  8. 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. :-)

    1. 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

    2. 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!

    1. 101 is just slang for "basic introduction." Introduction classes are often named Psychology 101, Biology 101, Physics 101
