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

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!
