As more people learn about the drawbacks of using shampoos with sulfates and other hair stripping ingredients, they are looking to cleansing conditioners as multi-tasking products that will repair hair. These products are especially useful for those with curly hair, which tends to be drier and frizzier.
Cleansing conditioners can balance curly hair, leaving the roots clean while moisturizing the ends. These products do have to be used more often in order to work properly and require massaging the scalp when applying so that the friction will cleanse. It is also a good idea to use a shampoo every third or fourth wash in order to avoid product build up.
