CJ Daily Fix

Been using this about once a week. I feel like I just need a "cleanse" now and then and all I do is cowash and RO with suave, unless I want something heavier, then I do Smoothing Condish. But can DF be drying?

What do you guys think of it?
3b/fine/normal porosity/normal elasticity

(don't ask me to pronounce that!)


Want to grow it long again!
And simply want to figure out this hair of mine!
I liked it this past summer, but now it just turns my hair into a flat, overly-soft, limp mess. It's definitely not drying for me.
2C/3A, fine, higher porosity.
There is a well established thread on DF (under the search function).

If I put it in a second time to get it to "lather" since I feel like I need to use it twice, then I feel dry, if I were to put it in just once I guess it would be okay.

I need shampoo, so I am going to order Curl Junkie shampoo as soon as I can afford it, but I will laugh very hard if my hair loves the shampoo better than the cream cleanser. Of course I'll be very pleased!

The hard water here means I suffer from build up very easily!
My hair gets matted and ratty after 2 days, I'm lucky if i can do something on day 3. Are we supposed to just condition instead of cleansing? I like to start fresh.
I wet and condition my hair every day, but I only cleanse my hair 1/2 times a week.

I've used that as a leave in, a RO, and a deep treatment in a ten day period and never had anything but amazing results with it- guess I'm in the minority, but I'd say do what works for you.

I might start a thread on cleansing conditioner so everyone can write their experiences and compare them all.

Can anyone say how Daily Fix compares to Jessicurl Hair Cleansing Cream? I'm thinking of switching to Jessicurl b/c Daily Fix makes my hair too dry and flat. It's too heavy for my hair. I'm wondering if Jessicurl would be better for me.

I use CJ Daily Fix every two to three weeks for it's chelating properties. I take it with me to the salon when I get my haircut/highlight every six weeks--and have them use it when they wet/wash my hair. I've never had an issue with it, if I've had a "need" to use it more frequently.

With DF I'm having no issues in that department. It doesn't weigh me down but I've been pairing lighter conditioners with it.

I use the DF 4-5 times a week and low poo in between for a fresh start.

I've only been using DF maybe once a week if that -

But what would be drying about it?

I have found that CJDF tangles my hair, but I have very porous hair. I prefer Blended Beauty cleansing conditioner. It leaves my hair feeling like silk... but it is way too expensive.
Ah...to be a well pampered pootiecat. I can sleep on my owner's lap. Roll over on my back when I want my stomach rubbed. Purr with delight. Suddenly jump off and walk away for no reason. Not respond when I am called. Throw my leg up and lick with intense abandon. Sleep 85% of the time. Hang my head off the couch and view the world upside down.
