Dear Mama,
Without driving you nuts, the traditional protein ingredients are not found in the product you are asking about. However sometimes natural extracs like the Sea extract, Kelp extract listed in the ingredients act like protein.

So as always, it comes down to testing on your hair. In my signature are protein free products (minus suave coconu condish which has silk protein).

Let me know how it goes.

You pointed something out that brought my attention. Kelp and sea extracts are one of the ingredients in Kinky Curly Knot Today - Leave in conditioner. This stuff makes my hair soft when rinsing only but when dry, nothing other then frizz. So, makes me this stuff is really a protein leave in.
3b/C with nicer curls on the bottom!
Hair: naturally very dry and VERY porous
hair seems to be moody.
Does not seem to like oils
Does not like protein or too much?
Does not like rich products

So, I ask myself. What does it like? That is the question, and I'm on a mission.
