The only 'cones in the HE Hydralicious conditioners are dimethicone (in all of them) and cyclopentasiloxane in the "featherweight" one. Luckily, the -xane isn't too evil because it simply evaporates from the hair, and dimethicone can be removed eaily with a sulfate or coco/cocamidopropyl betaine etc.
is this true? that a low 'poo like Burt's Bee's Super Shiny Grapefruit & Sugar beet shampoo w/ coco-betaine will remove dimethicone? I might have to go modified CG if I can't find CG products on the ground where I live. I can't handle the expense of internet shopping for a while. The few CG products I've tried are ones that my hair is coming to dislike...

I appreciate any and all the comments. I tried to find the curlchemist article but the tag i used didn't work so well...I don't know why I didn't search on "silicones"...duh

type "scoop on silicones" in the google search at the top right. It's the first one on the list I believe.

thanks Tinah, I found that article and it's exactly what I was looking for. It also answered another question that I was thinking about and posted yesterday so I'll go post the answer in that thread to finish off the topic.
