View Full Version : Non-protein users--working on that no protein conditioner list--need recommendations

My local grocery and drug stores think I'm crazy because I go to the hair care aisle, read all of the labels, and make lists. They are starting to suspect me of industrial espionage (or worse)--so keep me from being placed on the FBI's domestic terrorist lists and tell me what non-protein conditioners you use.

Currently the (very incomplete) list is residing in my hair journal (My Mermaid Hair), and as soon as it has more products on it, I will post it as a thread. Meantime, your contributions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

V05 Sun Kissed Raspberry and Tea Therapy do not have protein, two of my favorites.

L'Oreal Preference Color Care Supreme has no protein in it. It's a tube of conditioner that comes in the haircolor kit but since I don't color, I buy it from ebay. :grin:

You and me both, Shell! I spend hours going slowly up and down the aisles looking at ingredient lists. I'm a little more obvious in Walgreens than Wal-Mart, but I always get weird looks.

Last week, I was hunting "color protector" conditioners and sprays to see which UV protector (if any) they had. I settled on a Nexxus one. I get highlights a few times a year, and I ALWAYS am looking for something to keep the fading away. (Mine fades from blonde to reddish, and I want to get rid of the reddish at all costs).

Anyway, I have read that it's the sun mainly that causes fading, so I'm looking for sunscreen ingredients. (I think shampooing contributes to fading too, because since I started CO a few months ago, my fading has lessened.)

I'd like to help, but don't think I know the name of every form of protein that might be found in a conditioner.

Is there a list somewhere that I could print out and take with me shopping/searching?

I have the list in progress in my journal (post #9) and it also lists some key words to look for.

ladiosaRosa,

If you find any new ones to add, could you let me know? Also, if you do find that any of those on the list do contain protein could you also let me know? Thanks!

I love my Giovanni conditioners. Are they protein free? I can't use much protein, so if they do have protein, it couldn't be much. I like their lighter conditioners (like 50/50 or Smooth As Silk) better than their heavier ones.

I think Giovanni conditioners do have protein, but next time I'm at the health food store, I'll double check.

Golden Gal,

Maybe it's been long enough, they've forgotten me?

oooooooooooooooh! Thank you so much for this list! :flowers:

The VO5 extra body conditioner makes my hair very yuck--dry, frizzy, ratty. Collegen is a protein.

These aren't about hair, but they give little snippets of info about collegen:

Great thread!!!

ETA: I looked back in my hair journal. When I tried the VO5 extra body collegen conditioner great wads of my hair fell out. My hair does not like protein, and I remember it taking me several days of heavy pampering to get it back to normal.

Thank you! The idea for this list was born because I had a bad protein experience COing with protein Suave. It took almost two weeks, and a 1.5 inch trim to get it back to normal. I guess maybe the list is long enough to publish now. I think I'll spend some time double checking some of the products on it and make a new thread for it in the next few days. If you want to check it out, it's on #9 of my journal currently.

I don't use many different conditioners but the ones i use seem to have no Proteins......they are TresEmme Vit. B-12 and Gelatin Condish (has cones.) L'oreal Mega Moisture Nurturing Treatment Condish (has Cones.)


They are the only ones i use right now, have heard that some of the products of Paul Mitchell don't have protein but not sure until i read ingredients.....so cannot recommend.



HTH.

I would suspect that anything called "Gelatin" has protein, and also many things called "Nurturing" do too. But I'll keep them in mind and take a look at them next time I am perusing the shelves! Thanks for helping out.

This might help. It's a list of -cone/sulfate/protein free products The revised list is about a third of the way into the thread. I plan on using this list if I go shopping this weekend in Santa Fe.

Thank you, as I have said, many of the items on this list up to now have been submitted but not double checked, which is why it hasn't been published. I just need to get my act together and start checking. I will have mucho time to do this in a couple of weeks. I really appreciate all of your help!
