Anyone have any thoughts on the effectiveness of cleansing conditioners (like CJ Daily Fix) compared to gentle cleansing shampoos (like [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Hair-Cleansing-Cream-p-103.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-hair-cleansing-cream]Jessicurl's Hair Cleansing Cream[/buylink] or SpiralSolutions Gentle Cleansing Cream)?

    I don't really have a preference..I sort of think of them more by ingredient and action on my hair.

    I think it's really about how they want to market the product. To me as long as it cleans I'm good.

    I find the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Hair-Cleansing-Cream-p-103.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-hair-cleansing-cream]Jessicurl HCC[/buylink] and the Bellacurls cleansing creme to be sort of similar--very good cleansing but probably not going to get out oils for me (I mean pre poo oils that I sometimes like to use on my scalp). CJ Daily Fix is more cleansing to get them out IMHO.

    The Spiral Solutions one seemed more like a cross with a shampoo--it's one of my favorites and I can't wait until it comes out..I loved it.

    I base what I use on what my hair is doing--since again I don't think there are any sort of rules for how you label the stuff--seems like a shampoo or some sort (low poo or not) tends to foam a little bit at least and the cleansing creme's/conditioners don't. But I've had low poo's not clean as well as the CJ Daily Fix.

    I will say that I really like the ones that are sort of conditioner like as I often then don't need a rinse out (the case with Bellacurls and with the CJ Daily Fix and [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]).

    Not sure that's helped.

    I was hoping you'd weigh in, AJJ! It's so interesting that the CJ DF actually cleans better than a cleanser. I'm glad to hear your experience.

    I prefer cleansing conditioners, simply because they leave my hair soft, and I usually don't need a rinse out afterward. I like a simple routine, and they just work out better for me.:)

    I low-poo or use a sulfate poo every 2-3 weeks, just to make sure my hair is free of buildup.
