Question How bad is Cyclomethicone?

I just ordered the free sample pack of the new TIGI stuff and realized Cyclomethicone was in one of the products, among other things ending with -cone. Does anyone know about the TIGI curlesque products and Cyclomethicone?

I've heard that cyclomethicone isn't the most horrible of 'cones and that it actually eventually evaporates over time (or may come off if you, say, put your hands through your hair), so you might not need shampoo to remove it. I'm not 100% sure, though...

I lo-poo. But the last thing I need is tons of crap in my hair.

I found this blog that has a description of the -cones. Cyclomethicone is slightly water soluble, so it may build up, but since you lo-poo, it shouldn't be an issue. And keep this puppy for future reference. I like this blog a lot.
