CJ Daily Fix...what's the scent like?

I was intrigued by this as I do like to CO wash and alternate with low poo or reg shampoo.

I like [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/DevaCurl-No-Poo-p-53.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=devacurl-devacurl-nopoo]Deva No Poo[/buylink], but can't get beyond the scent.

Also, how much do you have to use? It's still a bit spendy to me, esp with shipping.


Hair Type - medium to fine texture, high porosity, lots of it, type 2b/3a

    Everyone will probably give a different opinion on the smell - to me it's almost like candy with coconut and citrus undertones.

    This product is well worth the price if you are a looking for a cleansing co-wash. This is a thread on the go in the Product Reviews you can check with others people's views on it.

    I have long hair and use about 2 quarter sized blobs each wash. How much you use will depend on your length, thickness and how often you wash.

    I have to think about what the scent is--so that tells you it isn't too strong. It has peppermint oil in it, so there's a light minty smell. Very refreshing--and worth every penny!

    It smells wonderful! It is a very light scent, nothing like Deva No-Poo. I loved the NP, but not the scent. The CJ smells sooo good. I think you'll really like it.

    Agree. I actually love No Poo as well but the smell is awful.

    Daily Fix, to me, is sort of minty smelling..similar to a candy cane but not as sweet. It's not a real strong smell though--not like something like Karen's Body Beautiful or Jasmine's products which are very fragranced. It is there but not overpowering.

    I was just gonna type "minty", but decided to head to my shower and check with a resniff. Yes, the CJDF is Minty with Coconuttiness, a mix of those two smells that is very nice and not cloying. Light.

    The [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Curl-Junkie-Curl-Assurance-Smoothing-Conditioner-p-997.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=Curl-Junkie-Curl-Assurance-Smoothing-Conditioner]CJ Smoothing Conditioner[/buylink] smells fruity with butterscotchy undertones. At least, that's how it is to me. I just sniffed that, too. :)

    I use a generous amount of shampoos when they're no-poo to low-poo. I add, scrub, add, scrub, add, scrub, so I can use quite a bit. I don't know how you use your no-poos, so figure you'd use about the same as when you no-poo with others.

    I really like the smell of the Daily Fix, but I can't stand the Daily conditioner. It smells like rotten strawberries to me. LOL

    Thanks for your replies!

    I used the Daily Fix again last night, and I'll add a "candy" scent is mixed in with the mint and coconutty. :) Something undefinably sweet and "candylike".

    I had the most perfect curls ever last night after using my whole CJ line (except the smoothing condish as I deep treated). Amazing, shiny, sproingy, nearly frizz-obliterated.

    After sleeping, ah, frizz and some stretched out curls from pineappling. Still got shine and some sproing and softness, but the miracle is over for now.

    But for a moment, perfection was mine.
