Hair Rules No Suds Shampoo Review

Hi Bellas,

I recently had the opportunity to try out a new product...Hair Rules Daily Cleansing Cream. My hair is colored and highlighted and I'm always in search of products to prevent my color from going brassy and fading. I was excited to try out this product to see how it fared.

Information from Company Press Release:

What It Claims:
Packed with natural cleansers, nourishers and shine enhancers, this deeply hydrating, no suds shampoo dissolves dirt and oils while preserving hair's healthy moisture and sheen. Especially formulated for dry, coarse, over-processed and heat-styled hair, Daily Cleansing Cream is gentle enough for everyday use. Maintains vibrancy in color-treated hair.

Who It's For:
Suitable for All Hair Textures.

Why you need it:
With a few exceptions, conventional shampoos can dry out textured hair, especially kinky, resulting in a spongy, frizzy, fly-away texture. Daily Cleansing Cream gently conditions hair while cleansing. The oils in the formula bind to dirt and oil on the scalp and hair, removing buildup, without stripping hair of its own natural oils. As a result, hair stays soft and pliable, and better able to form a defined, lustrous curl pattern.


My Thoughts:
I used the entire sample of this product to see how my hair was affected. My hair condition is generally dry from coloring so I need a lot of moisture from my hair products. This shampoo has zero suds...instead the oils stick to the dirt from your hair and wash right out. From other bloggers, I've learned that it's common for a lot of organic/sulfate free products to lack the suds that many conventional shampoos contain.

Testing Out The Product
When I used the product, I found that there was indeed absolutely no sud action. This does take getting used to. However, to make up for the lack of suds, I found myself using more product to make sure that I was really getting my hair clean. The instructions say use liberally, so I'm assuming that it was okay. The product is called a cleansing cream, and it definitely felt like I was using a conditioner.

In terms of smell, it had a faint rose scent. I washed it off like normal and followed up with my L'Oreal EverPure Sulfate free conditioner. I figured I might as well stay on the sulfate free tip since I was using this product. Afterwards, I let my hair air dry. My hair felt pretty decent...not stripped and dry, more of a moisturized feel. I used this product for about 2 weeks and found that I had to be careful because if I didn't rinse it out completely, or used too much, my hair got oily quicker and had less of a time span between washes.

Final Thoughts
I decided to do a little research on the product. The website explains that this cleansing cream is best for wavy, curly and kinky hair. That makes more sense! My hair is straight and does not need as much conditioning as the other hair types. As a result, I think that this product was a little too strong for my straight hair. But for kinky, curly and wavy, this moisturizing, gentle no suds cleansing cream is definitely for you! I can see it definitely conditioning the curls and maintaining the wave pattern like it states.

I think I might try this. But I don't know how I can handle not having suds. That's something I'm so used to. And my hair is SO thick I'm scared I won't get all of the shampoo out.

not all suflate free shampoos are suds free, the kiss my face one has some suds, not a whole lot, but i do like it. The loreal ever pure thing made my hair super oily! wtf was up with that? anyways, this product looks interesting enough, maybe I'll check it out.

ive heard a bit about it. Im so used to suds, lather, whatever their called, so it might be a bit weird without it. I need so.. much moisture I might try it, I even use a leave in conditioner.

Hey girl, I know this doesn't have anything to do with the current post but I was interested in that graftobian creme foundation palette and I don't know which one to get: cool, neutral, or warm. I want to start building up a kit for photoshoots and most of the people I'd be working on are caucasian or asian. Any help would be great. Thanks!
