Dimethicone and dimethiconol are an absolute no no. I have had bad experiences with them when I was using Dove.

I use Herbal Essences range of conditioners as rinse outs, co wash. They have bis amino propyl dimethicone. This one is scientifically modified so that it DOES NOT cause build up but it is not water soluble. Its listed as the 6th or 5th ingredient. it doesn't weigh my hair down though.

Few of the conditioners in Garnier Fructis range has amodimethicone at the bottom of the ingredient list so it didn't bother me.

basically if there are no silicones in the top four ingredients, then I don't mind.
I shampoo with SLES once in one or two weeks,but I dissolve it in a mug of water before pouring it through my hair and then lather it in. it cleans well enough. I also avoid all cones in shampoo.
Vinegar also rids the hair of the light build up I get.
My hair isn't weighed down by these silicones.
Sorry my reply is so long..
