    I believe the collagen is a protein. And the paraben in product 2 means it is not CG friendly.
    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.

    Ah thanks, didn't know collagen was a protein. And I thought parabens weren't that bad?

    Any other proteins? I vaguely heard starch acete and hydroxyethylcellulose are proteins as well

    Actually, parabens are used as preservatives. Some believe they are unsafe and avoid them. Never heard that they aren't CG friendly.

    Good list of proteins: /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.curlynikki.com%2F2009%2F01%2Fproteins-humectants-and-conesoh-my.html%3Fm%3D1" class="Popup

    Some other ingredients behave like proteins or react with the protein in our hair so some watch for them, too: AVG and coconut, for example.

    I just double checked: CG book states to avoid parabens in gels but doesn't mention them as far as conditioner, aside from saying they are a preservative and controversial as some deem them as unsafe. So, I guess it depends on the product it's in as far as 'official' CG. My apologies for that questionable information - I should have looked first.
