This is my hair, lol. This is end of the day second day hair.

I'm actually quite happy with my hair. However, I've been worried about using too much protein. Yes my hair is drier than yesterday and I have frizz but that seems normal for me on a second day hair.

What do you all think? For protein sensitive curlies, does BRHG bother you?

Also, any recs for protein free and glycerin free HARD hold gel?
3b | low-normal porosity (still confused, definitely not high porosity) | med to coarse texture

Co-Wash: most any silicone free V05 or Suave | RO: GVP Cond. Balm, GVP Joico K Pak, Tresemme Naturals Moisutrizing Cond., SheaMoisture Shea Butter Restorative Cond. | LI: one of my rinse outs | DT: one of my rinse outs with oil | Stylers: BRHG
Not sure but thats the same kind of frizz I constantly have. I also have hair that doesn't need protein as it already has enough, maybe more than enough. I hope you get an answer!
2(I have no idea what pattern), low porosity, mix of medium and coarse, dense

*Have just discovered the amazingness that is the "Spritz and Condish" routine*

Shampoo: SM Moisture Retention Shampoo
Co-wash: VO5 Vanilla Mint Tea Clarifying Conditioner
RO: GVP CB, Garnier Triple Nutrition
LI : Whatever conditioner I used + EVOO or Argon oil
Stylers: Organix Moroccan Curling Perfection Defining Creme, EcoStyler Gel (krystal)
I am not sure if I should completely get rid of protein because a lot of the products I use and like have it. Maybe I could use it less often but my hair seems to dislike glycerin unless the weather is PERFECT which is rare.

I know a lot of low porosity curlies usually do not like protein but I also know it varies.

My protein frizz feels brittle, even when wet. My non protein frizz ( say from manipulation or lack of moisture) is mainly undefined and whispy but very localized to an area that I can pinpoint with some sort of disturbance to the curl. Hope this helps
3B, Fine, Normal P, Normal E, Low-Med D
LowP: Kinky Curly Come Clean (50% EVOO)
NoP: As I Am CC
RO: Suave Coconut, VO5 Shea Cashmere
LI: KCKT or CJBCLI or HETT/HENOYF (w/ 8 drops GSO)

How does your hair feel about sorbitol? There is a brand I found at Target called LaBella that is supposed to be hard hold, but in comparing that and Herbal Essences Totally Twisted - which is essentially the same thing but without sorbitol - I learned that my hair TOTALLY FREAKS OUT when exposed to sorbitol, so I have no idea what the hold might be. It is, however, both protein and glycerin free. HETT is probably not a "hard hold", if that's what you're looking for.

I would offer to send you the LaBella bottle, but the shipping would probably cost more than a new one, ha.
Mod CG since 5/10, 2b/3a, med width/density, low/med porosity, greying since 18, color over grey since 21

Hair hates: non-keratin protein, glycerin, sorbitol, agave, sulfates, polyquats, co-washing (flaky scalp), maybe aloe?
Hair loves: fewer/more natural ingredients, moisture

Scalp wash: Selsun Blue naturals or reg when desperate
Low poo: Giovanni TTTT
RO: SN - Strawberry, ES
LI: SNES
Style: HETT mousse, FSG if I make it, ??
DT: GVPCB
PT: GVPKP
