    This has no cones that I see, but it's loaded with parabens. It looks CG to me.

    This doesn't have silicones either.

    Thanks! :)

    Silicones:
    (-xane, -cone)

    Parabens
    : (methyl-, ethyl-, propyl-, and butylparaben): Are used as preservatives and considered to be very effective biocides against yeasts, molds, and bacteria. They can be washed out with water (water soluble). They are CG friendly, but some people avoid them.

    From what I see they are CG. However the first one appears to me to be a hairspray or mousse, so be careful about it drying your hair out. Most aerosol products contain ingredients that are CG, but that aren't exactly good for your hair. CG isn't just about stopping sulfates and silicones, it's about getting your hair healthy and happy. Most of us avoid products that dry our hair out, because curly hair is healthiest and happiest when it's moisturized. They are plenty of ladies around here who use hairspray (myself included) and mousse, just be careful that your hair doesn't get dry. HTH :)

    Thanks, guys.

    smasters467, I'm kinda afraid of using anything drying too often, as my hair is unbelievably dry to begin with. Using gel however (as opposed to mousse) makes me very frizzy. I haven't been able to find a CG styling cream yet (I live in Germany, where CG products are few and far in between, unfortunately :-().
