Does anyone know if the following rinse out conditioners are cone free? Can you also list your favorite cone free rinse out conditioners and moisturizing deep conditioners?

Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner
Alba Botanica Replenishing Conditioner

I'd like to use these bottles up if they're cone free before buying more conditioner.

Thanks!
Look at the ingredient list. Anything ending in cone is a silicone.

Are you sure about that? I thought I saw some ingredients listed elsewhere that were defined as cones but didn't have cone at the end??

Can someone also tell me if Cetyl and stearyl alcohol are okay?

Also, my favorite deep conditioner (PI Potions International Supreme Treatment Masque) has dimethicone mid-way on the ingredient list and the above alcohols on the top of the list. My hair responds so well to this conditioner. If i use it only once a month then do my monthly sulfate clarifying shampoo a few days later would that be okay for my hair?

I want to try out this CG method and do it right but this is confusing I feel like i'm in a some kind of science lab trying to research all this
I don't know how many respomses you'll get, but lots of pple have their staple products in their signatures. Plus there is a review board and a fave of mine, the monthly hits/miss thread. Check those out on your own first...everybody's helpful here, just take a minute to check things out for yourself. It's fun to explore on here!

Yep...caring for our hair will require you to get in the lab!! Check out the article on NC about silicones-good list there.

Your hair can like cones. No rule about that. So feel free to use said conditioner if your hair love it.

Yes, if you want to try CG, you will have to abandon the cones

And yes, ingredients ending in -cone are cones like cocot said.

I think also -xane are cones

Someone just asked this question on the random thoughts thread and the link to the list of silicones and how to remove them is there. It is also on nc.com. Comes up in a search.

Thanks for the info. I don't have a problem with frizz or curl definition and my hair looks it's absolute best when I wash with sulfates. The no poo and low poo deals are okay and I do them sometimes but my hair doesn't look as good. I've been wondering if it takes time for it too look good and I'm assuming my use of cones is what's standing in between.

I don't really care what I put in my hair as long as it looks good and my ultimate goal is to retain length and grow it very long. Just wondering if this CG method will help me grow my hair longer faster.
