why is protein sometimes bad

I can't seem to find a straight answer on this...why do some people have such a problem with protein and their hair? How do you know if protein works for you or if it's causing problems...what are the "symtoms"
Your hair will get very dry & brittle My hair is VERY protein sensitive. I don't use any daily products w/ protein and only do a protein treatment once every two weeks. My hair just loves moisture moisture moisture!!
Say what you mean and mean what you say.
Hair with a coarse texture already has a lot of protein in it ... so adding more protein to it can sometimes cause a dry, wicked, frizzy mess. I don't know many people with coarse hair that have a whole lot of success with protein treatments or products with a lot of protein in them.

I have pretty fine hair, maybe that is why I have never noticed a problem with products containing protein.
My hair is fine and up until recently I didn't have a protein problem, in fact, I did a monthly protein treatment. But I went with a conditioner that contains keratin and my crown started to grizzle up and my hair felt dry and crackly.

Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.

Mostly 3A/Some 3B Thick/Dry/Colored/SL
