Silicate & Silicone Hair Products: The Real Dirt reposted from Naturally Curly


I have taken another look at products that contain silicones.  When I first became natural I decided that I would not use anything that had the word “cone” in the ingredients.  Now I am revisiting my position.  As my hair grows it is also changing.  Some products I used in the beginning of my journey no longer work for me. 

I don’t use shampoo, however, I do use Tresemme Curl Hydration Conditioner and it does contain silicones but my hair responds to it.  In the last 6 months I have tried almost every natural hair conditioner on the market and my hair was dry, dull.  So I tried the Curl Hydration and my hair has been taken to another level.

I am not the Natural Hair Police and I will not tell you don’t use this or that…Use what works for you and DO NOT let anyone make you feel guilty for your choice….Your Hair, Your choice!!

  1. She Natural says:

    Great article and I totally agree with you. My hair seems to respond better with the cones. It’s got a healthy shine and Is much more manageable since I’ve gone back to the cones.

  2. Silicones really do provide so many good benefits to how your hair looks. While I do work for a silicone manufacturer (full disclosure) I’ve used products that do contain them and products that don’t and I’ve got to say, my hair looks better using ones that do. I think silicones get an unjust bad reputation. Thanks for being an advocate!
