Suave Naturals Conditioner (all except the coconut one!)
Tigi Bed Head Moisture Maniac Conditioner

If you know of any more protein free conditioners, please let me know and I'll add them to the list!

Aubrey HSR has Wheat Germ Oil which some protein sensitive heads might not like.

Also wanted to add Renpure Organics Argan Oil Luxurious Conditioner.

I have not tried it yet but I see no proteins or anything protein acting in the ingredients.

Thanks for this list...I really appreciate it as I am currently on the hunt here. A long time fan of Aubrey Organics, I have just tried out the protein-free white camellia-imbued one and am hating it. My hair feels like a grease-slick on top of having suffered the effects of a protein overload.

"WavesnWheels": overall, your list steers more toward the natural side which is where I am and have been ever since I can remember. So thank you--a lot. You reminded me of companies I had forgotten about, especially having lived in a foreign country for years now. But I have connections; I can order just about anything from back home in the States.

I've been using Tresemme Naturals Radiant Volume (I think it has protein). I've switched to using only Suave Naturals (no coconut!) exclusively as my cowash, rinse out, and leave in and my hair is LOVING IT!

Default Also silicone, paraben, and sulfate-free?

Are any of the conditioners on this list free of silicone, parabens, and sulfates, as well as protein?

My sweet curly girlfriend is looking for a conditioner that is free of all those things and I'd love to find one for her. Her hair is 2C/3A and very low porosity.

One possibility I've found is Karen's Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia Leave-In Conditioner. It has wheat germ oil but from what I've read hear that probably doesn't have much protein. But she's looking for a non-leave-in conditioner.

The original post is way out of date, I'd suggest doing your own research. There is a more up to date but shorter list over in the Sciencey Hairblog.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG, growing out mechanical and chemical damage = breakage and very high porosity. Past armpit length heading for waist.

CO-wash: Inecto coconut
Treatments: Komaza Matani, coconut oil, Hairveda Sitrinillah
Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss ultimate volume, Inecto argan
Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Boots Essentials gel
Experimenting with: going back to basics
