Thanks, Triple_Spiral, I have been wondering the same thing myself - I avoid protein like the plague, hair hates it - but maybe I occasionally need some! Hard to find the right balance, huh? I will do an egg and mayo treatment today and see if it helps....my hair is not at the fuzzy stage, it just won't keep the style I put it in ;p so it is definitely soft! And I definitely am lacking crunch! lol! I am still learning how to live with my curls...they are very demanding!
I avoid proteins as well, in my styling, shampoo, and conditioners - but I still need protein every now and then, which I get in the form of a treatment every couple of weeks. If you can get your hands of Repair Me, that is a really good treatment that actually doesn't tangle or make my hair rough at all....awesome results. If homemade, I used to use yogurt (never tried mayo) mixed with honey, olive oil, and conditioner.
Tks! I will look for the Repair me! Meanwhile, I will try the yogourt method - I have plain Greek yogourt which is full of protein...I'll let you know how it goes!
