    Tresemme just came out with one. It's called rituals I think. I has a whole lot of protein and smells pretty good. I haven't tried it yet but anything with protein is okay in my book

    Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.

    cool .. I've tried several different conditioners but always *seem* to be able to smell stirfry. Psycho-symantic I'm sure. haha

    Has anyone decided if the Tressemme Rituals line is CG? I'm not very good at decifering it all. It looks like a great line and I love that it SHOULD be available lots of places? Anyone use any of it?

    Unfortunately, it is not CG. Neither is their new split end repair line.

    I was looking at the Nature's Gate conditioners the other day and curious to try them, but had no idea which one to pick. Is there a particular one that's better for protein-craving hair? Or fine hair?
    Wavy, fine, thick.

    Low Poo: Organix Shea Butter
    Moisturizing Conditioner (only on shampoo days): Tresseme Naturals Nourishing Moisture
    Co-wash: Tresseme Naturals Radiant Volume
    Methods: Co-wash daily or every other day. Low-poo and moisturizing condition once every 3-4 days. Comb through once and air-dry.

    From what I've seen, all of their conditioners have hydrolyzed soy protein and hydrolyzed vegetable protein, both of which are great for protein-craving hair.

    I also had a look at their website and the Awapuhi volumizing condish, the biotin strengthening condish, and the lemongrass and clary sage volumizing condish seem to be best for fine hair

    I can't speak on all the NG conditioners, but I have the Hemp nourishing for dry hair and there's no protein in that one at all. I don't think the Aloe one does with. But I love the smell of the pomegranate and sunflower conditioner and that does have the soy protein and vegetable protein in it. I guess the best thing to do would be to check the ingredients of the one you like to make sure since they don't all have protein.

    It does!? Yay! Which ingredient is the protein? I have a bottle in my shower right now, but nothing on the label says protein or amino acids. Those are the only two things I know to check for. Here's the ingredient list for the hemp conditioner:

    Ingredients: Water, Cetyl Alcohol, Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil, Stearalkonium Chloride, Pilocarpus Pennatifolius (Jaborandi) Leaf Extract, Ruscus Aculeatus (Butcher's Broom) Root Extract, Sambucus Nigra (Elder Flower Extract), Hypericum Perforatum (St. John's Wort) Extract, Silybum Marianum (Milk Thistle) Ethyl Ester, Chrysanthemum Coccineum (Chrysanthemum) Flower Extract, Bertholletia Excelsa (Brazil Nut) Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Borago Officinalis (Borage) Seed Oil, Orbignya Oleifera (Babassu) Seed Oil, Panthenol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Butylene Glycol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea, Fragrance Caramel.

    Hopefully someone can clue me in here because my hair LOVES protein and I would love to find something else to look for in my products!!

    Thanks for all the suggestions curlies!

    Mill Creek Keratin & Biotin, and Nature's Gate Biotin are next on my list!

    +1 for Colorful Neutral Protein Filler! You can add to a cheapie condish like Suave Naturals Coconut. The Suave N. Coconut already has amino acids in it, but that may not be enough for those seeking a stronger protein condish... if you add the CN Protein Filler to it that can take care of your needs. :)
