Shea Moisture CoWash Conditioning Cleanser Product Review!!


Shea Moisture Coconut&Hibiscus Cowash Conditioning Cleanser


It’s a known fact that I am addicted to the Shea Moisture Coconut&Hibiscus line (Click here for review) - however I had never tried the Cowash. When I finally got my hands on the Shea Moisture Cowash I was very happy. My hair responds very well to the other products in the line so I knew my hair will love this as well. And IT DID!


Key Ingredients: 

Coconut Oil to hydrate and protect while reduce breakage
Silk Protein to smooth the hair shaft for a soft silky feel

How I used the Cowash

I tried it first on 2 week old dirty hair just to see what will happen (I had my shampoo in the shower with me just in case). I never wash with conditioner on dirty hair because my hair will not be clean and I will only be causing product build up. I expected the Cowash to leave my hair soft but not clean. Boy was I WRONG! In the shower I applied a generous amount to fully saturated head of hair and massaged my scalp. I realize how soft my hair was feeling so I went on to finger detangling and then comb through once and the process was a breeze. Girls my hair was so soft to the touch its amazing. I rinsed the product out and my hair and scalp was clean and my hair felt good.

I followed up with the Shea Moisture Curl and Style Milk. They are from the same line so naturally they work well together. I reused this product twice on semi clean hair just to hydrate my hair and again, I love it. Will I pick this up on a hair product run? YES!

Pros:

  • Left my hair feeling soft.
  • Detanging was easy.
  • Cowashing with regular conditioner can easily result in product buildup. This product did not leave my hair feeling film coated. I liked that.
  • Easily found at any target and most beauty stores
  • Contains no parabens, sulfates, mineral, gluten, or synthetic fragrance


Cons:
The only thing bad I can say about this cowash is that it cost $11.99 in Target versus the $9.99 i am used to. I went to 2 Targets and this is the price that I saw. To wash with this 8oz bottle three or 4 times it done. It’s a fight though because I love it.

But don’t be sad, Target now has it on sale for $9.59 and the good thing is you might be able to get it on BOGO sale so I say STOCK UP. LOL!


Have you tried the Shea Moisture CoWash Conditioning Cleanser yet?

  1. I laugh when I see your cons (the price).
    You know why ?
    Because I live in France and each Shea Moisture product are sold 26$... So 12$ worth it's a gift LOL.
    I wish I could find the Cowash Conditioning Cleanser but they don't sell the new ranges for the moment (in France).
    Thanks for the review and sorry for the mistakes (i'm a french speaker).

  4. Shea butter is an ivory colored natural fat extracted from seed of the Karite Nut tree, also called the Mangifolia tree, found in the semi-arid savannahs of West and Central Africa. This tree begins to bear fruit after about 15 years, and can take up to 30 years to bear a quality crop of nuts with a high content of irremovable fatty acid. It is this irremovable fatty acid that gives Shea Butter its unique healing properties and makes it far superior to cocoa butter and other vegetable butters.

Words of Encouragement

Hey Loves!

A few days ago I was very down on myself and needed some encouragement. My boyfriend sent me the following words to uplift my spirits and it did.  I feel like it will help some one too so please read below.

Me: Well, I woke up late,

Me: My car took forever to start,
God: Okay
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait,
God:Huummmm...
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call.....
God: All right
Me: And to top it all off, when I got home ~I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massage & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?

God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.
Me (humbled): OH
GOD: I didn't let you…

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

Hi Loves,

I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation.

In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs.



Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?
