Ingredient Help

I completely cut out 'cones, 'xanes, and sulfates from my regimen.
I try to minimize the amount of fatty alcohols (and completely cut out non fatty-alcohols) and 'quats I use.
Is it okay, or even good, that I cut out these ingredients?

I am not sure if they are in my current haircare products (I will have to look), but should I also be cutting out surfactants?
Also, what is the word on polymers? Are they okay to use if you are CG no-'poo?

2c/3a, fine to medium texture, low to medium porosity, normal elasticity, medium density.

Cleanse: Deva Lo-Poo or Kinky Curly Come Clean
Condition: Kinky Curly Knot Today or Suave Naturals Coconut
Stylers: KCCC, BRHG, Moroccan Dry-No-More oil, Mister Right

NO: bad 'quats, 'cones, 'xanes, drying alcohols, sulfates, or petrochemicals.

    Why did you cut out fatty alcohols? They are moisturizing.

    I didn't cut them out. I cut out non-fatty alcohols.
