Default Color-treated hair and 'cones

I did some searches and couldn't find a definite answer.

I colored my hair, which of course means I have to keep my hair super moisturized and i have been unable to find a decent DC so my hair is dry (not super dry because my BRBC and sealing helps but still....). I was thinking about going back to Aussie 3 minute miracle but it has 'cones.

So my question is would the 'cones just "hide" the fact that my hair is dry or would it help my hair be more moisturized? Because I don't want to ruin my hair thinking its all moisturized and healthy when its not.

TIA!

My hair is color treated & I use Lustrasilk mango & shea butter cholesterol or a banana/yogurt DC w/EVOO. I just put a plastic cap on and leave it on a few hours.

Yes cones can help seal moisture in your hair depending on the cone, but it also requires the use of sulfates to remove the cones. Sulfates will also make your color fade faster. You should be fine if your hair is dark, but if you have reddish tones it will fade them rather quickly.

You don't necessarily need sulfates to remove silicone. I color, have done so for years and do not use sulfates on my hair, while experimenting with 'cones. I use a gentle shampoo containing coco-betaine to remove the silicones and experience no buildup. See the link below:

What's the Scoop on Silicones?

I regularly use DermOrganics leave-in treatment (full of 'cones to process and seal my color, I use a condish from EO which has silicones and I experiment here and there with products containing amodimethicone and dimethicone, among others. I say just be careful, don't overdo the usage of cones and make sure you are getting enough proper moisture to your hair. And protein. Colored hair needs a regular shot of it to stay its healthiest.

I love 3MM!! I recently bought Garnier Fructis' Color Shield condish to cowash with. If you go back to 3MM and a sulfate poo, maybe you should at least try a color protecting one.
