5 Conditioners for Protein Sensitive Hair
Share Button

For naturals who consider their hair sensitive to protein, the general advice in seeking out proteins in ingredient labels is to look for three main words

-amino acid (e.g silk amino acids)

-protein (e.g soy protein)

-hydrolysed/hydrolyzed (e.g hydrolyzed keratin)

This is generally a good guide, but sometimes it may not be easy to spot proteins for example Herbal Essences Hello Hydration and Aussie Moist both have glutamic acid which is an amino acid. Tresemme Naturals Nourishing conditioner contains lauroyl lysine and lysine is also an amino acid. Would you have thought any of these three products actually included protein elements?

Navigating through the aisles may not be easy, unless you can recognize amino acids by name. I therefore had a look around current ingredient labels of popular products and picked out 5 that are protein free*. Please always read the label of the product you purchase as manufacturers can switch up ingredients.

1. VO5 moisture milk – Strawberries and Cream

vO5 moisture milk

This a popular cheapie for many naturals to use for detangling. I have included it in the list as I think the ingredients label does not have any major protein sources. There is soy extract listed but this generally refers to some fatty acids rather than soy protein so I have given it the benefit of doubt. However, if you are not as willing to turn a blind eye, then eliminate it from your rotation should it be a problem

2. Jessicurl Deep Conditioning Treatment

This conditioner has a rich mix of oils in water and aloe juice. The ingredient label also has a soy extract but it is specified as soy lecithin which is in direct reference to the fatty acids I discussed previously. I have therefore more confidence in labeling this particular conditioner okay for protein sensitive hair.

3. Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner

aubrey organics honeysuckle

This is a firm favorite among many naturals and this particular conditioner from the Aubrey Organics range is protein free. It has a mix of mostly oils, some alcohol and water with a long list of fruit extracts.

4. Yes to Carrots Pampering conditioner

yes-to-carrots-conditioner

Based on the ingredients label, this is a pretty oil rich hair conditioner. It does have wheat germ oil which is quite different from wheat protein. Overall, I cannot see any protein or protein derivatives on this particular product.

5. Giovanni 50:50 Balanced Conditioner

giovani 50 50

Quite a few of the Giovanni range of conditioners contain hydrolyzed wheat protein e.g Giovanni Smooth as Silk. The 50:50 conditioner does list soy extract, but does not specify this as a protein therefore I am happy to suggest it as a possibility for protein sensitive naturals

*It is always possible to find trace amounts of protein in any product. The purpose of this list is just as a guide to products that do not have protein or protein derivatives on the bottle.

2. Jessicurl Deep Conditioning Treatment

jessicurl deep conditioning

I'm currently using this (I'm not protein sensitive though). I like it a lot. It's creamy texture is a good indicator of what it actually does, unlike Aubrey Organics HR. I find that the latter's texture is the stuff of dreams but when I put it on my hair, that doesn't actually translate into slip. I know it's a crowd pleaser but my hair is underwhelmed by it. I guess everyone's hair is different.


Edit: Made a mistake. I'm using the Too Shea extra moisturizing conditioner by JessiCurl. I need to try this!

Tatee!LOL

It was hard to do but I was so irritated that it did nothing for my hair that a regular bottle of bad conditioner couldn't do.
