Answering a FAQ about protein. No, protein is not “bad” for natural hair. However, too much of a good thing will throw your hair off balance.
Wheat Protein: Strengthening/Moisture Retention
Oat: Moisture Retention (I have had issues with it when hydrolyzed though)
Soy: Moisture Retention/Strengthening
– Hydrolyzed proteins bind more to the hair fiber, which can contribute more to protein overload.
Just be sure to listen to your hair. If it feels hard, won’t accept moisture, and isn’t as pliable as it usually is, you may have protein overload.
