Default How do you use your Darcy's Botanicals products?

I recently purchased Daily Cleansing Conditioner Cream, Pumpkin Seed Moisturizing Conditioner, and Daily Vanilla Leave-in.

Questions...

-If I use the Daily Cleansing Conditioner, should I still use a rinse-out afterward, or would I be fine just skipping that and moving onto a leave-in?

-Do you use the Pumpkin Seed Conditioner as an RO, or is it better as a leave-in? Does it weigh down hair too much as a leave-in?

-What do you think about the Pumpkin Seed Conditioner vs. Daily Leave-in as a leave-in?

Thank you!

Not an answer, unfortunately, but a question. The website calls the DCCC a low lather product, mostly during the rinse. Is this true or is it a full on conditioner?

I use the pumpkin as a RO and a LI. It isn't too heavy for my fine-medium hair as a LI (at least in this cold, dry weather...). Just give it a try!

I use the PUmpkin seed as a RO and LI, more so as a LI. But my hair loves thick LI conditioners.

Depending on how moisturized my hair feels after cleansing determines if I use the Pumpkin Conditioner as a RO or not. I've used the Pumpkin Co as a leave in with no problems. Everyone's hair is different. I would just experiment a little to see what works best for you. This reminds me I need to buy a big bottle of the cleansing conditioner.

I use the pumpkin conditioner as a RO and love. I've always thought it would be too heavy for a leave in, but maybe I'll give it a try.

Well, I've been experimenting some. I tried just using the Cleansing Conditioner and moving straight on to the Vanilla Leave-in, then styling with the Cream-Gel. It felt oddly dry, not frizzy, but just not as smooth as it could be. I guess this means the Cleansing Conditioner is truly a cleanser because my hair felt pretty clean. That makes me feel good because I hate build-up.

Today, I used the Cleansing Conditioner and then left on the Pumpkin Conditioner for a few minutes. I rinsed it out and applied a generous amount the Vanilla Leave-in, and then I scrunched in some Curling Cream-Gel and sealed with a little argan oil. Haha, that sounds like a lot...but my curls were perfect! Right now, they are clean, not weighed down, moisturized/soft, and pretty defined. Loving Darcy's right now!
