Default Lo and no Poos with lots of protein?

I'm looking to cut some time from my hair care regimen and would like to know if there are lo and no poo products that have a good amount of protein in them for strengthening my hair.

If you know of any can you please list what they are and where they can be purchased?

If you're talking no poo, as in cowash, Cure Care (Sally's) has a good amount of hydrolyzed keratin (4th ingredient after water). VO5 Kiwi Lime Squeeze has hydrolyzed collagen (7th ingredient), and if your hair tolerates shea butter, VO5's Shea Cashmere also has a decent amount of hydrolyzed keratin (5th ingredient). Cure Care and Kiwi Lime are my staple cowashes.

As far as proteiny low poos, I've heard good things about Renpure's Brazilian Keratin Straightening shampoo, but check the ingredients list. The matching conditioner has been reformulated to contain amodimethicone. Renpure | Hair Care Products | Where To Buy

ETA: Slightly off-topic, but if you don't mind some mixology, Science-y Hair Blog suggests adding some unflavored gelatin to your favorite rinse out conditioner. I tried it with 1pkg Knox and 1/4 cup each Cure Care and water. It worked well for a major protein hit, but lacked slip, so I added a few drops of oil to my 2nd batch.

Thanks! especially for the gelatin in the RO suggestion. Just a couple of question tho, is the gelatin supposed to be already melted with hot water before adding to the RO? also, do you add this to then entire bottle of RO or is this something you add to the amount of RO used at one time.

Yes, gelatin into water before adding to the conditioner. No, don't add it to the entire bottle of conditioner, it could overwhelm the preservatives and cause the conditioner to go rancid. This is strictly a small batch thing.

If you don't want lumps in your gelatin, put 3/4 the amount of cold water you plan to use, then sprinkle your gelatin on top. Let it sit for 30 seconds or so, then pop it in the microwave till the gelatin fully dissolves. Should take less than a minute, depending on how powerful your microwave is, so watch to make sure it doesn't boil over. Take it out and stir, then mix in the rest of your cold water. Let the mixture cool some before stirring in your conditioner, and of course cool till it's comfortable before applying to your head.

When I made it (1pkg Knox and 1/4 cup each Cure Care and water), it was enough for 2 uses. I did store my extra in the fridge between uses and floated the container in some very hot water to help it liquefy before I did my 2nd use. The first time there was 0 slip and it left my hair fairly tangled (not a problem I usually have with RO's), so I added a few drops of oil for the 2nd try. Much better slip, but not enough oil to overwhelm the happy protein effects.
