: Do Cocamidopropyl betaine and other gentle non-sulfate cleansers remove silicones?
I have been under the impression for awhile that many silicones need a surfactant or sulfate shampoo for removal, or else they will buildup. However I thought gentle cleansers could remove the slightly water soluble cones and such. However I have been reading around, and most of the articles say Cocamidopropyl betaine and other gentle cleansers can remove all silicones... Just wondering if you guys think this is 100% true, and personal experience from those that use cones and sulfate free poos. Thanks
