I never do, strong protein treatment, But I tend to do a rinse out - protein conditioner when My hair feels limp and dull. Although before that rinse out, I clarify with a no-poo or a mild sulphate. So the order I do would be

Deep moisture treatment

Protein treatment should always followed by deep treatment
I disagree on always following a PT or protein with a DT. I never do. I have fine, thin, low-normal porosity and rarely if ever DT. I can do a gelatin PT & follow it with my regular RO & be fine. It all depends on how your hair reacts. If I followed protein with a DT I'd undo what I just did with the protein.
fine, thin, normal/(low?) porosity. Mod-CG. Usually I can't co-wash more than 1x a week, & sometimes I have to use T-Gel in rotation due to scalp issues.
