Question CG shampoo?

Is this cg friendly? I need to clarify.


Aqua, sodium laureth sulfate, glycol stearate, cocamidopropyl betaine, cocamide DEA, sodium chloride, phenoxyethanol, glycerin, parfum, sodium methylparaben, sodium benzoate, citric acid, polyquaternium-10, panthenol, tetrasodium EDTA, hexyl cinnamal, disodium phosphate, benzyl salicylate, sodium acetate, silk amino acids, isopropyl alcohol, benzoic acid.

Thanks

I did see that in your other post and wanted to say yes, but this, polyquaternium-10, made me wonder. I wouldn't have looked twice at it before, but someone posted about it (I thought) so now I'm second guessing myself.

No, sulfates aren't CG, though many use it pre-CG to start fresh. Are you trying to remove silicone buildup? If so, I don't think the laureths remove 'cones either. In any case, sulfates are harsh on hair and will strip the natural oils so you may want to condition heavily if you do use that 'poo.

That cocamidopropyl betaine is a gentler surfactant than sulfates and I'm not sure why the polyquat is in that 'poo since -quats can cause buildup too.

Here's a wonderful thread on 'cones, 'quats and the removal of buildup.

That was my understanding, that she was looking for a clarifying shampoo before starting CG. If I totally misread that I apologize kat. My brain isn't always functioning at 100%. hehe

Oh dear perhaps it wasn't the best idea to just wash my hair with it then. Possibly just added to my problems. This stuff is all very confusing for my tired brain lol! Yeah I was hoping to start a fresh, but I guess Ill need to re-start a fresh again now. Any ideas what I can use? Ive been advised a baking soda rinse or lemon rinse could help. Thank you for all the help though. Im still fairly new at all this.

I hear ya', I'm still trying to get a handle on it all. That one thread I linked above is a keeper though.

I've not tried baking soda or lemon but I think you had mentioned in one of the other threads that you're experiencing scalp itch. Bar none, for me, a borax solution is almost always instant relief for scalp itchies (though I really don't experience it anymore unless I get a reaction from some product like the wildly popular Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Mousse).

Check out my products page at my Fotki, you'll see the borax I get (20 Mule Team). What I do is mix some borax with water (preferably filtered) until saturated (maybe just a bit of borax settling at the bottom of the cup).

I pour this solution over my head and gently massage the scalp and roots. I usually put conditioner on the length of my hair when I do a borax rinse but it's actually pretty mild and I've used it all over just fine. On borax days, I also use a heavier conditioner, then rinse with apple cider vinegar (ACV), then cool water.

I found this solution at one of my favorite sites, Earth Clinic.
