Its going pretty good actually. I do think I'm going to have to do some clarifying, but with a sulfate free shampoo. Maybe Shea Moistures (BOGO half off at target right now btw.) My hair is actually a lot better, can hold more moisture for longer, and I can moisturize my hair as much as I need to without having to wash it. I like it a lot better, but I wont say it was only because of the cones, mostly the sulfates. If I could effectively wash out cones without a harsh cleanser, I probably would have continued to use it. How is your hair holding up? Maybe Ill do what you mentioned about the low poo, what do you use?
