Clarifying wash

What has anyone used to do the last clarifying wash before going CG? I've been CG for almost 2 months now, but I'm not sure I used a sulfate shampoo that is silicone free to clarify one last time. I'd like to do it again just to be sure. I also just had my hair cut and colored and want to be sure I've gotten any silicones out that my stylist may have used. I'm so confused with all the ingredients to watch out for that when I get to the store, I have no idea what to buy!

2?/3a ??? ; fine; high density; normal porosity and elasticity
color treated

cleanse:Organix Vanilla Silk, Use Me Cleansing Cream
rinse out/li:Ion Effective Care, Tresseme Naturals Radiant Volume (both with NPF added)
stylers:Curl Keeper, UFD Curly Magic, & Alba Botanicals Strong Hold Gel
PT:CJ Repair Me

    I use Suave Clarifying Shampoo. I keep it on hand in case I slip up and use something and later find out it had a cone or something. I even had to clarify once just from too much build up even though I was following CG very well, sometimes buildup will just build up.

    It's in a clear bottle with a blue tint to it.

    Good Luck
