How Do I Get Protein Out of My Hair?

So I am super sensitive to protein I'm finding out. I don't know if I always was or just never knew it. Anyway, my hair has been so much less tangly and crazy with ZERO protein; however, yesterday I accidentally tried a new product and my hair got brittle and gross! Ugh - it had protein and I didn't realize. I co-washed today with conditioning balm and used KCCC but how do I get protein out of my hair?

LOVES behentrimonium methosulfate
(don't ask me to pronounce that!)


Want to grow it long again!
And simply want to figure out this hair of mine!

    I don't think you can really get it out but do a DT to sort of counteract it. That has been effective for me.
    remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!! :read2:
    My hair:
    2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
    My routine:
    Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
    RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
    LI: KCKT or CJSL
    Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

    Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.

    Moisturize and wash your hair with a sulfate shampoo until your hair is normal again. This happens to me sometimes. That's how I fix it.

    I used Prell - which is super clarifying for me, and then I did a DT - so that seems to have helped.

    Sometimes our hair just needs a "restart". :)
