|My fav from above is $1 VO5...detangles my kynxx like no other!|
It's been a little over 2 months since I last shampooed my kynxx. After reading Curly Girls by Lorraine Massey I decided to try her technique and do what made sense, to me. I'm not one to follow trends and word of mouth suggestions but when I read or hear anything that just makes common sense, I'm quick to take heed and make the required adjustments. At this point I can honestly say I am a full fledged Co-Wash Junkie. Nothing has made my hair look or feel the way it looks and feels after I co-wash. Even when I pre-poo with oils or conditioners and even when using sulfate free shampoos of various brands, no shampoo I've tried easily untangled, defined, and moisturized like a good old co-wash. Since my coils are tight and I dont have much product build up from keeping my hair in mini-twists, I have been able to omit shampoo from my regimen completely, my natural oils dont even reach my ends. Only thing is....I need to wash my hair as I am now feeling sebum building slightly and need a gentle way to cleanse my scalp.
I read blogs and forum comments and noticed that many Naturalistas have opted for the no-poo lifestyle and as one I understand the value from it. I still need to have something for times when my scalp needs to be cleansed so as of today I am in search of the perfect shampoo. Perfect meaning a shampoo that will leave my hair clean yet looking and feeling the exact way it does after I co-wash. A part of my Ayurvedic regimen includes scalp cleasning from Shakaiki powder found in the Henna I use and at times I mix it with Brahmi and Amla for my bi-weekly treatments. Yet and still the beneficial ayurvedics don't leave my hair with the silky feel of conditioner washing.
I've had my eye on a few shampoos Im going to try. Terressentials Pure Earth Hair Wash and DevaCurl-No Poo and/or One Poo, are top of my list. Hopefully, I can find them in small or sample sizes this way if my hair doesnt agree with them it wont be a total waste of money. Product reviews to come!
