Hidden proteins

I am trying to go protein free and want to make sure I am not using proteins by mistake. I know the obvious, I think, protein, amino acids, soy, wheat germ?, anything with hydrolyzed in front, and maybe plant extracts. I am also looking for a good protein free, cg shampoo or low poo. Any product recommendations would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any help/advice.

Coconut milk and cream contains large amounts of protein and coconut oil can strengthen protein so you'll want to avoid these. jojoba oil is a wax that contains small amounts of protein. seaweed, sea algae, irish moss, carrageen moss, seamollient, and agar contain protein (think about all the things vegetarians eat to get protein).

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, but despite what others may believe, I'm not sure they are a bad thing. Amino acids need the golgi apparatus and RNA to turn into protein. These can only be found in living cells. There is no DNA/RNA in the hair shaft. (The only DNA found in hair is on the follicle which has skin cells attached. The DNA is actually in those skin cells.) When amino acids are consumed into the body, they are turned into protein by the living cells in us. However, amino acids cannot turn into protein in the hair because hair does not contain living cells. The potentially concerning issue with amino acids may be their hydrophyllic or hydrophobic nature. Some amino acids are hydrophyllic and some are hydrophobic. If you remember what the curl chemist says, hydrophyllic is good unless you live in a dry climate (think about humectants which are hydrophyllic). Many claim that amino acids may act like proteins, but I'm still up in the air about this claim also. The only amino acid that may be bad for protein sensitive hair is silk amino acid since some describe it as an actual protein. I'm not sure about this claim also and have to do some more reasearch. I've thought long and hard about this, had many discussions with my husband who used to teach biology. I'm still formulating my theory on amino acids (found in plant extracts) but so far they look okay.
