I can't really work out what the product should be. Cocomidopropyl Betaine is a cleansing agent, often used in sulfate-free cleansers. But all the other ingredients point toward a styling product, like gel?
Polyquaternium-4 could build up but Cyclomethicone will DEFINATELY build-up and need removed with sulfates.
So by 'good product' it is NOT good for the CG method, as will need sulfates to remove.
As any random product I'd say it might not be too good because of the cleansing agent in it if it's not a cleansing product.
It's a mousse. Sorry. I truly didn't mean to make a guessing game out of it. How long does it usually take for a product to build up? Does one generally have to clarify weekly or monthly? Or - gasp! - daily?
Have had my hair short for almost a year now. No regrets! Still loving it!
Well see - as it has cocobetaine in it, which is still odd, the polyquat-4 will come out but you will need a sulfate for the cyclo-cone. It is bottom of the list so the amount will be minimal but everyone varies for build-up time. Personally, if I use a silicone product once the next day my hair will look awful. Others can use it without using a sulfate for maybe a week until their hair gets horrible. But typical silicone buildup leaves your scalp greasy and hair lank whilst at the same time looking really frizzy and just not clumping.
If you use a sulfate it should be ok to just use everytime you wash, and I think you could get away with 3rd day hair and then just shampooing every wash.
