Dry natural hair was one of the reasons I almost gave up on my natural hair journey. My kinks would constantly break off especially during wash day. It seemed like I wasn’t even experiencing any growth. So if you have super dry natural hair like me, allow me to introduce a co-wash to your routine. It worked for me and I’m sure it would work for you too.
A co-wash acts as a cleaning conditioner right between your Sulphate – free shampoo and your conditioner. While the shampoo strips the hair of its natural oils and removes some product build up. A co-wash is lightweight and gentle to your hair, it hydrates, cleans and conditions. There by helping your leave in conditioner work even better
This product is great for anyone with extremely dry hair, chemically processed, colored or relaxed hair. Even if you’re transitioning, a co-wash is the go to product for that much needed moisture.
For this post, I made a list of co-wash cleansing conditioners that are easily available. They come in a range of prices so there’s something for everyone, even on a tight budget.
