If I recall correctly, Ouidad products have a decent amount of protein. Since you've bleached, you likely increased the porosity on your ends. They'll likely need more protein and more moisture than your unbleached hair. It may be that you're a bit protein overloaded, but that's not necessarily because your hair hates protein. It could be you just need more moisture too, to balance the increased protein you're giving your hair, or that you need to rotate between protein and moisture products.

But, should I also expect that maybe my hair doesn't like the protein either?
Most of the Ouidad products have 'cones.
