Crece pelo, protein?

I just bought the shampoo, rinse and treatment. But I'm not really sure if there is protein in it or not. Does anyone know if there is protein in any of them, especially the treatment? If so that means I shouldn't use it as much, right?

    From my knowledge, it doesn't look like it has any protein at all. As far as I know (and Firefox is a lot more knowledgable on exact ingredients), you should look for a product that has hydrolised collagen in it. On another thread, Firefox recommended this conditioner called: Schwarskopf Gliss Kur Ultimate Volume Conditioner. It has a lot of protein in it. I don't know if you are in the States or not, but on Amazon it is priced at $11.99. Also there is this awesome PT that is very cheap you just have to make it yourself. Here is the link:

    It is easy to make. None of these are shampoos, but I am figuring that if you want protein to be effective, you are going to want to look for it in something that bonds, such as conditioner or an actual treatment.
    CG, High Porosity, Fine, Low Density, Medium Elasticity
    Suave, V05, GF Go clean gel, ACV rinses, CO, and Gelatine PT.

    Agree with Samanthacurlz no protein there, not much of anything really it's a basic everyday conditioner.
