how often to protien
how often should you use a protein treatment on your hair? I don't want to over do it, but my ends are a mess. no split ends, but dry and knotty.

As often or as infrequently as it needs it. The best thing to do is to perform a stretch test every time you get your hair wet and let that determine if you use products with protein that day or not.

You just have to test it out on your hair I guess. Everyone hair is different. Like I have to do a treatment every week or each time I wash my hair and my mom have hair like mines but need protein like once a month

Best thing you can do for dry, tangled ends is get a haircut. Only time my fine/low porosity hair tangles is when I use a ingredient it doesn't like.

You should also determine your hair properties. It really helps for choosing ingredients/products. Here's a link to help Live Curly Live Free - Curly Hair Basics

I do at least one PT a week and use a lot of products with protein.

I agree with my fellow curlies as often as needed. I do the PT in my siggy once a week and I also do a DC once a week to keep my hair balanced. And I always use heat with my conditioning treatments.
