I am one of those people who HATESSSS to mix brands, hahaha! I always have to use one product line at a time. I guess it's my OCD?
About a month into CG, my hair felt great, but it was a little greasy. I knew I needed a shampoo, but the brand I'm using doesn't make one. I found Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo, and it's awesome! It's a great clarifyer. I plan to use it every 2-4 weeks as needed. It deep cleans but doesn't strip like KC Come Clean, or any shampoo for that matter. Even though I don't like mixing brands, I have to keep this in my shower. This shampoo works very well with Darcy Botanicals products!
