Dimethicone is harder to remove. It's considered to be one of the heaviest silicones. HTH

both of the cones are the easier ones to remove but for me demithicone builds up faster. I can use the amethicone pretty freely and I generally do, espeically as it gets rainy and hot here.
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

They both build up pretty quickly on me but amodimethicone seems to break me out more.
I prefer PEG modified dimethicone to any other cones.

On me, dimethicone builds up immediately. It leaves my hair coated, stringy, brittle.

Amodimethicone is the total opposite. I haven't seen build up since using a product with it.
