Default How long does it take for CG transition?

I went for a DEVA cut on Saturday and my stylist mentioned that it takes 6 weeks or more for the cones to fully disipate.

Is this true? How do I start the process? Do I just start using cone free and sulfate products? Do I need to use clarifying shampoo to start the process?

*Shampoo - Tresemme Naturals (low sulfate) once every week or two.
*Conditioner - DEVA One (used for co-wash too). Yes To Carrots conditioner.
*Leave in - Garnier Fructis Clean styling cream & gel (DEVA gels are hit or miss depending on the weather. ULTA medium hold gel is also silicone free).
*Other likes - DEVA moisture lock spray, Ducks Clips (spray with gel first), diffuse 30 - 40%.

Hmm that doesn't sound right to me, though I'm no expert. If you used products with cones, you should do a final clarifying sulfate wash. That should get all of the cones out, then it just takes some time for your hair to adjust to being cone free

After your last clarifying sulfate wash and then you begin adhering to the CG rules, you're already well on your way.
