Wow, I had the same experience with these products! The Cleansing Cream is great as a cowash, even though I'm not cowashing too often. Moisturizing, too. I love the Pumpkin RO, and the protein doesn't affect me at all! I find that it absorbs a lot better, though, if I use a lowpoo as opposed to the Cleansing Cream. But I still like the Cleansing Cream a lot
My hair hated the Shea Butter Moisturizing Cream too. It dried it out and made it weird. Maybe it was the silk protein?
