Default dimethicone and amodemethicone question.

I just saw this on a thread. "For the dimethicone you need a sulfate. For the amodimethicone, you shouldn't." I thought that both of these cones could be removed with coco betaine. That is what I saw on a different thread. I know the dimethicone is the stronger cone, right? I have been using it in some of my products lately because I have been using low-poo. Please advise. Now I am so confused.

Yep, the coco-betaine is correct, unless they reeeeaaallly build up on you, then using sulfates would be needed - and if you had this problem, the amodimethicone also would need a sulfate to remove.

For future reference, here's the link to the article that details which ingredient removes what: http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlco...es.php?id=5341

Thanks for the link. How do you know when your hair has buildup? I know it can be dryer but what does your hair feel like when you know you need to get rid of the buildup? I so far have not had a problem. I know everyone's hair is different. But I am using both of these cones and have for awhile and have not used a sulfate poo for over a month.

Sometimes the hair will just feel "coated" after a rinse or may not want to detangle; when dry it may feel rough, look dull or suddenly won't curl uniformly. No problems = no buildup.
