Does my hair love or hate protein?
I just jumped from the high porosity section after finding a post about how to tell if your hair has high or low. I was able to run my finger from the end to the root no problems. im sure if i had the right tools i could play a note with my strands of hair like a violin lol.
Anyways I got to thinking which hair products I have used in the past that my hair loved and the only ones were the Profectiv line. I used the pink, yellow and green canisters. My hair was relaxed at the time but it was the only product that kept my hair moist and the softest it has ever been. I also did not experience excess oil buildup, or flakes or any nastiness. It seemed like my hair ate it and loved it.
So after searching hours for the product (I forgot the name) and then more hours finding a site that would list the ingredients, I was hoping if I posted the ingredients maybe you all could tell me why my hair likes the product. I am thinking maybe a lack of protein or a whole lot of protein, or maybe not protein at all but something else.
If I can pinpoint why my hair likes this product Ill either start buying the product or buying alternatives.
