Default Is Protein bad for you if you have a mixture of medium/coarse hair texture?

I have a mixture of medium and coarse hair texture. Is protein bad for it? I'm scared to try it but my hair has been so dry lately I just dont know what deep treatments to put in it.

I know all hair needs doses of protein, coarse hair sometimes doesn't play well. It's sort of touch and go with trying to figure out what your hair likes and doesn't like.

As for a DC, you can purchase one or make it at home.

You can use EVOO, some Tresemme Naturals, and some honey. Works well for me.

According to my curl profile my medium/coarse texture hair doesn't need much protein. I figured that out long before that!

You got a curl profile? I want one.

But does it say how often you should use protein?

How often do you use protein and what do you use when needed?

I don't remember if saying how often. I know that I don't use any conditioners that are protein, or keratin labeled. I also don't do homemade protein recipes.

My conditioners don't have protein in them and my hair doesn't seem to need it.

What's strange is that my hair does ok the LALSG which has protein in it, but the Quidad line with the wheat protein causes my hair to frizz and look like a cotton ball!
