Default Redken Real Control Conditioner

I'm new to CG. Prior to CG I was using Redken's Real Control shampoo & conditioner. I know the shampoo has 'cones in it, but I'm not seeing any on the conditioner. Here is the ingredient list:

Aqua/water, cetearyl alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Amodimethicone, cetyl esters, Parfum/fragrance, Methlparaven, Lauryl PEG/PPG-18/18 Methicone, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter/Shea Butter, Trideceth-6, Benzyl Salicylate, Chlorhexidine Dihyro-Chloride, Butylphenyl Methlpropional, Poloxamer 407, Dodecene, Linalool, PPG-5-Ceteth-20, Cetrimonium Chloride, Wheat Amino Acids, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Limonene, 2-Cleamindo-1,3-Octadecanediol,Citronellol, Oleth-10, Disodium Cocoamphodipropionate, Lecithin

Am I missing something? Is this okay to use? TIA!

The bolded are cones. The Lauryl methicone is Peg modified though, so it should be water soluble. Amodimethicone, however, is not and would need something more substantial than a cowash to get it out.

No problem!

Some people do love the Deva line, which has the A-cone in it. You could maybe try using it, and adding some lemon juice to your conditioner to prevent buildup. If your hair starts feeling coated though, it's probably the a-cone. In that case, you'd need to either low poo to re-clarify to get rid of it
