I love HCC. I use it all year and a little more so in the winter when I'm using heavier conditioners and cream styling products more frequently. I don't find it to be over conditioning. It leaves my scalp and hair nice and clean but not too dry.
2b/3a, primarily use Jessicurl and DevaCurl products, Curls Hair Tea conditioner and various gels. I'm modified CG-ish since 5/04.
