shame in using them when I want/need to! Currently loving LOOB.
