Dark & Lovely Au Naturale Knot Out Conditioner

I wanted to try a new deep conditioner and saw this at a local BSS. It doesn't have any obvious proteins or protein acting oils but I'm still not sure if it would be ok for very protein sensitive hair like mine. Here is the ingredient list:

Knot Out Conditioner:
AQUA / WATER / EAU, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, ELAEIS GUINEENSIS OIL / PALM OIL, BEHENTRIMONIUM CHLORIDE, PARFUM / FRAGRANCE, GLYCERIN PHENOXYETHANOL, ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL, STEARAMIDOPROPYL DIMETHYLAMINE, MANGIFERA INDICA SEED OIL / MANGO SEED OIL, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, CITRIC ACID, CHLORHEXIDINE DIHYDROCHLORIDE, BENZYL SALICYLATE, LINALOOL, BAMBUSA VULGARIS EXTRACT

ETA:
Here's another product from the line I'm interested in:
Water, glycerin, glycine soja oil / soybean oil, polysorbate 80, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, triethanolamine, oleth-5, carbomer, parfum/fragrance, phenoxyethanol, bis-diglyceryl polyacyladipate-2, caprylyl glycol, mangifera indica seed oil / mango seed oil, benzyl salicylate, linalool, bynzyl alcohol, limonene, CI / red 4, geraniol, bambusa vulgaris sap extract, CI 19140 / yellow 5

Would this be safe for very protein sensitive hair? On the bottles, it says there's mango oil and bamboo milk and I have never heard or used either of those particular ingredients. Thanks for your help!

    No proteins that I see, however, the bamboo at the bottom of the list is often used in other products as a strengthener (which reads as "pseudo protein" in my book), so give it a shot! I also saw this and thought "wow!", the ingredients remind me of an old fave...drum roll...GFTN(garnier fructis triple nutrition-old formula!). I have it saved in my curls on the go app, to try out when my GFTN back stock runs out. Yay!
