Products With Silicones

Silicones are commonly used in hair care products to add shine, smoothness, and protect hair from damage. Here are the 5 most common silicones found in hair care:

  • Dimethicone: This is the most widely used silicone in hair care products. It forms a protective barrier over the hair that helps to lock in moisture, reduce frizz, and add shine.
  • Cyclomethicone: This is a lightweight silicone that evaporates quickly and leaves a silky-smooth feel on the hair. It is often used in styling products such as serums and leave-in conditioners.
  • Phenyl trimethicone: This is a water-soluble silicone that is often used in hair serums and leave-in conditioners to provide heat protection and add shine to the hair.
  • Amodimethicone: This is a silicone that is chemically modified to improve its effectiveness in conditioning the hair. It is often used in shampoos and conditioners to provide detangling and anti-static benefits.
  • Dimethiconol: This is a silicone that is similar to dimethicone but has a higher viscosity, which makes it ideal for use in hair masks and deep conditioning treatments. It provides long-lasting conditioning benefits and helps to repair damaged hair.

Do I Need Them?

Whether or not to use silicone in your hair care routine is a personal choice. (Our Soft Bond Strands® hair extension clients avoid them at all costs because their hair extensions will stay stronger and last longer without them.) However, being aware of the potential negative effects can help you make an informed decision that works best for your individual needs and preferences.

You'll probably want to consider avoiding silicone in your hair care routine for the following reasons:

  • Buildup: Over time, silicone can accumulate on your hair, causing it to become heavy, greasy, and lackluster. This can make your hair more susceptible to damage and breakage.
  • Allergic reactions: Silicone may cause skin irritation or allergic reactions in some individuals. The film it creates on the skin may trap dirt and sweat, leading to clogged pores and discomfort.
  • Difficulty washing out: Certain types of silicone can be tough to remove from your hair, leading to long-term buildup that may require harsh shampoos or clarifying treatments to eliminate.
  • Interference with other products: Silicone can interfere with other hair care products, such as hair masks or treatments, reducing their effectiveness.
  • Environmental concerns: Some silicone compounds are not biodegradable and can contribute to environmental pollution.
  • Health concerns: While the safety of silicone is still debated, research suggests that prolonged use of silicone-containing hair care products may cause hair damage and skin irritation.
  • Preference for natural products: Many people prefer to use natural products in their hair care routine, and silicone does not align with this preference.

Ultimately, the decision to use silicone in your hair care routine is a personal one. However, being aware of the potential negative effects can help you make an informed choice that suits your individual needs and preferences.

Are There Silicone-Free Options?

We are excited to introduce you to Just Clean Hair™, a hair care line developed by Tiffany Twist to maintain the longevity and strength of her Soft Bond Strands® hair extensions. This silicone-free hair care line is generating interest within the hair care community due to its unique formula containing natural properties, including an active ingredient found in rosemary plants.

This ingredient has been found to possess healing properties for tissue and nerve damage, which can also rejuvenate nerves in the scalp, potentially aiding in restoring hair growth. In fact, the properties found in fresh rosemary oil have been shown to be equally effective against hair loss as the lab-made version of minoxidil, known commercially as Rogaine. With Just Clean Hair™, you can trust that you're receiving the natural version, free from harsh chemicals, and with the added benefits of the rosemary extract, which stimulates healthy hair growth.

Tiffany Twist's commitment to nature and quality is evident in her hair care line, as the products are made in small batches, mixed locally to ensure you receive the active ingredients necessary to achieve the results you desire. You'll LOVE Just Clean Hair™. Try it FREE today!
