Good luck with it, Jas! I'm going to wash again tomorrow, too, and try a little different gel combo on top of my dimethicone styler. My hair did not hold up super well today, but I think that's because it was rainy and humid here. I ended up with a decent amount of frizz at the end of the day.
Hey, does anyone know where to find that list of ingredients that will get out silicones? I know there was one floating around here at some point, but since I wasn't using cones then, I didn't pay attention. I use CJ shampoo, which I think will get out dimethicone, but I'm not positive.
