Is that a cone??!

Hey!
I recently checked the label of a mousse that I use daily for over half a year. And it said it has
Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde

That -xene thing is a cone, right? I feel pretty dumb that I haven't noticed it before...but if it IS a cone than that would be the reason why my hair always gets so build-uppy and I'm not very successful with cowashing...Wow, that would be really great.
So, can anyone help me out?
Thanks!

Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde

Q: What is hydroxyisohexyl 3-cyclohexene carboxaldehyde?

McKay: While this question came from the same community member, it was particularly relevant to this month’s column because this is also one of the many fragrance ingredients used in cosmetics and toiletries.

Hydroxyisohexyl 3-cyclohexene carboxaldehyde is the INCI name (commercial name is Lyral), and it is known for its mild floral and slightly woody fragrance.

The products in your sig. Is that what you're using?
If you can list their ingredients, I'm sure we can help.

Cones are -zane not -zene. Hope that helps.
Yeah, it's in the Nivea flexible curls mousse (I don't know if that's available in the US).

that's the whole ingredients list:

Aqua,Parfum,Isobutane, VP/VA Copolymer, Propane, Polyquaternium-68, Polyquaternium-4, Aloe Barbadensis, Panthenol, Niaciamide, Cetrimonium Chloride, Hydroxyethyl, Cetyldimonium Phosphate, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Butane, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Propylparaben, Hexyl Cinnamal, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Linalool, Citronellol, Geraniol, Hydroxysohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Alpha-Isomerhyl Ionone


But if the -xene is not a cone, then I guess I'm at a loss again...

Silicone ingredients end in -cone,-conol, or -xane.

Oh, and the copolymer and/or the polyquats could be it. They bother some with build up.

I will check my products for the copolymer and the polyquats and leave them out and see what happens

What are the ingredients for the Garnier Fructis Oil Repair? That could be causing some buildup depending what is in it and/or could be too heavy for your hair...
2b/3a, normal/high porosity, fine/medium texture, medium density, low elasticity

Low Poo- Tigi Colour Goddess, Giovanni 50:50, Giovanni TTT (clarify 1X/week)
Condish- CJ Curl Rehab, Giovanni 50:50, Giovanni TTT
Leave In- Slip Detangler, KCKT, Redken Curl Refiner
Style- KCCC, SS CEJ, SS FHG
Treatment- CJ Repair Me! and CJ CR

Dislikes: Too much protein, high glycerin content, and heavy oils
Aqua/Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Elaeis Guineesis Oil, Palm Oil, Behentrimonium Chloride, CI 19140, Yellow 5, CI 15985, Yellow 6, Niacinamide, Ribes Nigrum Oil, Black Currant Seed Oil, Saccharum Officinarum Extract, Sugar Cane Extract, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Olea Europaea Oil, Olive Fruit Oil, Chlorhexidine Dihydrochloride, Camellia Sinensis Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Benzylalcohol, Linalool, Pyrus Malus Extract, Apple fruit Extract, Pyridoxine HCI, Persea Gratissima, Avocado Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter, Shea Butter, Citric Acid, Citrus Medica Limonum Peel Extract, Lemon Peel Extract, Glycerin, Parfum, Fragrance FIL C35637/1

That's in the Garnier conditioner...
It actually might be that all the oils are too heavy for my hair, and also it has alcohol in it. I also know my hair doesn't do so well with Glycerin sometimes, but I suppose it's not the cause for the build-up...?

Most people need to clarify occasionally, even if they are not using any problematic ingredients. It's just part of the cycle.

I find that since my hair is much healthier than it was, it can handle 1 sulfate poo a week...

And, unfortunetely, a sulfate shampoo seems to be the only thing that really gets my scalp clean, I tried sugar scrubs and a sulfate free poo and both just worked for a couple of washes...I kind of really want to get rid of the sulfates since they don't make my hair look/feel too great, but at least make my scalp clean so I'm torn in between.
I might just start new, using a lighter conditioner and just my gel that actually says "no residue" on it, and see what will happen...

The ones that I were using did, but these were also the sulfate shampoos. Now I'm using Dr. Bronners soap which doesn't have it in it.
Would that cocobetiane build up too?

I saw there was castor oil in the mousse which also causes build up problems for some people. I remember kathymack has said she used a product with that in it and said it took awhile for her her to return to normal.
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Repair Me, CJ Smoothing

jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC, UFD Curly Magic
gels: CJ CQ, BRHG

Be sure when you wash that you really scrub your scalp with your finger tips. Rub until your arms want to rub off. Movement and agitation cleanse your scalp.

Build up- polyquats can build up. Oils can be too heavy for some hair. The alcohol is a moisturizing one so that isn't the problem.

I really recommend buying the ebook from Live Curly Live Free. It lists ingredients, tips and much more.

Be sure to keep a journal so you know what works and what doesn't.
