This is the type of product that I had been looking for to add into my hair products stash since March when I decided that I want to start co-washing more than shampoo-ing my hair. What drew me to it was the fact that it’s a cleansing co-wash so that meant that it had some cleaning properties which for me is a plus, because I find that sometimes just co-washing with conditioner doesn’t actually ‘clean’ your hair and can lead to product build-up.

Although product will not lather, it is important to make sure every strand of hair is covered. Continue to massage through hair for 2-3 minutes and rinse thoroughly. Proceed with III Sisters of Nature Curling Gelo, Spiral Pudding or Lengthening Creme depending on your desired style
How I used it Exactly as prescribed in the directions, although I proceeded using my other products once I had rinsed this one out of my hair
My thoughts This product worked well my hair, it gave great slip and my hair felt soft after using it. The product smell does linger a fair bit after using it. Because the product does not lather, I found that I had to apply a lot of the product to cover all my strands. This means that I could get a maximum of 4 uses per bottle – and as my hair grows, this number will decrease.
Worth the purchase? I am on the fence about this one, even though the product works very well, the amount of uses that I will get from one bottle is a worrying factor. If it was a deep conditioner, I would definitely consider it, but as a quick rinse out product, it’s too expensive for me. I will not be buying it again.
