This thread was originally posted here: http://www.naturallycurly.com/curltalk/thin-thinning-hair/127403-cos-reconstructors-containing-keratin-fine-hair-needs.html but someone suggested I post it in the general section to get more response.

My purpose is to get the opinions of people with fine hair versus everyone and anyone since we have extra picky hair nutrition needs. But hey, anyone is free to weigh in! :)

My very fine hair is dull, and I want to change that by trying Keratin. Another reason I'm interested in using Keratin is because I straighten my hair occasionally, and the result looks like dry and fried. Keratin is known for adding shine and lessening frizz. Additionally, Keratin products seem to usually contain proteins, which is beneficial for fine hair. However, there are several reasons why I do not want a salon-done Keratin treatment. Instead, I'm thinking a simple product with Keratin may boost my shine and decrease the 'straw hair' effect.

That said, here's some products that I think may help. Note that they are NOT 'keratin treatments'. Instead, they are COs, deep COs, or sprays that happen to contain Keratin of some sort. I was careful to pick products that have keratin near the top of the ingredient list (that means there's a higher %age of that ingredient in the product).

If you have tried these, please give your review :) Click the links to view the product ingredients:
