Default Favorite protein-free conditioners????

My hair is SOOOOO unhappy!

It might be just the dry, cold weather and the dry dry heat indoors, but I'm wondering if it could be protein sensitivity. My hair looks and feels crappy today after using Elucence, which is usually so reliable for me.

Those of you who are protein sensitive, what conditioners/deep treatments do you use?

Back to basics Pomegranate conditioner. No protein woohoo!

Curl Junkie Hibiscus & Banana Deep Fix Moisturizing Conditioner for the occasional DT. I don't do this very often though as my hair doesn't seem to need it much.

Thanks. I'll look for the Back to Basics on my way home today.

Re the CJ BH Deep Fix. I've been out of it, but I've been reluctant to reorder because it does have some protein in it. I've been wanting to try the CoffeeCoco Curl Creme, but I'm afraid of the protein in that, too.

You could try the guava creme (the one WITHOUT protein).

I've been using condtioners from Steiner for almost a week. They appear to be protein free - it pricey. No reactions so far, which is a rare thing for me.

Hmmm, Steiner? Just looked it up on their site and read your posts. Sounds good, but YOWZA expensive!!! Is it available in any stores, so I could at least avoid shipping charges?

Anyone else try it?

Anyone else protein sensitive who can still use the CJ HB Deep Fix?

Yes, the prices are ridiculous. I haven't found them anywhere else yet but ebay, and it's from the same people who run the website so the prices are the same. Mostly I used it because I avoid protein and glycerin, which is a hard combo to find. Other stuff free of both items (mostly Suave, White Rain and such) just hasn't been moisturizing enough for me this winter. IIRC, Steiner mostly sells spa stuff on cruise ships and some land spas so they charge crazy spa prices. It's an English company, so I don't know if their stuff is cheaper in the UK.

I think I'll try the Back to Basics Pomegranate to see if that cheaper option works. If it doesn't, I can get rid of it quickly enough on the swap board.

As for the CJ Deep Fix, if I only used it once every 10 days or so, I was OK. More than that, I noticed the protein. YMMV though.

ETA: The CJ Deep Fix would probably be considered low-protien, so some protein sensitive folks could use it since the protein is lower on the list.

Can the Back to Basics be found at the local drugstore? Or does it have to be bought online. Tried to search on the site of Walgreens and Ulta and couldn't find it.

TIA

The B2B can be bought at most of the salon brand stores (Trade Secrets, Beauty Express, Beauty Brands, Wal-Mart salon, etc). So you don't have to order it online.

There is a salon finder option that might help. I found some at a local Cost Cutters.

Thank You! Debating because I found it real cheap online for $3.99 on all their shampoos and conditioners except the litres.

They have a place online that has the old formula for 3.99, they're clearing out the old stuff.
I haven't seen prices on that new formula in the regular size yet. They have the liters for 14 and some change online though.
I wonder if the salons locally are having a sale on the old stuff to

I stay away from protein for several reasons and I use Gluten-Free Savonnerie Conditioner. LOOOOVE the stuff. I get it online.
