    Thanks for the feedback — Quinoa is a new protein for me, but it seems “safe” enough for my protein-sensitive hair to give it a try.

    I can only use strengthening proteins on my hair *very* infrequently. As far as you know, is hydrolyzed quinoa protein (which is in the Organicals Deep Conditioning Creme) a softening protein that people with protein-sensitive hair like myself can use without problems, or is it a strengthening protein? What I’ve been able to find out about quinoa protein on my own makes it sound like it’s a strengthening protein, but after watching your video and seeing how much you love the Organicals DC Creme, hmmm… Maybe I’m not hitting on the right info?

      IMO, quinoa is a versatile protein. While it does strengthen, it also helps your hair retain moisture. I have never had any problems with it, and I consider myself protein sensitive – wheat, keratin, and sometimes even soy protein make my hair hard/dry/frizzy. Also, if you look at the ingredients list of the DC, the quinoa is the 7th ingredient, so it’s not super high on the list. Everyone’s hair is different as I’m sure you know, but I haven’t had any issues with this one – it leaves my hair soft every time! I hope that helps some.

    Hi Elle:

    Thanks for this information. My mom, also a natural, has been looking to make her own conditioners, howerver her initial attempt was a complete and utter FAILURE – squared!!!

    Thanks again! I am a self professed mixtress, and the people I give samples to are always suggesting I sell it. I’m like “hell no” the ladies on naturally.com went in on folks who used a base in their product under the guise that it’s hand made.

    Very cute hair, btw!
