I've never seen nor heard of this "protein filling" stuff until just now. It sounds intriguing. So, Sally's is where I can find it. Just having bleached my hair I'll bet it would LOVE LOVE such a thing.

I'll keep reading on. You ladies are so the bomb with how you share and educate.

Namaste,

Hi there,

What the heck is "Izmir" like? I am so intrigued.

Okay, this topic has me looking so here is what I found:
What Is Protein Hair Filler?

As a way to protect your hair against damage, you can use a protein filler treatment. Protein hair fillers have the ability to repair damaged bonds found within your hair follicles. Also, protein hair fillers use ingredients to seal in color after you have dyed your hair.

Recommendations
1. Manufacturers of protein fillers recommend that you apply the treatment immediately before you apply color onto the hair. Protein fillers can also be used before chemical treatments, such as perms and body waves. You can also use it following the coloring or chemical processing to repair any damage that may have been done during the process.
Brands
2. You can find protein hair fillers from companies, such as Colorful Professional, Herbal Extracts Plus and Nexxus. Protein hair fillers are usually moderately priced and you can find 8 oz. bottles for less than $10. You can buy protein hair fillers from hair supply stores as well as online retailers. Sally Beauty Supply sells several brands of protein hair fillers.
Usage
3. Follow the directions on the packaging of the protein hair filler. In most cases, you will apply a small dollop on your hand and work it through your hair from the roots to the ends. It does not need to be rinsed out of your hair before coloring or chemical processing. Alternatively, you can add many protein fillers to the hair dye mixture to enhance how well the chemicals bond to the hair.
Tips
4. Many protein hair fillers can also be used as a deep conditioning treatment. After you shampoo, dilute the protein filler with water. Use two parts of the filler and one part water for the mixture. Apply the mixture and allow it to sit in your hair for two to five minutes before rinsing. For easier application, transfer the protein hair filler to a spray bottle.
Warning
5. Don't add too much of the protein hair filler directly to the dye. Use a very small amount, or the mixture will come out runny and become messy to apply. Also, make sure you choose the protein hair filler appropriate for your hair color. Although some brands are neutral, others are specific to the hair color be used during the treatment.

Re: Question about using protein filler.
I found this blog on the net - I think its worth reading...

Whether you are a compulsive hair dyer like me or you just bleached your hair once and now are trying to dye it back to a darker color, you may find that your hair has reached a point that it just won't hold color anymore. Even if you put a nice dark hair dye
over the top of your hair within no time it will wash out to a faded mousy brown color that just isn't very pretty. If this sounds like you it is likely that you have damaged your hair shaft so that the color molecules just wash away rather than getting trapped inside.

Head down to your local beauty supply store and pick up something called protein filler. They sell protein fillers in various shades like black, red and brown, but personally I always just choose to buy neutral protein filler, which is clear. A large sized bottle of neutral protein filler costs around $5.00 and will make all the difference in the world with how your dye job comes out.

Next, pick up a box of hair dye in the color you want for you hair. Get everything ready like you are going to dye your hair like normal. Start by getting your hair damp and then saturate it with the protein filler. Make sure to hit all of your strands and not miss any spots in the back. Once you have the protein filler on your hair you will need to let it set for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes you are ready to dye your hair. DO NOT rinse the protein filler out of your hair before dying it. Just apply the hair dye like normal right over the top of the protein filler and follow the timing instructions on the box of hair dye for how long to leave it in. When the time is up rinse your hair thoroughly and condition it using the conditioner that came with your hair dye.

Protein filler works to help seal the color into your hair shaft so it will last longer. Not only that, but it helps the color go on more evenly so you don't have spots that are darker or lighter and it helps to repair the damage to your hair at the same time. What more could you want?

While your hair dye may not last as long as if you had applied it to virgin hair, it will last much longer than it would without using the protein filler and can help make it possible to go from a very light color to a very dark color easily. Apply any leftover protein filler to your hair periodically to help condition your hair and keep it in great shape. All in all it is an excellent product and well worth buying for great hair dying results.

Bumping this up

Is anyone still using this? My friend is getting me this from the US and i would like to know if anyone is adding it to their spray bottles. I'm thinking it might be great to use in creating a leave-in that has both moisturizing and protein benefits.

At first, i was just thinking of diluting it with rose water and a bit of glycerin

But now, i'm thinking maybe i should try rose water, a vial of BIOLAGE cera repair and a moisturizing conditioner. I'm thinking something from HERBAL ESSENCE, BIOLAGE, REDKEN, ORGANIX, JOICO, DE LORENZO or BED HEAD TIGI moisture maniac conditioner as these are readily available in Australia.

OR, i could just add some of it to my AFRICAN ROYALE BRX braid spray

Any ideas guys?

I'm currently in a weave so i'm trying to get as much information as i can before i take it down. BTW, i usually seal my hair with grapeseed or sunflower oil after moisturizing with BEE MINE luscious

Thanks in advance

There is a Sallys in Queens that is where I go for all my stuff. I purchase 2 or 3 at a time.

Neutral protein filler once diluted goes badly fairly quickly I only add some to my relaxer and I will also now be using it as a harder protein undiluted on my ends once I reach my first goal.

I may try it out sooner than that mixed in with my Ion effective care treatment soon. oh boy I hope my hair likes it.

I'm going to purchase here from now on because I get a much larger size for less than at Sallys

Sallys with their customer loyalty card charges 5.69 plus tax for a 4 oz bottle.

The other site charges 11.95 for a 16 oz bottle

I faithfully add this to my relaxers for my touchup. I like the outcome so much better than adding oil to the relaxer.

I use the Colorful Neutral Protein Filler as a staple protein treatment in my routine, and it has made my hair strong and resilient without the roughness that is usually associated with heavier proteins.

Be careful with using it too frequently because, despite the nice feeling it produces, it can and will cause protein overload.

@Myjourney2009:

I tend to let my hair tell me when and what type of protein kick it needs. However, a once a month application sounds about right.

I'm going to start using this again. It's much less messier and smelly than Aphogee 2 step. My hair likes keratin protein the most.

Default Re: Protein fillers

how are people using this as a leave in? Are you using in straight or mixing it with your leave in conditioner and then applying? Is there any buildup with this and can it be used weekly as a leave in? Is this considered a medium or hard protein?
