    I use sulfates and 'cones. They cause no problems for me.
    Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.

    I use products with small amounts of cones, but avoid anything that has cones in the middle or top of the ingredient list. No poo at all, so no sulfates.

    I only use the cones that come out of the hair more easily. I use a sulfate shampoo (Nioxin) once a week, but all other days use sulfate-free gentle 'poos.

    I use sulfates occasionally with no problems; too often
    and it starts irritating my scalp.

    I avoid cones since they weigh down my hair.

    I use any of the sulfates (SLES, ALS, ALES) except for SLS with no problem. Some of my products have a 'cone or two in them lower down in the ingredient list. I can't use anything heavy in 'cones, or else I get a greasy, weighed down mess!

    I found out the hard way that I am physically allergic to cones. They cause my skin to break out like magic, and it makes my scalp itchy as hell. It was pretty uncomfortable before I made the connection between the product and the allergy.
    Very fine, alot of it. Not sure ofType. Wavy. Loving my hair! HG- Boots Curling cream

    I use sulfates, but I try to stick to the gentlest ones. I don't use cones because they don't do anything for my hair.

    I don't shampoo daily - just whenever a feel like it - probably a couple times a week. I put conditioner on the ends before I do, though.

    i'm not using any sulfate products, and i avoid them.
    i use products with water soluble cones, or with cones low on the ingredients list. i try to avoid cones as a rule, however.

    small amounts of cones are ok. Since I don't shampoo I don't use sulfates. Too bad protiens wasn't in the vote because proteins are the worst for my hair.
