Default Are these ingredients good?

I tried this this morning and I have the best hair I have had in a long time! I love it, but the ingredients look a little...hmmm. The product is Hollywood Beauty Olive Cream. Im kind of cg, meaning i try to avoid cones and sulphates more often than not. All the ingredients, except for these, are natural: Isopropyl Myristate, Triethanolamine, Methyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben, and Imidazolidinyl Urea. Can anyone shed some light on what these ingredients are? I love my results, but I would also like to know what im putting in my hair, since it can be so tempermental. Thanks!

Isopropyl Myristate - acts as an emollient and lubricant

Triethanolamine - acts as a pH balancer

Methyl Paraben - preservative

Propyl Paraben - preservative

Imidazolidinyl Urea - preservative

But what about putting parabem and other preservatives on the hair? I was thinking of buying phyto 9 but it has that and some other preservatives that seem to coat the hair. What is the effect on thehair and the environment?

I am a little worried about all the prservatives. I try to be environmentally conscious, but when it comes to all these weird sounding ingredients, I get a little confused. While I did get very good results, my hair feels a little coated today. I prefer natural products, but i am trying to use this stuff up. I wonder why they needed all those preservatives in the first place?
