BRHG and too much protein

JessiiLeighhJessiiLeighh Posts: 195Registered Users
Hey everyone,

For those of you who have used BRHG, I was wondering if the silk protein in it has tipped the moisture balance or caused some issues. Did you find you needed to deep condition more or skip using it because of the protein? I have no issues with protein, but my rinse out conditioner has protein in it, and I am a little worried about it causing problems like making my ends dry out/break off. I already ordered a bottle before this crossed my mind, so I'm just looking for some feedback. Thanks in advance!

    Silk proteins are one of the more easily tolerated proteins (along with keratin), even for people with protein-sensitive hair. Silk amino acids are used to make hair softer.

    I know this thread is over a year old, but I was wondering if anyone else has been experiencing dry ends when using BRHG? I have been it as the final step over CJ BC Leave-in, sealing with Mineral Oil and UFDCM all scrunched into soaking wet hair. Today I'm going to try adding a curl creme on top of my leave-in. Or should I do it after the Leave-in, like LOC? Any thoughts besides finding another hard hold gel without propylene glycol?
