Default is it really OK to use water soluable cones?

Almost ALL of my products contain one of the 2 water soluable cones. I have not been able to find any deep treatements, leave-ins, or good conditioners that are completely cone free ( I don't live in the US, I know there are plenty there).

So even though they are water soluable, they are in my hair all the time. I rinse out yesterdays leave-in when I wash but by the time I get out of the shower there is some fresh amodimethicone coating each hair.

Does the CG book really allow the water soluable cones? Has anyone experimentd with this? Is a water soluable cone as good as no cones?

I use the a -cone everyday. I have used Dove Intense Moisture Conditioner since it was first brought out and my hair does great with it. I have done the CG routine for over a year now so I don't use shampoo. IMHO ......as long as it is water soluable, and you at least rinse it well, there should be no buildup.

so which cones are water soluble and which ones aren't?

hehehe... scratch that. i just came across an interesting pdf on a webpage. it lists certain cones, what they're used for and if they're water soluble. it's a company list, so it might not have them all, or more specific cones, but it's interesting, none-the-less.
here's the link!!
