Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Conditioner

I picked this up today in hopes I could use it for my co-washes. I usually use No Poo but I'm out and don't live close enough to Ulta to pick it up. I saw reviews on here where curlies used it as conditioner and didn't like it. Has anyone used it for their co-wash? Did it work any better?

    I'm going to answer my own question and say I love it for co-washing. I think this is going to replace No Poo for me.

    Oooh- I'm intrigued...

    My biggest issue with finding a co-wash is that I need something really light- anything too heavy (even Suave naturals), and my roots feel awful and gunky.

    Is this working as a co-wash because it's a nice, light conditioner? If so, I might have to check it out :toothy10:

    I picked this up because I was intrigued by the commercials intending to use it as a rinse out, but it doesn't have a lot of moisture at all, so I used it up by co-washing instead. It was fine--I am not too picky about conditioner washes, but I would prefer suave. :) And I really didn't like the smell--it smells like artificial green apple. Yeah, I would guess it's pretty light.

    I originally bought it to try as my RO, but it has nearly 0 slip for me. I then discovered it was great as co-wash! I don't use it much, bc my hair likes protein so much that I use suave coconut now. But it cleanses well!!

    Pure clean is awesome. Not the best at detangling, but I just use a lot and it works fine. So cheap! I don't care about going through a large bottle every 6 weeks or so.

    I also really love all the styling products in the Pure Clean line

    i love pure clean! i consider it my go-to for co-washes, but i only use it every 3rd time. i rotate between pure clean, tresemme naturals and wen fig.

    My hair seems to have more curl since I've been using it as my co-wash (which I'm really happy about). My husband even commented on my hair when I got home from work last night! He said, "Your hair looks really good!"

    Right now...GF Pure Clean Conditioner is a keeper!

    I have been wanting to try the Pure Clean condish. Lately I need something lighter (my normal moisture-loving hair has turned into a protein-loving, anti-moisture monster! ;)), so I was curious about this stuff. I heard so many people say that there was no slip to this stuff (which I really need for my tangles), so I kept avoiding it. I also spotted the corn starch very high on the ingredients list and was kind of weirded out -- I thought that much cornstarch would make your hair dull and "gummy." When I put cornstarch in my FSG, it always gives it more hold, so I wasn't sure what it would be like in a conditioner. I wonder if that has anything to do with it having less slip? I have to say that I totally love the smoothing cream and the gel, though. They are really awesome. :)
    Type 2c/3a with lots of hair and a super sensitive scalp! Med/slightly coarse texture, low porosity and elasticity.

    There isn't any slip at all. It actually feels more like a cleanser to me. But my hair feels moisturized after applying my leave-in (KCKT).

    I use this for my daughter for co-only wng or as a leave in under evoo if I'm doing ponytails or braids. Never tried it as a co-wash for her but I'll try that next wash day. It wasn't moisturizing enough as a rinse out.

    I had to get this because the triple nourish now has a cone in it (Glad I read the labels EVERYTIME I buy) and I was in a panic because I didn't know what else I could get. So far so good, but I'm still gonna look for something different as my RO/LI. Might try it as my co-wash though.
