Can Shea Moisture remove silicones?
I currently don't use products containing silicone, but I used to love Aussie Moist conditioner and I have been having problems with tangling since I stopped using silicones so I might experiment with them again. ANYWAY, the point is, I use Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Shampoo. Is this shampoo able to remove silicones and why? These are the ingredients in the shampoo:

Deionized Water, Decyl Glucoside (Sugar Beets), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Vitamin E, Melia Azadirachta (Neem) Seed Oil , Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate (Coconut Oil), Panthenol (Vitamin B‐5), Rosemary Extract, Silk Protein, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower (and) Lonicera Japonica (Japanese Honeysuckle) Flower Extract. *Denotes Certified Organic Ingredient.

There was a list somewhere with recommended ingredients to remove silicones but none of them are in this shampoo, so my question is are the ingredients in Shea Moisture shampoo sufficient to remove non-water soluble silicones like Amodimithicone and dimithicone?

I don't think an ACV rinse will remove cones.

You can use a low poo (no sulfates) to remove cones, but SM poos don't have enough surfactants to effectively remove cones.

Try one with coco betaine - most of the Organix poos have it, but there are many other options, too. You probably wouldn't have to use it every time - maybe just once or twice a week. In fact, some people don't have a problem with amodimethicone at all. You'll just have to experiment and see how your hair reacts.
