Is the new Cantu Hydrating Cream Conditioner bad for your hair?

I've been trying to find a drugstore conditioner that my hair loves as much as tresemme naturals since it was discontinued. I've tried SO many and even though I found quite a few that are okay I haven't found one that I LOVE until I tried the cantu hydrating cream conditioner for natural hair. Unfortunately when I read the back of it the other day it had this warning:Avoid contact with eyes and open or irritated skin. If eye contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water. If eye irritation persists, contact a physician. For external use only. If ingested, contact a physician or Poison Control Center immediately. Keep out of reach of children.Um, what? That is not promising to me. Here are the ingredientsWater (Aqua, Eau), Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Glyceryl Stearate, Neopentyl Glycol Diheptanoate, Isododecane, Panthenol Polyester-11, Lactic Acid, Disodium Edta, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.Whats going on? Should I not be putting this on my head? Also, I follow the CG friendly method as much as possible but I don't really understand what I'm trying to avoid. Is this product cg friendly?

Funny because I looked up the ingredients before finishing reading your post. You're absolutely right with questioning the ingredients because there are a lot of no-nos in it. It's amazing how so many products use drying chemicals in something thats supposed to hydrate. This is exactly why I stopped putting these products in my hair. They do more harm than good and once I made the switch to REAL natural ingredient products my hair ate it up! I swear by Micmas Remix products because they only use organic natural ingredients and my hair is at its healthiest. Mind you, I use heat on my hair and have not had any damage due to the ingredients in Micmas that also act as a heat protectant. Tou can find them on Amazon or www.micmasremix.com. If you start using them I bet that your hair will love it.
