Any recommendations for leave-in conditioners/stylers with protein?

I'm not sure if my hair likes protein, but so far it doesn't like when I DC it :-( Does anyone have any recommendations for products with protein? My hair gets weighed down very easily, so if I could use just one product with protein to moisturize and keep my hair from being frizzy when I come out of the shower that would be AWESOME! :D

    you can use your proteïn conditioner as a leave-in to (like curl junkie Repair me!). For gel, curl junkie curl queen has some proteïn in it.

    frizzyness can by the way be caused by many things... I'm not shure if proteïn will help you get rid of it. You hair can also be frizzy because of glycerin in low dews, or because you don't use humectants in high dews for example
    highlighted 3a hair. Fine strands, medium to high density. Probably high porosity. Growing uit bad layering and aiming for waist lenght!

    Pre-poo: coconut oil
    wash: CJ Daily fix or SheaMoisture Coconut&Hibiscus
    RO + LI: different every time
    Styler: CJ Pattern Pusha, CJ CIAB

    dislikes: glycerin in low dews, scissor happy stylists, magnesium sulfate

    I'm with etos on using a protein conditioner. For my leave-ins I just use my regular rinse out conditioners, most of which contain protein. I love using CJ Beauticurls Strengthening conditioner as a leave in, it's light and has a nice protein/moisture balance.

    I might try it. I'm just hesitant because most things sit on my hair and don't absorb since it's low porosity, and fine, which makes it weigh down as it is so the low porosity makes it very hard to find products for it that don't just sit on it and make it droop. :sad3:

    A little bit a heat from a diffuser to help your products adsorb should help...
