Yes, I am tired of it. I feel - well, duped. I know that this phase will pass, but I no longer buy into the mantra about cones being bad. For the past many days I have been using a conditioner with dimethicone; and today, I used CK and 3 in 1 mousse, at my stylists' (got my roots done). My hair looks great. She used my products, and I only got the roots done. I cannot speak for anyone else but I am concluding that there is no universal evil in the use of cones.
