Curl Junkie BeautiCurls protein?

My hair is protein sensitive and very dry, and although BeautiCurls leave-in is protein free it contains Nettle leaf extract and horsetail leaf extract. I heard these can act like proteins, so is this leave-in safe to use, or will it dry out my hair even more?

    All you can really do is try.

    Fwiw - my hair loves virtually anything CJ. I'm protein sensitive so I don't slather on a protein product when I don't need it but my hair loves CJ. Also, aloe can act as a protein and it does in my hair but my hair actually tolerates it fairly well - you might find these two ingredients work fine for you.
    remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!! :read2:
    My hair:
    2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
    My routine:
    Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
    RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
    LI: KCKT or CJSL
    Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

    Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
