How do you know when you need a protein conditioning treatment? What are some good cost effective protein conditioners?

I'm on a mission to have the healthiest hair possible so that I can grow my hair long fast. I'm simply tired of not meeting my length goals.

I think I'm normal-overly porous, medium-thick hair(although I see fine hair too), love protein
hair that needs protein can feel "mushy" when wet, and lacks the "rigid" strong feel that healthy hair has. If when you stretch you hair while wet it stretches very far then breaks, you have some kind of protein problem going on. There are many foods that are high in protein. Foods such as eggs, yogurt, and bananas. You can try to add a protein rich food into your hair as a deep conditioner. You hair may experience protein overload so try to add a conditioner, any is fine, to your protein food of choice. Keep this mixture under a plastic cap, or plastic bag, for at least 30 minutes or overnight if you want. Remember to always try to keep a good protein/moisture balance to keep your hair breakage free and long. If you hair does not need protein, giving it protein will not make it "healthier" but rather may lead to breakage.

Hope this helps
