Couple questions about protein...

I did what I guess is a light protein treatment last night. I used one of those Henna and Placenta treatments (saw it in Walgreens and after the bull conversation I couldn't resist! LOL!). Anyway I used it last night and I don't know really how to interpret the results. My hair feels really nice and soft but it's kinda frizzy. But the curl is really nice and the ends feel much better. So I'm wondering if I should try a stronger protein treatment.

I haven't been doing much in the way of damage to my hair lately - very little heat and I'm only dying with Colorsilk every three months. I think my hair is porous and it's definitely coarse. Would it be beneficial to try a stronger protein treatment? Could I do damage to my hair if I don't really need it?

Any suggestions at all? Should I try a stronger treatment?

If you try a stronger treatment, like Nexxus Emergencee you will need to follow up right after in the same shower with a deep conditioner like Curlisto Deep Therapy Masque or your hair will end up like straw. Protein definitely perks up your curls, but if a strong dose is used, it absolutely needs a potent conditioner afterward. Good luck.

I did the homemade route, but decided I like the Nexxus protein treatments MUCH better. They have three:

Coarse hair does better with emollient rich products and light on protein.

thanks for the info ladies!! For some reason protein treatments scare me. I think I have some fear that I'll overload on it and then all my hair will break off. I'm not protein sensitive. something about it really makes me super cautious about using them. The results I got from the henna and placenta treatment were promising. The ends of my hair feel wonderful and over all my hair just feels...better. I still have quite a bit of frizz but I did a light treatment. I'll give it another try next week. I don't want to do too many protein treatments at one time. Thanks again for the information it gives me plenty to look into!
