    I've heard bad things about the Jane Carter. AG Recoil does contain a little protein but it's so far down the ingredients list I would guess there isn't much present.
    2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG. Past bra strap length heading for waist.

    CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen
    Treatments: Komaza Care Matani, coconut/ sweet almond/ fractionated coconut oils, Hairveda Sitrinillah
    Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss Ultimate Volume, various Elvive
    Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Au Naturale styling gelee
    Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
    Experimenting with: benign neglect

    I think the SM curl enhancing line is protein free, but beware it has coconut oil in it. For those whose hair is protein sensitive.

    curlicious what label color is it? Are you talking about the one with the Smoothie? The Smoothie definitely has protein, I think the Milk might as well.
    Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
    cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

    rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Beauticurls, CJ Smoothing

    jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC
    gels: CJ CQ, CJ Pattern Pusha, BRHG

    I tried mop c and it is fantastic. I would recommend it. If you have acne prone skin, keep an eye out. It really broke me out:banghead:

E), camellia sinensis (green tea) leaf extract*, aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice*, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) extract*, chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract*, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) flower extract*, moringa pterygosperma seed extract, glycerin, guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, polyquaternium-10, citric acid, phenoxyethanol.

    Yikes!!! Bamboozled! It's the pink label. Sorry ladies the app I have misled me. I have the curl power app which lets me see the ingredients on the label clearly had these products mislabeled. I will complain about this. I said that the milk & smoothie were glycerin & protein free.
