Silicones in hair care – there is a natural alternative!

Most of the highly commercialised lines of hair products (Pantene, Garnier Fructis, Aussie, Tressame, Sunsilk, etc.) contain silicones. These are ingredients that generally end in -cone, – conol, or -xane. If at all possible avoid silicones in your hair products.
