Jessicurl Cleansing Cream question.

I'm washing my hair with Jessicurl Cleansing Cream. Do I need to wash with a sulphate free 'proper' shampoo ever 10-14 days or is there no need as the Jessicurl has sufficient cleansing properties?

    It has cocamidopropyl betaine in it, so will remove cones. However, you may need an occasional shampoo with an olefin sulfonate if you end up with buildup from the guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride and the behentrimonium chloride the cleansing cream contains.

    Thank you so much for your reply and very helpful advice.

    So I need to track down a shampoo with an olefin sulfonate but WITHOUT sulphates. Probably easier said than done here in the UK but I'll start looking.

    Many thanks x

    The advice wasn't good. Neither of Jessicurl's cleansers remove silicone! Daily Fix also does not remove silicone.  The  cleansing agents in all of these are gentle sulfate free cleansers. (I just looked cleansing agents  individually last week when searching for a new shampoo). 

    As long as you are not using products with silicone you don't technically need a sulfate shampoo, so any of Jessicurl or Curl Junkie cleanser is fine on it's own.   But, you might find your hair is happier if you add a sulfate shampoo to your routine.  You just have to experiment to find out.
