Ingredient questions

How do oils (citrus and otherwise) and proteins (w/o heat) fade/remove hair color? ETA: And when can they remove color (just in the 1st ten days after coloring, at any time, etc).

Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
I'd love some sort of chart--what thick haired curlyheads need in a shampoo or conditioner, what fine haired curlyheads need, what wavy girls need, etc. etc. I'm totally confused about cones, proteins, etc. etc. I'd love some sort of mix and match system so I could say, Hey! Here's exactly what a color-treated, fine-haired, conditioning wash person needs!

I'm also really keen to see an article on the different types of cones, ranking in hardest to easier remove and which cleansers are needed to remove which ones. Also the severity of each cone in general. I have a conditioner that has tri...cone in it (really far down the list) and I'm scared to use it!

cleanse: OS shampoo. PureNuffStuff cleanser.
condition: Aussie 3MM. Jessicurl Aloeba.
style: B2Basics GreenTeaGel. T&G Curl Balm. JCarter Nourish&Shine.

What are these and how CG or friendly/non-friendly or coating or hard to rinse out are they?

Microwaxes
Methylparaben (all parabens)
Polystyrene


The last one sounds like a foam coffee cup! I found it in GF Brilliantine Shine Cream-Gel

how about somehting about oils?
im just so confused about them?
i know theyr good in dt's and scalp massages
but what about actually leaving them in the hair ?
i always hear oil are coating and leaving them in can keep the good stuff from getting in (kinda like silicones)
so is it tru? oh, and if so do they build up?
whata bout when u mix them with gel or cream wud that "emulsify" them?
Sodium Chloride is getting higher and higher on the ingredient lists of shampoos I've been seeing lately (i.e. Sunsilk, L'oreal Vive shampoos). I know it is usually a preservative, but when it's in the top half of an ingredient list, I wonder if it roughs up the cuticle or strips hair color. I'd love to know.

Kiva! Microfinance works.

Med/Coarse, porous curly.
How can we know if a product is "color-safe" or is this just a marketing thing? I know silicones coat the hair and seal in the color, but would a clarifying shampoo remove both the silicones and color when used, if a silicone "bonds" with the color? What is the relationship between color and products left on the hair (leave-ins, creams, gels, etc) as far as what fades color (glycerin, I've most recently heard, oils, proteins only in a DT or at all, citrus extracts, etc)?
Ok, so I just read the article on proteins (thanks for the link) but I still don't understand why, if proteins are so good for hair, my hair feels like straw afterward. And why if one needs to DT after a protien treatment, in what way are they possibly good for hair?
Only good for damaged hair and not for healthy hair?
3B, normal porosity, med to coarse texture

I'm seeing more & more products focusing on the scalp--claiming to promote a healthy scalp as well as healthy hair.

An explanation of hair follicles and what ingredients can in fact promote healthy hair growth and scalp would be nice.

I second whoever said that we need something giving an explanation of curl enhancing ingredients, why they work, what they do, what to look for and what to avoid if we want our hair to be as curly as it can be!

I would trade a cone/sulfate article for that one anyday, as the curl enhancing stuff can get really confusing and I would love a scientific breakdown!
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.

To echo laurabeth33....any help on dealing with hard water (what ingredients to look for, how to cope) would be extremely welcome.

Is there any scientific connection between cones and hair clumping? My hair seems to clump better with proteins, oils, or less cone-intensive products.
How about the acrylates and propylene glycol?

Keep the ideas coming, ladies. There are some great ones here. I will say that a couple of them are outside the realm of my expertise (hair color questions, especially), but I will research them and hopefully develop some knowledge in that area and be able to address those particular questions intelligently in the near future.

Most of the biology type questions are really, really outside my area (such as how to grow healthy hair/hair follices), so I will leave those types of questions to the biologists.
Since you said the coloring questions were out of your area of expertise, this question might also fall in tha area. How about something for the one's who are letting their hair go gray? What keeps the silver/white color and what to avoid having it turn yellow?
