Whey Hair Mask

While at the gym, I spoke to a lady who works at GNC and she said that she uses a protein mix as a hair mask. Basically, she mixes the powder with a mashed banana or avocado, oil, and a little water or honey to make a paste. She mixes it by hand or with a blender. The mixture is placed on her head with a disposable plastic for about an hour.

She likes it better than using an egg, and says that it's better than a protein conditioner.

Has anyone tried using their protein drink as a PT?

    I know nothing about it, but my suspicion is that the proteins would be too large to be optimal. Most food proteins are.

    What about vegan pea protein based protein powder, like Kashi Chocolate ones?
