I am not sure if I should completely get rid of protein because a lot of the products I use and like have it. Maybe I could use it less often but my hair seems to dislike glycerin unless the weather is PERFECT which is rare.

I know a lot of low porosity curlies usually do not like protein but I also know it varies.
