I started CG using tresemee and trader Joes tea tree tingle. I wasn't having great luck and some one here suggested maybe needing to add protein to a product. I switched tresemee out for suave coconut. Good news is, my hair has been responding better, not as frizzy and the curls are coming out more, more definition....problem is, I have very sensitive skin, and psoriasis on my scalp. I've always had issues with suave (what my parents bought me growing up) and I thought, well, I'll try it. My scalp is flaring up BIg time. I need something with the power of the suave, but not the suave. I don't know why it irritates me so much.

Miss Jessie's Pillow soft curls, diffuse 50%, add KCCC and diffuse to 80%.
Always wash upside down.
What about VO5 moisture milks. They have protein. I will use them as my protein rinse out sometimes.

Psoriasis usually requires prescription treatments to manage. I've had good luck with clobetasol foam.
2c, fine, extremely dense, color-treated, high porosity.

Hmm... Well, I LOVE Vo5's Shea cashmere! It has protein, and it's pretty moisturizing and has decent slip for how cheap it is!

But I have had a lot of luck with GVPCB and mixing some CNPF with it! Both available at Sally's, and not very expensive at all!

Shea Moisture's products all have protein, too. I like their masque, but I combine it with other things bc I need slip. They also have a restorative conditioner, but again I find it's not slippy or rich enough. I do use it religiously as a LI, tho!

Sally's also has a protein filled treatment by Ion - I think it's called Restorative treatment or something... I can never remember until I see it, and I'm out right now! But it's good, too!
