Infusium 23 conditioner

So I just bought this Infusium 23 conditioner the frizzologie one.
Im wondering if it's okay for CG?
(I wanted to buy the leave-in as well, but theere wasnt any! :( )

I also bought an Aveeno 2-in-1 shampoo & conditioner to act as my "low-poo"
it's the only sulfate-free shampoo I could find, so I just went on with it.

    If you post the ingredients, we can tell if it is CG or not. I used to use Infusium (the ordinary kind) before I went curly. I liked it a lot for roller sets.
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    Frustrating, isn't it, to find something that looks good only to have it fall outside your chose routine.

    And thanks, crwitt, for your helpfulness!

    Your Infusium conditioner only contains amodimethicone, which is typically washed out with cleansing conditioners.

    The shampoo has dimethicone but its paired with a cleanser that will wash it out.

    Its relatively CG. Not the super strict 'conditioner only' CG, but if you're going for a low-poo routine, I think it looks pretty good.

    Amodimethicone doesn't build up.
