Does the Cleansing Conditioner need Cocamidopropyl betaine to cleanse?

DevaCurl no-poo and some of the Shea Moisture cleansing conditioners contain the cleansing agent Cocamidopropyl betaine (CAPB). If the cleansing conditioner doesn't have this ingredient, is not as effective to replace shampoo?

    I would think that if something is specifically marketed as a cleansing conditioner, it would have something in it that cleanses relatively well, whether containing cocomidopropyl betaine or not.

    If you are asking about using a regular rinse-out conditioner as a cleansing agent, I don't know the answer.
