Any sensitive beauties get itchies from CJ Curl Queen?

Please say no because I love my sample of this and would like to order a full size bottle! I have tried a couple of new things in the last couple of days so it may not be that. I thought for certain that it was the CJ Strengthening Conditioner but I started having light scalp itch again last night after getting my hair cut (and washed with my usual stuff) and I freshened with some CJ Curl Queen gel.

I am allergic/reactive to so much stuff, so it would not surprise me. Just would want to make certian that it was not that before ordering a full size bottle.

    You may be sensitive to it but just not be able to use it daily. I have some issues with a few CJ products that as long as I don't use it every day I'm ok.

    I feel you though. I didn't have any issues with CQ but I didn't use it more than 2 days in a row.

    No allergies here, either. But I rotate products. Rarely use anything twice in five days, let alone two days in a row.

    Ohhhhh no. JAJC, I have been fearing this the past few days! I just purchased the full size bottle of CQ as well as daily fix. I definitely had the itchies, but I wasn't sure which product was causing it or if it was stress. The moment i get stressed my scalp starts to itch, and I was at a pretty high level the past few days :) I am going to keep trying the CQ though, so I'll report back if I think it's definitely causing the itch. I really hope it isn't!!!

    BLB-I hope not for both of us but it would save me money if so!! haha! I have the Deep Conditioner and the Cleansing Conditioner (that may be called Daily Fix) samples yet to use. I hope those do not give me itchies! I, too, am going to keep trying with the Curl Queen. Fingers crossed!

    kathymack and rymorg-okay, you two. I barely have 5 products that I can use on my hair in total-NOT enough to rotate!! Color me jealous!!

    LOL guys! It's not as many as you think due to my sensitivities. When I first started this journey it was WAY more....but now I have two or three of each product I use (PT, DT, cleansers, other condishes, and stylers) that I rotate on a regular basis. My closet, cabinet, and tub aren't as full as they were once before!

    Well, I waited a couple of weeks and tried it again tonight. Itchies. Not what I wanted since even though it has aloe, it has plenty of my plastics to support it.

    I was going to buy this if there was a Black Friday sale.

    Bummer.

    I think I may be alone in getting the itchies from it. You will probably be just fine!!

    Curl Queen made me itch, but I only invested in a sample-size. Hooray for samples.

    These are the ingredients, with potential offenders in red:
    Ingredients: Water, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Hydroethylcellulose, Corn Starch Modified, Polyquaternium-4, Panthenol, PVP, Camellia Sinensis Leaf (Green Tea) Extract, Wheat Protein, Wheat Starch, Polysorbate 20, Propylene Glycol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Fragrance.

    Might be some others too. When I really want to know which ingredient is a problem, I look at other products I've used (not just on hair, but skin too) which gave me problems to find common ingredients. You develop your own list of "usual suspects" pretty quickly that way.
  • justajesuschickjustajesuschick Posts: 1,657Registered Users Curl Neophyte
    Yes. Mine was a sample, too! I do not have any other hair products that cause itchies. I think perhaps Recoil did. I will go check those ingredients and see if I can start building a list of ingredients to avoid.

    OH! I have been meaning to tell you that the ingredient triethanolamine that we discussed is in my beloved BRHG!! never noticed it before.

    IAgirl this really helped me. Curl Queen makes me itch too (have tried my FULL size bottle several times now), but I am completely overwhelmed at trying to narrow down which ingredients are irritating my sensitive scalp. You highlighting the possible offenders makes me realize that I might actually be able to narrow down a list for myself. I am going to write down possible "suspects" and where they appeared on the ingredient list, and keep it with my products for easier reference. Thanks IAgirl for giving me ideas! It's such a shame about CQ because I really love what it does for my hair. Sigh...
