DIY: cowash

Hey guys, so today I’ve decided to share my DIY COWASH with you guys. Some of you may ask yourselves “what is a cowash?” , well… Co-washing is short for “conditioner-only washing.” It means skipping shampoo and relying solely on conditioner ( because sometimes we get lazy ) . My cowash recipe is natural and gives my hair that moisture & shine that it needs, it also makes my curls look flawless ( but you guys never see them because I always comb my hair out👀 ). Let’s get straight to it… 

You’ll need: 

  1. a conditioner of your choice
  2. 2 tablespoons of raw coconut oil
  3. 2 tablespoons of raw Shea butter
  4. 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil 
  5. a jar for storage 

What to do: 

Take your jar and fill 3/4 of it with your conditioner, next add your coconut oil, Shea butter & olive oil { I suggest leaving them out to melt a bit if they are pressed, if not just use a blender to mix all of your ingredients together } et voila your cowash is done & ready for use {use it like your basic shampoo}.  Feel free to add more oils such as Argan oil for increase shine and to cover the smell of the Shea butter ( as it can be strong ). 

Your cowash is ready to leave your hair feeling great.
