silicone build up in hair
My usual shampoo is an Australian brand called Organic Instinct, and I had a brief look through the ingredients. Now I am no scientist, but I'm pretty sure there is no silicone in it, though I don't know how silicone would hide. It seems to me that my hair was doing just fine before I used that other shampoo, and now even though I've been back on my usual for three months now, it's still suffering for it. Also, it seems to suffer a bit after getting washed when I get it cut, and I've been meaning to stop it, but I like the feeling of someone else washing my hair. It's like a treat to my head, but not really to my hair.
Anyway, I tried Googling around for information on silicone build up in hair and what not, but all I found were stupid beauty magazine sites. I thought that here would be a good place to ask questions, so thanks for any answers! I just want to know how silicone could hide, what it does, and how to get rid of it without submitting to the marketing ploy that is salon shampoo.
