Default Garnier Soft Curl Cream

So this is technically not cg friendly b/c it has dimethicone, right? From what I've read on here though that seems to be an easier cone? I'm trying to do this right and having a hard time at it.

Here is a CurlChemist article about silicones that'll help. Depending on your hair, dimethicone needs at least coco betaine or something like that.

The SCC is easier to get out of the hair as the link information says. I did find a conditioner with cocobetain in it for co washing
Papaya & Peppermint Extra Body Conditioner
That's the name of it, if you google it you'll find some places that carry it. I have no clue where to get it local. Anyhoo it should remove those easier to remove cones.

That SCC is nice, and it's great that it's cheap and most places carry it. Suave makes a curl creme now too that has either a water soluble or easy to remove cone, I forget which. I believe there is a thread on it on the review board

I can use stuff with amodimethicone just fine, but the SCC coated my hair and made it feel really gunky.

SCC built up on me really quickly. I guess it'd be easy enough to remove with a non-sulfate poo but I only use that on my roots and don't like having to shampoo the length to get the gunk out.

Freeman Sea Kelp Conditioner also has coco betaine (spelling?) in it. It makes a very nice co-wash.
