I have heard a lot of natural hair gurus talk heavily about how silicone is the ultimate element.Since am natural now I had to do my own research as to how it affects your hair and so on.
Here is what silicone is
Silicone is almost like rubber and/or plastic. It is used as a sealant against water and even air. It is not a natural ingredient and its side effects are bad for our hair. It gives the hair the illusion of shine, but it is not the shine we want—it is a fake shine from the plastic.
Silicones damage hair by coating the hair in a plastic like substance, which hides any actual hair damage giving the illusion of healthy hair. Silicone damaged hair by preventing the hair from absorbing sebum, the natural oil produced from the scalp, as well as any other nourishing treatment you may use. Silicone build up can also prevent hair from coloring correctly, as well as being bad for the environment.

Silicone free conditioners benefit your hair health as they allow moisture to penetrate the hair’s shaft, so the ingredients can absorb into the hair to protect, strengthen, and increase the shine and overall appearance of your hair.
Nonsilicone conditioners like natural oils have a unique ability to produce similar results to silicones, which actually benefit your hair in the long run, rather than offering a temporary mask that will cause your hair to worsen over time.
Silicone free conditioners suitable for all hair types include our pre-shampoo treatment which is an all natural intensive treatment. It contains a unique blend of natural and organic ingredients to smooth, strengthen and restore your hair.
