My Hair and Silicones - Part 2

As most of you know I bought a huge stash of TRESemme conditioners at the end of summer because Shopper's Drug Mart had a really good sale. For the past month or so I've been using the Moisture Rich Conditioner and my hair felt so soft and manageable.This weekend I noticed that my hair felt soft but was brittle at the same time - silicones! What's a girl to do? My hair was at the point where it could easily break because of all the silicones coating my hair. I washed with Kiss My Face Big Body Shampoo, amazingly it took me 3 washes before the silicones started to dissolve off my hair. I than conditioned my hair with Kiss My Face Big Body Conditioner, I let it sit for about 15 minutes than rinsed, after that I did an ACV rinse (equal parts of water and ACV) and let it sit on my hair for about 2 to 3 minutes as I held my head down in my bathroom sink rubbing my scalp with the pads of my fingers the whole time. I rinsed thoroughly and braided my hair up with shea butter and added avocado oil to my hair scalp after I finished.

Natural products are so much better in my hair. What am I going to do with these liters of conditioners, I hate how it makes my hair feel after a few weeks. Silicones really do coat the hair and fool you into thinking your hair is soft when it brittle and dry.

You could try selling them on the swap board of any hair forums that you're a member of. Most of them have swap boards.

I just brought that exact same bottle the other day. I know what you mean with the cones, just washing it out of my hair and feeling the wax on my face makes me worry.

I plan on returning the bottle once I find my receipt :(
