I hate to be the grumpy old troll here, but I'm going to offer housekeeping advice.
1. Don't bump your thirty minute old thread. Someone will get to it and you will get help, but may take some time. Chill.
2. I've seen a lot of your posts recently, and every one of them seems extremely urgent and frantic. I click on your profile and see that you've been here less than two weeks and have almost 100 posts. Relax. You will find the information you need sooner or later, and right now you're just irritating people.
3. Learn to use the search function. This isn't the first post of yours that asks questions we've seen umpteen times. Protein sensitivity is common; there are numerous threads talking about what it feels like and how to deal with it. Heck, there's a protein sensitive section of the board full of great information.
4. This particular post is way too vague for anyone to be able to offer you any real help. You think you're protein sensitive. But why. What products did you use? How did your hair react? We can't help if we don't know what's going on.

That's not what I meant at all. Just lay off the excess punctuation (!!!!!!/?????) and use the search function before you create a brand new thread that's a repeat. Welcome to the board, btw.

Don't be so hard on yourself! I am new to this as well and recently realized I am protein sensitive.

I have to say one thing that has really helped my hair is the flaxseed gel which you make on your own. I watched the youtube video on it and then went out to purchase the needed ingredients. I got the flaxseed at Target and the essential oils at a organic/herbal store.

The kneehighs didn't work for me (they ripped) so for my next batch I will use a metal strainer with very small holes.

Go to recipes section and you will find out information about making flaxseed gel.

Yay! I inspired you. I find that I like it thicker and after straining I put it back on the burner and boil it down more.

Have you tried both color seeds? There is a slight difference in the gel.

My first batch came out pretty thick - which my hair likes! I didn't know about the different color seeds. The ones I have are dark brown made by Bob's Red Mill.

I use the gel over Kinky Curly products - I think you do too, right?

I'm using the golden seeds now. I got to tell you I think I like the brown better. Either that or the damn weather changed on me and I can't get my hair right. Ah!
I use the FSG over a leave in condish. Other days I use the KCCC over the KCKT.

I just picked up some suave apple for my co wash I was using the coconut suave which has protein in it. And I was also using a giovanni co for my leave in that also had protein in it. I was wondering why my hair was so crispy and crunchy stiff! I glad I know now what was causing it :-)

Hot, humid, and steamy here in Florida as always. I just looked at the recipe again (this time on wiki) and it does say the golden seeds. I didn't even pay attention to that at all, as I didn't have a clue about flaxseeds. I just picked up the package at Target and off I went.

I am not an expert yet on reading the ingredients, but I am trying to figure out if coconut oil is good or bad for me. I did some reading about coconut oil this morning before showering to decide if I should use the conditioner with it or not. I ended up using it (curls sublime) and still not sure about it.

I'm not sure about it either!! My hair just doesn't feel right! It can be so frustrating finding things that work!
