Ingerdients I should steer clear of?

I am terrified I am using ingredients I shouldn't be lol

I know sulfate is a BIG NO NO and anything ending in cone..

But what about the -anes and the -ones

Is this CG friendly?

    As far as sulfates and silicones go, these products don't have any. However, I can spot some proteins there (hydrolyzed wheat protein, some seed extracts, wheat amino acids,...) so if you are protein sensitive, you should'nt be using this stuff.
    -3b, high porosity, medium/fine texture (I guess).
    -CG-ing since 29/9/2008 (on and off)
    -lifeless, limp curls that need all sorts of protein in the universe.

    I've highlighted any possible problem ingredients for you. The second one is a polyquat, which some people find builds up over time. You never know, so I wouldn't steer clear of it unless you know it'll be a problem. The first and last ones are proteins, which can bother some people - but again, don't steer clear unless you know for sure it's a problem for you.

    As well as the cones and sulfates (and only the sodium laurel sulfate type ones - not benehitronium mesosulfate or whatever it is - that one's a great detangler made from canola/rapeseed oil), you also want to look out for anything ending in -conol, -xane (cytopentolixane is a silicone that doesn't read like one). The -ones that you see at the end of the first example are actually preservatives, not silicones.

    It's also a good idea to not use anything with mineral oil (paraffindum liquidium or however its spelled) in it. Lastly, you might want to stay away from the non-fatty alcohols. There is a list on here somewhere (do a google search for 'ingredients') which tells you which alcohols are good and which are bad. Hope that helps a little!

    Also - is it just my imagination, or is the last one Naked Rescue Intensive Care conditioner and the first one is one of Naked's shampoos (not sure which one)?
