Anyone have problems with Sea Kelp?

Have any of you protein sensitive curlies had any issues with sea kelp? Is it a protein? Can you actually get protein overload from sea kelp?

I tried the Desert Essence Fragrance Free conditioner and it felt awesome in the shower. Great slip, felt moisturizing enough. I thought I had found a new holy grail. But then after my hair dried, it felt a lot drier than usual. I'm wondering if it was the sea kelp? But how come I didn't feel the drying effects while in the shower? Most conditioners containing proteins will dry my hair out as soon as I apply it to my hair in the shower and it will have horrible slip. How come this product feels so nice in the shower, but not so nice after my hair dries?

Here are the ingredients for the Desert Essence Fragrance Free conditioner...


Aloe Barbadensis Leaf (Aloe Vera) Juice*, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (Green Tea)*, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Glycerin (Palm), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B-5), Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Lepidium Meyenii Root Extract (Maca Root)*, Yucca Brevifolia Root Extract (Yucca Cactus)*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Water (Aqua), Symphytum Officinale Leaf Extract (Comfrey)*, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Leaf Extract*, Macrocystis Pyrifera Extract (Sea Kelp)*, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract*, Dehydroacetic Acid , Potassium Sorbate, Benzyl Alcohol, Citric Acid
