Co-wash rec's for protein sensitive hair

rapunzel4everrapunzel4ever Posts: 557Registered Users
Can anyone tell me what kind of co-washing products are good for my protein sensitive hair?

I would really like to try some Curl Junkie products (low-poo/co), but I don't know which one to choose. I would like to buy products I can use on a daily basis, so no DT's.

Also I would like to know if any of you protein sensitives have good experiences with the Jessicurl stuff?

TIA!

    I realize this is an old thread, but as I recently discovered my hair protein sensitive, I had to share my experience with a new CO wash.

    Went to the Dollar General last night and bought Suave Naturals in Green Apple (all the new formulas are supposed to be protein-free, I believe) and my hair looks and feels phenomenal today! I was previously using a keratin cream rinse for my CO, and I was battling some severe frizz. Today, my frizz is at a minimum. I will probably always battle some frizz during the humid summer months in the South, but hopefully this product continues to help keep my hair soft and moisturized! Definitely recommend trying the Suave Naturals. It was $1 for the bottle so you won't waste money if it doesn't work!
    Mostly 2c
    Medium Width, Low Porosity (unsure), and Med-High Density
    Frizz is a huge problem for me

    Routine currently undergoing maintenance.
    Low-Poo: PM Wild Ginger Awapuhi
    CO/RO: SN Coconut
    LI: GR Sleek & Shine
    Mousse: HETT
    Gel: HE Set Me Up
    Pomade: BedHead Manipulator
    DT: Aussie 3 Minute Miracle

    Hair Likes: moisture, pineappling, scrunching

    The Green Apple Suave Natural condish is my favorite co wash.

    Stay away from the Coconut if you are trying to avoid protein, that is the only one with protein.
    3A, Protein Senitive, Low Porosity,
    Med-Course
    Wash: Suave Naturals Conds (excluding Coconut), CVSB
    Rinse out/Leave In: GVP Cond. Balm, KCKT,
    Style: Naturelle Gel(winter HG), KCCC (summer HG), Flaxseed gel
    SOTC: JCNS

    Certain is a strong protein that readily adheres to hair .

    Thanks for the rec's! I'm using CJ Daily Fix these days and I'm okay with it as long as I don't leave it on my hair for too long (because of some protein in it).
    When I find the Suave Apple co. I'm going to try that as well.

    I like the CJ Daily Smoothing condish. It's a little heavier than other conditioners like Tresemme Naturals and Suave and V05 condishes.

    I love the Jessicurl Gentle Lather Shampoo. It doesn't make my scalp itch and it doesn't strip my hair!
    Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
    cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

    rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Beauticurls, CJ Smoothing

    jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC
    gels: CJ CQ, CJ Pattern Pusha, BRHG
