Why didn't the Burdock root butter cream work for me?

I know obviously it's hard to know but I thought if I give you all information about my hair and the ingredients maybe someone can figure out what caused my hair to react this way (Hard, straw like hair and coating of hair)....
I bought the burdock root butter cream from Qhemet biologics and did my research, and it should work for my hair type...Or so I thought.
I have protein sensitive, low porous, 3b hair.

Here are the ingredients in the burdock root butter cream:
Distilled water,Olive (Olea europa) Oil,Extracts of Burdock Root (Arctium lappa), Nettle (Urtica dioica) and Oatstraw (Avena sativa), MSM Sulfur (Methylsufonylmethane), Vegetable Glycerin,Wheat extract,Cetearyl Alcohol, Cethyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Conditioning Emulsifier (Stearalkonium Chloride), Vitamin E, Lactic Acid, Maltodextrin, Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin (a paraben-free & formaldehyde-free perservative), Essential Oil scent.


I'm just trying to figure out what ingredients I should keep far away from seeing as my hair seem to hate protein with a passion.
i tried it on wet,damp and dry hair and got the same result = Straw-like hair, and the cream seemed to sit on my hair and also made my hair tangled.

My hair is fine, low porosity, corkicelli and LOVES protein. It didn't care for the BRBC, either. Sometimes, your hair just likes other things better than others.

I know this thread is old but I just wanted to bump this in case someone else with protein sensitive hair ends up hair while searching for answers. I'm very protein sensitive, tried this cream and also ended up with dry brittle hair.

I think the culprits are the Oatstraw and Wheat Extract which are fairly high in the ingredients list. I did some quick searches and they both seem to have protein or at least mimic protein in hair.
