Mystery product ingredients...can you guess what it is?
 
Quote:

Deionized water, hydrolyzed keratin protein, stearalkonium chloride, glyceryl stearate, peg 100 stearate, marine protein, peg 40, panthenal, dimethicone copolyol, magnesium citrate, allantoin, amino acids, methylparaben, mucopoly-saccharides, propylparaben, imidazolidinyl urea, fragrance
here are the ingredients for a mystery product that I'm really wanting to try. Please feel free to analyze :study:the ingredients for CG friendliness and to make a guess as to what the product might be.

I'll let everyone guess till 4:00 pm today, then I'll reveal the product. You will probably get a good laugh....

oh oh oh I bet I know!! Shaving cream! Or shaving lotion or something like that.

I have a shaving cream that I've been using for a conditioner occasionally heh. The ingredients are very similar.

really!!!! isn't there alchol or something in shaving creams? you must tell what you know, sounds intriguing.

ok, here's the answer to the mystery product: it's a horse hair rebuilder/strengthener. I have a question into the manufacturer about the dimethicone copolyol as they advertise silicone free products but there are huge threads online of people who use this stuff as their HG product....

One of the conditioners in my rotation is from one of those "romance party" at home kinda deals. Its more like a shaving lotion, and there is no alcohol in it whatsoever. Its in a squeeze tube. Its great for shaving! no razor burn.

They don't have the ingredients listed on the website, but its very similar to the ones you listed. The keratin is much lower on the list though. I'm so not posting the name in a general thread, but I'll tell you if you PM me.

so to answer my own question about this ingredient, here's the answer from a CurlChemist article " What's the Scoop on Silicones?"
Quote:

Silicone-dimethicone copolyol
Water Soluble?-Yes
Recommended Cleansing Agents-cocamidopropyl betaine, cocobetaine, other mild surfactants, or conditioner washing
If I try it, I'll keep everybody updated on what happens with it.
