One thing, I believe even dimethicone can be removed with coco betaine -

I'm still trying to determine if SM's poo removes any cones. I don't think so.
I believe it can too, I have no scientific evidence though, just my own experience. I almost never co-wash but I do use a cleansing conditioner with coca betaine (CJDF) and I also use Moroccanoil and it seems to work quite well. I think silicones are only harmful if you don't really use any sort of surfactant. Of course, cones (or certain cones) simply don't work for some people. Cyclopentasiloxane spells disaster for me personally, at least in a conditioner of any sort, though I'm pretty sure my serum doesn't contain it either.
