    Default How can you tell if your shampoo/conditioner has protein in it?

    I've seen people on here writing about protein in their hair products, but I don't know if my hair products have protein in them! How can I tell?

    Good question!

    This is something I would like to know too, as I have started to think protein may no to be good for my hair as for example egg treatment made my hair dry and fizzy.. so protein is something I should probably steel clear of..

    I think that if the product claims to strengthen your hair it usually contains protein.

    Anything that says 'hydrolyzed' is probably protein on the ingredient list. Ditto if there is wheat, silk or keratin on the list

    This is all good to know because Im pretty sure my hair does not like protein either at least from what I can tell. So for now I would like to stay away from it because my hair tends to revolt if protein is anywhere near it!

    It's good to have one conditioner on hand that has protein to use as needed, but for me I really don't like using it every time. It's hard as heck though finding even a shampoo without stupid protein in it!

    It's pretty easy. Read the ingredients list.
