I tried the Hair Rules grapefruit shampoo and ultra rich conditioner yesterday and had a GREAT hair day. After two weeks of consistently bad hair days, this was a pleasant surprise. Perhaps it was because I had buildup on my hair and need a good clarifier. I've heard some curlies express concern that the clarifying shampoo dries out their hair; I didn't have that problem at all. Maybe it would be a problem if you used it every day, but I don't see any issues with occasional use. I'm thinking of buying a bottle to have on hand.
The conditioner just glided through my hair and had excellent slip, but it might be due in part to the shampoo already doing quite a bit of detangling work. I'll have to try the conditioner with my regular shampoo to see how it works on its own.
