Which of these shampoos to get rid of silicones...?

Hi guys: I'm new. I want to go CG, but first I have to get rid off all the silicones in my hair. Right now I'm pretty confused though of what can and can't be in a shampoo. I know it has be pretty harsh on the cleaning front to get the silicones out, but I'm worried I might miss something that shouldn't be in there (other than silicones). I've read the book, but I'm still confused.
How about these three:
- Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Laureth-2, Sodium Chloride, Citric Acid, PEG-12 Dimethicone, Sodium Benzoate, Propylene Glycol, Polyquaternium-10, PEG-55 Propylene Glycol Oleate, Parfum, Salicylic Acid, Panthenol, PEG-14M, Laurdimonium Hydroxypropyl Hydrolized What Protein, Linalool, Limonene, Argania Spinosa Oil, Hexyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Salicylate, Citronellol, Hydrolized Keratin, Benzyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii, CI 47005, CI 15985

- Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Disodium PEG-5 Laurylcitrate Sulfosuccinate, Sodium Chloride, PEG-3 Distearate, Ubiquinone, Punica Granatum Fruit Juice, Benzophenone-4, Oryzanol, Polyquaternium-10, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Citric Acid, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Salicylate, Linalool, Limonene, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Benzyl Acetate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citronellol, Benzyl Alcohol, Parfum

- Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycol Distearate, Cocamide Mipa, Sodium Benzoate, Parfum, Citric Acid, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Polyquaternium-39, Tetrasodium EDTA, Polyquaternium-10, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Polyquaternium-16, PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone, Limonene, Salicylic Acid, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Hydrolyzed Corn Protein, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Linalool, Sodium Chloride

Can any of these be used to clean the hair prior to CG? I don't want to have to start over if I can help it.
Thanks.
This ingredient here Sodium Laureth Sulfate is your silicone killer. There are more but that's the most common.

Although I'm not an expert by any means but the First & Third shampoo you listed both have Dimethicone which is a silicone although I think since they are PEG/PPG they are water soluable, but I'm not 100% sure on that. I know for certain Dimethicone is a silicone.

Either way I'd say use the second one.

Also this is really helpful for ingredient info. http://www.livecurlylivefree.com/pro...ngredients.htm

It's a great website and great info on ingredients.

New Goals To restore my hair after dying it twice in two weeks. Learning more about products found in the stores to fit my tight budget. I'm still working on trying to grow out my hair.
All three could work. However, some things to think about. The first one has peg hydrogenized castor oil...probably okay, but if you're really trying to get a deep cleaning, I wouldn't use it. It's too close to the top of the list too. I just noticed the second one has it too, but its further down the list which is better.

The first and third have more wheat/protein than the second. Everyone's hair is different. If you have a protein sensitivity, you might find it very drying to your hair. A good conefree deep conditioner can help to counterbalance it, unless you have an extreme reaction.

The second and third have polyquats. Some people have issues with polyquat build up. I think the type and amount used in these shampoos will be okay, though.

What I like about the third one is the tetrasodium EDTA. That is a chelating ingredient, which will help to remove minerals that might be in your water.

Those are just a few things that caught my eye. Maybe others will chime in.

Yes, the cones are peg-modified, so you should be okay.
Oh, also, the second and third have Cocamidopropyl Betaine, which is a good secondary cleanser to the sodium laureth sulfate. However, the second and third also have Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, which if I'm not mistaken can cause build up for some people.

They all have their strengths and weaknesses. Personally, if it was me. I would use the third one. I like that it has two good cleansers in it, plus the EDTA. I would need a good non-cone conditioner for it though, due to the protein.
