Jessicurl's GLS works well on my hair. It feels clean but not stripped. I do wonder if I'm getting it distributed throughout my scalp sometimes--it doesn't suds up much. I use other shampoos like Cream of Nature and Activate (love Activate shampoo!) in rotation with GLS. Haven't tried the HCC, but I have a sample that I'll try on a really bad hair day. Guess I'm not much help, am I?!
