Can baking soda remove dimethicone?

I went home for Xmas break to Michigan and well... I had no hair supplies... at ALL, and I really needed to wash my hair, and I hadn't taken a shower in a WEEK (it was finals week... O_O) so it was a total greaseball, like sickeningly so. Like.. I find co-washing can remove excess grease for me and I'm okay, but I hadn't been showering at all and this was BEYOND help without shampoo (my own fault though) so I shampooed with my brother's tea tree oil shampoo and then I have been using this Loreal Moisturizing Conditioner for co-washing and rinse-out, but dimethicone is the ninth ingredient. Ah well. I figure I should use it as a rinse-out for the 11 more days that I'm here and then just go back to college. I bought some Suave clarifying shampoo (in case I need it) and Suave Naturals Coconut at Walgreens, so I'll co-wash with the Coconut till I go back but still rinse out with the conditioner with the cone so.... is baking soda enough to get rid of cone buildup? I don't really wanna go buy a low-poo for 11 days, so if BS won't cut it, I'll use the clarifyng poo with SLS once a week till I leave. And if I'm using BS, should I do BS, then rinse-out, then ACV (since BS raises the cuticle) or do the ACV before the rinse out? I can't use BS with the water I have up at college for some reason, but I CAN use it at home so I might as well take advantage of this if it'll work!

    I just saw a post on this, read the one titled Mineral oil or something like that.

    Aha, okay great, I'll try mixing 1T BS with 3T Suave Coconut conditioner tomorrow morning and see how that works for me! Maybe it'll give me a curl boost... shampoo gives me a curl boost (after a week of co-washing every other day and no shampoo, my hair is 2Aish and almost straight except at the bottom; this always happens to me [cones or not], and shampoo makes it curly again). I really want to figure out how to get a curl boost WITHOUT the SLS though hahaha.
    Okay! BS here I come!

    If you wash with baking soda, I highly recommend an ACV rinse afterwards. Baking soda is very alkaline and the ACV will return your hair to the proper pH.
