Ok, if the dimethicone has "ppg" or "peg" before it, it is water soluble. If it just says dimethicone, it is not.
Cg doesn't work for everyone, and some people have very little trouble with cones. You have to be sure you are using a shampoo that will remove the cones, however. I'm pretty sure Organix shampoos will, but are still sulfate free. I use Organix Shea shampoo as a low-poo sometimes, and it has coco betaine, which should remove cones. Some people still find they need to do sulfate poos once every week or so to really keep the build up from happening.
The problem with conditioners with cones is that they work GREAT in the short term, but you have to use harsher detergents to remove them. It's that cycle that causes the problem. If you don't fully remove them, they can build up on you and make you hair limp, or frizzy, or dried out.
Since curly hair tends to be dry anyhow, and sometimes tends to be damage prone (and if you add processing over that), most curlies tend to feel they do better without the cones and the cycle of removing them.
Cones make my hair feel wonderful! And it behaves well, too - but in the short term. But it won't take long before I'm paying for them.
But everyone's different!
