Looking for shampoo with SLS but without -cones!

Hi there! I have been using Kinky Curly's shampoo (sulfate free) for ages and I still love it, but from time to time I would like to fully clean my head with a sulfate shampoo.

So I am looking for a sulfate shampoo to clean my hair completely, but I do not want to have any cones in it.

Which shampoo could you guys advice me?
Does Mixed Chicks contain cones? I am not into ingredients much so I am checking here.

If I could can an answer within 12 hours this would allow me to use the 25% discount coupon just on time!

Thanks in advance!

    Not sure about mixed chicks products... However the majority of clarifying shampoos do not have silicones in them or cleansing conditioners. What you want to avoid are any cones (dimithicone, cyclomethicone amodimethicone) and ingredients that condition like Guarhydroxypropyltrimonium chloride and polyquaternium 7 and 10. These are tips I picked up from so you might be able to find more information on that website.

    According to CurlMart, Mixed Chicks shampoo is cone free, but it doesn't contain SLS, like your subject line says you want in a shampoo:

    I use the Suave Naturals Clarifying Shampoo when I feel I need it. It's only a dollar or so.

    Thanks for your reply!

    Unfortunately those shampoo's are not available in Europe.

    Anyway, i got this shampoo in the shower:


    As far as you can see, does this contain -cones?

    And one more question: I am able to wash out any cones or build up with ALS (Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate) too right?
