Water q.s


  • The decision to add silicones (or any other conditioning ingredient) depends on the performance characteristics you are looking for.  If you want a light conditioning effect you might add cyclomethicone but if you want more conditioning you could add dimethicone. However, if you don't want to add silicones you might not have to either.
  • Thanks perry :) :D
  • I like silicones because they give me shine and helo with detangling. dimethicone is a good choice i agree. like amodimethicone even better.
