Default Good hair day, ? about protein, and NG Hemp Nourishing Co

First of all, I had a really good hair day!! Co was Samy curl enhancing or whatever in the orange bottle (not sure if it's CG but it's all I had). LA Looks Durahold, plop for 20 mins, diffuse. I diffused for less time than I usual do, 'cause I had to get out the door to get to school on time. More frizz than I'd like today, but no crunch and my hair was way more ringlet-y than it usually is!! Happy day

Is Hydrolyzed Keratin a protein? If so, my hair doesn't like it ... it's in the Sally gallon co Honey and Almond. Here's all the ingredients, if there's another random weird protein in there, let me know ... or tell me what you think could be causing this co to make my hair unhappy:

Water, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Chloride, Honey, Prunus Anygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Pyrus Mallus (Apple) Pectin Extract, Popylene Glycol, Dicetyldimonium Chloride, Fragrance, Citric Acid, Polymethoxy Bicyclic Oxazolidine, FD&C Blue No. 1, FD&C Yellow No. 5, D&C Red No. 4, D&C Red No. 33.

Lastly, I tried Nature's Gate Aloe Moisturizing co and had good results. Tonight I picked up NG Hemp Nourishing Co (for dry or frizzy hair, it says). Anyone tried this? Good or bad things to say about it? Here's the ingredients for it:

Water, Cetyl Alcohol, Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil, Stearalkonium Chloride, Pilocarpus Pennatifolius (Jaborandi) Leaf Extract, Ruscus Aculeatus (Butcher's Broom) Root Extract, Sambucus Nigra (Elder) Flower Extract, Hypericum Perforatum (St. John's Wort) Extract, Silybum Marianum (Milk Thistle) Ethyl Ester, Chrysanthemum Coccineum (Chrysanthemum) Flower Extract, Bertholletia Excelsa Borago Officinalis (Borage) Seed Oil, Orbignya Oleifera (Babassu) Seed Oil, Panthenol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Butylene Glycol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea, Fragrance, Caramel.


TIA

Yes, Hydrolyzed Keratin is a protein. Keratin is actually in human hair. Anything with "Hydrolyzed" in front of it is a protein.
