Calling the ingredient experts!

Hello!!

Recently I bought 2 very good hairproducts but I m a bit worried if the ingredients won´t dry out my hair. I m not an expert so I would be very(!!!!!!!!!) thankfull if someone who has knowledge could advise me?

The conditioner:
aqua, cetearyl alcohol, cetrimonium chloride, isopropyl myristate, aloe extract, camellia extract, isopropyl alcohol, propylene glycol, 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol, citrid acid, butlphenyl.

Gel:
aqua, VP/VA copolymer, sorbitol, tea carbomer, peg-40 hydrogenated castor oil, panthenol, peg-75 lanolin, methylparaben, propylene glycol, dmdm hydantoin, benzophenone 4, linalool, hexyl cinnamel, limonene, citronellol, disodium edta, buthylphenyl methpropional.
Long dark brown 3B curls! Still looking for the HG gel. I like CK and JCCC. Gonna try KCCC and KT
I definitely don't see anything drying in the gel, and I don't think I do in the condish either. The only thing that I'm skeptical about is the isopropyl myristate, since isopropyl alcohol is drying...so I'm wondering if that is too.

CoN green, HE hello hydration, burt's bees super shiny condish, & KCCC.

mostly 3b, mod CG

Couple of inches past shoulder length 3A. Shampoo every 3rd or 4th day w/ baby shampoo; Tigi Fashionista conditioner; back to Condition 3-in-1 mousse . Alternate days water rinse, conditioner and mousse.

Oh don't worry

Thanks a lot girls for the replies , I m very glad you gave me advice. Now I know the ingredients are pretty good (except the isopropyl alcohol, but as Linda said, the amount of it is not too bad )
