Contrary to popular belief, just because I’ve got coily hair doesn’t mean I’ve got coarse hair. In fact, my strands are the exact opposite: super fine! As a result, I rely on protein hair treatments including conditioners, moisturizers and stylers to fortify and nourish my strands leaving me with plump, defined curls. I like to deep condition with a protein conditioner and a super deep treatment once a month. Some of my favorite stylers pack a protein punch too! Here’s a round up of my favorites!
Curl Junkie Repair Me! Reconstructive Hair Treatment
Thick, creamy and protein rich, Repair Me is everything I love in a protein conditioner! Because it is infused with keratin amino acids, this heavy-duty protein conditioner is my go-to for my once-a-month super deep treatments.

I had heard the buzz about Darcy's Botanicals Pumpkin Seed Moisturizing Conditioner for years before giving it a whirl myself, but once I did I immediately saw what everyone was talking about! With amazing slip and an even more amazing smell, this is a great daily conditioner and can even be used for detangling.

Aubrey Organics Glycogen Protein Balancing Conditioner
Aubrey Organics Glycogen Protein Balancing Conditioner is the one protein conditioner that I can get on the ground, so when I’m traveling and in need of a protein fix, I always hit up my local health food store to grab this one!
Hair Rules Curly Whip
How do I love Hair Rules Curly Whip? Let me count the ways! First of all, it's a 3-in-1 styler meaning you can just use it with out a leave in or a sealer and BAM your curls are ready to go! It’s a gel creme which means that it has the moisture of a cream and the hold of a gel, PLUS it’s enriched with protein which helps to clump my curls together for amazing definition.
