Default Hair Product CG friendly? HELP!

I want to know about:
"John Frieda Root Awakening Health Boosting Detangling Spray"



I know it has a Peg dimethicone in it, which should be water soluble. I want to know about the Silicone Quaternium 18. The ingredients are:

Water, Alcohol Denat, Betaine, Propylene Glycol, Mentha Piperita Leaf Extract (Peppermint), Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract, Panthenol, Polyquaternium 4/Hydroxy Propyl Starch Copolymer, Silicone Quaternium 18, Cetrimonium Chloride, PEG 12 Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Calcium Pantothenate, Menthol, Benzyl Alcohol, PEG 40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Trideceth 6, Niacinamide, Sodium Starch Octenylsuccinate, Tridecth 12, Matodextrin, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Mentha Piperita Oil (Peppermint), Pyridoxine HCl, Salicylic Acid, Malic Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Silica, Methylparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea, Propylparaben, Fragrance

Does anyone know if I can continue to use this? It has worked wonders on my hair but I don't want it to cause lasting damage. Thanks! Also, I use a SLS free shampoo.

As long as your shampoo has cocobetaine in it, it should remove the silicones regardless of whether they are peg-modified or not. I'd be more concerned with the alcohol denat (denatured alcohol) in it drying my hair out more than anything else. It's the second ingredient.
