I've heard bad things about the Jane Carter. AG Recoil does contain a little protein but it's so far down the ingredients list I would guess there isn't much present.
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

I think the SM curl enhancing line is protein free, but beware it has coconut oil in it. For those whose hair is protein sensitive.

rinse out: CJ Repair Me, CJ Curl Rehab, CJ Smoothing

leave-in: SCE Curl Cream
jellies/creams: UFD's CM, CJ CCCC, SCE FSG

I tried mop c and it is fantastic. I would recommend it. If you have acne prone skin, keep an eye out. It really broke me out

Yikes!!! Bamboozled! It's the pink label. Sorry ladies the app I have misled me. I have the curl power app which lets me see the ingredients on the label clearly had these products mislabeled. I will complain about this. I said that the milk & smoothie were glycerin & protein free.
