Okay…apparently people misunderstood me. I compared the No Poo to CJ Daily Fix, which is also a cleansing conditioner. NEITHER are supposed to be true conditioners (and also should not be left in the hair, even though the CJ makes me feel like I want to leave it in), which is why I said I was surprised that I don’t need to follow up with another conditioner with the CJ, while I feel it’s necessary with this one. A cleansing conditioner is ALWAYS different from a regular conditioner because they contain ingredients to cleanse your hair (usually coco betaine), ie, take something away, while other conditioners do not cleanse and “add” something to your hair (moisture/hydration). In terms of stripping/dryness issues, from most stripping to least stripping, I would rate the products: Shampoo > Cleansing Conditioner > Conditioner. I never thought the No Poo should be used as one’s sole conditioner in the shower. Hopefully this clears up any confusion.
