I had my hair high lighted today (and slightly trimmed and the back touched up from when I had cut it a few weeks ago). My stylist used cones in the products she used. I'm not sure about the shampoo or conditioner. She did use Biolage Conditioning Balm for my DT..it was heavenly.

My question is, should I loo poo before I do my PT tomorrow? or sulfate poo? Will BaSo remove silicones with an AVC rinse?

LCLF says a baking soda cleanse is preferred over a sulfate shampoo to remove silicone buildup, but I've never found anything definitive that says baking soda clarification will remove cones. I think I'd choose the safe /proven route and use a low poo with Cocamidopropyl Betaine, since that ingredient is known to remove silicones.

I recommend low-pooing as well! You just need one that contains coca. betaine. It'll be more gentle than a sulfate poo but you'll know you got everything out Like Corrina said, I've never actually heard that baking soda removes 'cones. The common thought around this forum is that it doesn't.

Well, depending on which low-poo you use, it can actually be more drying than a sulfate. Some report a more stripped feeling when using a low-poo as compared to a sulfate wash, it just depends on what product you're using and how your hair reacts. Sulfates aren't the devil, they just need to be dealt with carefully.

I bought GF Pure Clean 2n1 a while back. I think I'm going to try it out.

My stylist told me my hair looked very healthy (especially considering all the color and stripping I had done to it since August 2011-jan 2011). I told her what I has been doing and she was very interested in CG, products, ect... She even asked me about the curly kinks line I had brought with me do I sent her a bunch of info on everything. :]

Isn't it good to wait at least 2-3 days before using any cleanser after you get your hair colored?

Also, I'd like to add that I did not like the GF 2n1. It certainly got rid of cones I'm sure, and all the natural oils and moisture in my hair as well.
