Question Brewer's Yeast for protein?

Most things I've read have raved about it being an excellent source of concentrated protein.

I was thinking of doing IAGirl's protein treatment but with Brewer's Yeast instead of gelatin. Has anyone done this yet? Just curious...

Wow, interesting idea. The reason that gelatin is used in that recipe is because it is a hydrolyzed protein, so hypothetically the proteins are the right size to bond to the hair and fill in any gaps. Brewers years probably has some free amino acids, but it seems like it would be bigger proteins and possibly too big to hang on to hair. Autolysed yeast extract (used in flavoring foods and also in making agar media for culturing bacteria) would have the right sized proteins, but it's not handily right at your local grocery store. Maramite is autolysed yeast spread, a Maramite (or Vegemite) treatment would be the right sized proteins. This is sold in small dark jars in health food/natural food stores. Would not be good if your highlights are very light (it's dark brown). It smells like some sort of beef/vegetable/can't quite place it, broth.

It's worth a try (in my world, most things are). Who knows, it might be just the thing.

Let us know if you try it.

I got the idea from Elucence MBC using Brewer's Yeast. I think I'll give it a try soon. I'll update how it goes.
