Curl Junkie Repair Me! - the best.
Aubrey GPB - good mix of protein and moisture, makes a great DC
Natures Gate Biotin - a surprise find, has enough protein to stop breakage.. which says alot for my hair, I use it as an "emergency cowash" & it does the trick!

I like Giovanni Root 66 - Directional Root Lifting Spray. It didn't work so well as a root lifter, but it's a great for an all over protein boost. It has a water soluble cone in it.

I must add CJ Beaticurls Strengthening Conditioner. I've been using this for the last month as a rinse out and my hair just loves this. I don't have to use alot and it detangles beautifully...leaves my hair soft and smoothe but not weighed down. Keratin is definately my hair's favorite protein and Curl Junkie ain't nothin but da bomb!

I tried yogurt for the first time and I really like it. I kept hearing about it but seeing Naptural85's video really sold me.

Quidad Botanical Boost. Loaded with protein (a few different proteins) and moisture. I could use it instead of conditioner for my fine waves. A great quick shot of protein, good for SOTC-ing or detangling or as a leave-in, no cones or heavy stuff and doesn't make me itch!
I have a sample bottle. The scent is light. It's not cheap, but I think the big bottle would last a very long time.

Sally's GVP Joico K-Pak is a staple for me for DTs. I liked the Joico stuff, but love saving $ more.

Love the Aubrey GPB conditioner! I get mine at Whole Foods because they have 2 different scents supposedly sold only at WF. I don't like the scent of the regular GPB; reminds me of athlete's foot cream.

I swapped for CJ Repair Me, but have not yet tried it. Sounds like it's a real treat!

I'll be looking for this! Thanks

Any other gel/stylers without glycerin that you nice folks can recommend?

iHerb.com has AO GPB in scents, like whole foods does. Coupon codes for $5 off are all over the forums, free shipping over $20 and their prices are great too.

I currently use this it's in my siggie There definitely is no shortage of conditioners with protein. I was hoping to find some more gels/stylers that contain protein as this Winter my hair can't seem to get enough.

I've been using the ION Effective Care protein treatment from Sally's and it's done great things for my hair. I've noticed more curl/ my hair feels thicker and it adds shine. It's also not expensive - I bought the bottle, rather than the individual packs and it will last for awhile. I also use a co-wash with protein (Suave Naturals Coconut) and some gels with protein. My hair is addicted to protein!!!

what gels are you using that have protein? The ones in your siggie are all protein free.

I guess the LA Looks Sports gel is the only one I use that has protein (but I don't use it as often as the others). I guess that the regular protein treatments seem to keep my hair at a good level. I do the treatments weekly and that seems to work well for me. I'll keep watching for other protein styling product recommendations as you hear from others.

Oh right the LA Looks is protein heavy, it's also glycerin heavy and I'm glyc. sensitive during the winter months. I may give it a 2nd try though, maybe the protein will off-set the unwanted heavy/straight haired symptoms I get from Glyc. Thanks!

Sounds like you are further ahead at knowing what works for you than I am. I've been on this site for maybe 5 months and am still learning. I like the Pure Clean gel (Fructis) and it contains glycerine. I know that I get great curl from it so maybe my hair can handle that ingredient. I'm pretty sure that a humectant like glycerine would not be the reason for the increase in curl, it has to be another ingredient that causes it.

The GF C&P gel works well for me - but mainly in clumping.

My hair LOOOOVES proteins. Today I used sauve coconut as a co-wash, then GVP K-Pak, then LALS! And my LI (SM condish) has protein, too!

I also use Aigirl's gelatin treatment, and want to try Colorful protein filler from Sally's, too!

fine bleached 2a/3b hair that doesn't actually curl, it's just like an S shape that just gets tighter. sometimes some of it curls underneath though.

There's a treatment described in this thread: http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlta...-*-pics-*.html My hair liked the treatment (reducing the baking soda to almost nothing.) I couldn't stand my hair smelling like sour milk and teriyaki marinade all day.

My hair absolutely hated Greek yoghurt but absolutely loves black eco! Anyone else love black eco?
