Ion Extreme Cleansing Conditioner
Great Sub for Wen
I am a Wen (613 and seasonals) user, but it is very expensive even though I only shampoo 2-3 times a week. I have been looking for a product that I could use either instead of or in addition to (in rotation) Wen. I have used all if the Hair One cleansing conditioners and the Bioterra cleansing conditioner. I prefer the Ion one hands down for my fine, dry, and curly hair. The product is creamy and smells of cherries (and maybe vanilla?). It doesn't come in a pump like the other cleansing conditioners, so it is a little harder to guess the amount needed at first. My hair is soft, shiny, and bouncy with no greasy or residue left behind. I am able to comb my hair with no problem with the product in wet hair, but also after it is rinsed. I wasn't able to do that with the Hair One or Bioterra (though my hair was soft after it was dried#.
It is not as quite as good as Wen, but close enough that I have stocked up on it #I love Sally's B1G1 sales!) and switch between it and Wen.
I feel that it is a bargain and it is worth a try for anyone, especially if you have hair like mine.

Nice for travel, packing
This is a neat product in the sense that it is a two-in-one, but not nearly as drying as a normal shampoo. This is a somewhat runny white crème that smells like sunscreen and cherries and it is easy to use, just rub into wet hair. This does not lather like other products so you may need to use a lot of this product so it does run out faster than others, I've noticed. Depending on your hair type this may leave your hair heavy and greasy the next day, but if your hair is dry like mine form winter weather and from coloring, then this cleansing conditioner shouldn't be too heavy or greasy. I like to use this for short travels since packing one bottle is nicer than packing two bottles! Great for the gym or swimming since it's easy to use. Overall this isn't the best cleansing conditioner on the market, and it can leave hair heavy and greasy, but for the price and ease of use, I do recommend this to people just to try. I keep a bottle of this in my shower next to my normal shampoo and conditioners and I try to use it a couple times a week so my hair doesn't feel as stripped with normal shampoo.

I've been shopping at Sally's my whole life, so I've used a LOT of Sally's products. I think this Cleansing Conditioner is my all-time favorite Sally's product...it's that good for me! It does everything it's supposed to do, and it does it well...plus it smells like Jergen's Cherry Almond lotion. I adore the scent. This makes my hair fell soft, clean, detangled, and it helps keep away frizz.

I'd never tried a cleansing conditioner before this one. I love it! My hair is long and super thick with some natural curl. It leaves my hair soft and shiny.
The only downside, I feel like my scalp gets oily more frequently which means I have to wash it more often.Also, since I have so much hair, I use considerably more than the average person. I wish it came in a larger size.
