Shea Moisture came out with these co-washing products that are absolutely everything! For those who are new to the concept, co-washing (conditioner washing) means cleansing your hair with just conditioner as opposed to shampoo, which can be very drying for natural hair. When I cleanse with conditioner, my hair retains way more moisture, definition and shine. I tried both of these and the knots literally melted in between my fingers. Shea Moisture added tons of herbs for that extra nutrition and deep cleanse. New staples, for sure! They need to bring these to CVS (in bigger bottles, too, cause my hair laughed at these 8 little ounces). Available at Target and Walgreens, for now.
Have any of you tried them?
My updated Monthly Wash Routine! My hair has gotten so long. And the longer it gets, the easier it is to do. Does anyone else agree?

Instead of just washing my hair with a cheap conditioner, I diluted some all-natural Rhassoul Clay until it was watery, then I mixed it with enough conditioner until it became thick. I cowashed my hair with this and it made such a big difference. I just thought I would share! Peace and Blessings.

Q:Do you wash your hair with warm or cold water?
I cleanse with warm water! The heat lifts the cuticle, so the toxins inside can be removed and health/moisture can be received. I then rinse with cold water, which closes the cuticle, to avoid frizz and help retain the moisture I applied.
