Sulfate free Cleansing Conditioners with Silicone Styling Products?

DaShelbsDaShelbs Posts: 2Registered Users
Hi guys, first post! I have one question- would a sulfate free, cleansing conditioner help get rid of silicone buildup? I don't use shampoo and co-wash instead. I've heard shampoos, sulfate or not, can get rid of most silicones but co-washing with sulfate free conditioner may not be able to. However, what about a cleansing sulfate free conditioner?

The reason I ask this is because I really want to try L'oreal Evercurl Hydracharge Sulfate-Free Cleansing Conditioner. But I still want to use one or two products with some silicones in them. Would I still need to implement an ACV rinse if I plan on using styling products that contain silicones, or would co-washing with a cleansing, sulfate free conditioner do the trick?

Thanks!! :)

    As long as the product has coco betaine it will take care of silicones.

    Now if my conditioner doesn't have silicones in it, will I need coco betaine?

    Not necessary, but it's a gentle enough cleanser that it won't hurt your hair if you use it regularly.
