I've found that where I use cones in my routine has a bigger impact on how my hair feels than which cones I use. I can use cones in styling products without any issues (even dimethicone- MorrocanOil Curl Defining Cream is one of my favorite non-CG products). But my hair hates cones in my cleansers or conditioners. Even amodimethicone. First day my hair looks and feels great, but it's all downhill from there.
