Yes, definitely sounds like you need a protein fix. What kind of protein do you usually use that's more of a treatment than what you mention?
2/c-3a Coarse hair med. density.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
Every day is a gift
