Water-Soluble Cones

Hi ladies

Quick question...

What's the deal with water-soluble cones. I've been a strict no-coner for 2 or 3 years now, but lately I've been experimenting a little bit. I tried the Devacare One C and while I love it, I think I'm giving it up due to the cone and my fear that it will build up...

I'm revisiting Paul Mitchell's The Detangler and it definitely detangles better than any conditioner I've used during my curly hair journey. It contains a water-soluble cone, and I'm wondering if its safe to use or should I keep it moving??

I need a conditioner that I can use for co-washes (and leave a little in) that has amazing slip, mostly natural ingredients and is moisturizing. I use AOHSR and AO White Camellia, but only for DTs. After reading another thread (about bladder cancer), I've given up the TIGI MM too

I need help!!!

If it is water-soluble, then I don't think you have to worry about anything.

Curlynikki, your hair is very cool! Your hair clearly likes the no 'cone lifestyle.

Some people use water-soluble cones without a problem -- they experience no buildup or weirdness. Others (like myself) do find that *something* strange happens to their hair when they use them. You could be one of the lucky ones, and the only way you'll know is to experiment.

I've been using Activate Hydrating Conditioner and liking it quite a lot. Great slip and it detangles very well. It doesn't contain all natural ingredients however. But... Trader Joe's Essential conditioner is primarily comprised of natural ingredients and that stuff is equally good (just smells a bit sweet). It has very, very good slip.

Warning: both of these are less than $5 but they also contain protein, if that's a problem for you. No 'cones of any kind in either product.

Suburbanbushbabe recently mentioned Magick Botanicals as a good, cheap, mostly natural conditioner, too. And it has no protein, I believe.

I'm not seeking out products with water soluble cones but when I find one that works, I don't kick it to the curb either --

Wen Sweet Almond Mint is a very effective one-cycle cleanser and conditioner, has that trisyl.....cone. Never get buildup. That's the only cleanser I use that has a cone. Lately I've been using Magick Botanicals (the nonprotein one) and it's quite effective.

Some of my leave ins have the PEG-cone watersolubles ( Aveda Elixir and Avedia Color Conserve.

Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
TiGi MM should be okay, as long as you rinse out and don't use it as a leave-in. That conditioner provides a lot of slip for me.
That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.

Thanks everyone!! I'm thinking I'll continue to use it to detangle, rinse completely and then apply an Aubrey conditioner for moisture...

Rudee, their is a thread on the General Discussion Board about it...let me find the link...

ETA: Here it is:

I could be wrong, but then again, I think if you don't overdo it and use in moderation, it'll be okay. Otherwise, we'll have to be scared about everything. Personally, I'd rather die early and not be scared, then live a life of fear and live longer. That's just me. And, no, I'm no suicidal. I just think quality of life is more important. The air we breathe, the water we drink, fresh fruits and vegetables (pesticides), artificial sweeteners, our hair products, our makeup, ....really, when is it going to end?

My vote is alarmist....while there may be something behind the concern this group tends to think everything is wildly dangerous. On the other hand, I wouldn't go out of my way to use things that contain it and would prefer that it be way down on the list.
