Amodimethicone and No-Poo

I just have a quick question, I cleanse daily with No-Poo, and from what I understand the new version includes Cocobetaine, or some derivative of it, in it's ingredients. I am a mod-CG, and sometimes use products with silicones in them, like Amodimethicone, if I understand correctly the No-Poo will remove the silicones everytime I cleanse because of the Cocobetaine in it? I also Low-Poo once a week, and am assuming if the No-Poo left anything behind, the Low-Poo would get rid of it.

I also read the Curly Chemist's article on silicones, and I know it included some common silicones and surfactants that would get rid of them. Every silicone in her article was removable with Cocobetaine, or a derivative of it. Will Cocobetaine remove all silicones, including ones that she didn't address in the article?

Thanks in advance!!

To my understanding, cocobetaine will remove all silicones. Some curlies have a harder time removing silicones and they feel like not even sulfate shampoos will get them out.

So, experiment with your own hair and decide for yourself
