Thanks for replying. I've been trying to take out protein lately and increasing my deep treatments, which I haven't been taking that seriously before. I realized that most of the products I've been using before had protein in, so maybe I do have protein overload. I think my hair is kind of dry. It sounds kind of crunchy when I hold it and doesn't stretch much. I'm not sure if it's always been like that, or if it's because of the protein, since I just recently tried to pay attention to my hair more when I noticed more breakage. So right now I think I'm gonna take a break from experimenting with protein.
