    Your best bet is to go by how your hair feels. My hair has never gotten over-proteined (and believe me, I tried), so i use protein every day, but I know not everyone can do that. If your hair is dry, make sure that you're using moisturizing products (protein an moisture are not mutually exclusive).

    Unless it is hydrolysed keratin it won't penetrate the hair. How much is too much depends on the amount in the product and your specific hair properties.

    I wish people would give more info on this! I can't find much trying to google this specific question. Every1 on google thinks you are referring to keratin treatment's. BUT is it safe to use a keratin infused leave-in everyday???? I guess the answer until we actually find 1 will be 'watch your hair closely'...🙄
