Question on PROTEIN really ????

Ok so im newly natural. When i was relaxed i was protein sensitive so nothing with protein worked then. But now that im natural i see alot of homemade treatmeants for us naturals andn they contain egg or mayo. My question is this am i still protein sensitive or is it ok to use it now that im not relaxed.

Well, my GUESS is that you might be even more protein sensitive right now. When your hair was relaxed, your hair was VERY damaged so you probably had high porosity hair. High porosity generally likes protein. Your new hair might be medium or low porosity (or still high).

But it matters more whether you have coarse, medium or thin hair. Coarse hair usually dislikes protein. Thin hair likes it. And I don't see why your hair width should have changed when you went natural. It's probably still the same width.

Also, the fact that it's a 'homemade treatment for naturals' doesn't mean that every natural can use it for their hair. On the contrary. A lot of people here who have natural hair are protein sensitive. There are many 'natural' recipes, products etc and some people love them, and some people hate them.

Also, remember that even protein sensitive hair needs protein every now and then.

Anyway, the best way to find out whether you are still protein sensitive is to just try it out. Maybe on small section, if you're scared to try it.
