just saw the ads for hercut products --watched the video bc i thought it was for a new haircut technique or something. so, another new product. since i have been CG for over 5 years now i have figured out my products and am no longer trying every new thing on the pike. so i heard all this hype about hercut and looked for ingredients. after a bit of a search i found
3.4 oz Long Layers Catalyst:
-Patent-Pending Inter-Spring Polymer: Encourages continuous fluid movement between the layers.
-Polyquaternium 59: Absorbs UV preventing "exposure" (protein and lipid degradation) and hair -color oxidation.
.4 oz Long Layers Catalyst:
Water, Cetyl Alcohol, Cyclohexasiloxane, Acrylates/Hydroxesters Acrylates Copolymer, Hydrogenated Castor Oil/Sebacic Acid Copolymer, Stearyl Alcohol, C18-21 Alkane, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Butylene Glycol, Panthenol, Abyssinian Oil, Avocado Oil, Cyclopentasiloxane, Linoleamidopropyl PG, Dimonium Chloride, Phosphate Dimethicone, Ceteareth-20, Dimethicone, Acrylates/Beheneth-25, Methacrylate Copolymer, VP/Dimethylaminoethylmethacrylate Copolymer, Phenyl Trimethicone, Oxidized Polyethene Homopolymers, Microcrystalline Wax, Polyquaternium-91, Sodium PCA, Arginine, Aspartic Acid, PCA, Glycine, Alanine, Serine, Valine, Sodium Lactate, C13-16 Isoparaffin, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Oleth-20, Aminomethylpropanol, Polyacrylate 15, Polyquaternium-59, Proline, Threonine, Isoleucine, Histidine, Phenylalanine, Triethanolamine, Fragrance, DMDM Hydantoin, Disodium EDTA, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate.

so it has both cyclopentasiloxane, a known HORRIBLE ingredient for curlies who do CG, and now cyclohexasiloxane--sounds like same thing but next generation? any curlychemists want to chime in on this one??

    I have no idea about the cyclopentasiloxane,but it sure doesn't sound good! Hopefully it won't start popping up on a ton of other products' ingredient lists...
    You would've thought they'd have made them CG friendly. It seems like half the curlies (or more) out there are CG. Or is it just me?
