Grow Gorgeous 11-in-1 Cleansing Conditioner

A one-step hair wash

Cleansing conditioners. They're the new big thing in the USA, and they're slowly working their way over here.

The idea behind a cleansing conditioner is that you skip out the shampoo step when you wash your hair. Instead, you use a special conditioner that cleans the hair at the same time as conditioning it. This allows for hair to be grime free but doesn’t strip the hair of natural oils. I was so dubious about this (was I really going to feel clean?) but my mind was completely changed after using the Grow Gorgeous variation.

I like to apply mine generously, work it into the roots and then clip my hair up and carry on with everything else. Leave it to work for 10 minutes while you do all of the boring stuff – exfoliating, shaving, the lot. What may unnerve you is the fact that this won’t lather much. Don’t worry – it is cleaning your hair – but you’re going to need to make a conscious effort to work it all over your scalp before you leave it to work.

What you’re left with, essentially, is second day hair. It isn’t squeaky clean but it is absolutely fresh enough to wear down if you’d like to. My friend Sophie hit the nail on the head by comparing it to second day hair because she felt as though she could really work with it. There’s no puffiness, frizz or flyaways; it’s like you’ve slept on it already and you’re left with a smoother finish that does what you tell it to when styling.

With naturally dry and curly hair, I’m really getting on well with this. The idea of a cleansing conditioner certainly took me some time to come around to but I’m won over hook, line and sinker. It doesn’t strip my hair, helps with the frizz and leaves me with a much silkier texture.

Grow Gorgeous is available from Boots for £17.99. It’s a big pot, it will go far. Try it.

P.S Their brand tagline is ‘FYI – cutesie, but full of science.’ I wish that was my tag line for Mixed Gems!
