Cocobetaine and Dimethicone

Hi :) So there's a product I am looking to use, and the second ingredient in it is Dimethicone. I have a co-wash that has cocomidopropyl betaine in it, a little bit far in the list, but not one of the last ingredients. It's called Freeman Papaya and Lime Conditioner. Do you think it will get the dimethicone out my of hair if I use it, say, every three days or so?

Thanks in advance:blob2:

    I bought that same conditioner for the very same reason, to remove dimethicone. It doesn't seem to do a very good job. I put some of my dimethicone product on my hands and then used the conditioner to try and remove it and it didn't seem to work. So, keep that in mind and look out for any build up.

    Dimethicone is one of the "cones" that should be avoided according to Tiffany's new book. It's not a water-soluble cone so it will be more difficult to remove.

    If I only use it once, without washing it out, will it cause problems?
