Phyto 9 ingredients

Does anyone know if the preservatives in this product have bad effects on the hair and environment. Parabem is one of them and some other more complicated names. I am ambivalent about buying it because of these unnatural ingredients but I like a cream on dry hair. Any other natural selections would be appreciated except garnier fructis. It doesn't do anything. for me.

    Have you tried any of the Curl Junkie curl cremes or leave-ins? I like those a lot and they are CG friendly. Because Curl Junkie is based in NYC, I'm thinking that you might be able to pick them up locally.

    My favorite is the Hibiscus & Banana Honey Creme. I need to use very little on sopping wet hair, it moisturizes & enhances curl a bit for me.

    Some curlies said that one of the humectant ingreds in it lifted color from their hair, especially curlies who dye their hair red.

    I'm trying to think of other natural type products...Oyin's products are all paraben-free, but they don't really have a lightweight cream. I love their [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Oyin-Handmade-Whipped-Pudding-p-353.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=oyin-whipped-pudding]whipped pudding[/buylink], but it's far too heavy & thick for my fine hair. Hmmm. I'll keep thinking. You'll be using this with AnGell or ArcAnGell or a gel like that?
