Default questions on doing cg!

Many questions haha
At the moment, I wash with suave naturals coconut condish as well as tresseme naturals, then leave a bit of the suave in. I use herbal essences totally twisted mousse. Is that all cg safe?

I have not been cleansing (gross, I'm aware) and am going to try a acv mixture. Will this clean my strands and scalp? If theres silicone in my hair will the acv get it out? My hairstylist sold me Surface hydrating oil and said there is no silicone in it, but the ingredients definitely had some elements with "-one" endings. Are there specific ingredients I should avoid? Can I still use this product and rinse out build up with acv? I know silicone is bad but the oil makes my hair feel pretty awesome!

I believe I'm 3b(?) Tight-ish botticelli/s pattern blonde curls!

If you have been using the Suave you have been cleansing, there is nothing gross about conditioner only washing, done well it is effective at removing sebum, skin cells, heavy oilings, many water soluble products.

Silicones are -cone, -conol and -xane not -one. If this is the correct ingredients list that product is packed with silicones unfortunately, can you return it to your stylist and teach her how to recognise silicones?
"Cyclopentasiloxane, Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone, Carrot Oleoresin, Argan Oil, Babassu Seed Oil, Linseed Extract/Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Flax Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Ceramide 3, Hydrolyzed Amaranth Protein, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Laurydimonium Hydroxypropyl Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Fragrance."

Silicones impart faux slip and shine, all they do is make the hair feel and look awesome, they do not nourish the hair at all but may block out beneficial ingredients. It's not so much that they are 'bad' but more that they are not 'good' for the hydration or health of hair (unless you are flat ironing). You need to use a sulphate or cocoamidopropyl betaine shampoo to remove them not vinegar.

If your hair is damaged or porous maybe try deep treatments such as coconut oil and honey, over time these will make your hair look at feel awesome, be healthier and more hydrated. HTH.
