My hair's protein sensitive in that it does fine with certain proteins (silk) and definitely not as well with other proteins. I've been using SAA as an additive to DTs and homemade FSG for a couple of months now, and my hair has liked it a lot. I've read a little of the science behind proteins and hair, and what I've learned is basically that SAA are just the 'building blocks' of protein, and not technically a protein. But that's probably what allows my hair to reap the benefits of SAA without reacting to it like it's a stronger (i.e. a full blown) protein. At this point, I use something on my hair that contains SAA at least once a week, but very often 2 to 3 times a week with no adverse effects. The DTs I add SAA to I leave on my hair at least 30 minutes.
