I've been using protein (in different strengths) pretty much every time I shower now. I've been noticing a lot of breakage near my ends *sad face*. Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee has been my friend for holding things "together" and I apply it over top of UFDCM. Still experimenting to find a miracle worker to smooth over 2nd day hair. I have been using UFD in lower dews but it doesn't have enough hold on it's own now so I've been mixing it with a tiny dab of BRHG into it but I hate the texture afterwards.
