Default sulfate, 'cone and protein-free products [updated 10/12/2010!!]

I can't update the list here anymore - it's gotten too long!

The permanent spot will be: http://healthycurls.net

I'll keep the list updated, but please, I need help! Send any suggestions for products to add or remove to sweetpeacurli@gmail.com. I promise I'll check it regularly.

Thanks to all of you who have helped made the list into the monster it's become!

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.

Thanks! I think I should add another category - "health food store/trader joe's". Do you agree?

Yeah, I didn't know what category AO would go in, since I buy mine from the Vitamin Shoppe!

Default No Protein?

Hi - I'm new to the forums, so forgive my ignorance, but I thought protein was good for the hair. Can someone explain why it might not be? I understand the sulphates and silicones - but I just started using Curly Hair Solutions products and they tout the protein content as very beneficial.

Thanks

Hello and welcome!

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?
