This is a good affordable conditioning cleanser that leaves hair clean, sufficiently conditioned, smells nice and works well on color-treated curly hair. I have medium-thick wavy/curly hair and wash my hair once every 5 days or so. I use this all but maybe once a month when I do a traditional shampoo and conditioner just in case there is any product build up I want to remove. The other drugstore co-wash I use is by Pantene, also good but more heavily scented than the Herbal Essences one. I'm glad this comes in a large bottle as I need a fair amount for my massive mane of hair. I love how this makes your hair feel silky smooth as it rinses out. My hair is in better condition since switching to a co-wash routine. Thankfully I rarely experience a greasy scalp but if your hair tends to get oily quickly then I don't know if you'd like this very much. Then again, maybe it would normalize your scalp in the same way that putting facial oil on oily skin normalizes it? I'm definitely a fan of cleansing conditioners and will continue to use and purchase this one and the one by Pantene.

I like this cleansing conditioner. I have fine, fly away hair. I wash my hair with just about any shampoo and use this cleansing conditioner instead of regular conditioner. It leaves my hair soft, a bit fuller and weighs it down just enough for styling.

After hearing good things about cleansing conditioners, I decided to pick this up while at my local drugstore. It comes with a decent pump and the consistency is thick and creamy. Definitely thicker than I was anticipating, almost like a body butter. Unfortunately, this didn't work out for my hair. I have fine hair and it left a terribly greasy residue. And so, it sat in my shower, unused. That is until I tried it on my skin on a whim. GAME CHANGER. It left my skin silky smooth to the point that I couldn't help touching my skin all day. The scent also lasted on my skin for hours which was another unexpected plus. Would I recommend this for those with fine hair...probably not. However, if you're looking for a way to soften your skin in the shower, I'd definitely recommend giving this product a spin. One note about the scent, it's powerful, so if you don't like rosemary and peppermint, I'd look elsewhere. It took me awhile to learn to like the scent, but it has grown on me. I wish it came in other scents though.

Wow, my review is hella long. Clearly I like to talk as you can see. I also didn't take my Adderall.My hair: length is to my mid-back/bra strap. Fine/regular, ombre so bleached ends plus extensions thrown in for good measure. Oily scalp with dry ends. Overall as healthy as it can be with bleach, coloring and heat styling almost everyday. I wash every other day with dry shampoo in between. My hair tangles like mad, especially in the fall/winter wearing jackets, scarves, dry air, etc. This cleansing shampoo is great for my hair. My hair is clean but not stripped and dry after using it. I still use a leave in conditioner and some type of serum while wet, mainly because I blow dry and flat iron it a lot, and I'll never give up my blow dryer or flat iron! You'll have to pry those from my cold dread hands, even then I'll still use them in the afterlife/grave/wherever I may go, haha. Before, even with my leave in and serum it was still dry and tangled! But not since simply changing to this product! I'll definitely re-purchase this. Of course, the product junky that I am I'll probably stray, because it's in my blood, but come right back to it, once I realize the error of my wicked ways. I don't read labels because I really don't care what is in something, just as long as it works. I'm not scared by a silicone or a paraben or something totally unnatural. So I have no clue what is in or not in this. I have the awesome pump bottle of this. It's like a thick deep conditioner, but pumps out the product easily. It works better if your hair is really wet, to really be able to get those fingers in to clean your scalp. I have no sense of time whatsoever, (that's why I take Adderall, which some days I clearly forget to take), so I just leave it in until I'm done with my shower. Some days I linger in the glorious hot water (yep, love a hot ass shower, red skin and all). Some days I'm just I'm just in there for a bit. My nose is fucked, so I have no idea about the smell....seems fine to me. In fact I like a good smelling shampoo. I do get compliments from cute guys, that I allow near me, that say my hair smells soooo good. Whether that's true or not, I love a good ego boost, so I choose to believe them. So yeah, there's my story.

I'm on my third bottle of this. I haven't used it in place of my regular shampoo, but I use it as my second shower shampoo after the gym or after a humid day. I have a weird OCD thing where I have to wash my hair everyday, and every time I shower. This moisturizes my hair without stripping it, at the same time making it feel clean. I love this stuff! I hope it's never discontinued !!

I'm on my 2nd big chop and this product has worked for me throughout my journey. I use this as my mid week cowash and follow up with some lavender castor oil. I have thick 3C hair and this product cleanses and moisturizes my hair to perfection. I'm on my 3rd bottle. Only issue is with the pump reaching the bottom of the bottle. besides that great product!

I was looking to try a new shampoo/conditioner and saw this at Target for $4.99. When I used it the first time, I was so happy at how quickly this washed the oil out of my greasy roots. Normally I had to use a lot of shampoo to break down my hair's oil, but this cleared it up almost immediately. It took about 2 weeks for my hair to adjust to this product, and in those two weeks it felt greasier than usual. My hair type: nearly shoulder length, thick, fine textured, slight natural wave. Here is how I use it:1. Apply 3 pumps of product into hair, distributing throughout but primarily focusing on dirty areas (for me, it's my roots and the back of my hair)2. Rinse after about 2 minutes3. Apply a small amount of shampoo to roots to remove any residual conditioner where I don't need it (again, my roots)Pros: -Breaks down oil quickly-Smells great-Pump bottle is nice and sturdy, and easy to use-My hair is shinier and softer than it was before using this product-BONUS: I love this as a cream for shaving underarms and legs!Cons:-Is very moisturizing, so I still have to use some shampoo-I can't go as long without washing as I did beforeThis product makes my hair really shiny and soft. The downside is I have to wash my hair more often with this because it is so moisturizing. I recommend using a heat protector since this product is not enough to protect from styling damage.

I started using cleansing conditioners 3 years ago. I only use traditional shampoo when I get samples. This is one of my favorite co-washes. The smell is light and natural, minty and herbal. Because of my job I have to wash my hair everyday, which is why I switched to co washing. This cleans my hair and doesn't dry it out. It doesn't weigh my hair down either. I can wash and air dry with out even brushing my hair. I do have super straight so that's probably why I don't need to brush it. The only downside is the packaging. The pump doesn't touch the bottom that well. I have to either transfer the rest to a different container (it's about a week and a half uses still) or take the cap off and shake out what need every time.

I used to think this was a good product as this was my first cleansing conditioner ever, but I've noticed there are better things in the drugstore. I made sure to apply the conditioner straight to the scalp and then massaged it in, and distributed the rest of the product down to the ends of my hair. In all, this process took about 5 minutes and 7 pumps of product. I was astounded at how it would not spread to the rest of my hair like other cleansing conditioners I've tried; it has a strange wax-like formula to it that really just sticks to the hair and makes it feel heavy. I also did not feel any tingling on my scalp even though this has a minty smell to it, which leads me to believe that this might contain some artificial perfumes(?) [someone correct me if I'm wrong]. After my hair was dried, it did not feel clean even after all the scalp massaging. My hair was soft but it felt heavy and full of residue. I will give this 3 lippies for these reasons:1) The smell-- The mint-rosemary smell is a bit too strong for me (make sure you smell it in-store), but I'm not going to lie and say it does not smell good...honestly, if I hugged a friend and her hair smelt like this I would ask her what product she was using. Oh! And I feel as if the scent is fairly unisex.2) Texture- I know I was complaining about the texture, but perhaps it has to do with my hair type. I have normal to thick hair that is wavy-straight (it leans more on the normal-straight side). My friend who has curly, course, thick hair has used this and loves it.3) Packaging- This product comes in a pump that is very sturdy. Just try to avoid putting this up on a shower-rack as it is not something you want falling down and hitting you.My last con I have with this product is that it cost $7.99 CAD and is only available in Rexall/Pharma Plus here in Canada. I think I have seen the rose scented one at Walmart, but I have a funny feeling that this product and that product are not the same...Overall: Save your $$, try a different cleansing conditioner (Pantene :))

I've repurchased this repeatedly, as well as the Colour Me Happy version - I love them both! I think they work well for what you're paying for. I've bought expensive cleansing conditioners, and I found that these seem to work much better in my hair. I think if you're curious about them, you should give them a try! The price makes it much easier to do that.
