Cones aren't necessarily bad. I think people translate them to being bad b/c of the whole CG thing, but really, they're not. Other than the cyclopentasiloxane, that causes a problem with some curlies.

But seriously, what is the issue with cones? Nothing really. The issue is that when you choose not to shampoo, then they will build up on your hair. It has nothing to do w/ the ingredients themselves, but rather, the fact that you've chosen to follow a routine that doesn't allow silicones in it.

If you follow a different method, or even have a different type hair, you may do well with these ingredients.
