Should I use this product?

My mom was going through her bathroom and had a full bottle of some old ABBA Sets Liquid Gel Spray. It's full of extracts, which is nice (and some wheat and soy proteins, but I don't know how my hair will react to those), but has 1 silicone,Trimethylsiloxyamodimethicone, in it, literally 2nd from the bottom of the huge ingredient list.

Since it's so far down the list, it can't hurt to use once in a while, can it? I'd prefer to not have to do a sulfate rinse as needed, but am willing. Is there another way I can remove the tiny amount of silicone w/o sulfates?? I'd really hate to waste an entire bottle of free product.

    Eh...
    I'd try it! It's free product so why not? Haha.
    If it looks bad, don't use it again
    When it doubt, wash it out

    You should be able to use a low-poo rather than doing a sulfate wash. This gives a decent list of different cones and the types of cleansers that can remove them from your hair.

    Oooo, I don't think I like this product :(
    I sprayed some on my really nice 2nd day hair today.... it left it really, really sticky and crunchy. Plus, I can't rinse it off my hand with just water at all... Eh, it was worth a shot.
