So I gave this a shot today. Figured I have nowhere to go until Monday so if it ended up looking like straw, who cares over the weekend.
Did 1/4 cup water, 1 packet gelatin, 1/4 tsp ACV, and 2 tsp SN conditioner. Didn't have any oil.
It was pretty runny, distributed it on washed hair as evenly as possible, put a plastic walmart bag over it cause that's all I had, and ran it under shower water for a few mins.
Results... not much of anything. Did not feel dry at ALL while rinsing it out, in fact it felt really soft, like softer than normal, to the point where all I used afterwards was a bit of SN conditioner that I didn't leave in very long. Weird. Hair still feels super soft. It's still frizzy, and not any bouncier. Curl pattern *might* be slightly better at the crown. Otherwise, can't tell much of a difference. So I guess it doesn't hate protein - it's not any worse, but not any better either.
fine, thin, normal/(low?) porosity. Mod-CG. Usually I can't co-wash more than 1x a week, & sometimes I have to use T-Gel in rotation due to scalp issues.
