Any of you that have a HIGH PROTEIN DIET (eaten, not for hair) have troubles with split ends? I was thinking of eating more protein to see if that low protein was the cause??
I would say I have a moderate(adequate) protein diet but no grains(gluten sensitivity) and no sugar. My hair loves this diet and so do my nails. When I stopped eating this way and went back to a "convenience" diet, ie quick easy pick up meals from the grocery or stuff with wheat or grains, my hair actually started falling out more quickly. I have thinning hair from PCOS anyway so keeping my insulin(and androgen hormones) down with the no grains/sugar helps my general health and as a great side-effect my hair benefits too. When you're not eating the grains/sugar, you tend to eat a ton of vegetables which you get the benefit of too.

I have been using protein almost every time I wet my hair now (every 2-3 days) along with moisture and my hair has only improved. I did an experiment to see how long I could go without protein and after about a week my hair got way too fluffy and yuck. So I think plenty of protein is for me!
I did the same experiment a year ago. It's still in progress as I haven't hit a protein wall yet. My hair just keeps getting better and better. I only use protein products on my hair, no moisture and my hair is the best its ever been in my entire life. I will only be using protein from now on.
