creamy protein treatment?

My hair loves protein and currently I use Colorful Neutral Protein Filler from sally's. But I'm not crazy about the liquid consistency - I just can't seem to apply it evenly and then end up with uneven curl shrinkage. Any PTs out there with a gel or cream texture? Nothing too pricey though.

    Are you looking for a deep treatment or a protein leave in conditioner? If a treatment it doesn't matter if you are uneven with application.

    You could mix the Colorful neutral protein filler with a thick conditioner or make it into a gel with something like xanthan gum or spray it on if thin enough. Komaza Care protein strengthener is creamy now I believe.

    Thanks - CJ Repair Me going to be my next splurge hair product - been hearing amazing things about it despite the price.

    Right now, I'm using the tip to mix my Colorful Protein Filler with a creamy conditioner and finishing that off.
