It kind of sounds like you might need a DT more than a Protein treatment. I have had a lot of luck with doing some that work both at once.
I just recently tried the Henna & Placenta w Olive Oil pack at Sally's. It really helped. I almost think I should have done two back to back because my hair was really damaged. But it was a perfect combo of PT and DT.
We do have different hair, but I will say most people get straw like hair AFTER using too much protein, so I'd focus more on a DT than anything.
HTH! If you could give a bit more background on your hair history that might help too!
