So, here's the story. I'm a huge fan of Clairol's Color Seal Conditioning Gloss. Where I live it is only available in the box of the Nice'n'Easy hair colour that I buy; it works better than any other conditioner ever, leaving my often frizzy and dry hair smooth, soft and shiny. If I didn't know it was science I'd claim it was black magic. It's that good.
The only problem is that the tiny tubes always run out too soon... so I want something like that in a larger bottle. Hence I'm trying to figure out what ingredients I should look out for.
Here are the ingredients for Color Seal:
Water, Bis-Hydroxy/Methoxy Amodimethicone, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Glutamic Acid, Benzyl Alcohol, Fragrance, Panthenyl Ethyl Ether, EDTA, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Sweet Almond Protein, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone.
What would be your guess - is it the special silicone that makes it magical, or a combination of ingredients? Is Bis-Hydroxy/Methoxy Amodimethicone different from normal Amodimethicone, and if so, how?
Thanks for your insights!
