Hi asianrunner, thanks for responding! I don't mind oils or products. Just something that will deliver the moisture it needs without sucking the water out of my hair or turning it into hay. Is jojoba oil one of those? I haven't done my research on oils yet. :x

Knotty_Maddy, thanks! I never noticed that before! Definitely helpful. I have heard people talk about how it's sometimes difficult to know when something is really protein free since they don't all follow the simple suffixes rule (ex - hydrolyzed coconut oil), so I'm a little worried about how well the filter function might work. Guess I was just hoping someone else might have had experience will protein-free emollient products.

kathymack, I'll look into these products, thanks!
