This was a change for me, there was no foaming bubbles with shampoo but my hair was clean. The leave-in conditioner softened my hair made my split-end less noticeable. I didn't care for the hot oil I had to wash my hair with regular shampoo to get the oily feeling out of my hair. But the other products in the set out shinned the hot oil. Will buy the cleansing conditioner and leave-in again!
