Does dry, brittle hair automatically mean protein overload?

I recently bought a protein treatment to help with my excessive breakage but I don't want to use it, if it's only going to make my hair drier. Is there a difference between having normal dryness and dryness caused by protein overload?

I think if you use a protein treatment and your hair feel sradically different, then that protein treatment either needs to be balanced out with a moisturising deep conditioner right afterwards, or it doesn't agree with your hair.If you haven't been using protein products, overload shouldn't be a problem. From my experience, you should ALWAYS follow a protein treatment with a moisturising conditioner. Tresemme does good moisturising conditioner. And if you put some oil on your head before applying the conditioner, that helps too. Any oil of your choice is fine.
