If you are a regular cone user you might need to use a clarifying shampoo now and then.

It would also depend on how strong your shampoo is. Lots of variables. With my hair and the products I use, CWC would remove some of the cones but I would still need to do a periodic clarifying shampoo. I do mostly CO with CWC washes thrown in now and then. I used to be all CWC. I still had to clarify.

Cone removal depends on what type of shampoo and what types of conditioners you are using.

For example if you are using a non sulfate shampoo and a non water soluble cone conditioner then no CWC wouldn't remove the cones.

If you were using a sulfate shampoo and non water soluble cone conditioner then CWC would remove the cones.

I'll try to dig up an article on water soluble and non water soluble cones for you.

BTW The feeling of build up is pretty individualized. Generally for me my hair would feel lank, dry, and just generally unhappy. That was usually a sign that clarifying was needed. Most people shouldn't need to clarify more than once every month or two.

You are welcome. :flower:

Since you are using a sulfate shampoo then yes you are removing the cones every wash and then replacing them with your final 'C'

Their are so many cones it's pretty hard to keep them all straight. :lol:
