is silicone bad for hair?

Silicones are synthetic polymers that are often used in haircare products as an inexpensive way to add shine and provide a coating on the hair to make it feel soft. Silicones sit on top of the hair which can lead to unwanted buildup that can weigh down curls and block necessary moisture.

 

silicone free shampoo and conditioner

Silicone free shampoo and conditioner are better for curly hair because they will not sit on top of the hair or block moisture from getting to the curl strand. Instead of silicones, we use emollients and conditioning agents such as plant-based oils to provide the conditioning, detangling, softness, frizz control, definition, and shine curls need. These ingredients also allow curls to receive moisture without heaviness.

replacing silicone hair products

To be sure your hair products are silicone free, avoid the CONES! Read the ingredient list on the package and beware of ingredients with ‘-cone’ at the end of the name as they are probably a silicone. Examples include: Dimethicone, Amodimethicone, Cyclomethicone. Silicones can also be disguised with "col,” "conol" or "xane" at the end. By switching to silicone free hair products, you can expect to see bouncier, lighter, moisturized curls… and less frizz! Depending on your hair’s condition, it may take time to see the results. A great place to start is with a clarifying cleanser like Buildup Buster to remove product buildup and alternate with the appropriate DevaCurl silicone free shampoo and conditioner for your curl type.
