Protein 101

I'm still confused! Who needs protein? Who should stay away from it? Is it trial and error or is there a magic formula?

Thanks!

    Usually fine and/or porous hair likes/needs protein. My fine hair never met a protein it didn't like. I do at least one PT a week and use a lot of products with protein.

    Hi Sprocket, and welcome!

    Everyone's hair is different. Some need protein, some don't. You might have to experiment a bit.
