I have no clue how much protein my hair actually needs vs. how much moisture it needs. I know I need a pretty good amount of moisture. though.

My question(s): What type of proteins are best to look for in products?

I currently have KCCC, Devacurl, shea moisture shea butter masque, Renpure conditioners (red and green bottles), TN, GFTN, BioInfusion conditiong balm, JC revitalizing leave in conditioner, organix moroccon (sp?) curl perfection defining cream, organix coconut milk weightless mousse, HETMS mousse, HETT gel, LALSG, one n' only Argan Oil volume mousse, l'oreal eversleek smoothing cream, and that's all I can think of at the moment.

How often should you use a PT and products with protein?

How can you tell if you get too much protein?
I read that hydrolized proteins are the best to look for, as they actually bind to the hair shaft. Nature's Gate conditioners have hydrolized proteins, and they work very well as a least for me.

I'd say to do a pt every 6 weeks or so. You'll know that you've had too much protein when, even after doing a moisturizing treatment, your hair feels brittle and straw-like.
