Almost ALL of my products contain one of the 2 water soluable cones. I have not been able to find any deep treatements, leave-ins, or good conditioners that are completely cone free ( I don't live in the US, I know there are plenty there).

So even though they are water soluable, they are in my hair all the time. I rinse out yesterdays leave-in when I wash but by the time I get out of the shower there is some fresh amodimethicone coating each hair.

Does the CG book really allow the water soluable cones? Has anyone experimentd with this? Is a water soluable cone as good as no cones?
