We need some lists... 'cones, 'xanes and sulfates

I think we need a list of good cones and bad ones. I have read here that amodimethicone is water soluable and okay if you're CG...however, this article contradicts:

http://www.naturallycurly.com/curly-q-a/curlchemist-amodimethicone-and-other-amine-functionalized-silicones

Also, is a sulfate a sulfate? What are sodium c14-16 olephin sulfonate and sodium myreth sulfate? Are they just as bad. Should they be avoided?

Help...
Currently, using JC HCC, Too Shea, CK and CCSS, RR or LOOB or MOP-C.
CK is the one!!

as of 6/17/10 - I have to add Joico!

We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names and each is a different color. But they all have to learn how to live in the same box. ~Anonymous

    Thank you for the site. I can't get the sulfates page to work.

    I am suspicious about the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/DevaCurl-One-Condition-p-55.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=devacurl-devacurl-one-condition]DevaCurl One Condition[/buylink]er now.... since according to SweetPeas site...it contains amodimethicone and

    "Amodimethicone is never water soluble after being applied to your hair. It clings like any other silicone that is not water soluble."

    Ugh -- that SweatPea site is so unpredictable. Please try it again later. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and then other times, it just takes you to ads. I wish she'd host it elsewhere....

    Anyway, about the amodimethicone.... One thing that's important to remember is that when it is in a formulation with tricedeth-12 and with cetrimonium chloride, it supposedly doesn't build up on the hair.

    Many curlies have found they can use OneCondition without a problem and that the amodimethicone doesn't build up on their hair. Others, like me, have found that amodimethicone, even in combination with those other ingredients, still behaves a bit like a regular 'cone.

    Jillipoo... THAT was what I needed to hear. I haven't seen any other postings saying that people found that it built up...but that doesn't mean that they weren't there. I am wondering if it builds up on my hair, because the first day is great, the second day is okay, the third is flat until I poo again... hmmm...

    Yeah, that's what it did to me, too. I really wanted to like it (love that smell!) but ultimately, it just didn't "feed" my hair like I'd hoped (or Lorraine promised!).

    Sounds like you might have a product to post on the Swap Boards...! ;)
