Default Are these okay?

I wanted to know if these two conditioners were okay to use. If so, would they be better as the richer second conditioner in co-wash, the first, either, or neither? Thanks!

I tried the Chamomile for the first time the other night, and the last. It felt like I was using a shampoo. Though it didn't make my hair squeak, it just didn't feel moisturizing or anything.

So I'm not willing to try the Herbal.

The only thing I'd question is the vegetable emulsifying wax, but it has emulsifying so I don't know if it's CG like emulsifying wax -NF.

What do you mean by "okay to use"? For CG or for curly hair, in general?

I've never tried the Chamomile just because I've never like the smell. But I've been using the Herbal conditioner for about 2 weeks now and my hair seems to like it.

It's not the best smelling conditioner either, but it's really great for co-washing (I wouldn't use it as a leave-in). I also tried mixing it with the juice of one lemon for a DT. My hair felt really soft and clarified after that.

Hope this helps!
I just want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.

I hated the Herbal- but I know many who like it. It made my hair very squeaky plus it was a poopy brown color.
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not;
and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.
