Does Silicone Damage Hair?

1. Does silicone damage hair?

As a practitioner in the silicone industry, I am often asked two questions: Does silicone damage hair? Will silicon block the pores on the scalp? If silicone oil is harmless to the scalp, why do people now admire silicone-free shampoo?


2. What does silicone do to your hair?

First of all, silicone in hair products does not clog pores, it only forms a film on the hair. Secondly, there are hundreds of kinds of silicones and different silicones are good in different fields, so-called technology industry specializes. The silicone used in shampoo must play a role in the hair. Recalling our chemistry experiment in middle school, even the same kind of harmful substances will form different reactions under different media, so different silicone will be film-forming according to the different performance of media or emulsified into foam by the action of water.


3. Is silicone good for hair?

In fact, silicone oil is a non-toxic and harmless conditioner. If the hair is dry and fluffy, use a shampoo containing silicone oil to make the hair more supple and shiny. Why do you want to say no to silicone oil?


To be frank, the so-called silicon-free shampoo may actually be to save product costs. After all, silicon is not cheap! So next time, if someone asks you does silicone damage hair, tell him firmly: of course not.
