Hi everyone, I have a question.

I'm quite new to the CG method so I wanna ask, do these ingredient lists have any proteins among them? Just wanted to know. Thanks a lot in advance!

aqua/water, cetearyl alcohol, behentrimonium chloride, starch acete, hydroxyethylcellulose, chlorhexidine digluconate, soluble collagen, limonene, linalool, isopropyl alcohol, cetyl esters, hexyl cinnamal, parfum/fragrance

Product 2:

I believe the collagen is a protein. And the paraben in product 2 means it is not CG friendly.

Ah thanks, didn't know collagen was a protein. And I thought parabens weren't that bad?

Any other proteins? I vaguely heard starch acete and hydroxyethylcellulose are proteins as well

Actually, parabens are used as preservatives. Some believe they are unsafe and avoid them. Never heard that they aren't CG friendly.

Good list of proteins: http://www.curlynikki.com/2009/01/pr...oh-my.html?m=1

Some other ingredients behave like proteins or react with the protein in our hair so some watch for them, too: AVG and coconut, for example.

I just double checked: CG book states to avoid parabens in gels but doesn't mention them as far as conditioner, aside from saying they are a preservative and controversial as some deem them as unsafe. So, I guess it depends on the product it's in as far as 'official' CG. My apologies for that questionable information - I should have looked first.
