6 Silicone Free Styling Products Under $15

6 Silicone Free Styling Products Under 15

Silicones are a somewhat controversial subject when it comes to hair care. Because of their ability to coat the hair strands and reflect rather than absorb heat, they are used extensively in thermal protectants and anti-frizz styling products.

Most silicones are notoriously water insoluble which means that they have the potential to increase build up in your hair and scalp. Build up, even when the hair is clean is characterized by hair that doesn’t seem to respond to hair products properly any more, particularly if these products worked fine beforehand.

You will find that by and large, a sulfate containing shampoo will be required to completely remove silicone residue from the hair. In practical terms what this means is that you should never have a sulfate free, silicone heavy regimen. If you want to do away will sulfates, you will have to do away with cones too!

There are those in the hair community who advise completely avoiding silicones for the health of your hair but if you plan to use heat in your regimen, you will be hard pressed to find decent heat protectant that doesn’t contain at least one ‘cone.

Here are 6 really good silicone free products.

1. L’Oreal Paris EverSleek, Humidity Defying Leave-In Crème

The supreme oil is the business!! The best on the market super light and yet it moisturizes and works wonders for flatironing.

That leave in spray is really nice. Pricey though.
