methosulfate good or bad?

I know sulfates are bad for curly hair. But I keep seeing the ingredient: Dipalmitoylethyl hydroxyethylmonium Methosulfate or methosulfate by itself. Is this a bad ingredient for curly hair?

I have a Phytojoba intense hydrating mask that has this ingredient and I would like to know if it is safe to use on my 3b, dry, highlighted curly hair. Thanks for your support!!!
Not familiar with this particular methosulfate, but I know many curlies love products that contain bhentrimonium (sp?) methosulfate - I don't believe methosulfates in general are the enemy like sodium lauryl or laureth sulfate, ammonium lauryl or laureth sulfate, TEA lauryl sulfate, etc.
2C/3A/3B - modified CG - fairly fine now, normal/low porosity/normal elasticity

Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!

Thank you so much for your reply, it helps me a lot!
Do you think that it the following ingredient words appear by themselves like, sodium, lauryl, laureth, sulfate, ammonium they are bad ingredients, too?
I'm starting to get familiarize with curly hair ingredients.

Thanks !
Dipalmitoylethyl hydroxyethylmonium Methosulfate is not bad. It is a quaternary ammonium salt derived from palm oil. It's good for conditioning and detangling. You will find methosulfates in your conditioners. It is not a harsh cleansing sulfate like SLS or ALS

The second product has hydrolized protein. While it can be great if your hair needs protein, it could also mess up your hair if it alreadly has enough protein (So chek if other products you use have that ingredient)

Hope that helped a little

... THANKS for the tip Rusycurly! I was just reading carefully the ingredients on the Phytojoba mask and the actual box doesn't have the Dimethicone ingredient which is pretty good. So I guess I'm good to go! the other one it does have the protein, so I guess I'll see how it goes with that one.

Is too much protein bad? how do I know if my hair has to much protein in it already?

Thanks girl!
