    Cyclopentasyloxane is one of the more difficult 'cones to remove. Baking soda wouldn't do it. From the reading I did, it may need a few washings with a strong surfactant.

    I'm not sure what a surfactant is? Any product suggestions? Or what ingredients is she looking for?

    A surfactant is the "detergent" in the shampoo.

    Depending on what she wants to do, she needs to read up on the ingredients to avoid. If she wants to use sulfates, she can use anything. If she wants to follow a CG or modified CG regime, she can't.
