Default Hot 6 oil any CG uses this?

How does it work for you with the CG regimen? I used to swear by it before I go CG and then gave it up because of the cyclomethicone in it. I would love to start using it back (I miss it!). If you have experience using it with CG please let me know.

I don't happen to use it, but thought I'd throw out some info. on the Cyclomethicone. While it isn't water soluble, and so not strictly CG friendly, this Curl Chemist article says it's removable via cowashing. Additionally, another Curl Chemist article mentions that clyclomethicone (and other cyclo-cones) evaporate off of hair after application. Something to think about before deciding yea or nay on this product.

Awesome, thank you so much. I will definitely give it a try (as a CG I mean). If it starts building up or something (though based on the links you gave me it won't) I will just give it up.
