In the CG book, the stress is more on not using sulfates. Then, because cones can build up without the use of sulfates, you also need to cut out cones. Also, I don't feel like the people on this forum are so controversial about cones? Like, a ton of us use them. That said, my favorite products are cone free and I'm pretty much doing the CG method only I use a low-poo each time a shower (in her book LM says wavies might need to do this).
