Does wheat germ oil count as a protein? I once used a treatment that had it high up on the ingredients list and it felt like a protein treatment-a heavy one at that. So I'm just curious, does it act like a protein?

The conditioner I'm currently using to co-wash with (CJ smoothing) has some near the bottom of the list, and that would be awesome if it is a protein because my hair loves protein in small doses.
