#1: does hair need to be clean bf pt?
I am experimenting with protein and I wonder if hair needs to be clean/clarified/or wet before protein can fill in the spots it is supposed to fill? I use a ton of conditioner and leave-in during the day so if I slathered a handful of NG conditioner (or K-pak, or another protein rich product) in my hair at night before bed - would the conditioner from the day stop the protein from really working? I co-wash each morning. I'm wondering if I'm wasting my product, time and extra laundry by putting protein stuff in my non-clean hair at night?
