Is there a such thing as a water soluble form of dimethicone?

I've read on here that it is not water soluble. However, I read a while back (I thought it was a quote from Ouidad) stating that her products use a "water soluble form of dimethicone".

I was curious because I really like her Climate Control Gel and it has dimethicone in the lower half of the list.


Hair Type - medium to fine texture, high porosity, lots of it, type 2b/3a
