After reading this thread I was convinced I needed protein and got some gpb. Wrong! My hair is now practically straight! It is very soft except for the ends which are a bit fried. I'm a bit confused now. Can I be both over conditioned and proteined? This balance game is driving me nuts. Hope it works better for y'all!

Or could be because you didn't deep condition after the protein treatments.
