Broccoli oil

Hello everyone 
I read about Broccoli oil and its benefits for skin and hair. But all through sites like blogs. 
but for the point of being alternative to silicone for hair.  Do anyone has the experience using it? Or any studies proof?

  • The rheology of broccoli seed oil isn't even close to silicones IMO. It has a bit better rheology than most other oils, but wouldn't consider it an alternative.

    I've seen Isoamyl laurate and LexFeel® Natural (Heptyl Undecylenate) touted as "natural" alternatives to silicone, haven't tried em myself though.
  • I agree with @Dirtnap1. Broccoli seed oil has nice slip and shine but I wouldn't consider it a true alternative.
  • Thank u all for the response

    I like isoamyl laurate, and it is relatively inexpensive.  Money not an issue, then daikon radish seed oil (Charkit) is the closest I have found to a natural alternative to low MW dimethicone or cyclics. Truly though, there is no substitute for silicone. 
  • Thank you @chemicalmatt

    I’ve had my eye on the Lexfeel range as well. Would you say Lexfeel N series might also be alternative to silicone? And is the Lexfeel N series truly natural?

    ive also seen reports that bamboo biofermment or bamboo extract is a natural alternative though not too sure.
