[…] Reply C.L. May 14, 2013 at 11:07 am I'm sorry Jeni but what does "101" means ? (It was in my english exam last week but I never got to understand what it is) thank for the post though now I know what milk protein and SAA are Reply Jen May 16, 2013 at 6:20 pm 101 is just slang for "basic introduction." Introduction classes are often named Psychology 101, Biology 101, Physics 101 Reply Alexandra Aallexxy May 10, 2013 at 9:03 pm Hi Jeni, what are your thoughts on the brazilian blow dry aka keratin treatment? Thanks Reply Alexandra Aallexxy May 10, 2013 at 9:10 pm Ps: can you recommend anything for a thin hairline? Mine got damage from over relaxing when I was younger, or should I just reside myself to the fact that it'll never fully grow back? Thanks Reply Jen May 16, 2013 at 6:29 pm I've never done a brazilian blow dry/keratin treatment and don't really know much about it. My aunt had a thinning edges and saw success with scalp massages with oils that contain sulfur and castor oil (peppermint and rosemary can also be added). Hope that helps! Reply Danielle Bee April 29, 2013 at 7:24 pm Thanks for this post… it's very helpful. Reply Jhan April 29, 2013 at 6:49 pm I've been trying to find a straight-forward post on hair proteins for a while now. This is great! I purchased the Suave Keratin Infusion Condish a couple months ago and used it weekly. I loved it b/c it left my hair super smooth and manageable, but I was losing my hair in CRAZY clumps. I wish I had known Keratin was a protein. I honestly believed it to be a silkening agent. Glad I figured it out in time before I lost all of my hair, though. 🙂 Reply serenity74 April 29, 2013 at 1:59 pm perfect timing. i just had my first protein overload moment so this info definitely help when journaling my progress (I use an Excel spreadsheet lol #supergeek) Reply Anonymous April 29, 2013 at 12:36 pm Thank you, Jenny! This is so helpful. Reply Blutiful Blaq April 29, 2013 at 7:10 am Thanks for this post. It will definitely come in handy when purchasing more items and even looking at the items I already have. Reply Blessed Tresses April 29, 2013 at 4:08 am Jeni, you read my mind. I've been trying to figure out what's the difference between all of the proteins. Thanks for your help! Reply WriterGirl April 29, 2013 at 2:02 am Can you recommend any products with the types especially SAA's. I've been looking for something to use before I perm. Reply Lisa Owens April 28, 2013 at 11:09 pm Hello Jeni, I have a question. I am protein sensitive and I was wondering are there any proteins that I could safely use? Thanks in advance. Lisa Reply Anonymous April 28, 2013 at 10:28 pm Thank you so much for posting this! I've always wondered what the different proteins were when they were listed on conditioners. This is soooo helpful!
