To wash my hair, I sometimes use shampoo that’s sulfate free but mostly I use co-wash products. I don’t like to co-wash with conditioner, however. I believe that only products formulated for cleansing the hair should be used to cleanse the hair. Cleansing conditioners (or co-wash products) are gentler than shampoos and there are a couple that are staples in my hair care regimen. Eden Bodyworks All Natural Cleansing Co-wash with Coconut Shea is one of them.
How I Use Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Cleansing CoWash
Following my low manipulation hair regimen, I use this product once per week (when I’m not shampooing that one time per month) to cleanse my hair and scalp. I do not use this product for anything but.
Cleansing conditioners like this one from EdenBodyworks tend to be a lot more moisturizing than shampoos (even sulfate free ones) so that’s why I use them more often. EdenBodyworks’ co-wash is very moisturizing and has tons of slip so it makes washing my hair effortless. The smell is also very pleasant. Other than Shea Moisture’s Coconut and Hibicus Cleansing Conditioner Cowash, I can’t ever see this leaving my list of staple hair products.
Because this cleansing conditioner contains aloe and keratin, with regular use it has the potential to strengthen the hair shaft and smooth the hair’s cuticle. Whenever I wash with this product, my hair is left soft and very manageable. If I were to skip my deep conditioning (which I don’t recommend anyone ever do…but it happens very rarely), I would feel confident that my hair is left in good condition after use.
