Question Anyone heard of/used KAVA products?

The KAVA CLARIFYING PHINISHER I got today supposedly removes chlorine, trace metals, mineral deposits and medication from hair.

I'm running really low on my Nexxus Emergencee & Sebastian Penetraitt (protein reconstructors) & I'm only guessing this does the same thing. But it doesn't say to follow with a deep conditioner after leaving it set for a few minutes. So maybe it's supposed to be a deep treatment on its own.

It contains: Extract of Kava, Sage, Nettles, Watercress, Aloe, Chamomile, Ginsing, Yarrow, Horsetail, Kelp, Cetrimonium Chloride, Cetyl Alcohol, Peg-12 Distearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Stearalkonium Chloride, Stearyl Alcohol, Methylparabem, Tetrasodium EDTA, Acetamide MEA, Hydrolyzed Collage, Keratin, Sodium Lauriminodipropinoate, Glycerin, Panthenol, Glucose Glutamate, Avacado Oil, Sorbitol, Safflower Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Jojoba Oil, Simethicone, Dimethicone, Coconut Milk, Coconut Oil, Phosphoric Acid, Dicetyldimonium Chloride, Cetrimonium Bromide, Propylparaben, DMDM Hydantoin, Peppermint Oil, Octyl Dimethyl PABA, Menthol, FD&C Blue No. 1.

I hope that because the Peppermint & Menthol are so low on the list that they're in low concentrations & won't bother my skin. These things when high(er) on the list make my skin turn red, burn & itch.

Default

Though I can't find any information about this on the web other than it's used in prep for perms https://www.gotbeauty.com/shop/item.ihtml?idx=440 & since it smelled fine (not spoiled) I tried it.

My skin wasn't bothered, but my hair felt like it does during/after using the protein products. It definitely requires a serious deep treatment after.
