Hi Angie. The Hydrating Macadamia Oil Intense Moisture Mask is not CG, since it contains Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, and Dimethiconol, all non water soluble silicones that require a sulfate shampoo or a coca. betaine containing low poo to remove. If the other product you referred to is the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque
, it's not CG either, since it contains Amodimethicone and Trimethylsilosyamodimethicone. Again, non water soluble silicones you need a shampoo to remove. Of the two, the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque looks like a "better" product, but it still has 'cones, so it'd be a no go for me.
As far as deep conditioners, my hair is fairly prone to getting easily overconditioned, so I haven't needed to find one. In fact, I did my first dt the other day to help correct some overproteining, and I used my usual rinse out plus some additives. Maybe someone else can chime in on dt suggestions.
