CG and deep conditioning?

Hi, I'm considering going CG but have a question about deep conditioning--when you CG's deep condition with something heavy and oily. say, coconut oil, do you "wash" it out with a co-wash after? Is that sufficient to remove excess oil? TIA!
I deep condition with Eden body works jojoba deep condition. I deep condition after I low poo or clarify. Sometimes after I co-wash. I don't wash after my deep condition. I just rinse out the deep condition with cool water in order to reduce frizz. For added penetration, I sit under a hooded dryer set on the 'natural' (low) setting for 15-30 minutes.
Yes you can conditioner only wash out coconut oil, many people think it works better than washing oil out with shampoo.

Anionic surfactants are highly effective degreasers with fairly hot water, think how you do the oven dishes after roasting a fatty meat. Obviously we don't want to soak our heads in almost boiling water!
