Default Is this a silicone?

I bought this new sulfate free shampoo called coconut milk by organix. I really wanted to try it but it contains "dimethicone copolyol" Is that a silicone?

It is, but it's water-soluble. It shouldn't give you any problems.

Here's the general removal table:

Silicones that have PEG- in front of them are all water-soluble. I think this is the only water-soluble one that doesn't, but I could be wrong.

I use Organix Coconut Milk Sulfate-Free Shampoo, and it always produces bouncy curls!
Use it!

Thanks, I am going to try it. I started to get the conditioner but I realized it had cones so I put it back. Thanks for the tip though.
