deva low poo - polyquats! ??

I have no idea if polyquats effect my hair in a negative way. But I've been reading about them and they don't sound that great. Especially polyquat 7 . Deva Care low poo has both polyquat 10 and 7!!!
What is their thinking on that and WHY are they in there???
I'm still not sure if I like the low poo. I used it twice last week. By day 3 my hair felt kind of heavy. Yesterday I had the curliest hair I have probably ever had. I did a co-wash with Nature's gate jojoba condish.
I have a topic going on polyquats because I'm still not sure what good they do if any.... Alot of articles talk about positive and negative charge, anti static, moisturizing but every article says they are very hard to get out of hair and some people get build up with them.
How can you tell you have polyquat build up??
I know what my hair is like with protein build up. Silicone build up, my hair just goes flat and greasy looking.

I think I have some polyquat buildup as I've been using a gel with polyquaternium-10, and that builds up over time, if you're not clarifying. I haven't shampooed since late April. My hair has felt a little rough, in the past couple of weeks, very tangly and not as responsive as I had become used to in the past several months. I did an ACV rinse today to eliminate the possibility that hard water is responsible for it, so if my hair is still acting crazy when it's dry, then I'll go out and get a coco-betaine shampoo, which should be enough to remove it, from what I've read.

Including amodimethicone in a conditioner by the supposed staunchest anti-cone activist, was partially explained away by the fact there was a low-poo which could remove it. But what's going to remove what that same low-poo leaves behind?

That's why I don't like to use conditioning shampoos too much- nice at first, but they all tend to leave a buildup on my hair, which can really stop other stuff penetrating, if they're not backed up by another cleanser. I prefer a gentle, basic shampoo that I can use once in a while to deep-cleanse my hair, without leaving a bunch of other stuff all over it.
Geez, I am STILL confused about the whole deva line! When I went in for my haircut at Devachan, my stylist told me all I needed was no poo, one c, and angell. So according to that logic, I would not need the low poo to get out the one c or angell? He introduced me to a LOT of people in the salon who haven;t pooed in years.
