Before anything else, let's bust some myths. Silicones on beauty products get a bad rap, but these so-called "dangers" of using silicone have been debunked by cosmetic chemist, Michelle of Labmuffin. Silicones help smooth out the frizz and add shine to your locks. These benefits are the common reasons we spot them in most hair care products. Although it is a synthetic ingredient, it's okay to use a product with silicone, and it's simply a matter of preference. You do you!

If you're part of the group that prefers silicone-free shampoos, we totally get you. Some silicone shampoos (not all) may weigh hair down because they may be hard to rinse off the tresses. Plus, silicone-free formulas give an ~airy~ effect on the hair, especially during summer or on hot, humid days. Girls who follow the Curly Girl Method also favor silicone-free hair care products because these formulas enhance the curls and lift the roots.


In my personal experience, my hair looks more bouncy and voluminous whenever I wash my locks with a silicone-free shampoo. It's perfect for when I have bangs because my fringe never looks too "bagsak" or feel "malagkit."

Intrigued? Here are some silicone-free shampoos worth washing your hair with!
