Silicones can be identified in ingredient lists by looking for ingredients that end in -cone, -xane, or -conol. Water soluble silicones can be identified by a PEG or PPG at the beginning of the name (there are a few silicones that do not build up that are not water soluble, and dimethicone copolyol doesn't have a PPG or PEG but is water soluble). The Curl Chemist articles on NC.com are awesome for learning about different ingredients and how they affect your hair.
