Default Initial shampoo to remove the nasties before starting CG

Hi everyone

Am a newbie - have bought all the new CG friendly products and am just about to launch into a CG routine. I thought I'd just look at the first post from Gretchen on this thread - to check off that I know what I am doing when I read about making sure you last shampoo doesn't contain any cones - aarrgghhh! The shampoo I've been using is, of course, full of them! However, I do have a brand new bottle of Kerastase Nutritive Bain Satin - 3. I had a look here:

and I checked off the ingredients on the back of the bottle and I can't see any cones. But, it does contain Acrolytes copolymer. I did look this up - some sort of plastic. Does anyone know if this is water soluble. Basically, can I use this product as my final shampoo before starting CG?

Thanks everyone
