Products with protein that didn't work for you..
 
How about a list of products that you have used that your hair didn't like?


1. LA Looks Sports Gel
2. Ecostyler

are 2 I can think of off the top of my head right now.. I used these for a while until I found out I was protein sensitive and my hair got like frizzy straw!

currlyQ4days 06-20-2010 06:28 PM

3. Giovanni Leave in Conditioner!

asianrunner 06-20-2010 06:37 PM

LALSG, Giovanni leave-in conditioner, Suave coconut conditioner

Lucky Charm 06-21-2010 06:58 AM

Suave coconut, Trader Joes Nourish Shampoo, the entire Ouidad line, and I cant use LALSG too much (every now and then is ok)

AmberBrown 07-01-2010 08:03 PM

Suave Coconut Condish
Giovanni Leave In
Sheamoisture Coconut/Hibiscus Smoothie (this was so promising at first! :'( )
Sheamoisture Hair Masque
lots of other products I can't remember at the moment. Why do I continue trying these things??!

ETA: oh gosh how could I forget the disaster that was Ecostyler?!

Though I'm really not protein sensitive, I can't use the GDLI (EWWW) or any Shea M.

kellygreen49 07-02-2010 04:24 PM

Giovanni Leave in Conditioner (oh god, straw)
VO5 Moisture Milks (soy protein)

roseannadana 07-10-2010 07:41 AM

Definitely Ecostyler. I tried it the other day and as my hair dried during the day, it got so big I thought one of us was going to have to leave my office. ;)

Lesson learned!

Suburbanbushbabe 07-10-2010 02:31 PM

Magick Botanicals conditioner for thinning hair (after 2 uses) and Trader Joe Nourish condish after a while (soy protein). I'm not really protein sensitive but since I do use conditioners that have a good moisture/protein balance, any reconstructor is going to throw my head out of whack -

anniemae 07-14-2010 02:14 PM

Giovanni Direct Leave In (my hair felt like straw from this)

Nexxus Emergencee Reconstructor (so much of my hair was all tangled and came out while I was rinsing it out plus it made my hair all frizzy)

ArcAngell has protein?!? I thought my hair disliked it! I know it's lurking in some of my products (and I know it's bad to cut it out all together) but it'd be good for me to learn what my hair DOES like. *reads ingredients*
Aqueous extracts of: Achilea millefolium, chamomilla recutita (matricaria), cymbopogon, schoenanthus, humulus lupulus (hops), melissa offcinalis (balm mint), rosmarinus offcinalis (rosemary), citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) peel, pvp/va copolymer, glycerin, PEG-7 glyceryl cocoate, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, acrylates/c10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, phenoxyethanol, methyldibromo glutaronitrile, sodium hydroxide, frangrance, red 40, yellow 5.

o.o I think I may need some help... haha Can anyone weigh in and look at my other product ingredients for protein?? It'd help so much.

Hi! I don't know about the rest of the products.. but as far as Deva I found out the other day has "humulus lupulus (hops)" and is considered a protein. That's why curlmart does not list it with "low protein". I don't know... I'm not ready to give up my One C... soooooooooo... I don't know LOL.

I did give up the Deva gels tho.. been making my own FSG for now!

My hair loves most of the deva products! I have never had a problem with the Angell, never tried ArcAngell. In fact Angell is my HG!

I switch off on condish from One C to L'Oreal Vive Pro Hydra Gloss Moisturizing Conditioner (yellow bottle). I shampoo with Devacurl No Poo.

My curl's kryptonite is wheat, soy and silk proteins.

FairlyCurly 07-21-2010 10:24 AM

I wanted to love Abba Pure Style Gel and Batia/Aleeza Gel but the protein did me in.

I don't have as much trouble w/ gels that have only silk protein.

Goin'Grey 07-21-2010 01:37 PM

I'm with flairwood
 
My hair seems to like the Silk Protein too, that's why I can use the Suave Coconut condish. But Wheat protein, as we say in Queens, ***etaboutit!

Goin'Grey 07-21-2010 01:38 PM

I was just saying...forgetaboutit! Nothing dirty.

aubin 07-22-2010 08:43 AM

Giovanni and Deva products instantly turned my hair to straw. I can use Ecostyler, Trader Joe's, and Suave Coconut sparingly - no more than once a month - and I'm okay. Tressemme Naturals I can use a little more often, but not everyday.

Are you referring to the Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque??? If so, I've been using it as a twist out creme and wondered why my curls have been so limp lately and the ends not so great. Is it the avocado oil in it that makes it a protein?

I give up..lol
