All time fave protein treatments? And best DT to use after?

Like Tree5Likes

I'm a newbie and was wondering what would be some CG approved PTs? I'm in desperate need to do some damage control.
This thread is all about CG protein treatments so if you read through you'll see a lot of great suggestions. A lot of people, including me, like Curl Junkie Repair Me. Good luck. You'll learn a lot here!

One more vote for IAgirl's gelatin recipe.

I also love the Spiral Solutions PT.
fine - low/normal porosity - medium density - normal elasticity.

Currently using:
Cowash: Cure Care diluted with water 1:1
RO: Cure Care, V05 Kiwi Lime
Styler: UFD CM (old formula), FSG + CNPF
PT: IAgirl's gelatine

Experimenting with: no guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, gelatin gel

Recent findings: my hair likes Cure Care diluted with water as a cowash; does NOT like guar h.c.!

I really like Curl Junkie Repair Me! It's both a PT and DT in one bottle. Works really well on my dry 3b curls.

I just tried IAgirl's gelatin PT. Love it! I will be doing this regularly. I'm hoping this will get my hair back to a healthier state.

IA girl's gelatin PT. No need for conditioning for me afterwards. Just water. Tomorrow I'm going to try homemade PT with hydrolyzed keratin.
