    I use it. First time I used it, I thought it got my hair a little too clean. Have used it a few times since and while I'm not overly impressed, it's okay. I tend to use it when I've used other product lines besides KC and planning to use KCNT and [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] that day.

    My hair felt more naked than a hairless cat. It just came a little too clean for me. I use all natural products anyway so I didn't really have much if any build up. I no longer use it, myself. Don't nobody need to come that clean!

    nubian, that's funny. What I find weird is that all of the "natural" shampoos that I have tried seemed to be far more stripping than any sulfate I ever used and the only way that I've been able to alleviate that is prepooing, which I forgot to meniton would be the difference between the first time I used it and now.

    I have found the same thing. The only shampoo that doesn't feel too stripping for me is Giovanni's 50/50 shampoo. But I still pre-poo before I use it. But since I use all natural products, I really don't mess with shampoo anymore. I shampoo now like once every 6-8 weeks...

    I'm currently using it. I agree with the others, it isn't all that. My hair doesn't feel any better than when I use sulfates. I will finish this bottle, but don't think I will repurchase. Truthfully, all the sulfate free shampoos I have tried have been overrated. I hope to find 1 that I really like soon. Perhaps, I should start pre-pooing.

    I felt like my hair was stripped after using it. I only used it one time (bought it from the Whole Foods store) and returned it.

    One thing I noticed that after using it and applying the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Knot-Today-p-207.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-knot-today-leaveindetangler]Knot today[/buylink] my hair was soft again. I wouldn't recommend it for type 4 hair.

    I've found that unless you need to correct a protein or cone disaster the best "poo" to use is Dr. Bronner's Castille soap or soap bars like black soap. They clean without making it squeaky clean, and there aren't any sulfates.

    Me too! I bought it because I use other KC products and when I intend to use KT and CC, I will wash first with the Come Clean or if I have used a lot of gels and want to clarify my hair I will also use it. Other wise, it's co-wash as usual.

    Me too, honestly. Shampoo also makes my hair hella tangled. I can see that as my hair gets longer, shampoo is going to be a real problem so I'm trying to phase it out completely. I still feel the need to use it cause I can't get past the "it's not clean" thinking. I mean, my hair feels clean, but I have lived for 30 years thinking that your hair gets clean with shampoo....

    i havent used a traditional shampoo in years. just baking soda and water and my hair loves it.:cheers:

    Questions:

    How often do you do this baking soda and water?

    Do you measure it? If so, how much baking soda and how much water do you use?

    How do you apply it? Is it like shampoo where you put the mixture in your hand then on your head?

    Do you target your whole head (hair included) or just your scalp?

    Do you ever do an ACV rinse? Is it like the same thing? Like you can do one or the other?

    I would like to do away with shampoos as well...

    How often do you do this baking soda and water?

    I do the baking soda cleanser once a week and thats only because my scalp gets a lot of build up because the amla powder and sulfur scalp oil mixture. If you don't have much build up you can do this rinse once every two weeks or even once a month.

    Do you measure it? If so, how much baking soda and how much water do you use?

    I use between 1/2 -1 cup of baking soda mixed with 3 cups of warm water. You have to constantly shake/stir your mixture so the baking soda doesn't settle on the bottom. It should be a cloudy white color and should feel a bit grimy.

    How do you apply it? Is it like shampoo where you put the mixture in your hand then on your head?

    the mixture is watery/grimy so I have it mixed in the jar, shake around to keep it mixed, and then pour it over my hair and scalp. On wash day my hair is in four sections so not that much of my scalp is showing but the mixture still reaches all parts of my scalp. Then i massage my scalp with my fingers (30secs-1min) and then rinse.

    Do you target your whole head (hair included) or just your scalp?

    im only targeting my scalp but some of it runs through my hair which is perfectly fine. baking soda provides good slip.

    Do you ever do an ACV rinse? Is it like the same thing? Like you can do one or the other?

    i use to do ACV rinse but I stopped because they were not doing anything significant for my hair. ACV is not a scalp cleanser it is just used to restore the natural ph of the hair. Its not a dirt buster/scalp cleanser but it can be used once a month to give your hair sheen, control ph, and help with tangles. ACV has never made my hair shiny or help with tangles.

    Okay, I'll be the first (and only?) person to say that I like the K-C Come Clean. My hair never feels stripped and it feels nice and clean. Maybe it's that "too clean" thing y'all talked about, but I like that. Every sulfate shampoo has made my hair into a knotted mess and I hate hate hate using them. As of right now the only shampoo I use is the Come Clean. I dunno, I just know that I like it.

    With that said I am looking at the Chagrin Valley shampoo bars and Dr. Bronner's to try. And I plan on using some regular black soap that I have in my bathroom this weekend. I like the Come Clean and I def. don't have to use a lot, but I also don't know if I want to spend $12 on a shampoo. Why I have no qualms over spending $15 or more on a conditioner but hate forking over the same amount for a "poo" I have no idea. But if I can get the same clean non-stripped feeling from something that costs $10 or less then yay.

    hey! i just ordered and received some of that and its sitting in my room waiting for me to wash my hair. i have the peppermint spearmint and it smells delicious.

    i have this book about herbal hair care and they have different apple cider vinegar rinses so i might try to follow up with that when i get all the ingredients.

    First sulfate-free shampoo I bought when I BCed (which was 2 months ago). It smells wonderful and I've washed with it about 4 times...and my hair felt squeaky clean-literally. When I touched my hair, just ran my fingers through it to finger comb, you could hear it squeaking. All the same, it doesn't strip considerably....it just leaves my hair clean. Worth the
