    Default Nexxus Dualiste Leave-In Conditioning Spray

    I admit I'm a bit daft when it comes to cause and effect, especially with hair products. Does anyone have any idea why Nexxus Dualiste Color Protection + Intense Hydration Daily Leave-In Conditioning Spray would make my hair dry and crunchy instead of "silky soft and luxuriously healthy"? Could it be the cones? But my hair likes cones ...

    Here are the ingredients:

    Water (Aqua, Eau), Amodimethicone, Glycerin, Polysilicone-18 Cetyl Phosphate, Polysorbate 20, Fragrance (Parfum), Propylene Glycol, PEG-12 Dimethicone, PVP, Stearalkonium Chloride, Trideceth-12, Cetrimonium Chloride, Aminopropyl Dimethicone, Triethanolamine, DMDM Hydantoin, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Benzophenone-4, Ethylhexyl Dimethyl PABA, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Extract, Geranium Maculatum Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Honey Extract (Mel, Extrait de Miel)

    Have you used those particular cones? Because my hair only gets along with some cones and others produce that crunchy feeling.

    Argh! I didn't know there was a difference in cones ... I thought a cone was a cone was a cone!

    Glycerin makes my hair sticky and dry. I didn't use it long enough to find out if it would make it crunchy and dry, though.

    To my hair they do. After all the crunchy ends I got when I started I looked out the bottles of all my products and they all had a similar cone so when I got away from that one it made a world of difference. But I might just be an oddball.

    I just checked a bottle of Aussie Hair Insurance which also makes my hair crunchy and not soft - and it does not contain glycerin, but it does contain amodimethicone, just like the Nexxus spray. However, I use Tresemme shampoo/conditioner with dimethecone and my hair likes it. So now I am wondering what the big difference is between amodimethicone and dimethicone ... if any at all? And if there is no difference, I wonder if it is the method of application then, lather/rinse versus leave-in that bothers me.

    Amodimethicone (aka Amine functional siloxane)
    Caution
    Used for conditioning, and makes it easier for a comb to glide through the hair. A type of silicone [Begoun (Cosmetics) pg 1247]. Amodimethicone is only used as a mixture with Tallowtrimonium chloride and Nonoxynol-10. This makes it an emulsion, so it can be used in a water-based products (Amodimethicone by itself is not water soluble). This is one of the lighter silicones because it's a mixture, and studies have found that it tends not to build up in the hair with repeated use [Hunting (Conditioning) pg 110]. This belongs to the Amino functional group of siloxanes. Though considered excellent hair conditioners, they are known to be irritating to the skin [Schueller pgs 179-180].—I'm putting this as a caution because one of the ingredients in this mixture, Tallowtrimonium chloride, has Isopropanol in it, which can be drying, and it's also very irritating to eyes and skin. This would be fine in something you would rinse out, or if it's pretty far down on the ingredient list. But I'd be really cautious about using this on a child, or if you have very sensitive skin.—T

    It mights be the amodimenthicone that is from the tightlycurly website. Which even if you dont have curly hair is a good resource.
