I think the sampler is worth it. That way you can try out many products and figure out what works for you. As for light vs. rich, that depends on how much moisture your hair needs. If it's dry and needs a lot of moisture, go for the rich. If it gets easily weighed down and/or overconditioned, I'd go with the light pack.
