    It's listed in My Articles but you're right, I can't see it in the articles section! I'm guessing it's being checked by admin or something? Totally clueless over here

    The articles now have to be reviewed by the mods before being posted The henna and herbal hair coloring article are in purgatory too.

    ETA I found this site: www.gina.antczak.btinternet.co.uk/CU/ING.HTM. It describes my Dimethicone Propyl PG-Betaine (in conditioner) as a synthetic silicone polymer, with functions being those of Antistatic and Surfectant... Is this a goodish silicone or one of the worst types?

    Sorry to keep asking questions!
    IIRC from the cone article, dimethicone on it's own is insoluble, as pariate pointed out. If it's hooked to a PEG or to another water-soluble cone like "Cyclopentasoloxane (and) Dimethicone" (must be framed between two commas, not seperated by one) then it's water-soluble

    Ok, thanks Nightshade. I guess that means I won't be using this particular conditioner. *Off to find some Cyclopentasoloxane, or similar...*

    I think people are missing the point of conditioners. The aren't just dimethicone. They have that as one minor ingredient in a sea of ingredients. If you take a conditioner that has dimethicone in it, it will wash off your hands. It may take longer to fully remove it, but it comes off. Taking straight oil--olive oil or otherwise, does NOT rinse off.

    People have to remember that you aren't conditioning your hair with dimethicone, it's just one tiny part in a bigger picture. The percentage is probably so small, I don't think it's that big of a concern, unless you have an allergy to it or find your hair just doesn't like it

    You make a very good point.
    I would think it would be the smae with sulphates, unless you have an allergy or something then it's just an ingredient.
