You see you cant get it twisted, silicones are barriers too much like oils* but if you compare a silicone to a pure natural oil, which one will get the big C for crap? We really doubt it will be the oil.
When you have what is considered a well made product, be careful of ingredients like silicones that trick you into believing that your hair is healthy.
There is nothing wrong with a glaze or a shine product or even silicones as long has you know what it is that you are using it for and not have any unrealistic expectations.
Your hair strand unlike a living creature does not need to ‘breath’ in the manner that she mentioned during the Google hangout.
Hair is a fiber, it is dead, so we use products to preserve our strands so that we can retain length. Moisture and oil do just that, they work together to give your hair movement so that it does not dry out and break off like any other fiber would do when subject to heat, a harsh environment or constant manipulation.
On the other hand your scalp and hair follicles are a little different, much of what happens there is driven by our health not to mention our scalp is expertly designed to moisturize itself with sebum, all things remaining equal of course.
When a product company is talking about their products sometimes they can get a bit over zealous and forget about the science behind certain things. The moral of this story is, just take what you can from the conversation and leave behind the rest, buy products because you like them but also because you know everything you need to know about it because it is going on your hair.
Finally the proof is always in the pudding, we have so many women who seal with oils* who have gorgeous healthy waist length hair, so if it ain’t broke.. you know the rest right? So what do you ladies think of their statement?
