No Protein or Glycerin/Aloe

I think I'm going to avoid glycerin and aloe. I've been off protein for a while and my hair stopped falling out and stopped tangling. But now I am dealing with dryness/straw-hair/breakage due to something else - but I can't figure out what. It's happening with products with glycerin and/or aloe but I'm not sure if it's because of the low dew points or a real, actual sensitivity. Tonight my hair felt like it was *breaking off* b/c of HEBE ?? And same with the other day b/c of As I am + AOMM....

So I'm good with suave co-washes, and GVP Conditioning balm Condish/Ro but I need some more LI/Gel-styler options that are without glycerin/aloe/protein
The horesetail/nettle in KCCC seems to bother me. ANd IDK what in the HEBE bothered me - but it was pretty nasty!
3b/fine/normal porosity/normal elasticity

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!

    Wow....too bad. My hair doesn't like protein but really loves AOMMJ and really likes KCCC but my hair doesn't care too much for aloe vera.
