    If you have buildup I suggest clarifying.

    Moisturizing cleansers that I cant be without:
    Curl Junkie Daily Fix Cleansing Condish
    DevaCurl No Poo
    Wen Cleansing Condish
    Blended Beauty Soy Cream Shampoo
    I rotate the above and use one every night. Just cowashing is gross to me.

    And for more of a shampoo I love Elasta QP Creme Shampoo.

    All AWESOME cleansers that dont strip at ALL and leave hair moisturized.

    +1 for the Elasta QP Creme Conditioning Shampoo...I love how it moisturizes and it actually detangles when I use it. I think anyone who used to use the original creme of nature should try this:)

    Ditto on the no shampoo factor...

    I either use my cleanse mix (castille soap, black soap, tea tree oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil), or my bentonite mix (bentonite clay, acv, avj, oil mix).

    I use deva no poo as well but to get rid of build up I'd say clarify with a ACV rinse. Works wonders for me.

    ACV, bentonite Clay, or SM Purification Masque.


    If love is truly patient and kind, but our actions or words aren't, then maybe It's self reflection time. -Sent from my iPod touch using CurlTalk-

    bentonite clay is my lover

    tried shea moisture purification masque last night and it did a great job of cleansing my hair as well as deep conditioning it at the same time.

    The african black soap was very drying & stripping to my scalp so I stopped using it. I now use shampoo & the best one I've tried is Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat. I still use my beloved aztec clay w/acv.
