Default Shampoo bars & silicones

Hello, fellow curlies.
Just wondering if shampoo bars remove silicones? I have a few sample bars from Chagrin Valley (no sulfates) and was curious about this.
Thanks!

I wouldn't think so just because they are made from oils and that wouldn't get rid of sulfates. Bobeam's clay bars (she's on etsy) might. Since clay acts as a clarifier I'm assuming that these would. Someone with more knowledge on this is more than welcome to chime in.

Would depend on the ingredients. The Lush bars use to have sulfates, so they would. Of course, then you'd be using sulfates. My answer to the natural bars that are cold processed soap (saponified oils) would be no.

Clay "detoxes." When it's wet, it absorbs impurities, heavy metals and toxins. Not sure that it would "absorb" silicone, which is made to be a "barrier" and prevent absorption.

Thanks for the response.

I generally avoid 'cones because I try to avoid sulfates, but after a while I get bored with my routine (don't we all?) and want to try new things, products with 'cones being something I was considering dabbling in again. I guess if I do, I could just whip out one of my old sulfate shampoos to get rid of the coating.

Default shampoo bars getting rid of cones

I was hoping to find an answer to this question myself. I have gotten rid of all sulfates and dont really want to go thru the hassle of buying a sulfate shampoo with all of the hair products that I have in my bathroom. What I will say is that I read on ehow that you can either use a clarifying shampoo or if you dont want to go the sulfate route you can make a homemade clarifying agent. The recipe called for coating the hair with 3/4cup of baking soda and then rinse it out. ( just realized I did not get enough baking soda at the grocery store tonight). You can also mix two cups of white vinegar with 2 cups of cool water in a plastic bottle and a a squirt of fresh lemon to make a clarifying rinse. then you pour this rinse on the hair after shampooing but dont rinse it out. now the article says that when your hair dries it wont smell like vinegar and it says you wont need to follow with a conditioner. I was going to try a slightly modified version and use my bobeam shampoo bar and mix in a few table spoons of baking soda and some old lemons I feel have been in the fridge too long.I was still going to follow with my jessicurl deep treatment . Just make sure that you are not conditioning or shampooing with something that has cones in it bc that defeats the purpose. The ehow article was about how to get rid of dimethicone build up . Hope this helps. I am going to try this tomorrow and hopefully I will be able to find this same post to tell yall my results
