Default Any recommendations for leave-in conditioners/stylers with protein?

I'm not sure if my hair likes protein, but so far it doesn't like when I DC it Does anyone have any recommendations for products with protein? My hair gets weighed down very easily, so if I could use just one product with protein to moisturize and keep my hair from being frizzy when I come out of the shower that would be AWESOME!

you can use your prote´n conditioner as a leave-in to (like curl junkie Repair me!). For gel, curl junkie curl queen has some prote´n in it.

frizzyness can by the way be caused by many things... I'm not shure if prote´n will help you get rid of it. You hair can also be frizzy because of glycerin in low dews, or because you don't use humectants in high dews for example

I'm with etos on using a protein conditioner. For my leave-ins I just use my regular rinse out conditioners, most of which contain protein. I love using CJ Beauticurls Strengthening conditioner as a leave in, it's light and has a nice protein/moisture balance.

I might try it. I'm just hesitant because most things sit on my hair and don't absorb since it's low porosity, and fine, which makes it weigh down as it is so the low porosity makes it very hard to find products for it that don't just sit on it and make it droop.

A little bit a heat from a diffuser to help your products adsorb should help...

I was gonna mention Giovanni direct leave-in. I made a eco custard gel. I used olive oil eco styler gel, coconut oil and aloe Vera gel. This is a great protien styler.
