Tell me more about amino acids

I have read some threads lately on amino acids and I want to learn more. I would like to try a recipe I found on cherrylola's blog /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cherrylola.com%2F%3Fp%3D442" class="Popup
I know that amino acids are protein and I suspect I am somewhat protein sensitive. Would this be a bad thing for me to try? Anyone else try something like this? The results seem to be great but I may have different hair type. What do we know about amino acids and how they differ from other proteins??

Current HG routine: Tresemme Naturals conditioner; AG Fast Food LI; AG Recoil; CJ CIAB = no crunch, lots of body and awesome definition :thumbup:

    Amino acids make up protein, when chained together. Depending on the chain of amino acids, the type of protien changes. The following amino acids are in braggs.
    • Alanine
    • Arginine
    • Aspartic Acid
    • Glutamic Acid
    • Glycine
    • Histidine
    • Isoleucine
    • Leucine
    • Methionine
    • Phenylalanine
    • Proline
    • Serine
    • Threonine
    • Tyrosine
    • Valine
    • Lysin
    Are you sensitive to all proteins?

    I don't know, I don't think so. I have used proteins in conditioners like Suave Coconut and LVPNG and it has taken some time for me to notice negative results, but I have also used things like V05 hot oil treatments that made my hair feel like straw for a week. Mayo does the same thing to my hair.
