Products won't "harm" your hair. You'll just continue to be overconditioned--soft and frizzy. Not sure why you'd want that???
You need to add protein in order to correct it.

I use a lot of rich products, but conteract it with protein. I do at least one PT (with a moisturizing PT) a week and use a lot of products with protein. Never have to DT.


So you do a protein treatment every week instead of doing a deep condition?
I do at least one PT a week and use a lot of products with protein. In the summer, I frequently do two. My hair has never met a protein it didn't like. When I first started lurking on nc.com, I did DT because I thought I should. Once I got to know my hair and the ingredients/products it prefers, I stopped. Don't think I've done a PT since summer of '08, if not before.

Condition of my hair is so good, that the shampoo guy at the salon won't condition (he just doesn't "get" it.)

Hmmm. I tried a protein treatment on parts of my hair that are bleached about two weeks ago and it made them worse. Could that be just because they are bleached? I'm afraid to have that reaction with the rest of my hair if I try it. Thanks again for helping me out :-)
