Is Aussie Mega Moist Conditioner Safe?

Is Aussie Mega Moist Conditioner safe to use as a co-wash (or even in small amounts as a leave in or daily moisturizer)? I actually have been using it lately and it makes my hair very soft and light so results-wise I like it. I just want to make sure it's not actually bad for my hair. :laughing6:

Ingredients for Aussie Mega Moist Conditioner:

Water/Eau, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Glutamic Acid, Fragrance/Parfum, Bis-Aminopropyl Dimethicone, Benzyl Alcohol, EDTA, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Ecklonia Radiata Extract, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice

Thanks! :)

    I've never even heard about it being unsafe. Being that it's very popular and a staple among many people in the curly hair community, I'm sure it's fine. It does contain one cone (maybe that's why you're asking if it's safe?) that's not water soluble so you'd have to use a sulfate shampoo to remove it.

    Bis-Aminopropyl Dimethicone - special case, a polymer-type silicone that bonds to damaged areas and is not supposed to accumulate on top of itself. Only experience will tell how it works in your hair.

    It may or may not build up, but it's not really the same as the other water insoluble 'cones. If the OPs hair isn't too damaged, it probably won't be a problem.
