Hair Rules Daily Cleansing Cream

It’s a myth that you need to work yourself into a lather every time you step inside the shower—where your hair is concerned, that is. This moisturizing no suds cleansing shampoo from NYC-based Hair Rules is the real deal, leaving strands squeaky clean without the (unwanted) help of harsh detergents.

I did not feel like my hair was the same level of clean with this product as opposed to my regular shampoo.

another no-sudz shampoo, but not as good as the ones we already know
Sampled

this is another "cleansing conditioner" type shampoo, that basically has no sulfates and is really great for thick, coarse or curly (or both!), dry hair. If you have fine, thin, wavy hair like me, this would be good to use EVERY ONCE IN A BLUE MOON when you may have over-OVER-shampooed or just gone swimming in pure chlorine for a whole summer, but if you wash your hair just a few times a week, this will not give you what you need as far as scalp cleansing. I try these "cleansing conditioner" shampoos and want to love them SO BADLY, but the truth is (and I'm speaking as a licensed Hairdresser) some of use girls NEED our sulfates, we need a little lather to rough our hair up and get our scalps de-gunked. I used this product and really went to town scrubbing my scalp with my fingertips to get that "cleansing" action (wherever it is hidden in the thick creme) to work, and yes, my hair was silky and smooth, but it also felt greasy and like I was about 4 days past that "really need to shampoo" day. I felt like I'd need a dry shampoo on the same day I used this, just to help my scalp feel less greasy and take some of the heavy shine out of my poor limp locks. Are you from Micronesia? You will love this stuff, just use it after you use a normal shampoo on your roots...use it, uh, er, as though you would a CONDITIONER. Oops. Did I just say that? It smells great, it came in a nice big sample bottle, it would make a wonderful rescue treatment for the day you shampooed too many times already but somebody spilled champagne on your head. But if you need to get real SEBUM, or scalp oil, off your head, this is NOT gonna cut the mustard. I'll still use it as a nice condy, though! Thick and rich!

Love the smell!
Sampled

I really love the fragrance of this sample. I feel it cleanses well, and the lack of lather didn't bother me as I have used similar natural products. It left my hair soft, but since my hair is rather long, I still needed a creme rinse.

Nice scent, not the best formula for fine hair
Sampled

I have curly hair that is frizzy but very fine. This shampoo smells great and is very moisturizing but in the end my hair felt weighed down after I used this.

Perfect for my baby fine hair

This leaves my hair super soft and clean feeling, even at the end of second day hair. Can't wait for this to be back in stock!

I have to use more product...
Sampled

I have a very dry scalp and like to use moisturizing shampoos and conditioners. I also have very long, thick hair & this sample gave me only 2 uses, so I don't know if the effects work better over time. I prefer regular shampoo with suds. This one has the consistency of conditioner. I always use more conditioner than shampoo because it doesn't foam up. It's easier for me to spread a smaller amount of shampoo through my hair if it bubbles. So I would need to use more shampoo if I used this product. For $21 I don't want to have to use more shampoo than usual. Lots of people liked the smell but it smelled like chemicals to me. The scent was gone after rinsing though. It was moisturizing on my scalp but not spectacular. Better than most drug store shampoos. But I've been using CLEAR scalp & hair therapy for months and find that it works better than this and is far less expensive. I'll stick with CLEAR.

Great shampoo, but...
Sampled

This stuff smells great and washes my hair really well without drying it out. However, what I really need for my hair is great moisture that I leave in my hair - enter leave-in conditioners, oil treatments, etc. I'd prefer to invest in those products, not a shampoo or "cleansing cream"

Cleansing Hair Cream

I really like this product. I felt like I had to use more because there is no lather. My hair is really soft after using this and my scalp does not feel as dry. I will purchase this shampoo.

Great for Color!
Sampled

This shampoo is great. I like to mix things up so it was good to try something new as I go into dry scalp (winter) season.

Even with my thick and curly hair, the non-foaming still seemed to get the job done. My hair absorbs liquids like a sponge, (it even shocks my hair dresser) so I did have to use more product that I would normally with a foaming shampoo.
