Thread: Silicone in shampoo

    They help with slip, not a bad thing in a shampoo. Also, a blanket silicone hatred/fear/avoidance is really not useful anymore ... imho at least ... as there are so many different ones, the science has improved, the silicones themselves have improved, etc. etc. Pluswhich, they're in nearly everything cosmetically. Face care, toothpaste, you name it.

    And it's not a bad idea to clarify every so often anyway

    You know, there used to be a time, years ago on here, that I had this "thing" where I picked every ingredient list apart. I mean, it's like a grieving process, but you could call it part of LHC'itis, I think. You go through a phase of experimenting with every food item in your cupboard (so to speak), then you try the natural dyes, then you pick apart ingredient lists. Part and parcel of coming to this site, LOL!

    Anyway, I am still as clueless, but I no longer read labels. What I have learned is that *everything* depends on formulation. You can have dimethicone in 2 products and they can both be totally different, because there are other ingredients and you never know what "does it" (in a good or bad way).

    Best thing for tangles I've found is wait for it to dry

    You're in no hurry, right?

    Exactly what Brad Mondo said in his latest video. Don't force your way through tangles (if your hair is relatively straight), but wait for it to dry, then try again. If your hair can hold up to a brush. Mine can't (when it's dry).

    Gosh this is so relatable. A few years back when I first lurked this forum I was just like that, tried all the herbal stuff and had the ingredient blacklist and it probably made my hair worse from manipulation, constantly bring wet, trying styles, ect. Deciding to practice benign neglect ended up being what made my hair grow ironically

    I like silicones in shampoos. Helps it gets less tangled in the shower. Just be sure to know the signs of buildup on your hair and clarify when its needed and you're golden! I honestly love cones, my hair was less happy when I was cone free.

    I had (and have) the very same experience. So now I stick to a basic routine, use whatever strikes my fancy (with the knowledge of what clarifying is) and just let it be. Best thing ever!

    Thanks for all the advice. My hair seems a lot more manageable now with silicone, it makes a difference.
