Paul Mitchell Color Protect Daily Conditioner Color Care
Cetyl alcohol opacifier in shampoos, or as an emollient, emulsifier or thickening agent. Holds in water.Seems to be a conditioning agent (holds water, not sure about stickyness to hair)Long-Chain Alcohol - Heuristically can be considered a "good" alcohol, because it is too big to enter the hair shaft and so functions as a conditioner (coats the strand). Common long-chain alcohols in hair products are lauryl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, myristyl alcohol, stearyl alcohol, cetearyl alcohol, and behenyl alcohol. Used in excess can weigh down the hair, make it feel greasy, and clog follicles in the scalp and decrease growth/increase infection.

Paul Mitchell Color Protect Daily Conditioner Color Care
Panthenolcrazy looking chemical, apparently gives vitamind D and binds? I dont believe my understanding of this is correctIt binds to the hair shaft readily; so, it is a common component of commercial shampoos and hair conditioners (in concentrations of 0.1–1%). It coats the hair and seals its surface,[citation needed] lubricating the hair shaft and giving it a shiny appearance.Panthenol is a form of vitamin B5, used as a moisturizer and lubricating compound. This ingredient is listed in the PETA's Caring Consumer guide as a substance that can be of either animal or plant origin.

Function(s): Hair Conditioning Agent; ANTISTATIC; SKIN CONDITIONING

Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein PGPropyl Silanetriol
Keravis protein is a vegetable-derived protein and silicone blend that was designed specifically to strengthen, fortify, and revitalize dry and damaged hair. Although its composition makes it not Curly Girl-friendly, Keravis protein is able to penetrate the cortex of the hair, helping to build strength from within while coating and conditioning the hair to protect the surface. The end result is hair with significantly improved tensile strength, which helps reduce the damage our hair sustains from dye jobs, environmental factors, and mechanical stress from styling.Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol is a siloxane polymer.

Cetrimonium Chloride
Anti Static Cetrimonium chloride is a quaternary ammonium salt with penetrating, conditioning, anti-static, and emulsifying properties. It also helps to gently cleanse and prevent odor by inhibiting the growth of microorganisms, and helping oil mix with water to be able to wash them away. And lastly, what REALLY rocks my socks about cetrimonium chloride is what it does when combined with heat. When cetrimonium chloride is activated by heat (like sitting under a dryer, blow drying, and even the occasional flat ironing), it increases the tensile strength of hair. This ingredient is a MUST HAVE in any deep conditioner, leave-in, or heat protectant if you're planning to blow out, flat iron, or just maximize your deep conditioning.

Bisamino PEG/PPG-41/3 Aminoethyl PG-Propyl Dimethicone
Silicone?
Bisamino PEG/PPG-41/3 Aminoethyl PG-Propyl Dimethicone is a siloxane polymer.

Function(s): Hair Conditioning Agent
Water-insoluble silicones – if they are “water dispersible” I’m calling them “insoluble” because our interest is in rinsing them out, not formulating with them. Any combination of these is still insoluble. If they are in a shampoo, they can still deposit on your hair.
"Sulfate" shampoos and most "sulfate-free" shampoos will remove water-insoluble silicone ingredients.
23
Paul Mitchell Color Protect Daily Conditioner Color Care
PEG-12 Dimethicone

approx 1.5%? weird stat, but whatever
29
Paul Mitchel Original Awapuhi Shampoo
Cocamidopropyl Betaine
Emulisifier/surfactant/thickener

This sounds like something technical/trade secret because it reacts a fatty acid called laric acid and dimethylaminopropylamine (DMAPA).

I think this is a big deal because this is an extra step and I dont think they would do this unless necessary.
Surfactant - Foam Booster; Viscosity Increasing Agent - Aqueous; EMULSIFYING; EMULSION STABILISING; FOAM BOOSTING; VISCOSITY CONTROLLINGCAPB is a fatty acid amide containing a long hydrocarbon chain at one end and a polar group at the other. This allows CAPB to act as a surfactant and as a detergent. It is a zwitterion, consisting of both a quaternary ammonium cation and a carboxylate.

Paul Mitchel Original Awapuhi Shampoo
Tetrasodium EDTA
I think this is a preservative? I think fatty acids can become rancid? This does something to stablize? Not 100% sure. Whatever it neutralizes metal ions?
The reduction of water hardness in laundry applications and the dissolution of scale in boilers both rely on EDTA and related complexants to bind Ca2+, Mg2+, as well as other metal ions. Once bound to EDTA, these metal centers tend not to form precipitates or to interfere with the action of the soaps and detergents.
EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) is a chelating agent, used to sequester and decrease the reactivity of metal ions that may be present in a product.

Function(s): Chelating Agent

Combo of two alcohols for emulsion, moisture
It is used as an emulsion stabilizer, opacifying agent, and foam boosting surfactant, as well as an aqueous and nonaqueous viscosity-increasing agent. It imparts an emollient
55
AMODIMETHICONE
Anti-foam(maybe for inside the bottle), also used for conditioner + being a surfactant
Weird use, note that this is a generic name for the all encompasing "Polydimethylsiloxane"- PDMS is a common surfactant and is a component of defoamers, which are used to suppress the formation of foams.[
PDMS compounds such as amodimethicone, are effective conditioners when formulated to consist of small particles and be soluble in water or alcohol/act as surfactants[21][22] (especially for damaged hair[23]), and are even more conditioning to the hair than common Dimethicone and/or Dimethicone copolyols.

Methelyne Blue. It absorbs light. I believe this means that lgiht waves from Yellow to Red are absorbed and look black. This means colors purple through green are reflected into your eye.
95
Manic Panic Rockability Blue
C.I. 51004
Basic Blue 3. Basic does not mean starbucks. It means that it (might be a base?), it has a chlorine salt.
For example, C.I. 42535 (C.I. Basic Violet 1) is the chloride salt, C.I. 42535:1 (C.I. Solvent Violet 8) is the free base, C.I. 42535:2 (C.I. Pigment Violet 3) is the phosphotungstomolybdic acid salt and C.I. 42535:3 (C.I. Pigment Violet 27) is the copper ferrocyanide salt.
