Silicones- what to look out for
•Silicones are essentially PLASTIC. While some drugstore products like Pantene, garnier, tressemè, etc. might make your hair feel silky smooth and shiny the first few washes, this is PLASTIC building up on your hair. The more you use these products, the more buildup you will get and you hair may become dry and brittle.
•Not ALL Silicones are bad- there are certain silicones that are WATER-SOLUBLE meaning they dissolve with water so no build up 🙅🏼♀️
•Non-water soluble silicone buildup is hair colors worst nightmare. If you have buildup, a clarifying treatment needs to be done in order to remove these before a color service. If not, the lightener/color will not color evenly and even may even produce a chemical reaction causing your hairs to get SUPER hot 🥵 or even melt off 😱 •Cyclomethicone and Amodimethicone are some to look out for.
Gimme any emoji if you learned something! 😘
