Default Need a homemade DT recipe...protein sensitive

I think I am protein senstive but I am in need of moisture. I would like to do a homemade DT...any suggestions?

Best I can tell:
2B, dense, low porosity, coarse, protein sensitve, really thick and naturally frizzy hair! If I leave me hair naked, it looks like I stuck my finger in a light socket! I would've made a great 80's hair band groupie!!!!

Been using KCCC which I love but my hair still looks really dry when it dries.

Thanks for your help!!!

when i do a DT i just use a base of my normal conditioner i then add tones of oils and what ever else i found at home. last night i did one, with macadamia nut oil, Vit E oil, and Aloe vera. im also protein sensitive, so i just dont add any eggs, or yoghurt, mayo.....
honey is a good one as well.

Have you tried coconut oil? I LOVE it. Just smear some through dry hair, and then wash and style as usual a few hours later (or after overnight). Some people have a hard time getting it out of their hair, but mine soaks it up! It leaves my hair moisturized and shiny and not at all greasy.

Also, it's not homemade, but Biolage conditioning balm or the GVP conditioning balm from Sally's works well for many as a DT. No protein.

I don't think coconut is a good ideal since it mimicking the hairs natural protein, u might still feel like u getting protein overload. I don't know any homemade DT but try curl junkies they have lots of protein free conditioner and DT
