My hair has yet to meet a protein it doesn't like. I have fine hair that has been colored. I use protein pretty much daily- cleansers, conditioners, styling products- at least one of my products has protein, usually more than one. I don't do protein treatments nearly as often as I should, but I was able to do them weekly without any signs of too much protein.
