what does protein do for your hair??

also, will a product list it as protein? or does it have another scientific name???
Also, does anyone know if doing CG helps your hair grow faster? my hair always seems to grow so slow... just wondered if doing CG will help my hair grow faster?!?!?
Try these threads: http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlre...-care-products (lists alternative names for proteins)

Yes, You Do Need Protein (a good thread on why you may need protein)

http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlre...about-proteins (a CurlChemist article on what proteins do)

Some curlies/wavies take biotin to help their hair grow faster. I think rudeechick was taking some minerals/vitamin supplements for that.

thanks Elita yes, I do feel less greasy....but today my hair seems more frizzy and i shampooed with no sulfate poo... i wonder if my hair doesn't care for the poo OR I have touched it too much. My left side seems to have a lot less wave than the right and today i fiddled with with it too much and it's blah!
You had mentioned that you diffused yesterday and I wanted to show you this thread from the other day on diffusing. Laura Lee describes the pixiecurl method which a lot of us use and it could help.

Also are you using the poo on all of your hair or just your scalp? I highly recommend that when you poo you put condish (the cheap co-wash kind is fine) on the length of your hair, then use the poo on your scalp, then rinse them out together. That way your scalp is getting clean but your hair isn't getting stripped of moisture.

I pooed today and I washed my entire hair with it. Next time, I will just do the scalp and co-wash the rest. Thanks!!!
Just realized I never linked the diffusing thread.
Diffusing...??

Also I saw on your other thread that your hair feels straw-like. Tomorrow try this:
1.co-wash massaging your scalp really well
2.condition with your thicker conditioner
3.scrunch in a leave-in to soaking wet hair (if you don't have one you can use a little of your condish or co-wash)
4.immediately follow with scrunching in your gel making sure to get it worked in and distributed evenly (did you watch the video yet?)
5.use a curl towel or t-shirt to scrunch out excess water (terrycloth towels are not good for curls)
6.diffuse or air dry, whichever you prefer
7.while your hair is drying don't touch it
8.scrunch out the crunch with your hands when it is completely dry if you want

Most curlies do better with putting product in soaking wet hair. It seems to distribute easier. Also an easy way to do it is bring your gel in the shower with you. That way you've already scrunched out some excess water and aren't dripping wet.

Just to let you know, you don't have to start another post every time you have a question here in the 2s. Not if it's still related to your previous posts at least. When I'm on I always make sure to read anything new in a post I have contributed too and most others do too.

cool. I'll try it out.
I'm at work right now, so I'll have to wait for my co-worker to leave to watch the vid. Thanks for all your tips
