Default Elasta QP creme shampoo

is this strong enough to remove amodimethicone?

WATER, COCAMPHOCARBOXYPROPLONATE, COCAMIDE MEA, POLYQUATERNIUM-10, GLYCOL DISTEARATRE, CITRIC ACID, DMDM HYDANTOIN, FRAGRANCE, FD&C YELLOW # 5 (C119140), FD&C YELLOW #6 (C115985), FD&C RED #40 (C116035), FD&C BLUE #1 (C142090)

I read that this has a ph of 5.5. Would this also work as a hair neutralizer after chemical processes? curious....

thanks

Based on this the Tightly Curly website it would not be strong enough. The cocamp ingredient is a very mild detergent.

I would suggest Nourish Shampoo from Trader Joes, it's only $2.99 and it contains a mild betaine that will remove the A-cone.

Here is the link: http://www.tightlycurly.com/ingredients/

oh dang, I thought this was sounding right up my alley. it sounds so moisturizing, I was hoping it would remove the a-cone.

so a shampoo has to have coco betaine to remove the a-cone, other cocos won't work? thanks

This shampoo contains polyquaternium-10 which is a conditioning polymer, so it is depositing it on your hair... and not removing buildup from 'cones if you have cone build up. Basically if you want to clarify your hair, you can't do it with a conditioning shampoo like this one. That being said, I use this shampoo & like it a lot.

If you want, you can use a shampoo with sulfates in it, and heavily dilute it. I sometimes (rarely) use a sulfate shampoo & use 3 parts water to 1 part shampoo. Works fine for me.
