    Do you hate eggs, too? Haha.

    Um, anyway, I'm due for a protein treatment, so I'm going to try out this recipe in a few days:

    1/2 avocado
    2 tbs mayo
    1 tsp molasses
    1 tsp oil of choice

    A couple of other ingredients that are good for protein are:

    -Coconut milk
    -Yogurt (full fat if you can)

    That's all I've got for now. Hope I helped. =]

    Greek yoghurt might be a good choice if you want a high protein content DC, as it contains a higher level of protein than regular yoghurts (about 7-9% instead of about 3%).

    BTW, mayonnaise contains eggs.

    lol...i love to eat eggs, but i dont like slathering them on my head.

    Thanks for the ideas ladies! I might have to give them a shot.

    I just recently bought Nexxus Emergencee, havent tried it yet, maybe tonight I will. I'm really convinced that my hair likes protein, and I want to start incorporating it into my routine.

    I've noticed that many recipes for homemade PTs contain mayo. But I just looked at the nutrition label of the jar in my refrigerator. It's protein content is 0 g. So, what is the mayo doing exactly for the hair?

    I'm about to go slather some fat free greek yogurt on my hair to see if all that protein will help with the breakage I'm suffering. Wish me luck.
    Curl Type: 2b/2c
    Porosity: Normal
    Elasticity: Normal (I get breakage when I pre-poo and then when I shampoo it all out and then some more over the course of the next 24 hours.)
    Texture: Medium
