My hair definitely reacts badly to horsetail and possibly nettle. A lot of CJ products have them and after more than one or two uses, my hair gets drier and frizzier. However, I don't have problems with the curl rehab used as a RO or LI, but it could be because I don't use it repeatedly every day so it might just be the tad bit of protein my hair needs.
