Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose conditioner and White Camellia conditioner can go on the list. Their Rosa Mosqueta conditioner does not have protein either per se, but it has amino acids.
3b/c, fine hair, low porosity. Had dreadlocks for three years and combed them out a year ago. Currently letting my hair grow...
Thanks! I think I should add another category - "health food store/trader joe's". Do you agree?

It's not that protein is bad for hair - it's just that some of us find that products with protein in them make our hair feel dry and coarse. My personal take on it is that protein is great in intense reconstructive treatments if your hair is damaged, but it's not necessary for everyday use and winds up making hair feel dry (and in my case, look frizzy and unmanageable) if it's overused. But it's just a personal thing - there's no right or wrong to the protein situation.

sweetpeacali,

Thanks for the welcome and the info! I'll keep an eye out with the proteins. I would not have thought to look to the proteins if my hair started to feel dry, so that's really good to know.
You're the best for putting this up! Thanks. I think my daughter's hair doesn't like protein either. What about Tigi Moisture Maniac?
Barely wavy mommy to a fine, silky with thready corkscrew 4 1/2yr old girl. HG's Moisture Maniac, PM The Conditioner, Cactus leave-in (original formula)"Mommy I want to look like a lion!" = hair loose and flowin'.
can anyone think of gels that can be bought at wal-mart, because my mom won't let me buy online.
Is suave's biolage nock off any good?
