Consistency/ease of application: This product has a thick and sticky but creamy consistency. I was dubious about how easy it would be to apply but it went on beautifully and lathered very well. It has a beautiful coconut smell.

Squeak/Slip Factor: The slip factor in the product is phenomenal but exceedingly odd! The directions actually suggest detangling after applying this product. I’ve never detangling with shampoo in my hair before but with this product I did, very successfully.

Clean Factor: I’ve never used a cleansing product which also seemed to condition so well at the same time. Unlike co-washing where my hair feels more moisturized than clean, this product manages to leave my hair feeling clean like it’s been shampooed but soft like it’s been conditioned. It’s uncanny. It does a fantastic job of clearing away dirt and debris without stripping the hair.

Softness Factor: For a cleansing product, very high.

Scalp factor: My scalp loves this product, it’s very soothing.

Summary: The Cleansing Pudding has been added to my regular product rotation for midweek co-washes…nuff said!
