i really love the suave captivating curls whipped cream mousse. it makes my hair look very good but it makes it feel pretty dry on the ends. im not asking if it is CG, because i know its not (i am not CG). i want to know what ingredients are in it that could be making my hair feel dry. here are the ingredients:

Water (Aqua), Hydrofluorocarbon 152a, PVP, Cetearyl Alcohol, Dimethyl Ether, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Behentrimonium Chloride, Fragrance (Parfum), Dimethicone, Dipropylene Glycol, Lactic Acid, DMDM Hydantoin, Disodium EDTA, Amodimethicone, Methylisothiazolinone, PEG-7 Propylheptyl Ether, Cetrimonium Chloride

thanks so much!
Fragrance is a bit high on the ingredient list. Could be the alcohol in that causing the dryness.

It has dimethicone and amodimethicone, which are cones, so they could be building up and causing dryness if you don't shampoo or lowpoo enough. I also think there are ingredients in mousse that make it "moussify," (propane for example) and they can be drying.

I totally and completely agree with everything MountainCurl said. I find mousses in general to be a little drying. I've heard Kathymack say that the propellant for all mousses is drying. The 'cones could also make your hair feel dry. Also, it could just be that the crunch left from the mousse is making you think your hair feels dry. Do you SOTC, and if so, does it feel the same afterward? I'd experiment to see if it's just mousse that makes your hair feel dry, or if it's the 'cones. HTH!
