I recently tried this brand's Green Earth conditioner and I love love love it. It's works great as a detangler and as a deep treatment. Although I haven't tried it as a leave in, I'm sure it would be perfect if it were watered down a bit. This is my new HG!!! Yippee :blob7:, I have an HG product. Oh and did I mention that the smell is awesome. I bought it at SDM but check out their website for other retailers: /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.live-clean.com%2F" class="Popup.

    I hear you but I got mine on clearance for $2/bottle. After using it the first time, I went back and cleared them out, lol. Love it.

    I also like Live Clean. Something in Suave makes my sensitive scalp itch like crazy. Live Clean is also crude-oil product free, which I require.
    2B low porosity low elasticity fine texture
    I'm not CG - tried it and failed for two years. My scalp hates it.

    Tried the gel and my hair rebelled. Now it’s in the bottom of my bathroom cabinet, so sad.

    I agree Live Clean products are really nice. There is also a new brand called Balea in Shoppers Drug Mart ... it has silicons in it but i just love their conditioner I got the Vanilla and Coconut and it smells amazing.

    Live Clean is so awesome!
    I've tried the argan oil smooth and shine cream and the fresh water intensive moisturizing leave in. The argan oil cream was abit light for me, but great under or on top of something creamier. It made my hair really soft. The fresh water leave-in was pretty good too, though I did have to put quite a bit of gel over it to have enough frizz control lol. I think I'll try it out again in the fall. I'd repurchase both products though.

  • nana_banananana_banana Posts: 735Registered Users
    I love the argan oil creme. It's too light on it's own but I mix it with my leave-in and it's all good. I want to try the other argan stuff.

    I tried their leave-in once upon a time (blue line). I didn't like it.

    I'm always looking for vegan hair care products that I can easily find (and that are affordable). Shoppers always has Live Clean on sale. I'm glad they exist!

    I just got the Green Earth Conditioner on your recommendation and so far I like it.

    I am very curious about their new Argan line but I couldn't find it in my local drugstore.

    Live Green is the best line in the drugstore.

    I have the argan oil cream myself, but I don't think it is all that, honestly. I think it maybe my hair shines more, but smooth? No way. Still as frizzy as ever. I did pick up the travel sizes of the Fresh Water (blue) shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo lathered well, but I did have that squeaky feeling. That said, the conditioner was nice and moisturizing and my hair does feel soft (I only added the argan oil cream, and have otherwise gone naked to try this). I admittedly used more shampoo than I would normally, and all over rather than just at the scalp, so it might not be as bad with lighter application. I still want to try the Purple Jewel line. The Fresh Water travel sizes are more like a sample to me.

    I've been using the Purple Jewel conditioner and love it! It moisturizes my hair really well, makes it feel soft and smells great. Shopper's has had it on sale for the past little while, so I might stock up. I use their leave-in conditioner as well, but might not buy it again only because I think that the Purple Jewel conditioner will suffice. I just got their argan oil treatment, and it made my dry hair super shiny, but I will hold judgment until I've used it for a little longer. It does get quite sticky as it dries, and I don't think I would want to use it while my hair was wet.

    All told, I like that this is a Canadian brand, is plant based, doesn't contain sulfates and silicones and is eco-friendly. I've been happy with the products I've used so far and it's really well priced, especially if you can snag some products on sale!
    - Colour treated
    - 3a curls/fine texture/normal porosity


    I'm just getting to really know my hair, and am in the beginning stages of CG. Cheers to that!

    Dax, have you used anything else from the Purple Jewel line like the wave enhancing mousse or spray?

    I LOVE the Live Clean Moisturizing conditioner as a co-wash. It's my favorite of all I've tried, but is not nearly enough moisture as a rinse-out for my very dry, coarse, porous hair.

    I haven't seen any mention of the Exotic Nector Argan Oil oil treatment on the boards. I've tried it a few times, and I think I like it. Anyone else tried this? What do you think about it?

    I just saw the Argan line at walmart superstore (they seemed to have the entire live clean line) this past weekend and was contemplating it...after reading these posts I may have to go back and give them a try.

    I am shocked at the amount of curl I got from this product. Using my Connair hot rollers, I got massive, glam curls yesterday and today, after a pineapple pony tail overnight, they are even BETTER! Thats why I came to the site to look up Live Clean and saw this post.
    I have used Suave in the past but no way did it give this much bounce. I even grabbed a mirror to check out the back and yup, curls all around.

    for some reason the Purple Jewel range is almost impossible to find around me...I saw a few dirty bottles of the conditioner once but I never saw it anywhere else. None of the walmarts or rexall or SDM or anywhere else seems to carry this part of the Live Clean line, I wonder why?

    update - well I managed to get my hands on both the Purple Jewel shampoo and conditioner. Wow! I let both sit for about 5 minutes on my hair in the shower and my hair really really seems to like it. I was amazed at the curl enhancement I got. In this stinking humid weather, I got some compliments on my curls even though the humidex here is 41 degrees celcius! I was planning on getting a hair cut soon because my hair was looking a bit scraggly and I had trouble getting reasonably consistent curls but I think I'll use Purple Jewel for a while to see if the results hold up.

    I was looking to replace my Giovanni 50:50 and I'm pretty sure I've found it!

    I think the 50:50 may be relegated to a few times a month until it is used up. So far, I recommend Live Clean Purple Jewel shampoo and conditioner.

    Absolutely. Used it for about 2 years. Conditioner is great but watch if you have a sensitive scalp, found it made mine itch a bit so I just applied from about 1/2 way down my hair to ends.

    I just bought Live Clean Professional Damage Therapy shampoo at SDM this week because it was on sale and it seemed CG friendly. I'm so glad I found this thread because it gives me some confidence in my ability to pick out CG friendly products when they aren't the most popular brands! Anyways, I really like the shampoo so far. I've used it followed by Tresemme Naturals as a RO.
