As my hair grows out, my curls are starting to droop - especially after the first day. I thought it might be because of the stress of keeping my hair in a ponytail or braid pretty much all day, every day.

I've used conditioners with protein in the past, but they left my hair crunchy and I've avoided them since. I use oils to keep my hair soft (especially the ends), if that matters.

What do you think? Should I give protein another try since I'm using oils now?
