A fantastic product for hair & skin! (Especially for those of us with MCAD & multiple allergies!)

This thickish, clear liquid has no scent—with an elegant texture. A little goes a long way—yet it’s not “greasy” feeling! I use it as a hair serum just after washing my highlighted long hair. It detangles beautifully—adding shine & volume! Am allergic to fragrance, all nut/seed oils, and most chemicals, so I’d given up on finding a conditioner or serum to use on my dry, tangled hair. This stuff rocks! I buy this in multiples a couple times a year! And it’s not only great for hair!
Those of use with severe allergies can’t find good body lotions, skin barriers or makeup primers!! THIS doubles as a skin barrier on fresh shaved legs—leaving my legs very silky and smooth!! It also acts as a wonderful face primer—not shiny, fills in fine lines, and hypoallergenic mineral makeup smooths right over it—no dryness or flaking! Amazing!!
I’d given up on being able to protect my hair and skin safely. Thanks to GOW pure dimethicone I CAN! And it gives me my “Pretty” back!
It easily mixes with the GOW Cyclomethicone which is very thin—if you prefer a less thick texture. (There is also the GOW Cosmetic Grade Mineral Oil to seal in skin’s moisture—and even to shave legs!!) Am so grateful I can find this product here! It’s very affordable!! GOW is a Safe Haven for those of us with seriously limiting skin allergies!! Please don’t stop carrying these options for those of us with MCAD!!
Customer service is always exceptional!

We appreciate your review, and ideas! Thank you!
