Are these ingredients good?

I tried this this morning and I have the best hair I have had in a long time! I love it, but the ingredients look a little...hmmm. The product is Hollywood Beauty Olive Cream. Im kind of cg, meaning i try to avoid cones and sulphates more often than not. All the ingredients, except for these, are natural: Isopropyl Myristate, Triethanolamine, Methyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben, and Imidazolidinyl Urea. Can anyone shed some light on what these ingredients are? I love my results, but I would also like to know what im putting in my hair, since it can be so tempermental. Thanks!

    Isopropyl Myristate - acts as an emollient and lubricant

    Triethanolamine - acts as a pH balancer

    Methyl Paraben - preservative

    Propyl Paraben - preservative

    Imidazolidinyl Urea - preservative

    But what about putting parabem and other preservatives on the hair? I was thinking of buying phyto 9 but it has that and some other preservatives that seem to coat the hair. What is the effect on thehair and the environment?
    Hair type, thin, 3b, past my shoulders always looking for length. Use jessicurl hair cleansing cream, devacurl one c, angel, set it free, Always see a deva trained stylist for cut and Aveda Institute for color.

    I am a little worried about all the prservatives. I try to be environmentally conscious, but when it comes to all these weird sounding ingredients, I get a little confused. While I did get very good results, my hair feels a little coated today. I prefer natural products, but i am trying to use this stuff up. I wonder why they needed all those preservatives in the first place?
