*This is still a work in progress. I'm continuing to add many more questions, and we are still ironing out a few quirks. But we wanted to make this available as soon as possible.

There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

How careful do I need to be when choosing a rinsing conditioner?
I'm more lenient about the ingredients in rinsing conditioners. Some ingredients are fine if you will be rinsing them out, but make me nervous for a product you will be leaving in. This is because water neutralizes or dilutes them, and they won't be in your hair long enough to matter. That's why I'm much more careful with the combing conditioners. I'm not sure exactly what ingredients you are referring to in the rinsing conditioners I recommend, but I'm guessing you mean some of the forms of salt. I think it's bad to leave salt in our hair, but it's fine when you rinse it right out.

Any of the conditioners I recommend would be okay to use as rinsers/ cleansing conditioners. The reasons I don't recommend them is because they are so thick. The rinsers are light, so they are easy to get through your hair and rinse out easily. The ones I recommend as combers are heavy and thick. They are more difficult to evenly distribute and easily rinse out, but the ingredients are fine no matter what. It's more a matter of ease of use.
