I voted for my hair hates them. When I color I do a couple protein treatments within the first month or so but, after that I really try to stay away from them. When I use alot of proteins my hair feels brittle and strawlike. Yuck!!

ETA: An example would be when I tried Ouidad's products. My hair felt like this all the time and it took me a while to figure out why. When I stopped using them I realized my hair felt and looked much better. Over time and joining here and reading, I realized it had to be all of the proteins.
2b/3a, primarily use Jessicurl and DevaCurl products, Curls Hair Tea conditioner and various gels. I'm modified CG-ish since 5/04.
