List of common proteins
Protein overload is very common - many people think they are using a deep moisture conditioner while it is actually loaded with proteins. Protein overload can mimick damage and causes "phantom" dryness. Thankfully it can be reversed without cutting.

Here's a list I found of some common proteins used in hair products. Feel free to add! :thumbleft:

Amino acids - alanine, arginine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glycine, glutamic acid, leucine, lysine, methionine, proline
Blue-green algea
Brewer's yeast (hops)
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed casein
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed collagen
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed hair keratin
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed keratin
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed rice protein
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed silk
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed soy protein
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed wheat protein
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl silk amino acids
Cocoyl hydrolyzed collagen
Cocoyl hydrolyzed keratin
Hydrolyzed keratin
Hydrolyzed oat flour

I believed vegetable protein refers to any non-animal food protein - soy, algae, kelp, grains, etc.

Please note all grain extracts are protein. The list provided is the most common proteins used in hair products, it isn't all inclusive.

Soy Milk, Egg protein, Milk protein, wheat germ extract/oil, horsetail, panthenol, niacin, & biotin (may act as proteins for some)?

OK, thanks. Hopefully not wheat. :-/

Wheat is used as a protein in hair products. :?

Yes, as a thickening agent and as a protein. It's on the list above.

I'm not sure if this is right, but I read that aloe vera products have protein in them.. Is that true? Some say aloe is very moisturizing but some say it acts as a protein.
