Flaxen recommends low-sodium soy sauce. (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showpost.php?p=1068792&postcount=5)

Some people have hair that loves protein, some people have hair that hates it, and many can take it only in limited quantities. Hair that desperately needs protein tends to feel overly stretchy or mushy, while hair that has too much protein tends to break without stretching -- it tends to feel a bit rough when you run your fingers down it and tends to kink at the ends. Both can feel dry and both can be tangly, but in different ways.

Follow up any protein treatment with something moisturizing, right away. I recommend SMTs for moisture, as they're fantastically effective for most people, but let your own experiences guide you.
