My hair is easily weighed down by cream based products. However, during the cold months I have to rely more on creams for protective styles and twist outs because my go-to style (wash n’ go) becomes more of an inconvenience.
In January, I began to notice a change in my hair. It was lifeless, dull and just wouldn’t curl the same.
I wash my hair every 5 to 7 days and I was using clarifying shampoos and some sort of treatment every couple of weeks. I figured the texture of my hair was changing
Or, that I was finally seeing heat damage from getting my hair straightened last October.
Being a naturalista ain’t cheap and I wanted to exhaust all my resources (Let’s be real. That’s code for…watch as many tutorials and reviews on Youtube as I possibly could) before I paid a stylist for a consultation and then a separate fee to have my hair done.
My life was blessed with this tutorial right here. I went straight to Sally’s after watching.
I was a little disappointed to find out that the shampoo used in the tutorial is not available in stores. But, there is a Co-Wash in the same line which I love.
The Co-Wash literally melted in my hair and made detangling a breeze. It also left my hair very soft. And, my curls were back poppin’ like they never left!
The one suggestion I have is although, the Apple Cider Vinegar rinse says that it can be used before or after shampooing, I would recommend sticking to using it before. A few weeks after trying the products for the first time, I used them again and when I used the rinse after the co-wash, my hair was full of product build-up and residue. Other than that one small drawback, Hawaiian Silky knocked it out of the park with the Apple Cider Vinegar with Jamaican Black Castor Oil products.
