Question about Herbal Essences Mousse & Polyquat-4

First of all, HI! I've been lurking here for months and the advice I've found on this site is starting to do wonders for my curls - thank you all :)

Anyway, I recently bought Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Boosting Mousse after hearing about it here. I was reading through the ingredients and saw that it contains polyquaterium-4. I have fine hair and am worried about build-up. Does anyone have any experience with this product?
I'm going down the modified-curly girl method and using a low-poo (L'oreal Eversleek). Will that be sufficient to remove polyquaternium-4?

    Never used the product, but have issues with polyquats 4, 7 and 10. You won't know if you have issues until you try it. For me, the polyquat issues show up as frizz, even when wet.

    Don't know the ingredients for your Eversleek. There are a few shampoos in that line. The two I found have polyquat 10.

    I used to use Herbal Essences mousse all of the time, both as a CGer and not. I never had any issues with buildup, and I'd say my hair is definitely on the finer side of medium.

    Thanks for the responses everyone. @Kathymack - I can't believe I never noticed Eversleek has polyquat 10 in it! Guess it mustn't be having much effect on me.
