I like this thread. :-)
I'm about to go over to the dark side, too. I've been experimenting with mousse lately and I always see everyone raving about Suave's Captivating Curls mousse (contains dimethicone). So I bought a bottle and it's been sitting on my counter for a few days. It's strange - I want to try it, but the thought of using it makes me feel strangely disloyal, plus I have this irrational fear that I'm going to ruin 2.5 years of work being CG and getting my hair to where it is now. I know it's irrational, so I *am* going to use it later today, as soon as I rinse out my DT. Part of me wants it to work great, and part of me wants it to fail miserably. How can I be so conflicted over a stupid hair product? Lol!
