Protein in jojoba oil???

Is there protein in jojoba oil?
oils aren't suppose to have protein but i've heard this oil could give you problems.
any one know anything about it?

what about other kinds of oils such as emu oil, sweet almond oil, etc?

i'm actually wondering if i am still very protein-sensitive
but i'm so afraid of trying it out again.
I am protein sensitive and jojoba oil does NOT work for me. I am not sure if it has protein.

Sweet almond oil works well for me.

thank you soooo much for that link.
that is really helpful.
i thought olive oil did not have protein.
my hair is alright with olive oil so far...

strange that sweet almond oil works for you even though
your protein sensitive. i guess i should just try out different things
and see what happens .
Hi sorry to butt in - just stumbled across this and have a question.

I tried out jojoba oil on my hair and experienced really bad breakage - is that due to proteins?

I had no idea at all why it happened and i just didnt use it again - but the breakage is still there sadly
Most oils have proteins but I think they work differently than the hydrolyzed proteins found in commercial hair care and are in really small amounts. Even flaxseed gel and oil has protein but it works well for many protein-sensitive curlies.

Curl Chemist talked about protein and oils and after some investigation concluded:

However, refined oils go through multiple steps of purification, including additional solvent extraction, filtration, and drying. For this reason, most of these oils used in cosmetics and personal care products should contain no more than trace amounts of protein, if any at all.

oh no, tilly28!!
that sounds awful!
what is the breakage like?
if you are protein sensitive it turns brittle so it might not be that.

thanks for your post, afrosheenqueen.
i had a feeling it'll only be a small amount .
This information is good to know since I just purchased jojoba oil over the weekend to replace my grapeseed oil. Hopefully I don't have any issues with it.
