Curly Girl/Healthy Hair Friend or Foe Ingredients: Sulfates and Silicones, etc.

Remember, sulfates are ingredients that contain «sulfate» or «sulfonate»; silicones end in -cone, -conol, or -xane but PEG modified silicones are acceptable; waxes contain the word «wax»; and drying alcohols often contain propyl, prop, eth, or denatured in the name.  Modified CG information is included as well.

Here is a list of sulfates to avoid: (“sulfate» or «sulfonate”)

Here is a list of waxes and non-natural oils to avoid:
Castor oil (Not CG friendly, but ok in the modified CG method and can be removed using a stronger low poo or a cleanser with Cocamidopropyl betaine or Coco betaine)
Mineral oil (parrifidium liquidium)
Waxes: bees wax, candelia wax, etc.

Waxes/Oils that are OK

Cetyl alcohol
Isocetyl alcohol
Isostearyl alcohol
Lauryl alcohol
Myristyl alcohol
Stearyl alcohol

Proteins (Some is good for the hair diet, especially damaged hair. However, normal hair, or protein sensitive hair could begin feel stiff, frizzy, and dry, then your hair is getting to much protein.)

Here is a list of proteins that you can avoid or look for, depending on your hair type (anything that says hydrolyzed, silk, protein, collagen, keratin)
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed casein
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed collagen
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed hair keratin
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed keratin
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed rice protein
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed silk
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed soy protein
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed wheat protein
Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl silk amino acids
Cocoyl hydrolyzed collagen
Cocoyl hydrolyzed keratin
Hydrolyzed keratin
Hydrolyzed oat flour
Hydrolyzed silk
Hydrolyzed silk protein
Hydrolyzed soy protein
Hydrolyzed wheat protein
Hydrolyzed wheat protein
Potassium cocoyl hydrolyzed collagen
TEA-cocoyl hydrolyzed collagen
TEA-cocoyl hydrolyzed soy protein

Polyquats (Could build up on finer, thin hair)
Polyquaternium 4

Cyclomethicones (cyclo-silicones, evaporate off of the hair and but may build up and may buckle the cuticle and make a ruffled appearance) (I would use these with caution)
Octamethyl cyclotetrasiloxane

Build up
It can happen from water soluble cones, cyclmethicones, polyquats, shea butter even oil. Finer, thin, low porosity hair is more sensitive to this. So occasionally do a low poo to prevent this. Once a week to once a month.
What does product build up look like? Heavy and coated, less curls, some have frizz.
