List of common proteins

LISA LISALISA LISA Posts: 566Registered Users
Protein overload is very common - many people think they are using a deep moisture conditioner while it is actually loaded with proteins. Protein overload can mimick damage and causes "phantom" dryness. Thankfully it can be reversed without cutting.

Here's a list I found of some common proteins used in hair products. Feel free to add! :thumbleft:

Amino acids - alanine, arginine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glycine, glutamic acid, leucine, lysine, methionine, proline
Blue-green algea
Brewer's yeast (hops)
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed casein
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed collagen
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed hair keratin
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed keratin
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed rice protein
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed silk
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed soy protein
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed wheat protein
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl silk amino acids
Cocoyl hydrolyzed collagen
Cocoyl hydrolyzed keratin
Elastin
Hydrolyzed keratin
Hydrolyzed oat flour
Hydrolyzed silk
Hydrolyzed silk protein
Hydrolyzed soy protein
Hydrolyzed wheat protein
Jojoba protein
Keratin
Keratin amino acids
Potassium cocoyl hydrolyzed collagen
Poly Beta 1-3 Glucopyranose (Saccharomyce Cerevisiae Extract)
Quinoa seed extract
Silk amino acids
Soy protein (glycine soja)
Soybean seed extract
TEA-cocoyl hydrolyzed collagen

    Woot! Thanks so much for compiling that, Lisa Lisa! I have cut and pasted to my blackberry notepad, so when I shop I can check the contents! :) how kind of you...:love1:
    Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
    S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
    My hair officially hates protein ;) Once a month is enough!
    Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay! :D
    BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!

    I believed vegetable protein refers to any non-animal food protein - soy, algae, kelp, grains, etc.

    Please note all grain extracts are protein. The list provided is the most common proteins used in hair products, it isn't all inclusive.
    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.

    LowP: Kinky Curly Come Clean (50% EVOO)
    NoP: As I Am CC
    RO: Suave Coconut, VO5 Shea Cashmere
    LI: KCKT or CJBCLI or HETT/HENOYF (w/ 8 drops GSO)

    Wheat is used as a protein in hair products. :?

    Yes, as a thickening agent and as a protein. It's on the list above.

    I'm not sure if this is right, but I read that aloe vera products have protein in them.. Is that true? Some say aloe is very moisturizing but some say it acts as a protein.
