Protein spray? & other questions

If I wanted to add some protein to my okra gel, what would I add?

Is there any way to make a protein leave in spray?

Does beer contain protein small enough to be useful for hair?

I've spent the last week at the beach and my hair was AMAZING for the first 4 days after my 4 hour protein treatment. The past few days have been frizzy horror. LOL hoping if I add in more protein I can go a week or two between treatments.

Please help with ideas.... So far my treatments have been jello and yogurt. Or jello and conditioner.

    I know yours is an old post, but I see that you didn't get any responses.

    I don't think I'd want to add gelatin to okra gel, because the consistency would be pretty impossible to deal with. So I would use Colorful Neutral Protein Filler, which you can buy at Sally's in 1.2 or 4 oz. sizes.

    You can also add that to your refresher spray, if you want to. I'd just suggest starting with small amounts, so you don't end up overloading your hair.

    I wouldn't use beer. It's really not known as a great source of protein, and you'll just smell like stale beer.
    Peace,

    I second the Colorful Neutral Protein Filler - can be used as full PT or added to practically anything - LI, RO, DT to give it a protein boost.

    You said you were at the beach - was this a salt water beach? Sea salt is known to enhance curl, maybe this could be part of it as well?

    I add gelatin to my okra gel--one package to four cups of okra gel.
