Oh and a protein treatment is like a deep treatment but more protein based than moisture based. You can slather your hair with mayonnaise thirty minutes before you're supposed to shower. You can mix some egg, olive or coconut oil together and put that in your hair to leave for an hour. You could do a keratin treatment using knox unflavored gelatin. (Very easy!) Or you could buy a protein treatment. Joice K-Pak and Aphogee two-step are reportedly popular but I like to experiment at home. Why buy something when I can whip it up myself, you know? So fine to medium hair and very porous hair tends to like a PT now and again. Coarse hair tends not to.
