Default TIGI Self Absorbed Conditioner ?

Could someone tell me if the TIGI Bed Head Self Absorbed Mega Vitamin Conditioner is protein-free? I'm never sure about what's lurking in these ingredients!

Deionized Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Trimethylsilyamodimethicone, Octoxynol-40, Isolaureth-6, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Chloride, Dicetyldimonium Chloride, Stearyl Alcohol, Fragrance, Cetrimonium Chloride, Aloe Barbadensis Gel, Retinyl Palmitate, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Ergocalciferol (Vitamin D), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Panthenol (Vitamin B), Cyclomethicone, Dimethiconol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Citric Acid, Disodium EDTA, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, FD&C Yellow No. 5, FD&C Red No. 40

From what I found through Google Trimethylsilyamodimethicone is a non-water soluble 'cone that is derived from whole wheat protein.

I know you didn't ask about 'cones but Cyclomethicone is also a 'cone.

Don't forget the dimethiconol right after it! I'd stay away.
