Default Proteins Q


I know you must get asked this many times over, but I can't find any direct answers in the searches I've done.

1 - What "symptoms" would you get if your hair doesn't like proteins?

2 - How would you know if your hair *did* like proteins?

Much thanks

If your hair is damaged, proteins will often improve the way it looks and feels. If your hair doesn't have much or any damage, sometimes you will get a buildup. A typical pattern would be that the product works great at first, but after a few days of use, your hair gets rough and unmanageable. Protein buildup would normally be no problem for those who shampoo regularly. Sensitivity varies a lot from person to person -- you just have to determine for yourself what your hair tolerates.

I find that protein in a conditioner doesn't bother my hair, but a protein-heavy styling product causes problems and will only work for one or two days.
