Silicone Free Haircare

I’ve noticed that when I use products that have silicones my curls go away. I’ve been trying to use products that don’t have silicones (it seems like every hair product has them). What works for one person may not work for you, but these  ingredients cause the same amount of damage to all hair types. A product with a lot of silicones that will coat your hair & you will need a clarifying shampoo to remove the build-up.
