Would this conditioner do good things to my curls or not?

Hi curlies!

Today in store I saw this conditioner called Henna Cure&Care Pure conditioner.

I wonder if it would do good things to my curls or not.
I think it is CG (correct me if I'm wrong)

The bottle says it's pH 5
Ingredients:
Aqua, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Isopropyl Myristate, Benzyl Alcohol, D-Panthenol, Henna (Lawsonia Inermis) Extract, Parfum, Dehydroacetic acid, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Buxus Chinensis, Citric acid.

Anyone know what all of these ingredients do and if they would be any good?
Like the 2 alcohols, are they drying or not? (I still really suck at ingredients... I'm sorry!)

Thank you!
2c: fine texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity, normal-high density

    It looks good to me, I would use it!

    Cetearyl Alcohol is a fatty conditioning alcohol
    Benzyl Alcohol I've read in the past is neither drying nor not drying. It's used as a preservative.

    Someone can correct me if I am wrong.

    Benzyl alcohol is a bit drying, if it's high in the ingredients list like this. Nevertheless I wouldn't be too afraid as your rinsing out, not leaving it in your hair. I would personally try it :)

    And yes it's true it's used as a preservative :) Drying alcohols are natural preservatives.

    What would the henna extract do? (in this conditioner it doesn't "dye" your hair)
    Would this conditioner probably loosen or tighten my curls?
