Maybe that Cetrimonium Chloride isn't bad alone then. The site did say that when it was mixed with Amodimethicone (and) Trideceth-12 it creates a mixture that is water soluble in the bottle. Guess it's not so good on the hair once ya put it on. Who knows. I do remember a stylist telling me that the main ingredients in drugstore shampoos are salt and water, which strip the hair and so on. So if Cetrimonium Chloride is okay by itself, then knock yourself out. TTFN
