How many of you have heard or read about cleansing conditioners? Miss 18 Year Old is responsible for my curiosity about this new hair care trend. She does not use cleansing conditioner, she uses bar shampoo (that is a whole ‘nother story though). But I was having a conversation with her about this whole topic, and it picked my interest. I decided to do a google search about it, and I stumbled upon cleansing conditioners. I was curious and wondered what they were like, but that is where it stopped.If you don’t know what cleansing conditioner is, here is a brief synopsis of what they are. Cleansing conditioner is not shampoo. These conditioners contain little to no chemicals (or sulfates) and detergents that strip dirt and oil from your hair, leaving your hair dry, brittle, or damaged. All of the sulfates in shampoo are what makes the lather and leaves your hair with that sqeaky clean feeling. The feeling that most people are used to, and how we gauge that our hair is clean. That feeling is so natural to most people, but that is actually damaging your hair! Can you believe that? I was very suprised to read this- and I read this on many many different websites, not just one. Cleansing conditioner cleans your hair without all of those harsh chemicals and the natural oils in cleansing conditioner add hydration to your hair, and are said to be ideal for people with thick, dry, or curly hair. Well, I fall right into that category! But they do claim to be the best thing for all hair types, including fine, thin, oily hair, and also for hair of all ethnicities.
