Yes, I am finally considering. HOwever, please read carefully: I am not interested in washing my hair with a conditioner; I want a product especially made for this purpose, like Wen, but not Wen; and NOT Deva No Poo - I hate the No Poo. I have LP hair, and would like a product that might eliminate the need for a conditioner. Any thoughts, please??

    L'Oreal Paris' Evercurl cleansing conditioner. If you're ok with trying kiddie products then Just For Me Hair Milk makes a cleansing conditioner for $5 or less (not sure of the ingredients). Also keep in mind that not all cones are bad. In fact, Dimethicone is what gives conditioners the slip you need to detangle.

    Though I've never tried it, I think CJ Daily Fix would fit the bill. It is specifically a cleansing conditioner. It even has coco betaine (anionic surfactant) in the first 5 ingredients.
    2bc/ f / ii. low porosity roots + normal-high porosity shaft where bleached. normal elasticity.

    Myrna, I have LP hair like you & could never do the co-wash/cleansing conditioner thing. You name it, I tried it: Suave, V05, CJ Daily Fix, Jessicurl Cleansing Cream, As I Am (both the Coconut Co-Wash and the Cleansing Pudding), Darcy's Botanicals Cleansing Conditioner, and others I've since forgotten.

    They all left my hair feeling greasy, flat and frizzy, so I was skeptical when I read glowing reviews from MirCurls and others for Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea Cleansing CoWash. But when Sally had a BOGO a couple of weeks ago, I figured it was a low-risk proposition at less than $8 for 16 ounces. One of the best hair product purchases I've ever made! It leaves my hair feeling clean, which is very important to me, yet I don't need a conditioner afterward and detangling is reasonably easy. I use it for 2 days, then low-poo on the third to avoid any buildup.

    I would still recommend trying CJ Daily Fix, even though it didn't work for me, but if you have a Sally's nearby, you should think about trying the Eden.

    ETA: forgot to mention that the scent is divine!

    CJ Daily Fix is so expensive though. Is it worth the money??
  • MyrnaMyrna Posts: 2,332Registered Users Curl Neophyte
    aharri, I got CJ Daily Fix in a trade with a member here. I like it a LOT. I also have the L'Oreal conditioning cleanser for curls, which I have not tried yet. Do I prefer to get something in the drug store t hat works? Indeed. So I will eventually compare the 2. Yossarian, thank you for the rec! I will look into that too.
