I have trouble with silk protein, it broke my hair off in one big clump. It's not a wonder, because silk comes from pigs!! The link below supports this idea:

Silk is made from polyester, no wonder.

Of course my effects happened slowly, and so the effects were muted. If you lost hair from a lye relaxer, it would happen immediately in larger amounts

a protein allergy would never do that, and if you did you would see shedding. and also I regularly do protein treatments with both animal protein(egg) and yogurt. No issues. My conditioner also contains trace amount of protein. No problems.
