    used poly quat 10 in 0/5 %. it was good but not perfect, but i was
    wondering if Amodimethicone can solve in shampoo easily or it needs to
    be emulsifed?

    @chemistry8303 hello 
    I currently use pq10 too but want to use Amodimethicone too. I want to know if it is a good idea to use it alone or with PQ10.

    Some say pq10 helps silicone deposition. Some say it compets with Amodimethicone for negative charge. I am confused

    Hello @@Abdullah
    I have Amodimethicone and i know it can’t solve easily. it can use for another hair care product. but you can use ‘PEG 12 dimethicone’  as softening agent in shampoo. it can solve in it.

    Which viscosity Amodimethicone do you have? 
    Interestingly in dimethicone the lower the viscosity the higher the price but in Amodimethicone the higher the viscosity the higher the price. 

    Viscosities 1500, 2000, 3000, 10000, 30000 and 100000cps is available to choose from. I don’t know which one has better conditioning.
