I am not sure if I am sentive to proteins or not? I am not on CG, I wash my hair every day. Right now I am using a Natures Gate Poo. Basically what I think is happening with the condtioners is that they cause me frizz. I think it could be perhaps they are too much moisture? My hairdid real well with the Deva, I got great chunky curls but fly away frizz that does not seem to happen with other stuff.

someone correct me if this is wrong

There is an ingredient called Stearalkonium Chloride that is in the majority of conditioners. This ingredient gives me frizz galore & makes my hair feel "coated" One of my most favorite conditioners for pure moisture is the Nature's Gate Herbal. A lot of the other flavors of NG have the above SC ingredient in them & I haven't even bothered trying them, but the Herbal gives me tons of moisture w/o weighing my hair down, & boosts my waves/curls.
