Default If a product has peg cones and non peg cones is it water soluble?

Ex. John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Luminous Color Glaze

Water, Propylene Carbonate, Alcohol Denat., PEG-12 Dimethicone, Dimethicone, Citric Acid, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Xanthan Gum, Dimethiconol, Oleyl Alcohol, Sodium Hydroxide, Propylene Glycol, Methylcloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothizolinone, Pearl Powder

I know this product is meant to stay in the hair a while and then "fade" eventually. I wonder if not using sulphates will just make the effects last longer (like it does with regular hair color).

I need something to add depth and shine to my hair, but I don't want to mess anything up. Maybe a coffee rinse instead.

If u removed the dimethicone u would be able to rinse this product out with coco betaine, but this product needs sulfates to remove. The issue is the layer it will form on your hair will lock moisture out... So u may have shine, but shiny dry hair does not sound appealing On another note, I hope someone else chimes in with better advice, cuz I know nothing about coffee rinses???

Coco betaine will prevent buildup from any cones, including dimethicone. Coco betaine is in many low-poos a well as some cleansing conditioners like CJ Daily Fix or DevaCare No-Poo.

Ok thanks for your answers

I probably won't try a coffee rinse right now as its too messy and I'm too busy, I'm sure there are silicone free hair color rinses. If I can't find one I'll just wait and maybe try cassia or henna/indigo.
