*sigh* I've read all the articles in the curl 411 tab learning about the all the different ingredients and now I'm more confused than ever! LOL So I need to know if there's any silicone or other nasty things in these two products.
I'm doing a modified CG routine. I call it modified because I shampoo with a sulfate-free 'poo about twice a week so I don't mind water soluable 'cones. If I don't I get horrible build-up, even though I'm steering clear of 'cones and rinsing my condish out pretty well. My hair is a 2b/c depending on it's mood and the weather.
Anyway, on to the products!!!
First up: Loreal Vive Pro nutri gloss conditioner for curly/wavy hair. Here are the ingredients:
Aqua/Water, Stearyl Alcohol, Quaternium 87, Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, Behentrimonium Chloride, Amodimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Parfume (Fragrance), Polysorbate 20, Candelilla Cera/Candelilla Wax, Methylparaben, C11-15 Pareth 7, C12-16 Pareth 9, Glycerin, Trideceth 12, Hexyl Cinnamal, Chlorhexidine Dihydrochloride, Benzyl Salicylate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Linalool, Amyl Cinnamal, Hydroxycitronellal
Next up: Pantene ProV curl defining scrunching gel
Water, PVP, Laureth-23, VP/Dimethylaminoethylmethacrylate Copolymer, Panthenol, Panthenyl Ethyl Ether, Triisopropanolamine, Carbomer, DMDM Hydantoin, PEG 12 Dimethicone, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance
I know the PEG 12 'cone is water soluable so I'm cool with that. What stumped me was the 4th ingredient starting w/ VP/Dimethyl.... Copolymer. Is that water soluable?
Thanks so much for your help. I feel like my hair is trying
to curl and I just need to figure out what it likes. LOL I should change my avatar pic because I got a LOT of length cut off.
