Colorful Neutral Protein Filler

Sold at Sally's Beauty (and online), Colorful Neutral Protein Filler is keratin protein and wheat protein plus a few other ingredients.
It's a liquid, very water-like which you can add to FSG, gels, conditioners or even use straight out of the bottle.

In FSG, 3/4 to 1 teaspoon per cup of FSG is a good dose.

It's cheap and can add a nice protein punch to an otherwise satisfactory product.

Something protein-loving hair's owners should definitely know about!

Amazing - I was about to start a thread asking how people are using it. I bought some a while back and it's still languishing in the cabinet. In the thread about your PT, you had mentioned making a protein spray with it (something like SS?). Have you or anyone else tried this? What would you suggest in the way of proportions and additions? TIA!

I put the protein filler right into a spray bottle! I spray it on damp hair out of the shower before styling, and sometimes I use it as a refresher on dry hair.

I'm almost out of my CNPF and I bought the bigger bottle! It's ok tho, I've got the SS protein spray I can substitute for now since I'm not using it.

Will it help post-color, too?

I'm having a bit of an issue.
My understanding is that using a PT after your color your hair will fade the color. I'm not 100% sure why. Water pulls out dye because hair dyes are water soluble (reds are the most water-soluble). Protein is hygroscopic (water-attracting) so maybe that's part of it.

Protein pre-coloring is supposed to help color "take."

Everything I've read says to wait a bit - like 10 days before you do a PT.

My wimpy, ridiculously fine hair loves Neutral Protein Filler! Just using a few drops added to my conditioner on a pretty regular basis makes a hugh difference to my hair.

I need to make sure it's well mixed in. The last time I used it, more came out than expected (new bottle), and between that and the large amount of conditioner already in my hand, I didn't get it as thoroughly mixed as I normally would. Since then, when my hair has finished drying, the side that got more of the NPF has appeared about an inch shorter than the other. I've got to get more on the side of my non-dominant hand next time.

Or is this a sign that I need to do a more intensive PT all over my head?
Peace,

And ninja, you're changing your avi like Cher changes costumes. It's so confusing!!! XD

I add some to my GTTTT shampoo. Between using it a couple of times each week and using the Ion Reconstructor, I am definitely noticing a stronger wave/curl pattern to my hair.

bluesheep, I always change my avvie. It's rare for me to have the same one for more than a day.

I used the Protein Filler to fix a bad (re: uneven) dye job. I redyed immediately, using the product for its original use. It improved things about 85 to 90 per cent. So: bad dye job on Friday; fix w/ filler & re-dye on Saturday.

OT: love your ever changing avi. Keeps us entertained.

Thanks, IA. I know bluesheep didn't mean to be critical. And I love her sock monkey.

I can't say it's 100 per cent improved, but it's a lot better than it was, fortunately. Next time I'm using the red version on the lighter part of my hair which isn't taking the usual penny color (what I am naturally) well. Not sure how I'll separate the sections (I have a shag), but as always, it's an interesting, if highly imprecise, process. (I am soaking it in Ion Repair Deep Conditioner as I write, btw.)

Suggestions for effective separation welcome! Foil?
