Default Question about Phenyl Trimethicone?

I have been curly girl for 4 months now which isnt very long, but as of lately Im getting bored of my routine so I picked up the Aveda be curly curl enhancer. Reading the ingredients I saw it had a cone in it..my question is can I use this and still be cg? I only wash my hair maybe 2-3 times a week, but when I wash it I low poo with Giovanni TTT. I know Giovanni doesnt use sulfates and neither does aveda, but I guess Im still worried the cone would stay in my hair and cause build up...I also wash my hair with ACV before I low poo it. Im kind of new to this so I was just wondering if this was okay to use..or if I should just go back to my arc angell gel. Thanks!

The rest of the ingredients are:

Cetearyl Alcohol,Cetyl Alchohol,Phenyl Trimethicone, Linseed extract, Marshmellow root extract, leaf juice, behentrimonium chloride, wheat protein, panthenol Quatermium-95, Polyquaternium-11, Glycerin, Tocopherol, Propandediol fragrance,Geraniol, Linalool, Amyl cinnamal, Citronellol limonene, Maltodextrin, Phenoxyethol

It's not CG. But if you're using either the Giovanni or the Aveda shampoos regularly you shouldn't have any issues with buildup. I would also try not to use daily.

Thanks! I just used it in my hair today and im not really sold on the way it looks..it seemed to make my hair frizzy which hasnt happened since I went CG. Do you have any product recommendations? I've tried angell, KCC, be-leavin, and the new deva curl foam, but I cant seem to find anything else that I really like.
