I love this shampoo. I picked it up 2 weeks ago. It is the best over the counter shampoo I have ever used. It does not strip your hair at ALL! I use it about every 3rd day. In between I cowash. For conditioner I use one of my many curl junkie conditioners. Just thought I would share.

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~

ETA: I double checked and it not only contains cones (Divinyldimethicone/Dimethicone Copolymer and Adimethicone*) but also has polyquats 7 and 10, which cause problems for many curlies.

Geez, I wish these manufacturers would get their ish together.

^ water soluble if accompanied by Tricedeth 12 (which this product has) and Centrimonium Chloride (which it does not).

Sorry I should have mentioned I am not adverse to cones. If I recall from when I did worry about them these are water soluble ones. But do not quote me!!

I like that my hair does not feel stripped-actually feels moisturized when done shampooing. Often the 'good' shampoos make my hair dry and straw-like. I like the smell too.

According to Live Curly Live Free, Amodimethicone with Tricedeth-12 and Cetrimonium Chloride is only water dispersible in the bottle. Once it's on the hair it is not water soluble, though it does repel further deposits.

A note about amodimethicone: if you do an Internet search on amodimethicone, you will find quite a few sites that list amodimethicone as a silicone that is "slightly" soluble in water as long as two additional ingredients are included in the formulation:

Amodimethicone (and) Trideceth-12 (and) Cetrimonium Chloride (as a mixture in the bottle)

The assumption has always been that the inclusion of Trideceth-12 (a nonionic surfactant) and cetrimonium chloride (a cationic surfactant) render the amodimethicone, non-water soluble on its own, slightly soluble in water and it could be considered okay to use. Turns out that has been a completely incorrect assumption. What the Trideceth-12 and cetrimonium chloride do is render the amodimethicone dispersible in water. Once the amodimethicone is deposited onto the hair shaft and dries to a film, however, it is not water-soluble, will prevent moisture from getting into the hair shaft and will require a surfactant to remove.

I picked up the shampoo and conditioner today! I'm excited to try them (I'm modified so the cones don't matter to me). I was pleasantly surprised that I like the smell. The L'Oreal Everpure stuff stinks to my nose but this stuff is subtler and not quite as fake smelling

Shame, because I'm so pleased with the CC, I would have loved to try the shampoo.

Great to know. I was looking at the line in CVS today. Very curious about the Evercurl styling creme/gel and the cleansing conditioner. Anyone out there tried them yet?

There are a couple of threads pertaining to the EverCurl line:

L'Oreal EverCurl line - anyone try this?

New Ever Curl Cleansing Conditioner

HTH!
