People may know what is silicone,however they can't describe it in detailes,they only to know it wheny they but silicone products.Silicone is a synthetic (man-made) material. Basic properties which make it useful in hair products include water repelling (though not a complete hyrdophobe), smoothing, and resistance to oxygen, ozone, and UV rays. It is used in hair products to smooth the cuticle by coating the hair, thus masking damage, improving comb-ability, lessening frizz, and making hair feel silky.
It is said that silicone is contained in nearly every hair product on the market. The list of products NOT containing silicone would be far shorter than a list of those which do. Silicone is found in shampoos, conditioners, gels, smoothing products, de-tangling products, protective products, shine products and more. If we were to name specific lines, the list would be endless.
