after being mostly CG for 2 years and growing my hair long, i find that suave or any cg friendly cheapie is just fine for cleansing or rinseout conditioning. i wet and cleanse daily bc i swim in chlorine and pre treat my hair with oils. i could go bankrupt using HCC or nopoo or one c for cleansing-i go thru a 23 oz suave naturals ($1.50 or thereabouts) in about a week or 2. i wash with the cheap stuff and leave in the good stuff, like too shea, one c or any of the better CO's. lately i have been experimenting w garnier fructis as leavein and it seems to be doing a good job, so i might switch over to that as a daily one to leavein and save the real good co's for special occasions...
