Default Protein Sensitive???

Hello, I am new to the boards. I have 3b/3c curls and was wondering how you can tell if you hair is protein sensitive and how exactly proteins affect hair? Also is protein present in any oils, such as shea butter? thanks!

Default Protein Sensitive

For me, I can tell when my hair is still wet and I'm already frizzing.

Protein dries me out beyond belief - my hair turns incredibly dry and it feels like hay. I go to an Aveda salon and have to bring my own products because of
1. the silicones/sulfates
2. too much protein in their products

I personally feel like my waves are much limper and less defined when I use a lot of protein.

Yeah Lucky Charm, that's how my hair gets with protein too!

My hair also feels like hay when I use protein. Also, instead of the normal spiral curls on the ends, my ends will frizz like crazy and when I look closely I can see that the individual hairs are bent in angles instead of spiraling.
