After much experimentation, I found that my hair hates glycerin and when I cut that out completely I could use small bits of protein occasionally. I can't use wheat protein at all! After my hair got over proteined, I had to cut it out completely for a few months. I recommend Darcy's Botanicals, Curl Junkie, Curly Kinks and Jessicurl products. They all have several items that are protein free. I love Jessicurl Too Shea and I also use the Weekly Deep Treatment as a rinse out conditioner. I really like Darcy's Botanicals Pumpkin Seed Conditioner during the winter. Curl Junkie Argan and Olive oil conditioner, beauticurls leave in and cocoa bean smoothing cream are also great! Curly Kinks products are really great, but I can't tolerate the glycerin. Let me know if you want me to send you some sample of products. I have many that I rotate and I have plenty I could send you.
