FOTE Aloe or Olive Oil?

Mec1976Mec1976 Posts: 210Registered Users
I think I may be protein sensitive. I tried the GVP protein treatment & Ecostyler & my hair freaked!!

I'm still confused about protein & I'm wondering if FOTE Aloe or Olive oil are considered okay for protein sensitive hair.

Thanks ladies :)
Finally have a routine that works :toothy5:

Wash at night, add products, plop in a t-shirt overnight, then diffuse in the morning!! It is great finally getting to sleep in :sleepy2:

    I completely agree with Goin' Grey. I'm protein sensitive, and FOTE aloe vera gel made my hair a hard dry mess. But my hair loves olive oil.

    Glad it worked out for you. How did you do your olive oil treatment?

    I did a low-poo cleanse using Coloreese shampoo. Then I mix 1/3 cup warm olive oil with a few good squirts of the GVP conditioning balm. Worked into my damp hair, wrapped in plastic wrap and then wrapped in a warm towel. I left it on for about 3 hours. When I jumped back into the shower, I rinsed with cold water & a little more low-poo.

    My hair was silky smooth & the comb ran straight thru!! No hints of any tangles :)

    This is strange to me. My hair is very protein sensitive, but I don't seem to have problems with aloe. In fact, it's an ingredient I use with much success. What is it about aloe's make up that causes problems for people who are sensitive to protein?

    Aloe does have protein but maybe it's a protein your hair likes it. I noticed that my hair reacts to different proteins differently and maybe your hair likes the protein in aloe. Also, aloe can also be quite moisturizing and may be counteracting the protein effects.
