GF Pure Clean

How do we feel about this line?

I love the gel, but im currently using the conditioner as a RO. I don't get any moisture from it, i wonder if they reformulated it bc i remember getting some moisture from it in the past. I love the scent tho, smells like girly apples lol!

Im thinking about also retrying the triple nutrition. I don't care about cones anymore.

    I didn't like the conditioner either. Felt really thick and heavy, but you put it on your hair and nothing happens. I ended up using it up as a co-wash.

    I liked the gel but not the scent. I never had a problem with mosquitoes though, I don't think they liked the limonene (Citronella) scent. LOL

    My husband LOVES the pomade, and I liked it to SOTC before I started using my supersoaker+LOC method.

    I use the conditioner as a LI (mixed with other things) and RO and it works well for both. It moisturizes without weighing my hair down. The smell isn't my favorite but it's not overbearing.

    Ok, it's one of the few -- well, only -- conditioner that's inexpensive, cone-free (my hair feels strange when I condition too often w/ cones), protein free ( I'm protein sensitive) and thick & heavy like I like my condishes.

    I use it as a RO, and I always rave about it because of its convenience, but it's not all that moisturizing for me anymore. :( I've been buying it for months and by now I'm sick of the smell. The gel did nada for my WnG, also. Since I don't condition as much as I used to, I'm going to go back to trying cones. Idk, I used to love this stuff but since I've changed my regimen maybe it's time to change this.

    I've tried the gel too, it was okay, I didn't find it any worse than the Eco styler when it comes to hold.
    I have a few of their other products and I think the line is very hit and miss. I have a few leave in products and a frizz control humidity cream my sister got me and they are okay...but they are sitting in my beauty closet not being used.
    I really like the smell of most of their products and I do think they have improved substantially over the years, I remember trying their products years ago and thinking they were the worst most drying products I had ever used, now some of their stuff isn't too bad.
    I think I don't use the products that I have because I have so many better products that work for my hair.
    I use to use the triple nutrition spray all the time I have like 4 bottles being unsed right now...(don't judge me they went on sale and I went a bit crazy lol) I also found that the triple nutrition spray in the States is different than the one we have here in Canada, ours is less oil and water looking and more thick and milky which I prefer.
    I doubt I will buy anything more from this line there, are better things out there.

    The conditioner does absolutely nothing for moisturizing my hair. But then the only thing I see in store is "normal hair". Is there a dry hair formula?

    I like the curl cream.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:

    Hateeee this conditioner. Got no moisture from it what so ever. I even feel like it robbed my hair of moisture, my hair was so dry and tangled even 1 day after. I was so excited to rinse it out. I'm not sure if thats due to fragrence being so high on the ingredients list or not.

    They need to reformulate it. Im pretty sure even "normal hair" would benefit from SOME type of moisture.

    What IS normal hair anyway??
