You may also need to clarify your hair with a sulfate shampoo if your conditioners have these ingredients: dimethicone, amodimethicone, trideceth, cetromium chloride, clycotropolol (I know I spelled that wrong). These ingredients prevent build up on the hair, but need a sulfate shampoo to get it out of your hair. They also do not allow moisture to get in your hair. While amodimethicone is not water soluble, paired with trideceth & cetromium chloride it becomes water soluble. It coats the hair with a film that is not water soluble & can only be removed with a sulfate shampoo. So check your ingredients. You may not be as cone free or sulfate free as you think. Coco bentaine is a mild sulfate. Coco amino... Is also a mild sulfate. Some conditioners have these in them.
