Dimethicone vs dimethiconol ?

How do they differ from each other?
The -OH groups don't make it water soluble.

I've tried applying them on hair
at normal concentrations (dissolved in cyclomethicone) I didn't notice any difference
at high concentrations, or 100% pure, dimethiconol feels a bit "wet" and "colder" afterwards, unlike dimethicone.

How can you choose one over the other for hair and skin applications?
