Default how often to protien

how often should you use a protein treatment on your hair? I don't want to over do it, but my ends are a mess. no split ends, but dry and knotty.

Thanks

As often or as infrequently as it needs it. The best thing to do is to perform a stretch test every time you get your hair wet and let that determine if you use products with protein that day or not.

My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
LI: KCKT or CJSL
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.

You just have to test it out on your hair I guess. Everyone hair is different. Like I have to do a treatment every week or each time I wash my hair and my mom have hair like mines but need protein like once a month

Best thing you can do for dry, tangled ends is get a haircut. Only time my fine/low porosity hair tangles is when I use a ingredient it doesn't like.

You should also determine your hair properties. It really helps for choosing ingredients/products. Here's a link to help Live Curly Live Free - Curly Hair Basics

I do at least one PT a week and use a lot of products with protein.

I agree with my fellow curlies as often as needed. I do the PT in my siggy once a week and I also do a DC once a week to keep my hair balanced. And I always use heat with my conditioning treatments.
