I just read this on that link:

It is also important to remember that, although the above is a great general guideline, there are always exceptions to the rule sometimes; for example, a coarse-haired girl has a lot of structural damage from repeated flat-ironing or chlorine exposure and could benefit from a good protein reconstruction. Always let the condition of your hair be your guide as well as the facts of good hair science!

So maybe because ive been coloring my hair, that i do ok with the protein? PLUS - my hair is about 50% gray......that changes the texture also......

I might try a new shampoo without protein and see how it goes....
