I wanna get back to the CurlyGirl method and immediately stop cones. So I want to clarify with my sulfate-poo for the last time. I, however, discovered that it also has a cone! Will this be an issue for clarifying? Or the cone will be obviously eliminated since it is also being accompanied by SLS?

What cone does it have? If it's cyclomethicone,it should evaporate after a while.
In my opinion,cone build up doesn't happen with one use,so you should be fine.Just wash and go on with CG.
If you really want to be super sure,try looking for small travel sized shampoo packs in drugstores.It's very cheap and you can use the rest as,maybe,hand soap or wash floors with it or whatever.

Actually LadyCelestina, it is Dimethicone! :/

My hair is already frizzy now and my curls are not well-defined, even though I did my wash routine in the morning, so I guess buildup has already occurred (since frizz & messy hair is there, can't absorb moisture?)

I guess cones start to show their evil face later on huh!

So I was lucky to find a shampoo without any cone; Dimethicone is literally everywhere! I found this HE shine shampoo, it only has a SLS, so I am feeling great after clarifying. Goodbye evil cones! I immediately conditioned with, again the only one which I found to be cone-free, Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine fortifying mask, I definitely feel better! Next time, with the first co-wash, I am sure my hair will be even better!

Now I gotta find a leave-in conditioner which is CONE-FREE in a market where cones are everywhere!

A question, if I use Vatika coconut hair oil once per week as a deep deep conditioner, will it help me now? Since I guess build-ups from cones were everywhere; probably preventing from any moisturizing.

...I read silicone build up doesn't look like frizzy hair.Actually it's going to be greasy or waxy feeling and weighed down - so has happened to me.Of course,it may vary,others might experience dryness.

My hair loves garnier products! So you say the mask is good? I have bought the one in the yellow bottle which is called oil repair ? and it made my hair feel dry.
And as far as I know,there are many cone-free conditioners from garnier too.
Do you currently use the conditioner you detangle with in the shower as a leave in?

About the oil treatment - try it and you'll see whether your hair likes it or not.Maybe you could google up ktani's blog - ktani's hair sense- and read articles regarding coco oil treatments.Or for lots of useful information in general :)

There are really lots of conditioners that don't have cones. I'm not sure where you're looking, but it shouldn't be too hard to find some. If you're on a tight budget, it can be a bit harder, but not impossible. Many or most Suave and VO5 conditioners are cone-free, Tresseme Naturals, Shea Moisture, Aubrey Organics, etc. Most of the "natural" brands are also cone-free. Try going to a Whole Foods or other type store if you're getting stuck.

I like vo5 shampoo and conditioner. If you want shine try the tressemee shine spray.

I wuv cones, and look at tori laflesh of tightly curly.... She uses shampoo and cones with abundance.

As for your question garner pure clean shampoo and dish, and tresseme naturals shampoo and dish are cg method friendly. Biolage balm is as well, and most of the v05 conditioners are fine too. I think finesse makes a low scent sulfate free shampoo in a white bottle. I am unsure if the matching conditioner is cg.

many curlies use a little of their rinse out condish as a leave in. Two birds one stone.
