Well< skin is a little different than hair because skin is constantly shedding and silicones are wonderful for keeping skin moisturized. I don't buy into the idea of silicones completely coating your hair and wreaking havoc. I do believe that not all products work for all people, and I've said before that I've seen women with amazing curls who are not at all CG. I sometimes wonder if it's really more of the technique (avoiding excessive heat and brushing, being gentle with the hair) and awareness (knowing that your hair needs lots of moisture and/or protein) rather than the strict elimination of specific ingredients (sulfates, silicones) that leads to the improved results.
