The majority of the products I’m using on my hair and using on a consistent basis don’t have any protein ingredients. For the ones that do I’ve tried to make sure that protein is further down the ingredient list. Like out of the top 10 so that the protein is there but less potent and less likely to cause protein overload again. You can see all of the products I'm using by visiting my hair regimen page.

Using products with moisturizing proteins

Yes, some proteins can help with adding or retaining moisture in our hair. Some of the proteins that fall on this list are Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein and Hydrolyzed Soy Protein. So the few products that I’m using with protein in the ingredient list more of than not have one of these types of proteins.
 

Staying away from protein treatments

I have nothing against protein treatments. I used to use them and had great results. But since my prior overuse of protein, I’m now wary of them and don’t think they’re currently necessary for my hair unless my hair has some major damage or moisture overload. I feel that using products with protein ingredients on a set schedule should be enough for now.
