I just found out I am normal porosity. Tiffany suggested I use protein conditioners every third time. But I'm not really sure how to know which products have protein and which don't. Obviously, if it says protein on the bottle or in the ingredients I know it does, but are there some products that could have protein without it saying on the bottle?

Anyway, this is what I know about proteins (and it might not be all-encompassing):

if it says "hydrolyzed" it's probably a protein
if it says "amino acid" it's probably a protein
if it says "keratin" it's probably a protein.

HTH! Hopefully someone else will be able to tell you more.

Normal porosity, low elasticity, medium texture

(according to CurlGenie - HUGE surprise, I always thought I had fine hair and my stylists always agreed)

Tried CG for a summer, but it wasn't for me. I don't load up on sulfates and silicones, but I have no shame in using them when I want/need to! Currently loving LOOB.
