This works wonders on my thick, coarse hair. Makes my hair smooth and manageable without making it oily. The smell is pleasant, but quite strong and long lasting. My only gripe is the amount of product that comes out with each pump. I have to use about 10 pumps to get even coverage over my hair.

Could not wait to try this but there are pros and cons to this as compared to Wen and Hair One (Sally's):
Pros: Doesn't take as much as Wen or Hair One to cleanse my hair. Leaves my fine hair with some bounce but not as much as with Wen. Cleanses fairly well. Didn't need conditioner with this as bottle promises. Made my waves manageable. Made hair shiny.
Cons: Very fragranced and fragrance lingers. Fragrance is a musky vanilla so if you love that type of scent you will love this. I'm not a fan of the fragrance, and while I like it better than dirty hair smell, wished it would fade to a lighter scent. (However I don't like the scent of Wen or Hair One either since they smell medicinal and the opposite of fresh.) This does weigh down my hair somewhat so I've found I can't use this everyday. Also I have gotten some clogged pores on my scalp but not as many as with Hair One. Pump takes some torque to work but that's okay since then you don't get too much that way but if you need a lot for your long hair you will have to work this bottle.
I think if you have wavy or coarse hair you will like this lots better than I do with my fine slightly wavy hair. Since my hair is fine, I would only attempt to use this during the winter--this would be way too heavy for the summer. Will try this as a precleanse to shampoo before giving up on it since it does make my hair shiny and is probably better than shampoo for color treated hair like mine. Certainly worth a try and thank you L'Oreal for making a mass market cleansing conditioner.

To start off, I must say that I am obsessive about my hair and usually only use first tier products. I also do hair and makeup for a living so I know what I'm talking about. I see alot of product reviews where women have unrealistic expectations or do not use a product properly. My hair is slightly processed with demi colour, black and can be frizzy. I recently decided to eschew my usual Alterna caviar shampoo and use only cleansing conditioners for hair health. I used Wen first (expensive and merely okay) then I went to Hair One which was brilliant at first but I tried every one and my hair got used to it and, unless I switched it up,after 8 months it didn't perform as well but was still better than harsh shampoo. I heard about this and decided to try it with low expectations. Be prepared to search for it as I had to go to cvs,walgreens and target before I found it in stock. price-wise it is average; Hair One at 12 ounces retails for 10$ and EverCreme at 8 ounces is around 7$. So it's neither cheaper or more expensive but for long-haired spoken such as myself be prepared to buy more product faster. It's silicone free so I was not expecting smoothness but as I put it on in the shower I realised that I actually used fewer pumps than other products because this spread so well! My hair felt as soft as when I deep condition. I was honestly shocked. The scent is powerful but fortunately it is a warm and spicy brown-sugar vanilla. I prefer to use MoroccanOil vanilla scented product after drying my hair do this does not clash at will. Even after I washed the conditioner out my hair was oddly smooth and untangled. After drying I noticed that my hair took longer to dry which is a good sign and when it did the ends were less scraggly. It emphasised my slight curls. I used it once more before writing this review and though it's been two days my hair is still nicely scented and well-behaved. In short, I really think this is my conditioner from here on out as long as they don't change the formula. My only gripe is the lack if a larger bottle. what a bargain.

This is a review of BOTH products, the Conditioning Wash and the Nourishing Conditioner. I bought them both today, and used them both today.
I have medium length wavy hair, and my main concern is frizz. From HE to LE products, I dread washing my hair, because of the inevitable POOF.
I started (and was hoping to end) with the conditioning wash. I have actually tried washing with conditioner only before, FYI. Still POOF. This was way different than even that. Aside from the nice smell, it did not seem particularly conditioning or cleansing. And my wet hair felt very tangly. So I did what any rational cold, wet, naked woman would do and grabbed for the nourishing conditioner. I will admit that I blindly applied way too much. But within 60 seconds, my fingers were gliding through my hair as I rinsed it out.
At first, while it was towel and air drying, I thought it looked dull. But I added no product, and after it air dried there was ZERO poof. And it looked clean and not dull. Fully dried, it looked very smooth.
My 12 year old daughter did the same thing. She has beautiful thick hair. It was gleaming. (And she loved the fragrance).
I usually use Kerastase. Sometimes Pro-L'oreal. Both of which are OK, but very pricey. This was better. No poof!

This was my first experience with a cleansing conditioner! I'd been wanting to try Wen, but never got around to it. This Evercreme line came out, and I was so impressed with the regular shampoo and conditioner and leave in spray, I finally tried the cleansing conditioner, and OMG! I am SO impressed and in love!! I never thought a cleansing conditioner would be something I would like, since I am someone who has to shampoo daily otherwise I get kind of a greasy scalp... I thought I wouldn't be able to live without the fluffy sudsy cleansing abilities of regular shampoo- but I was wrong! This pumps out like a body lotion- and after letting it sit on my hair for 2 minutes, I rinsed, and then repeat the application with about half as much as previously used- and had this amazingly clean-feeling, soft hair! Seriously, my hair is SO soft from using this. I am super happy!! The only complaint is the same as everyone else- the dispensing pump barely dispenses just a little per pump- so you have to pump like 8-9 times to get enough out to use all over your hair (4-5 pumps my second wash), but whatever- this whole line has been seriously rocking my damn world. The leave-in spray leaves my hair so shiny and soft, too! I am talking SHINY!! My bleached out hair does not have natural shine anymore- thats what happens when you strip the hair with bleach on a monthly basis! but seriously- this entire line has really, really impressed me. I'm a huge fan. The only thing I have yet to try is the masque- and when I do try it, I'm sure I'll love that, too :) UPDATE: Still loving this! I never thought I could use one product in the shower, no additional conditioner, and still come out with the softest, most well-behaved hair! I love it! I'm in love with EverCreme :)

I agree the pump needs to dispense more product than it does, so I end up using about 8-10 pumps instead of what the package directions indicate.
I'm really liking this stuff so far, my hair feels softer and thicker, but does not feel or look dirty like some of the cleansing conditioners I've tried (WEN & Sally's HairOne). I gave up on cleansing cond until I saw this at Walgreens and bought it on a whim. My hair was a little hard to brush through the first time b/c I don't think I used enough product but my hair looks better and was easier to style.
For reference, I have shoulder length, fine and highlighted hair and my scalp tends to get oil if I don't wash daily.
I'll update my review if I notice any changes after I've been using this longer.

I really love this stuff for cleaning and moisturizing, but the pump has to go. It dispenses too little product at once, which would be great if it was a skin moisturizer I was hoarding, but it's cheap enough that I need more in one go! If this was a squeeze tube, it'd be perfect. Nonetheless, this cc is great in the winter to cleanse and protect my super dry, fragile hair. Will buy again.

My hair still needed a conditioner after because I have problems with bad tangles but this is still great stuff. Left my hair super smooth, soft and clean unlike most other sulfate free shampoos. This combined with my conditioner gave me extremely silky hair so there was no need for a leave-in treatment. Love it!

Update: this is way too heavy for my hair. It seems even heavier than some other CO washing methods. Only get this if you have very dry, thick hair
I used to CO wash my hair awhile ago. Not sure why I stopped. I bought this after all the Hair Board discussions. I really like it. It adds quite a bit of volume & body to my hair (always a plus). What I don't like is that I have to use about 10 pumps to get my scalp well covered and it just seems like I'd go through this really fast. At $6-7 a bottle its not *that* expensive but its still more than I would want to spend every few months. That said, when I use it I don't need additional conditioner....
As you can see, I'm a bit undecided on this. But it has reminded me how much I liked CO washing. So I might start doing that again with a cheaper conditioner (Tresemme Naturals maybe?).
For reference: I have long, fine-to-medium hair, colored treated. Have problems with flatness at the roots and slight dryness
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Blond, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Green
Let me start off by saying I have fine hair that gets oily very quickly at the scalp. I started experimenting 4 months ago in co-washing, using everything from Wen, Suave, Aussie, etc. Despite my best efforts, I would still be greasy about 4 hours after cleansing. My hopes were that cowashing would balance out my scalp.
Enter Evercreme. First, the price point is great. Hella cheaper than Wen, and even cheaper than Hair One (Sally's dupe). Secondly, the fragrance is just like Dior's Hypnotic Poison (a warm, spicy vanilla). It IS highly fragranced, so if you're sensitive to scents you might want to pass. Since my hair is a greaseball by morning, it takes a lot of product to get it clean. I have to use about 10 pumps for my just-past-shoulders hair. I massage it into my scalp thoroughly, and don't get much lather the first go round. I comb it through (it gives excellent slip for my hair) and leave it in a few minutes. Then I rinse, and repeat with less product (about 5 pumps). It usually lathers a bit more, but it definitely is a low-lather product. Comb through, then rinse again. Then I usually blow dry with a round brush.
Using Evercreme, my hair is full, bouncy, SO incredibly shiny, and smooth. And best of all, it stays less oily all day! Yes, by morning I still have to cleanse, but as long as it gets me through a 12 hour work day I'm happy! Overall, I'm really in love with this product. L'oreal, if you're reading this, PLEASE make a 32oz size!!!!
**1/24/12 UPDATE** I just bought my 3rd bottle because I don't want to run out. My hair still is amazing using this product! And still less oily!! I find I don't have to use as much product as I needed at first, an added bonus! And I still really hope they make a 32oz size!
**10/10/12 UPDATE** I stopped using this a while ago. Started to get greasy again, and my ends dried out. Went back to Wen for a while and now I'm using Clear Strong Lengths
Age: 30-35 Skin: Oily, Tan, Cool Hair: Black, Straight, Fine Eyes: Black
Gently yet effectively cleans my hair and scalp without stripping color.
Concentrated so you don't need to use much, making it more economical.
Leaves hair soft shiney and easy to manage.
I usually use Kerastase and L'Oreal Professional products, but this is salon quality at DS prices!
Cons: Highly scented, if you are sensitve to fragrance, this might be too strongly scented.

After hearing about Wen products, but not being able to afford them I was very excited to see L'oreal had a version of the no shampoo cleansing conditioner. The cleansing conditioner cost $8. Smells GREAT. Was a little tricky to use and the results were just, o.k. I felt like my hair still needed more conditioner. It felt on the dry side. The one thing i did notice was that my hair looked very shiny. Im on the fence on this conditioner. I think this would be more suitable for normal not dry hair types.

First of all, this is a review for the Intense Nourishing Conditioner, not the Cleansing Conditioner. Sorry! The system wouldn't recognize this item. I was not a huge fan of the EverPure or EverStrong lines before, usually after a week, my hair was worse off than I started. I torture my medium, coarse hair. I live in a dry climate with hard water, shampoo my roots daily (very oily scalp) and blow dry and flat iron. I am also on a budget, so am usually scouring for decent DS poo and conditioners. I saw this at Target and thought I'd try it, God knows my hair needs moisture! I began using it daily on Monday, changing nothing else in my styling routine. As of today, my hair is noticeably smoother and softer and each day my dry ends have become more and more moisturized. I haven't even used a weekly deep conditioner yet! To top it off, I have lost NO volume! And I absolutely LOVE the scent. I have to say, 5 days in and I am hooked.
UPDATE: I quit using this as my ends started to fry. Not sure why, but change in conditioners helped so I am chalking it up to this product.

I just deleted my previous review to start over, because it was a long time before I used this again. I have been using Redken All Soft, and I wanted to alternate with another shampoo/conditioner on every other wash. I chose Tresemme Split Remedy, and my hair was immediately full of silicone and very hard. The ends looked fried, and it felt dry. So I dug through my stash and decided to try this again. I've always liked it, but in the summer it was too heavy. Now that's it's fall/winter this has saved my hair. I haven't wanted to even bother with separate products. It makes my hair soft and clean, but it doesn't strip it. Yes, it is very thick and longer hair needs a lot of pumps, but this has lasted me months and months. There is a lot of concentrated product in this bottle.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Cool Hair: Brunette, Curly, Coarse Eyes: Green
Pros: This is way better than Hair One from Sally's. It is cone free and doesn't burn because it has no menthol. I am currently doing the curly girl method and this cleans a little better than co washing. It has a good slip and lathers a teeny bit. The vanilla scent is fantastic! I didn't need an extra conditioner with it either.
Cons: I think this is drying out my hair. I have this issue even with sulfate free poos because whatever they use to replace the sulfates is still drying to my hair. For now I will be sticking with co washing with Tresemme Naturals.
