While coarse hair doesn't usually care for protein, porous hair does. Also, most hair needs/wants more protein in the summer/higher dewpoints. Even people who are protein sensitive find that they can use some protein(s) in the summer. If what you're doing is working for you, then keep doing it.

A lot of us do rotate products, so can buy and try whatever you want--it feeds the inner pj in all of us, LOL!
