If you've used sulfates to remove the cones, you should be good to go. Shampoo doesn't have to be called "clarifying." Here's an article that talks about milder surfactants
Curly Hair Q&A: Are "Gentle" Surfactancts Also Damaging?
You could use something like CJ Daily Fix, which contains "coco b." It's generally enough to remove most cones.
When I first went CG/modified CG, I'd use a sulfate shampoo once a year--just in case. It didn't set me back at all.
There are a few things you need to get great hair. The foundation is a good haircut with the correct layering. After that, you need to use the right ingredients/products and techniques. It's all about getting the protein/moisture balance correct.
