Amodimethicone and No-Poo

I just have a quick question, I cleanse daily with No-Poo, and from what I understand the new version includes Cocobetaine, or some derivative of it, in it's ingredients. I am a mod-CG, and sometimes use products with silicones in them, like Amodimethicone, if I understand correctly the No-Poo will remove the silicones everytime I cleanse because of the Cocobetaine in it? I also Low-Poo once a week, and am assuming if the No-Poo left anything behind, the Low-Poo would get rid of it.

I also read the Curly Chemist's article on silicones, and I know it included some common silicones and surfactants that would get rid of them. Every silicone in her article was removable with Cocobetaine, or a derivative of it. Will Cocobetaine remove all silicones, including ones that she didn't address in the article?

Thanks in advance!! :)

    To my understanding, cocobetaine will remove all silicones. Some curlies have a harder time removing silicones and they feel like not even sulfate shampoos will get them out.

    So, experiment with your own hair and decide for yourself :)
