Help.....Protein reaction or what?

Ok I am wearing the helmet today for not following my instincts.

I do not not normally use a protein DT. I decided against my better judgement (gut feeling) to try Ion repair solutions Effective Care Treatment.
Which has effectively turned my hair into a mass of Poufy, Fuzzy, Frizzy mass of something that resembles human hair.

What do I do now? besides staying away from protein...

Ok, I also tried this after destroying my hair, chemically. Bad scene, I know. I wish I could offer advice beyond piling in the butters and oils and thick, rich conditioners, but alas, that plus about 2 weeks, was all that worked for me.

Oh, and pony tails.

It *does* get better, though. You just have to be patient.
I don't know much about the Ion Repair Solutions but I'm not sure if protein was your only culprit. Protein sensitivity usually results in straw like, dry, brittle hair. Maybe try a low poo, your reg. conditioner and an acv rinse?

Did you follow-up your protein treatment with a deep treatment (pure moisture)? If not, it can result in exactly the symptoms you describe.

Do a DT - it should help. :-)

+1 to following up a protein treatment with a deep conditioning

What were the ingredients to the PT. I found the following 2 products. Not sure if they are the same as what you used. you could have had a probelm with the highlighted ingredients.

effective care intensive therapy
WATER ,CETYL ALCOHOL ,STEARYL ALCOHOL ,DICETYLDIMONIUM CHLORIDE ,STEARALKONIUM CHLORIDE ,HYDROLYZED VEGETABLE PROTEIN ,DISTEARYLDIMONIUM CHLORIDE ,STEARAMINE OXIDE ,PEG-5 SOY STEROL ,LECITHIN ,FRAGRANCE ,LAURETH-12 ,GLYCERYL STEARATE ,PEG-100 STEARATE ,CETEARYL ALCOHOL ,METHYLPARABEN ,PANTHENOL ,CITRIC ACID ,METHYLCHLOROISOTHIAZOLINONE ,METHYLISOTHIAZOLINONE

ion reconstructor
WATER ,DISODIUM COCOAMPHODIPROPIONATE ,PROPYLENE GLYCOL ,LECITHIN ,POLYQUATERNIUM-10 ,MAGNESIUM SULFATE ,METHYLPARABEN ,COCAMIDOPROPYL BETAINE ,GLYCOL STEARATE ,CITRIC ACID ,FRAGRANCE ,IMIDAZOLIDINYL UREA ,ZINC CHLORIDE ,MANGANESE CHLORIDE ,POLYSORBATE 20 ,TRICLOSAN ,CARAMEL ,YELLOW 5 ,PANTHENOL ,HYDROLYZED KERATIN

I think proteins will make your hair rough and straw like if you are sensitive to it, but I also believe it will make your hair frizzy if you don't use enough moisture afterwards.

In general unless your hair loves protein, I would stay away from the hydrolyzed ones. Hydrolyzed proteins are proteins that have been broken down into smaller chains so they penetrate the hair more easily. Proteins are usually long stiff chains so I look at this way, if it's too big less protein will get in; if its small then tons will find its way into my hair. So IMO hydrolyzed proteins are stronger because more can get into your hair to shore it up and strengthen your hair. This is not necessarily a bad thing unless you are protein sensitive.
