The difference between protein and moisturizing conditioners

There are many proteins used in conditioners and the most popular is hydrolyzed Keratin which strengthens the hair strands. Next is collagen which increases hair’s flexibility and elasticity. Other ones I have seen are egg proteins, oat protein, milk protein, soy protein, oat protein, amino acids, collagen amino acids, elastin etc

    1. I have tried them in the past (GNC ultra nourish hair) and I think it worked. I have used hairifinity but quite infrequently so I cannot testify about it. Right now, I am taking bamboo tea but I don’t know if that qualifies to be called a hair vitamin. I do think it also works.
