Nope, it has dimethicone listed in the ingredients, which is a kind of silicone found in a lot of products. :x

It is CG. The PEG-14 DIMETHICONE listed is water soluble and can be removed with cowashing.

I thought the dimethicone would be since the peg is so high but I am clueless to all of the other ingredients. Im hoping they're all water soluable or at least can be cowashed out :/ lol

I'm not seeing anything in there that throws a red flag as far as causing buildup, but my hair isn't super picky about ingredients. Check out EWG.org if you want some slightly more in depth info. about what a particular ingredient is and does.
