Hydrolysed Algin.

What exactly is this? I use yes to cucumbers shampoo and conditioner and the shampoo has it. From what I've read it isn't a protein. I am thrown off by the word hydrolysed...oh dear :P

    I found some info on www.dermalinstitute.com. It sounds like it's an algae/seaweed derivative and its a humectant that is used as a conditioning agent and helps regulate sebum levels when combined with zinc sulfate. I just got that based on a Google search. Doesn't sound like it should be harmful to your hair.

    PT: My hair needs very little. I use Suave Naturals Coconut when I need a little bit and follow up with a moisturizing conditioner.

    Thank you kindly! I just wanted to double check it wasn't a protein.

    No problem! I know how you feel, I have to be very careful with proteins, too. ☺️
