I have discovered that Suave Naturals Strawberry Conditioner and DevaCurl One Condition give me the exact same frizz and breakage issue. I also noticed they have a couple of similar ingredients, namely chlorides.

I am having a problem finding much information online about any issues with chlorides...I can find a lot about how good they are for hair. lol. I found one post here that mentions a couple people having problems with them.
I did use JessiCurl Confident Coils today and my hair, while it is not dry yet, feels amazing. I thought to check after
applying the product and it does have one chloride in it - the Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride. It is further down on the list...I will continue to use the trial size I have to see if I have issues.
So, anyway, I am wondering if anyone can help me out with information? Do you know anything about the different chlorides and any related issues?
If you have problems with chlorides, is it all of them? Just some? Lower down on ingredient list is ok/not ok? I know I will have to just see what does and doesn't work for my hair, but I would like to hear from others as well.
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
