Anyone become protein sensitive after going CG?

I'm curious on this. I never had a problem with protein back then. My curls never went limp even with the dryness and breakage. Anyone know? Could it been the silicone making the protein not absorb? But then again when I used Joico kpack it took a week for my hair to get more dry and for the strands to thin out a bit.

Sent from my SGH-T999L using CurlTalk App

RO/LI: Tresseme Naturals, Oyin hair dew
PT/DT: Ion repair solutions, my own concoction

STYLER: LA Looks nutra curl & AVJ spritz

My disabilities don't change who I am.

    My curls have the same characteristics as yours, i actually not sure if I'm protein sensitive or not. When I detangle my hair with a protein conditioner its difficult but after, i see that my hair start to look more shiny and a lil bit more healthy. So Im thinking about using protein products 1 or 2 times a month maximum.

    Same here, I think I'm protein sensitive. I am going to try to eliminate products with silicone and go protein free and see how it goes. My strands are definitely thinner
    3b/C with nicer curls on the bottom!
    Hair: naturally very dry and VERY porous
    hair seems to be moody.
    Does not seem to like oils
    Does not like protein or too much?
    Does not like rich products

    So, I ask myself. What does it like? That is the question, and I'm on a mission.
