Smile Ingredient check (help the newbie)

I recently bought some Original Sprout products. This was before reading about CG method. I bought it because the products are gluten free and nut free.

The gel looks fine as I don't see any cones. Correct?

Now the curl calmer does contain a cone.

If I low-poo will this take care of cone build up? If yes does it depend on a particular ingredient in the low-poo that I should look for?

From what I've read this cone is not water soluble. Does it need a sulfate to clean it off hair?

Thanks. I'll check my poos. (Boy, that just sounds wrong)

Do either of those have humectants? I'm confused as to what actual ingredients are and aren't.

Glycerin is a potent humectant. The other main three are probably honey, propylene glycol and aloe vera.
