Question about protein sensitivity and Vo5 Kiwi&Lime clarifiying condish

stormstorm Registered Users Posts: 204 Curl Neophyte
Soo i couldnt find the Vo5 Vanilla Mint and i just got the Vo5 Kiwi & Lime for co-washing..i use Tigi MM as a rinse-out(Silk amino acids)
. And didnt realize till i got home that the Kiwi and Lime had "Hydrolyzed Collagen" ..Thats a protein right.I used it just for a co-wash on the scalp and my fair felt really straw like right in the shower..though quite clean too.

.Ive tried a few things since i went CG and Suave naturals Coconut(silk amino acids) doesnt dry me out. Neither did the V05 Strawberries and Cream (Soy protein)for co-washing. ..

A few other protein heavy things did dry my hair out though(thought they had 'Cones too)

So Q1: Is it possible that im only sensitive to certain types of protein such as "Hydrolyzed ones" while i do fine with the Silk amino acids... Or do all types just add up to the same and this is just in my head?'

Q2: Have any of you who are protein sensitive had the straw like hair as a result of using the Vo5 as a co-wash?..and i mean just as a CO on the scalp..not the entire length as rinse out.

    I use the V05 conditioners for cowashes; I've tried a few scents now. The only one I've had a problem with is the Extra Body one, and that absolutely RAVAGED my hair with all the protein and it took two weeks for my hair to look normal again :( It has a lot of collagen in it. This is why I've never tried the Kiwi-lime - it has hydrolyzed collagen and I'm afraid I'd ahve the same effect. I don't know about the amino acids, but I know my hair can handle small doses of Keratin and that's about it. I've had good luck with the Vanilla Mint Tea, Grapefruit Mandarin Splash, and Free-Me Freesia (which has some keratin, but doesn't bother me).

    Hope that helped!

    I like Kiwi LIme VO5 and I never have p roblems with it, and I'mprotein sensitive. Yes, you can be sensitive to different types of protein. It's a trial and error thing to find out what works. Sorry it didn't work for you.
    That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

    I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.

    Another option would be the new scent in the tea therapy line blackberry sage tea. Its the best one in the VO5 line I have tried yet. No protein listed on my bottle.
