But seriously, what is the issue with cones? Nothing really. The issue is that when you choose not to shampoo, then they will build up on your hair. It has nothing to do w/ the ingredients themselves, but rather, the fact that you've chosen to follow a routine that doesn't allow silicones in it.

Somebody who combines moisturizing ingredients along w/ some cones, and shampoos only occasionally, may be moisturized enough for their hair type. The cones are obviously not keeping moisture out completely, or else everyone would have dried out hair.
