Hi !!
Im going to change my products , and I bought the suave Coconut conditioner and it was awful , make my hair frizzy . I read that the conditioner has protein , its true ??

And if is , how to avoid them

thank u so much

Trying to be naturally curly
Protein sensitivity makes your hair feel dry and strawlike. Not sure you need to avoid protein. Suave conditioner isn't very moisturizing. Your hair might be "reaching out" for moisture (which is why it's frizzing.)

It really helps to know your hair properties. Best way to choose ingredients/products. It also allows folks to be able to help you. Here's a link to help you with yours Curly Hair Basics | Live Curly Live Free Once you determine your properties, you can look for others with similar hair and see what they use.

Couldn't find one for "curly hair." There was a natural one, too, but the ingredients were in a chart, so I couldn't copy them. I wouldn't use this product because of the Polyquaternium-10. iHerb doesn't have the "Yes To" products that are very popular drugstore type products. Maybe others can recommend some others that they use and are available there.
