Default Protein conditioners?

I am starting to realize that my hair really loves protein. I've been using AO GBP most days that I condition with an occasional JCTS thrown in for good measure. I'm really liking the AO GBP but the PJ in me wants to know... what other good protein conditioners are out there?

I am also using the generic K-pak, but am looking for other alternatives for daily conditioning.

2A/3A/3B - ranges from weak waves on top to tight ringlets underneath. Fine texture, normal-high porosity, thin density.

Fave products:
Wash: Suave Naturals Coconut, some Abba sulfate free
Conditioner - JC Too Shea, AO GBP
Stylers - JC CC, JC RR, BSRHG

But I have a whole cabinet of other stuff to try out! LOL

I love the TIGI Oatmeal and Honey. I use it as my rinse out every time.

I'll be eager to see replies, too. I tried Nexxus Emergencee yesterday as a treatment for the first time after reading some reviews about it here. I already suspected my hair needed protein, and while I'm not sure what difference it has made (having only used it once), I certainly know it didn't make my hair unhappy. I think my hair would like some protein in its regular routine (which having just started this whole thing this week, is still a major work in progress, lol).

suave coconut

LPVG - I can't find the one without cones.
A lot of the curl creams do as well. I think CJ CCCC does.

Kenra Moisturizing conditioner works fine for me especially before and after color.
