Hair Rules Daily Cleansing Cream

Shampoo that doesn't lather?! What's the fun in that?
I have long hair and I tried Hair Rules Daily Cleansing Cream tonight instead of my usual shampoo. I was really curious to see whether a shampoo/cleansing cream that didn't lather would make my hair feel clean. Using it was a little bit weird, it felt like washing my hair with conditioner. I don't put conditioner on my scalp, only on the ends to midway of the length of my hair. I shampoo to get my scalp clean, since a person's scalp gets sweaty and oily before your hair does. I have to say that I didn't enjoy using this non lathering method of washing my hair. I missed my lather and I spent a lot of time rinsing, because I just felt like I had conditioner all over my head and all worked into my scalp. It felt hard to rinse out.
However, after using this product I'm pleasantly surprised at how super silky my hair feels and it is also really shiny! I didn't use any other conditioners, so actually it saved me that step.
Tomorrow will tell me whether my scalp actually got clean, without my happy lather! If my scalp starts to feel oily and itchy too soon, I'll know that it didn't get as clean as with shampoo that lathers.
I think this is an interesting product, because if it cleans my scalp without drying my hair, I would be able to wash my hair more often without worrying about damage. So I suppose I could learn to live without lather.
