PM Awapuhi Moisture Mist Ingredients HELP!!

msgibletmsgiblet Posts: 5,825Registered Users
Are there any ingredients in this that aren't CG friendly? It looks ok to me, but I'm new and not so good at all the ingredients yet:

Water, Sodium PCA, Propylene Glycol, Bisamino PEG/PPG-41/3 Aminoethyl PG-Propyl Dimethicone/Hedychium Coronarium (White Ginger)/PEG-12 Dimethicone, Hedychium Coronarium (White Ginger) Root Extract, Spirulina Maxima Extract, Plankton Extract, Polyquaternium-4, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Lactic Acid, Methylparaben, Diazolidinyl PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Lactic Acid, Methylparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea, Fragrance (Parfum), Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Benzoate, Hydroxycitronellal

Since most leave-ins weigh my hair down so much, I thought this spray might work for me. I've sprayed it in my hair before going out on the beach & it made my hair feel really good, but I'm wondering if anyone has used this as a daily leave-in?

TIA!

    Because of the PEG before the silicone (blah-blah-blah dimethicone) and before the castor oil the same, it is CG-friendly. Polyquats build up slightly if you are strictly CG (never, ever poo), but if you poo even once every few weeks, it's low enough in the ingred that I wouldn't worry. I use polyquats in products as the 1st ingred after water and use a sulfate-free, super-gentle poo and have been fine, but, of course, it's very individual.

    Actually, the sodium PCA and propylene glycol being right after water, followed by some sealants (the blah-blah-blah dimethicone and castor oil) makes this an exceptional leave-in ingred-wise.

    To piggyback your question to LB, LB is the PM sculpting foam CG? It has the same cone I think. . .
    3b/a
    Cowash - No Poo
    Conditioner - One Condition
    Gel - Light Defining Gel

    Looking to try Devacurl Decadence line next! Can't wait to try it.

    That cone, as long as the PEG is there, is supposed to be water soluble according to our Curl Chemist's articles. She's so full of great information!

    Is this a spray leave-in? I assumed it was since it has 'mist' in the name.

    Yes, it is a leave-in; it actually says it's a hydrating mist for hair and skin. I tried using it as a leave-in today in the shower since I thought it might work well for me since my hair gets weighed down so easily. It turned out to be too light; didn't detangle my hair at all. :cry: Guess I'll just keep using it when I'm out in the sun at the beach, etc., works great for that.

    Back to the drawing board.

    Oops, sorry, Lusholic, I didn't really answer your question. Yes, it is a "spray" leave-in. :oops:
