Thank you so much for your help! I actually called Darcy's Botanicals and got the owner on the phone to ask her about the protein, and she said that the amount is really, really small, and she made it that way so as to not affect protein-sensitive curlies. Also, she said the oat protein she chose specifically helps retain moisture
. She was so nice!! I decided to get a big DB Pumpkin Conditioner and try a DB Leave-in as well!
