Sorry WavyRoo, I don't mean to convert to a different topic, but Firefox, what are some ingredients that are considered emollients? I have been trying to find a good leave-in, but I am not specifically positive on what exactly to look for.

Also, that was a great article!

See if you can find the recent thread on conditioners v. moisturisers, we went over various definitions of emollients. Basically to me they are softening agents so many ingredients have emollience as a secondary property, but the key emollients found in hair conditioners are the cationic surfactants and the fatty alcohols. list of common ingredients in families
