I did not expect to like this co-wash, but suprisingly, I do! I am a sucker for anything minty or tingly smelling, and I love the smell of this. It smells like rosemary mint with a couple of drops of lavender added to balance out the super 'clean and refreshing' scent. I am beginning to suspect that I may need to follow a modified CG routine, since EVERY SINGLE TIME I use a product with silicones in it, my hair does amazingly well. The products I like best (TreSemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture, Aussie Moist, etc) all seem to provide my hair with a layer of moisture it just cannot hold onto without some sort of 'cone' in it. My hair does not retain moisture well at all. I'm not sure if the HE Naked actually cleansed my hair all that well, but I really wouldn't know the difference to begin with since I rarely shampoo my hair (maybe once a month), I just wanted something that would add moisture. My hair has an extreme dryness problem. I used this product and then co-washed with Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle, then followed my normal routine of applying leave in, oil, and a styler. The result was gorgeous defined curls that have bounce, volume and body-AND 2 days later, my hair isn't dry as a bale of hay. I will definitely be using this product again and using a clarifying shampoo every two weeks to reduce buildup.
This cleansing conditioner was mediocre. First off its VERY thick. The smell is sort of minty but it just smells weird and off putting for me. It did cleanse my hair like it said it was supposed to, but it cleaned it no better than literally other conditioner out there. The slip was meh, nothing to rave about. It did not hydrate my low-porosity hair or do anything else for it. But the biggest reason why I did not like it was because it contains SILICONES. silicones in a cleansing conditioner? Big no no. With a cleansing conditioner its supposed to get rid of build up and dirt and grease, but this can cause build up because of the dimethicone in it. Im especially careful with silicones because my hair cuticle is flat enough as it is. Rather than the dimethicone i like the ingredients and the price, but i will not repurchase.
I bought this on a whim last week, just to see what would happen. I love it! It smells wonderful (I could still smell it the next day) and my hair has never been softer or more curly. I used this, rinsed, no leave in and just mousse and had a lot of comments on how curly I was. You will need more than the 3-4 pumps suggested unless you have short hair. Mine is shoulder length and I use 5-6.
