Default Yes to Cucumbers?

Ok, so I bought this this week (along with Giovanni SaS - PJ!!!), and wondered what everyone's take was. (I tried the search feature but it didn't turn up much. :/)

Bout both the low poo and condish! Thoughts on these??

I love the condish but haven't tried the poo. I find it has good slip and use it mainly as a cowash between poos. But I'm such a PJ it's hasn't been getting as much love lately. But I would definitely recommend!

Thanks, Chloe!

I have heard a few good things here and there about it. Still trying to decide which low poo to take on my trip! Lol!!

I'm curious about the Yes to Cucumbers poo because it's one of the few that's readily available in stores here, and very affordable compared to CJ poo, so I'm going to follow your thread, Jas.

Default What's Yes to Cucumbers?

I just don't know Yes to Cucumbers. A tv story or just the fruit Cucumbers?

I like the shampoo and the conditioner. Both make my hair soft, the shampoo, great scent, cleans well and still makes my hair feel soft, not stripped at all. The conditioner also is great, good detangler and for moisturising.

I really like the conditioner, use it as RO, LI and as addition to my honey-olive oil DT.
Haven't tried the shampoo yet, but didn't it have sulphates?(although I heard something about formulachange somewhere)

No, it's sulfate free! The y2carrots had sulfates, but not the cucs!

ooomg ... why haven't I seen this before? (I probably just looked at the YTcarrotsshampoo and didn't bother looking at the YTCuc.shampoo afterwards)
Next time I'm in Antwerp (where I study) I'll hunt down the YTCucshampoo in the only store where I find it

I found it at Target, but it's not with the hair stuff - it's over with the cosmetics. (So was the Giovanni stuff)

YTC is my HG daily cowash. Love
Love love it. I also have used to as a cowash. It has great slip and found it moisturizing. I've also used it for condish styling and love it. It's an all around product for me but mainly my daily cowash.

I haven't tried the shampoo. I just assumed it wasn't CG. Ill have to try it! Do you know if its protein free like the condish?

I'm a huge fan of the whole Yes to line. I use their face products, body wash, yes to carrot conditioner, and the blueberry conditioner too. ☺

I'm not sure about protein free - in fact I thought the condish had protein! But I do know the poo is sulfate free!

I tried YTcucs yesterday, and really liked them!

Jas, did you try both the poo and condish? What are your first thoughts on the poo?

HI, HoC!!!

Yes, I tried the poo and condish! Both were nice! Definitely smells like cucumbers! Lol! But not in a gross way.

The poo was pretty gentle and still cleansing. I am sporting 2nd day hair today after having used it! So clearly it didn't strip my hair at all.

Giovanni was more cleansing than the u2cucs.

I'd recommend giving it a try!
