Yes to conditioners...good for protein sensitive hair?

Has anyone with protein sensitivity had any problems with the Yes to.. conditioners?

I am thinking about trying them out, but I am protein sensitive so I want to make sure I don't cause a protein overload.

    Some are rich in cetyl esters which are waxy and may build up if exclusively co-washing.

    I have tried both Yes to Carrots and Yes to Cucumbers. Yes to Cucumbers wasn't very moisturizing, but it did help hold my hair color. I found Yes to Carrots to be similar to DevaCurl One Condition.

    I second Firefox7275 that cetyl esters can cause a waxy build up unless you a willing to low poo several times per week. So, I am using Yes to Carrots for shaving my legs and get great results!

    I love Yes to Blueberries. I agree Cucumbers isn't as great in the conditioning department. Never tried Carrots. Blueberries contains Lupine Amino Acids, but can't say I've ever felt the effects of protein in that, really. I don't necessarily believe in "protein sensitive", either your hair needs it right now or it doesn't. Doesn't mean it won't need it in 5 months. I think it's a great line, try it out. I haven't had any problems with cetyl esters, but of course I use a low poo a couple times a week, so that might be why.
