oVertone Fantasy Hair Color

Hi! I recently had my hair dyed blue/pink/purple at a local salon, and I love it! I am thinking about maintaining the color at home since it was SO EXPENSIVE and really doesn't last very long.

I've been looking at oVertone products for color maintenance. Have any of you used this? They have pastel daily conditioners that deposit a little pigment each day. HOWEVER, it looks like they contain a silicone (bolded below), and I'm concerned I'll get build-up that won't wash out with my DevaCurl Delight low-poo.

Any advice would be appreciated!

    Replying to myself here simply because someone else might one day have the same question. I just read this article:

    Amodimethicone and other Amine-functionalized Silicones

    TL;DR: "It would be necessary to use a shampoo containing one of the lauryl or laureth sulfates or cocamidopropyl betaine to completely remove this silicone from the hair". Luckily DC Delight Low-poo has cocamidopropyl betaine in it! Hooray!

    Lol was just going to respond about cocamidapropyl betaine. Glad you figured it out!
