When I sprained my right ankle and banged up my left foot I was not willing to step into any regular bathtub. This and the no rinse body wash really helped to get me clean without risking another mishap. I found it useful to use the shampoo twice ( and to towel dry twice) to really clean my hair and scalp. Just like a regular shampoo, I found that I needed to use a conditioner which was easily done with one of my leave-in spray conditioners (mostly on the more dry and damaged strands). Regular shampoo and water is still better, but , nevertheless, this is a great product for bad and stupid situations like I had recently.
