I am extremely protein sensitive, with naturally coarse hair, that is slightly porous due to highlighting.

I can use some products with protein analogues (other than kelp/algae & coconut) on a sporadic, but not regular, basis.

My hair seemed to like jojoba oil & avocado oil at first, but got super dry & poofy after a few weeks of regular use.

My hair loathes hops, yeast & most plant "extracts", which seem to be added to a lot of protein-free products. I am on the fence with horsetail & nettles. I can do aloe juice when blended into products, but not on its own.

I also avoid polyquats & most cationic surfactants (except stearamidopropyl dimethylamine), due to buildup issues.
