My 2nd time using this product and it is okay from what I have tried. I suffer from really bad dry scalp and this product definitely took care of that!! The only thing I have noticed is that, when I use it around my face to clean the front of my hair, it makes my face so red and irritated!! Don't know if it's this product but it's only happened the 2 times I have used this product.
I absolutely love it. It makes easy to finger detangle my hair, my hair feel clean after my co-wash, and it smell delicious.
My type 4a/b hair loved this! Melted as soon as it touched my hair! I was able to finger detangle right away and my hair was so moisturized I didn't need to follow up with a regular rinse-out conditiner. My hair also stayed detangled! My new staple co-wash. Smells great also and a little goes a long way.
Smells lovely and made my hair feel soft and thoroughly clean! I was very impressed, and plan to buy some for my little sister to use on her hair in the future. c:
I don't even know what took me so long to buy this product but I got is on sale for $5 something. It worked so well that I felt a little guilty only paying that much for it. After applying it to a section of hair my hair was de-tangled! When I tell you it took me 16 mins (I time my washes) to wash my 3c, mostly 4a and some 4b hair. I normally use aussie moist conditioner to cowash but this has if not better slip then that plus all those wonderful ingredients. Love love love! This is a new staple product for me that is definitely going to get stocked up on.
This product has saved my super dry, porous hair. I love it, and can't live without it. I have been tempted at times to go back to my old shampoo, and do. I am always appalled as to how dry shampoos leave my hair after using this co-wash. I use it all the time. I'm addicted. It does not leave a build up on my hair and seals in moisture. It's been over a year now, and I have not stopped loving this product. I usually comb this in or run it through with my fingers. I don't rough up my strands of my hair as I would with shampoo. Instead, I pull the product through my strands until they are coated. You might need to add water as you go to get a good slip throughout your hair. I leave it in for a few minutes and then rinse with cool water. If my hair still feels grimy I coat it one more time (a lot loss product the second time around) and rinse. I follow up with curl rehab conditioner, and then As I Am leave-in conditioner. These three products work great for me. Hope this helps!
So many people talked about this product to me that I really wanted to try it even though it's expensive in my country (France) 20€. I finally simply hate this co wash there is something about this product that my hair rejects completly. It's horrible how it dries my mane, it does not detangle my hair AT ALL quite the opposite it messed it up!!! It leaves my scalp completly dry I gave it the benefit of the doubt I mean I used it more than 6 Times and I regretted each time! Want to throw it but when I think of the price...
This product worked wonders on my hair. Great slip, and after rinsing, my hair was extremely soft and smooth. Thumbs up!
OMG I hated this product! If i had known that my hair would feel dry and stripped while using this cowash, I would've used a shampoo instead. Even my dc couldn't remedy my dry hair. I had to start over using another brand's cowash.
Surprised that a co-wash would leave my hair stretchy clean; but it was still very manageable and oh so soft. I did not feel that a leave in was necessary, but I used one any way. Hair felt supple, soft, handled well, curls were visible in all their glory and my hair was happy before the leave in was applied. This product just might replace my current go to which is the Eden Body Works line.
One of the best cleansing cowash conditioners that I've tried. Check out my full review by copying the link and pasting it into the address bar...... http://youtu.be/cUrVg8c3XCc
Turned my hair into straw and it was really drying. Tried it several times. Made my hair so dry that even the conditioner I put in after the cowash didn't work anymore. This is definately a no no for me!
I love this cleansing conditioner!!! Best cleansing conditioner on the market hand down! It cleans the hair well, enough to postpone a good clean with shampoo. Definitely will buy again and again and again!
I love it. Smells great, leave my hair feeling very clean but not "squeaky" clean like with shampoo. My hair feels moisturized and soft after using this product.
This is my product I wash my hair a good workout at the gym. It really helps to remove excess sweat from my head.I don't leave the gym with the sweaty itchy feeling that usually happens after a good workout for me.
Fabulous! Knots slide out like a fantasy! It makes my hair so soft. I used to use tresemme flawless curls which is great too but i HATE the smell, so that's a plus about the co wash, smells amazing too! I highly dislike the packaging so i used a plastic bag to get it into a normal bottle which makes me happier! This is certainly a staple from now on! Until I find something more economical even though 16 oz for $8 is not bad at all but if something comes along, I'll bite. But I love it especially with my tangle teazer are a match made in heaven! My life has been so much better with this product!
I really love this stuff because I use it like an all-in-one or shampoo. If I haven't used any gels or heavy creams, I can get away with just using this and doing a nice massage of it through my quadrants in the shower without a lot of tangling. I also like that my hair and scalp feel really fresh but not squeak-squeaky. It is better, though, if I follow up this product with a deep condition and/or thick conditioner afterward. Am considering not buying shampoo anymore and just using this instead.
HG product here. I began using it while transitioning, but didn't like it much. but after my big chop I fell in love. It leaves my hair feeling moisturized and soft. My hair is clean after use and it detangles my hair quite well.The smell is light, but nice and I must say I love a great smelling product. TWO thumbs up for this cowash! - 4A/4B Natural :)
I like it. My staple was Curl Junkie Daily Fix and I was curious about this. I alternated between the two and the As I Am gives more slip and moisture, while the Curl Junkie Daily Fix cleans my scalp and hair better. I put it away and continued using CJ because it gave me a clean slate for hair styles + cleaner scalp, but overtime the oat flour tangled and dried out my protein sensitive hair. I now stick with As I Am and my hair is happy with the consistent results. I can add more styler after cleansing with As I Am, but it is a true co-wash so I definitely incorporate shampoo into my regimen to keep my scalp fresh. Overall, it is hydrating, affordable, accessible and great for protein sensitive, low porosity heads like me.
I was pleasantly surprised by this co wash. (3B, shoulder length hair, high porosity, low density, fine) Regular conditioners don't work that well as a co wash for me and I got away from unnatural products months ago so, I have been picky. Picky but still not keen on spending much for products. This co wash was so economical that I was skeptical it would be good...I tried it because of the great reviews! I honestly can say that I would buy this again. It's pretty nuetral smelling and really works well. I don't have to use much and the time between shampooing is longer. Hair isn't dried out, very smooth. Love.
I have only used this product twice and so far I think I've my favorite co-wash! My hair and scalp love it! I am only giving it 4 curls because I think I need to use it more before I can give a definitive 5 curl thumbs-up!
I love, love, love this product. I love the scent of it. I love how soft it makes my hair, how it doesn't leave a greasy feeling, and how CLEAN my hair and scalp feel when I use it. I've always had a very oily scalp. This is the only product I've found that works for cowashing for me. I can go 3-4 days before I have to use the cleansing pudding, and I've never been able to go a day without shampooing my hair before. I'm so glad I found this product, and that I can get it for a great price at my local store.
This is one of my holy grail hair products. It cleanses my hair very nicely, while leaving my hair feeling soft and moisturized after I have rinsed this out. Also, it has a pleasing smell to it to it. No matter what hairtype you have, I highly recommend giving it a try.
Very drying. I tried and tried, thinking it would get better or I was doing it wrong. Ugh - no. left me with straw head. :(
Oh yeah, minus one star because it really irritated my eyes. Don't let run off water get into your eyes!
I'm surprised that I enjoy this co-wash...because I'm a product snob. Because it's in a jar, I didn't apply it in the shower. Instead, I used a spray bottle to moisten a small section of hair, apply this stuff, finger detangle, smooth, then move on to the next small section. It took a while to do my entire head because it was gnarly and tangled, but it got the job done. The scent is pleasant. The slip could be more robust, but a spritz of water was able to provide more slip as opposed to adding more product. I used more product than I needed, but it really replenished my moisture levels. After rinsing in the shower, I applied my leave-in, styler, and allowed my hair to air dry. I was pleased that I didn't need to follow up with another rinse-out. My scalp felt cleansed and refreshed. Some of my hair even squeaked, but didn't feel stripped.
love this co wash I was using shea moisture retention shampoo but felt like it was stripping my hair after washing. so I found this and my hair lovessss it. I can detangle my hair so easy this is my hg cowash and the price is not bad i just wish it wasn't in a jar
I'am west indian (Jamaican) & this stuff is holy grail for my mixed 3chair,at first I was hesitating to buy it but omgosh this ish makes my curls pop.
I have combo 2c-3a thin hair. Wasnt impressed by the slip. It actually would not detangle my hair and had to go to my new best killer combo detangler Kinky curly knot and Bee Mine. What a super duo, amazing detangling power. I will NOT be reordering As Iam- just didnt do a thing for my hair but I encourage others to try it may work on your hair.
I was a loyal Deva fan until I discovered I have a gluten & soy allergy...so the hunt began for products that didn't contain either of those ingredients. Some of the As I Am products have wheat in them, so they aren't gluten free, but this product has zero wheat/gluten in it! I have 3b curls, low porosity, and very thick/dense. My hair responds well to thick products (pastes and pommades) that provide at least moderate slip. I would give this product 5 stars if it was thicker and has more slip (so that I could detangle without a comb). Otherwise, it leaves my hair soft and it smells nice.
This works very well for my 4a hair and it works well on my daughters 4b/c hair. It feels very moisturized and healthy. I have no complaints at all.
Love love love this product!! I have thick 3b hair which I recently cut from collar bone to chin. This cowash leaves it soo soft and frizz free and I have had tons of compliments. Will be buying more when it gets low!!!
Love. Moptop gives my hair a little more curl, but it doesn't smell as wonderful(not to mention it's 3x cheaper.) I just wish they offered it in a different type of container. The tub they use is easy to drop - which leads to product wastage. :(
This product is great! I used it while wearing box braids and it left my scalp feeling clean yet hydrated.
I love this product! Cleans my hair gently and melts my tangles away to make detangling quick and easy. It smells great and my hair felt moisturized after. Definitely going to repurchase.
My hair really didn't like this co wash at all. It left imy hair dry, dull and frizzy the few times I used it. It didnt help with detangling or keeping moisture in my hair either.
I love this product, I'm 4a, and it works great in my hair, Smells awesome as well, I give it 10 stars!!..Very happy customer!!
I love this product. I used it when I was transitioning and it kept my hair moisturized. Now that I've BC, it's truly amazing. I use this product most of the time but I will wash with a sulfate free shampoo at least twice a month.
My hair just didn't like this product, as I've stated in other reviews, some things work for some people and they give it 5 stars and some don't and I have to give this 1 star. It felt very dry going onto my hair and didn't cleanse well nor did it help in anyway with detangling.
I can't give it a 5 stars because I haven't used the product longs, but for what I have used it for it was GREAT! I used it as my no poo, actual, cleansing conditioner and as conditioner after a clarifying wash or water wash. SMELL: Awesome CONSISTENCY: Medium Creamy, non sticky SLIP: Easy Use: A little goes a long way, could last a while I have a lot of hair, with medium to coarse texture and fine strands mixed in. My hair DOES NOT like to be weighed down.
I love this co-wash in my 3a hair. I've been CG for 6 weeks. It does a great job of getting product out of my hair with out stripping the natural oils. I previously used the loreal cowash and found my hair felt heavy dirty, and sticky with that brand. My only complaints is also packaging. I really wish it came in a container with a pump.
I love this cowash. It leaves my hair clean and really soft. check out my blog for a detail review. http://www.glamnaturallife.com/2014/03/as-i-am-coconut-cowash-cleansing.html
Pretty good...left my hair soft and moisturized. It not really for when it's humid outside because it really moisturizes. All the same it left my hair feeling very soft n clean.
Great cleansing product and smells pretty good. I have think hair so usually conditioners don't cleanse as well as a shampoo. I apply lots of oil throughout the week so a good cleansing is well needed by day 5. This does the job perfectly. It actually lathers a bit like shampoo, but not as harsh. I will definitely keep this on hand.
One of my staples! Love this product! Only need to wash my hair once. It cleans and leaves my hair feeling moisturized. Definitely will be repurchasing.
OMG I love this product! I have extremely dry irrirtated scalp,that is very susceptible to buildup but my hair gets so dry and brittle with shampoo( even sulfate free). I was looking for a product that could thoroughly cleanse my scalp but also not dry out my hair. The cleansing cowash makes my hair soft and moisturized. I have even detangled my tight curls with this product. The only thing I would change is the packaging, it always seems to make a mess in my shower :)
Used it once so far but amazing results. My curls loo shiny and healthy and they are SOFT! Great for those who don't wash their hair that often. I usually wash mine every 3-4 weeks, so this is awesome for me. Would recommend to anyone trying to show their hair lots of TLC.
My 3B hair loves coconut. This co-wash is awesome! I will keep it in stock. Makes my hair soft and very curly.
So far so good! I love the smell and the texture is creamy but not too thick. I used a good amount for my scalp and then a bit more for the rest of my hair (length is a little past my shoulders when dry). Afterwards I bunned my hair and let it sit while I finished my shower. I thought the slip was good and the comb went through my hair with no struggle. Plus, I tend to lose lots of hair when washing but with this product I lost practically no hair. It didn't leave my hair heavy with grease as coconut-based products usually do, and it cleaned my scalp well. Slip and packaging could be better but I like it enough to recommend.
Excellent!!!!!! Makes your hair feel a wonderful....easy to detangle, smells devine….a little difficult to use in a jar..leaves hair super soft, shiny, and bouncy...Fantastic...minimal shrinkage for a cleansing hair! Makes wash day more bearable!
I love this co-wash. But after reading some of the other reviews... i should state I only use this every few weeks or so. I regularly shampoo once a week. I only use this I have some how had to skip wash day and don't have a lot time for a full wash. But it leave my hair clean and conditioned at the same time. I haven't noticed any dryness
First time I used it, it was great!! Better than any other co wash I have tried. Now when I use it, my curls won't even clump together. It's so weird. It's as if it makes my hair frizzy when wet.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! Smells wonderful and performs wonders. It really "cleans" my hair but conditions at the same time. I take my time massaging my scalp with it to ensure all buildup is removed. I've noticed that my hair is softer after having used it awhile. I think it's the fact that it has no harsh chemicals. I really am in love with this product. It is a must for curly haired girls.
My friend and I had similar experiences with this cowash. It worked GREAT the first two months and left our hair clean/moisturized, but then it just stopped and made our hair feel extremely dry. I cleansed with a regular shampoo to see if maybe I had buildup that was preventing this product from working properlly- didn't work. At the point I was using the cowash, I had not changed anything in my regimen, so I just had to assume that my hair no longer liked this product. I'm still baffled at why this happened since a lot of the ingredients in this cowash are in my staple hair products.
I really like this product. Cleans better than Ouidad Curl CoWash and is very moisturing. Mind you, I just received it a couple of days ago and used it only once. I did not give it a 5 star because of the jar format (not practical in the shower).
I wish I could give this cowash six stars! I have been sulfate free for a while, but my hair had gotten so dry in the winter air and this really brought it back to life. It made it so much easier to detangle and really added great shine. I would highly recommend this.
Best cowash I have ever tried. It's like butter on my hair. As soon as I apply it I can finger detangle with ease. Definitely a staple!
Low porosity, transitioning hair, protein sensitive I did not like this product. I am giving 2 stars for the smell, texture, and mostly natural ingredients. It did not provide real moisture (did not strip hair) and it actually has a skin irritant in it. I was really disappointed by that because its supposed to be all natural. Will not buy again.
This product is just ok on my daughter's hair. She has a lot of hair so I felt like I needed to use a lot of this. Smell is great, but right now I prefer other conditioners such as Tresemme Naturals for co-washing. This product does not have enough slip for my taste.
This product smells good and I thought it would really work on my hair. After washing the conditioner out my hair felt stripped. This was my first time using it. I will give it another chance!
I got two of these at sallys during their bogo sale a week ago. I've read all the rave about it and once I tried it I knew why. i've never used a cowash before, I was using tressemme conditioner and shampoo for curly hair which I loved but would always lose a lot of hair in the shower. after trying out this cowash though I noticed that when I detangle in the shower I don't lose almost any hair anymore! literally about 4-5 strands at most but no more hair balls like I used to with tresemme. also noticed how it cleansed my scalp so well as if I would have shampooed with a normal shampoo. bottom line this stuff is amazing! I do agree however that it has less slip than my old tresemme conditioner but considering its all natural and it leaves my hair just as soft if not softer it passes!! to anyone thinking about trying this and hesitating DON'T! go and do your hair this favor!!
So i really love this stuff. As soon as i put it on my hair, my hair felt like it was instantly softened. The smell is great and it lathers without that soapy feeling really good. This cowash cleans my hair like a normal shampoo would, but moisturizes my hair and it doesnt leave a stripped feeling to my hair. I gave it only 4 curls because its not as much slip to it as i like when i want to detangle my hair and the jar that it comes in is inconvenient. I would rather it come in a pump or even a tube that i can squeeze out. Oh and when i rinse it out, it makes my scalp feel like it was washed with mint :). Refreshed feeling.
Just used this once--like it but found that I really needed something to detangle. I usually use JC gentle lather--which is so moisturizing for me that I don't need a ro. I used a bit of JC Aloeba cond. to detangle, then the AIA leave in. I think the product is good, perhaps a bit drying for me. I really am more 3A. I do recommend trying it, the ingredients are good and it did leave my hair clean.
I was excited to try this product, since I've heard so many good reviews. And also because I was in deep need of an all natural co-wash, because sulfate shampoos were stripping my hair. First and foremost, I was overwhelmed by the smell. It has a very overpowering, almost fake fruity smell. I was expecting something a little more subtle like...I dunno, something more like coconut. Now the product does what it's meant to do, it gently cleanses. However, I realized that after a month of using this product, it suddenly started to make my hair feel like straw, and it was actually breaking off! ( I am sure of this because my hair is only about 6 inches long and healthy, and I'd see hair start to break off almost everytime I co-wash with this.) Almost like it has a short shelf life or something. Similarly, the labeling on the jar starts to peel away after about 2 months, leaving brown stuff everywhere. Overall, I am not very happy with this product and I wouldn't recommend. Already have this product replaced in my hair regimen.
So, I finally tried it. I've been CG since 2011. I love having an actual co-wash, and I love the way it smells! The price is great too. It makes my hair really shiny and soft (detangling is easy too). I have really really thick and fine hair, and I am able to use it even though it contains castor oil, so don't let the castor oil scare you off until you try it. So far I haven't had to use a low poo since I bought this, and I love that (usually can't go a week without low poo)! This really keeps my scalp clean. It feels really good when I massage it into my scalp, and I love that my hair smells like coconut all day!
I've bought the As I Am Coconut Co-Wash three times hoping it would work as a staple cleanser in my hair regimen but after using it on several different occasions, I've had to give the jar away every time. I bought a second and third jar of this even though it made my hair feel gross for a couple different reasons: it's really inexpensive for the amount you get, it doesn't leave my hair too squeaky clean, it contains castor oil, my favorite 'growth' oil, and at one point, this cowash was all over youtube and natural hair blogs. Despite all of this, it just does not work for my hair. It goes on rough, meaning there's not enough slip, and it also makes my hair feel like straw. It's kind of hard to explain but when I use this product, my hair strands feel spiky, as if there are sharp miniature sticks attacking my fingers as I try to work it through and massage my scalp. I think this happens because instead of smoothing the hair cuticles, this co-wash somehow raises them. This can be remedied with a 15 min. deep conditioner session, but the point of using a cowash for me is to shorten wash day, not add another step :( I don't seem to have any issues with other coconut oil based products so I really don't know why my hair hates this so much. Needless to say, i've learned my lesson (finally) and won't be using or gifting this product anymore!
IF LOVING THIS STUFF IS WRONG, I DON'T WANT TO BE RIGHT. Smells like some delicious coconut pudding I get to rub all over my hair. So unfair how good this smells, I'm jealous of myself. And makes my hair feel like a natural woman. Soft, soft, soft, and cared for. It's lovely. I don't even want to try anything else, because I'm so in love. Thank you for making this product, hair gods! And $6.80? God is real.
This is my favourite co-wash. It smells divine and leaves your hair so soft. As it is protein and glycerin free I can use it year round. My only complaint is the tub, but because of its quality and price I can live with it!
THE BEST PRODUCT EVER!!!! It defines curls and makes it soft. :) And another thing is this product is economical! BUY THIS BUY THIS!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
I have 4b/4c high porosity hair I just purchased my second jar and I still had some left from my first purchase because I put mine in a pump bottle so it's very economical and a great price more. Now the product itself is amazing I will never co wash with another product is moisturizing never striping the best smell nice slip definitely makes me more confident in my natural hair journey and did I mention the YUMMY SMELL! definite HG product
I absolutely love this co-wash. I can just feel that my hair is clean. It's very moisturizing as well. It also has great slip. This co-was is very gentle and doesn't feel harsh on my hair. Love It !!!
Pretty good. It gets the job done. Doesnt really moisturize that much for me and the slip is alright. I still can get the tangles out without using a comb just my fingers. I'm on my 4th jar of this stuff.
I used As I Am CoWash last night and it is amazing! It was very gentle on my hair and very moisturizing! It made my hair very soft and had my curls popping like crazy! It added moisture to my hair. It also made detangling a breeze. When I was done co-washing, my hair felt cleaner than when I shampoo! There was no product buildup! I wasn't to much a fan of co-washing but this product has made me one. I will use this twice a week in between washes. It is now a staple of mine!
I have very dry 2b hair (The dryness is due to Sjogren's Syndrome). I contemplated trying WEN, but have not because it contains silicones which eventually leave build up and dry out my hair even more. My hair has also always been very snarly, frizzy and difficult to style which I understand is pretty common for 2b hair. All I had to do was use the As I Am co-wash and some Kinky Curly Knot Today and my hair was so easy to comb through. Further, I did not have to put anything else in my hair to tame the frizz. It came out nice and smooth. Usually, when I shampoo, I have to use two to three different conditioners in order to combat the dryness and tangles (one for all of my hair, another for the dry ends, and a third to detangle). This cut my shower time in half. It's amazing.
My hair is a mix of 3C/4A hair (sorry I did a mistake making my profile). I got fine strands but high density + high porosity. This product is an amazing CoWash. It is very gentle and does what it says. My hair and scalp are clean. It leaves my hair super soft, detangled and it smells very good. MY NEW STAPLE !
I absolutely love this cowash. It leaves my hair very soft and moisturized and I do not have any problems with how it smells. It's a great product for a great price.
I wish this was sold in a smaller size. It was a little too stripping for me. I think I will add some oil to it before I use it again.
My hair is a mixture of 2b and 2c. It is mostly fine but I have a lot of it. My scalp needs extra cleansing in order for me to get volume but most shampoos that are successful cleansing my scalp enough tend to dry out my ends even if they are sulfate free. I decided to try this cleansing co-wash even though most reviews for this are for folks with type 3 and 4 hair. I tried it out this weekend and I was amazed. This product got all the buildup out of my hair and my scalp is clean yet my hair is so soft and shiny! I have tons of volume yet soft loose curls. I used this with the Curl Junkie Coconut Argan Oil conditioner afterward then applied a mixture of Milk and Honey Detangle Pudding mixed with a bit of Curl Junkie Pattern Pusha Gel then scrunched and diffused dried my hair. I am having a great hair day even though the dew point is only 33%! <3. I think I will make this my staple.
In my opinion the is the best co-wash on the market. It has amazing slip and cleansing properties. My hair doesn't feel stripped after I use this product.
I really love it. It works great on my hair. My scalp used to itch when finishing co washing my hair. I read that I stay have product buildup. After the coconut co wash my hair was clean and i detangled. Awesome
This stuff is so good! My hair doesn't feel stripped and it cleans very well. Definitely worth the money.
This was awful for my hair. I wonder why it works so well for others and so badly for a few. This stripped my hair, acted more like a clarifier (which I don't need or use) and left my hair in a knotted mess. I heard such good things about this so I thought I would try it and it has a good price point. I have hightly porous, dry, coily hair (combo 3c/4a) with color highlights. Tresemme Naturals and Kinky Kurly Knot Today work for me. I will finish this up but I won't buy it again. Actually I may just toss it because it took me 5 hours to detangle my hair which is about 7-10 inches long. This might work better for those who use ingredients on their hair that might require a clairfier. I don't use silicones, very little to no oil, or anything with parabens in it.
Oh yea this stuff is AWESOME! As soon as it's applied and you start scrubbing your scalp it instantly softens your hair and cleanses it beautifully. It's good enough to use throughout your hair but I still followed up with a conditioner afterwords. Best stuff EVER
Absolutely loved this product!!! It was my first time using it. Loved the smell. It was very moisturizing. Totally recommend this!!
This is the most amazing product I have ever used! I will never use shampoo again! It has great slip, doesnt weigh down my hair, and it is SO SOFT! I have 3b/3c hair and it is very hard to find products that really work well with my hair but this one is the cream of the crop!
I absolutely LOVE this product. I'm almost done with the transitioning stage, and this co-wash really feels good for my hair. My hair becomes soft, and it smells really good. I don't have any problems with tangling or knots, either.
I love this product. It has a great smell and it made my hair feel wonderful. I would recommend this product to everyone.
gets my hair clean with out stripping a lil messy to deal with but it adds moisture to my 4b/4c high porosity hair will definitly buy again and i love the smell and the price!
I used this when I was relaxed, and it is AWSOME!!! Back then it made my hair smelling good and soft, is great as a detangler and it doesn't have sulfates, silicones and all that bad stuff. Recommend it!!
This is the best cleansing conditioner hands down. maybe all the other products was just taking time to work with my 3c/4a hair type. For the first time my hair was easy to comb through and felt so soft. I parted my hair in four sections and worked each section in massage motion. I love it, it works well for me
did it cleanse yes did it leave moisture not really, was i able to detangle, a lil bit..would i buy again nope...a lil bit goes a long way but i had to use other conditioner to gain back that or give it that moisture boost...i give it 2 stars because it feels like a normal store bought shampoo..i'll use up the rest or maybe add grapessed oil to it..i dont know
I have 3a/3b curls. Within the last 6 months I have switched to using sulfate, paraben, and silicone free products. I have noticed a dramatic difference in the health of my curls. After reading the reviews on this product I wanted to try it out. Overall, I think it is a good product. It smells super good. I like that it lathers a little. On the days I really want to cleanse my hair it does the job and does not leave my hair feeling stripped of moisture.
After reading reviews on this product, I decided to give it a try. I saw mostly great reviews, but I also saw a couple of reviews saying that it made their hair tangled, knotted, dry, and straw-like...and of course, it did just that to my hair. It was such a hassle getting the knots out and moisturizing it after co-washing with this product. On top of all that, this didn't cleanse my hair at ALL! There was still a bunch of build up in my hair. I will not be repurchasing this product. It may work for others or other hair types, but just not mine. Try at your own risk!
I do not use many gels or products containing silicone, so 9 times out of 10 my hair does not need to be clarified. This cowash not only gives my hair the perfect amount of cleansing, it helps it retain so much moisture after each use. Plus it smells great. 16oz of goodness for that price is unbeatable.
This is my go to Co-Wash. I love the smell and it mixes well with my SM conditioner and stylers (delivery wise and scent wise). It also lasts me a long time for $8 something at Sally's. I just can't beat it. If you use it primarily on your scalp I couldn't imagine how long it would last! Great stuff.
I absolutely LOVEEEEEE this product. I was one to say "I would never stop using shampoo" until i crossed paths with this product, I love how rich it is, I can detangle my hair with no problem while the product is in my hair. It leaves my hair feeling smooth and moisturized. The price is also a plus and I can now find it pretty much find it in every beauty supply store around my neighborhood. Best co-wash by far.
My hair is a mixture of 3c/4a. I use this when I wanna refresh a style but don't have the time to properly treat and wash. The first time i used it it really moisturized my hair, but did not cleanse anything. It made my curls pop,bounce,shine,and for the most part defined, but my scalp still had build up and all the other stuff(but that may because i have very mild psoriasis and I have to really wash my scalp). I love the consistency because its nice and light and won't weigh your hair down. Probably won't buy again but I feel that it would work better for others than me because of my condition.
This conditioner did nothing but tangle up my hair!!! It was a mess getting the knots out!! I was under the impression that it would be an ideal product for cowashes.. Boy was I wrong!! If you must buy this product I advise you use it like a shampoo but I suggest you save your money and purchase something else..
Sorry this product left my hair tangled and "dread" locked. I had to go back and shampoo with another product and re-condition my hair just to comb it. No good for me.
Liked it, didn't love it. It is very light, doesn't strip the hair and the fragrance is pleasant.
i love this product. it seems to do a good job of cleansing my hair without leaving it tangled and dry. so far, i have had very good luck with the as i am products.
This was my first experience with co-wash vs shampoo. This co-wash is very fragrant, gentle and affordable. It did a decent job cleansing my curls, although it didn't wow me it was a great introduction into the no-poo method.
Hair stats: transitioning, MBL, 4Aish, low porosity, protein and AVJ sensitive This stuff is amazing! Being a transitioner with very thick hair, I need all the help I can get on wash days. I have never been a huge cowasher because I always hated how my hair and scalp felt after the process was over. I now know that it is because I didn't have the RIGHT cowash conditioner...until I found this one. It instantly melts into my NG and texlaxed hair and makes detangling a breeze. One thing that I have found is that you cannot let it sit for too long or it will over-cleanse your hair and make it stripped feeling. I leave it on for no more than 5 minutes from application to rinse.
My hair is actually 3c and 4a (3c in back and on sides, 4a in the crown) I bought 3 of these thinking they were something I could use. This is a definite NO product for me. There is almost no slip and the coconut wash acts like a clarifier, my hair feels really stripped and dry even while I am still trying to rinse it out. I have to use a lot of moisturizers and conditioners after dealing with this. I have said it before but it bears repeating: no matter what hair type you have proceed with caution, so many things determine if a product works well for each person including the type of water you wash your hair with as well as your genetics. I have very hard water and the net result is a very drying, non luxuriant, clarifying--flat, lotion--that leaves both my hair and my hands wishing it was something MORE.
Love love love! Can't get enough. It softens and moisturizers my hair like crazy. Permanent staple in my natural hair journey.
I believe that I am a 3c-4a hair type with a fine texture to it & upon my first use I feel instantly in love with this product. It is a thick conditioning creme which left my hair feeling really cleanse, there was a slight queak to it and the slip of this product was extraordinary! My hair was left feeling soft and detangling was a cinch. I have since purchased another jar of this product & will continue to use this product in my regime.
3a-3b. Fab, fab, fab for higher dews. Smells great. Lathers! Rinsed out well with plenty of water, hair felt moisturized. Still needed a follow-up product with slip, but could skip a leave-in due to great moisture retention. Great clumps that day, in higher dews, without frizz.
My Hair loves the coconut co-wash. This is my HG. I follow it up with the As I Am leave in condish, I have been using four of the As I Am products for about 4 weeks and my hair is looking its best since I went natural 7 months ago. It was dry, frizzy, and breaking at the crown. I was getting ready to put it in box braids to give it a rest then started using As I Am. My roller sets are coming out so pretty and curly.
Love this product! I used this in place of my shampoo and I loved how it cleansed my scalp and conditioned. I could also detangle from the slip it gives. The smell is amazing and is a creamy goo-y consistency. The only downside is it's in a tub and it should be in a pump conditioner bottle.
I have a 3c hair type and heard great things about this product, so I decided to go for it and see how it would work for me. It was awesome. The smell was like a fresh pina' colada. I couldn't stop smelling it when I cracked the lid. This made me even more excited to wash my hair. The consistancy is prefect for a cowash. Not to thick and not to thin, but just right. It had good slip and actually cleaned my hair without leaving it dry and brittle. The feel of my hair after washing was nice and soft and the smell it left on my hair was pleasent not strong at all. This is by far one of my favorite cowash products. My hair loves this stuff. If you're reading this trying to made a decision on if you should try it. Yes, It's definitely worth trying and it won't break the bank either. I gave it 4 curls out of 5 because of the packing. I would have given it 5 curls if it was in a plastic bottle instead of the plastic jar.
This is the real deal! I looooooovvvvveee this cowash!! It gently cleanses, but thoroughly cleanses my curlies. The slip is incrediable!!!! I use this in between my shampoos or when i just need to refresh my curlies and it gets the job done!
this is an awesome Co-wash for inbetween wash days. This product was my best friend almost every other day during my TWA stage. Now that my hair has gorwn out i will ususally co-wash with this mid week. The smell is awesome and the ingredients in this product are beneficial for healthy hair growth. This product has major slip for easy detangling as well.
I really like this product. The only part I would change is the alcohol content. I feel this is a great enough product not to have alcohol in it. Alcohol is to strong for our hair its very drying and overall damaging. Thank you for your consideration. :)
I love this stuff! One jar has lasted me over four months. Small amount works well to get clean hair. It has great slip to detangle during cleansing. Here is my product review on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckkTWUqSHR4&list=PLE986BE8BA1BC0063&index=9
LOVE LOVE THIS CO-WASH. CLEANS MY HAIR REALLY GOOD AND I DON'T KNOW IF IT MOISTURIZES REAL WELL BUT IT DOESN'T TANGLE MY HAIR OR CAUSE IT TO CLUMP UP IN DRY TANGLES LIKE SOME SHAMPOOS DO. I ALWAYS MAKE SURE I KEEP THIS IN MY HG. IT PLAYS REALLY WELL WITH OTHER PRODUCTS ALSO NOT JUST THE AS I AM LINE.
I really enjoy how clean and conditioned my hair is after I use this, and it smells really good. I don't like the jar because it can be challenging to scoop it out in the shower. I'd prefer a pump. Another complaint I have is that it seems to make my hair a little more fragile when detangling which is odd because I didn't find protein in the ingredients. Maybe my hair doesn't want to be co-washed? But I do like this and I want to keep it in my regimen.
Great product! Well worth the price. Only draw back is that I could not detangle my thick hair with the product ad the instructions describe. It didn't dry ny hair out, but it definitely didn't moisturize it very well either. It's a good cleanser though...just don't rely on it without conditioning after.
This stuff is awesome. I used it for the first time today and it has added the right amount of moister to my hair. I love how my hair feels, it feels clean and also moisturized perfectly. And for only $8 this this will be my go to cleanser!
I didn't really think much of this product, it was okay but I would not buy it again. rather use a cheapo condition to co-wash, that has tons of slip.
This has been, and shall continue to be, my go-to hair cleansing product for my 4C hair. Like others have said, it cleanses well without stripping, and the smell is nice without being overpowering.
This here is officially one of my staples. I love it!!! It smells delicious and leaves my hair clean and soft!
Love love love this stuff!!! It defiantly cleans my hair, scalp and moisturizes it so much. Defiantly gonna be my stapple. Bye bye shampoo lol.
I just started using this and it does seem to clean really well and leaves my hair very soft. It doesn't detangle well though and using it 2 times in a row seemed to leave my hair slightly dry. I think it will be good for using once a week or so, but not every time I wash. The smell was not as strong coconut as I was expecting, but it's an okay smell anyway. All in all, an okay conditioner but it just won't be the holy grail that I was hoping it would be.
I absolutely love this product and I will definitely continue to buy it. It smells great and leaves my hair clean and feeling soft.
I've used this product before, but I decided to order again recently. Always liked the smell. Great price. Accessible not only online but in many stores when I'm running low and need to replace. Is it solely responsible for softening my hair?? Probably not, but it gets the job done.... My hair is super duper thick and easily dries up so I wasn't expecting "miracle moisture" from just using this alone. It cowashes my hair without stripping it of oils as a sulfate shampoo would ( I do pre wash coating with pure coconut oil and let it sit in my hair for an hour anyway just in case.) It is less sudsy than traditional shampoo, detangling isn't a headache, and my hair feels clean. My other products ( 100% jojoba oil and moisturizing butter of choice) take care of everything else. For the price, it's definately worth the buy and will be kept in my hair care regimen for a while.
This is really good stuff. Leaves the scalp and hair moist and not striped, but clean and conditioned well. Awesome price (Almost too god to be true).
I absolutely LOVE the As I AM Coconut CoWash. It smells wonderful, not overbearing but lightly scented. Not very thick but it glides on real smooth. I think I got pretty good slippage and my scalp felt really good. My hair felt really clean and moisturized. This is a very good product. I went and got another one to use for my daughters' hair as well.I give this 5 Curls out of 5 Curls.
Absolutely love this product, it is the best co-wash cleansing conditioner I’ve used with great slip, I will most defiantly repurchase this product and it have become a staple for me.
Love, Love, Love this Co-wash! Love everything about it, it smells heavenly and is very moisturizing. Excellent slip and it cleans the hair throughly. The creamy texture is very nice, and my hair detangled with the greatest of ease. A must try!
This is an excellent co-wash! My hair feels so moisturized after using this product. Relatively inexpensive, will purchase again!
This is a really nice Co-Wash! My hair does not feel stripped, and it leaves my hair feeling clean, soft, and moisturized. Will purchase again!
love this co-wash!! it makes my scalp and roots feel so so soft, moisturized, and cleansed. and the coconut smell is delicious! for $8, this product will definitely become a staple in my hair routine!
I like As I Am products, and this is one of my favorites! My hair feels so nice after I finish the rinsing, and there is no frizz or "pyramid" when my hair dries. I do have to use a different shampoo after using this product twice as my hair at the nape of my neck starts to feel a little greasy. I may try using a vinegar rinse to make the hair more pH balanced, that may help.
Hello curlies, This is a fabulous co washer, It gets the job done, leaves my hair feeling both cleansed and moisturized. Not leaving it feeling dry and stripped. Lets not forget the great price. This is now a staple in my regimen.
Hair type: mixed, 3C/4A. I like the As I Am line very much, and the CoWash is the best of them. My hair feels clean and moisturized. I wouldn't say it was all that "light" though, and you have to use a decent amount of it. Thus my 4-star rating. But after trying other products, I definitely missed this CoWash, and it's my go-to product now.
I was disappointed in the performance of this product on my hair. I heard rave reviews about this product, even 1 of my good friends claimed it worked for her tightly curly 4 hair (similar to mine). It smells like coconut and is the consistency of thick conditioner, but yet it spreads easily for easy and quick product application. The price is definitely a bargain, but $ doesn't matter to me if it doesn't work in my hair. All in all, I had high hopes for this product line, but I have had less than optimal results with the 3 products I have tried so far (Coconut cowash, clarifying shampoo, cocoshea spray). I really think this brand of hair products is not meant for my hair makeup, personally. No worries, my holy grail is Blended Beauty soy cream shampoo (5 stars)! Disclaimer: cowashes/cleansing conditioners do not work for my hair. I heavily apply styling products to keep my hair nice and presentable for 4-6 days before my next washing. Moreover, I have tried V05 (2 stars), Curls cleaner (3 stars), and Wen (2 stars) just to name a few.
Very moistering for my very dry bleach blond 2b-3a type hair, my hair is quite fine. But I keep wondering if it's getting clean enough, my hair is much softer now then it was before using this product, but perhaps will only use this one time, to get me through the dry phase. Still strongly recommend for dry processed hair :)
I've been using this product every 2 weeks or so for some time now..... I can easily say it is one of my top 5 must have FAVORITES. I am big on scents, and this product smells like heaven. It smells clean and fresh with the perfect amount of coconut! I put so many different products in my crazy long frizzy curly hair, and this cowash takes out any leftover gunk and residue. Even with stripping your hair of all excess product, it is still extremely moisturizing and I feel ok not conditioning afterwards. It does not dry out my scalp like I have experienced with other products. Its pretty much just amazing! Definitely a product I will use forever!
I'm giving this four stars just because it does not detangle my hair. It doesn't tangle it though, which is great because my hair is thin and tangles very easily :(. BUT maybe it will detangle for you, hardly anything detangles my hair, not even Kinky Curly Knot Today. The smell is good and I can get little whiffs of it a little while after. The first time I used it I had just let Jamaican Black Castor Oil sit in my hair with heat and I decided to use this to wash it out. That was a bad idea. Probably because it's an oil and I don't think this product is meant to remove that much fresh, thick oil. So I blame myself for that. However, I did not put any conditioner in after I used this product but my hair felt like I had. My curls were defined (this only happens when I use the Tresseme Naturals Volumizing Conditioner and leave in like a gallon of it). I was so happy! Today I decided to try it normally (no pre-oil treatment) and it was great. Still no detangle but my hair felt better. I put in maybe a tablespoon of Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle after and my hair felt ridiculously great. I always need A TON of conditioner to feel like my hair is moisturized, not anymore!!
I love this product! It smells great!! it makes my hair soft. The only disadvantage is it's in a jar. An i want something i can grab an just pour some into my hands. but overall works good on my dry hair (:
So after using this for a while now and trying other alternatives I finally feel comfortable enough to review this product. I have tried cowashing for YEARS even before I went natural and it never exactly worked for me so I gave up. After seeing pretty positive reviews on here and from a well known youtuber I decided to try this product out and am so happy I did! This product is AMAZING it gets all that gunky product out of my hair while keeping the natural moisture in my hair balanced and my strands happy it even defines my curls surprisingly. enough. Honestly the best hair purchase I've made in a LONG time and is a dare I say it HG product for me. I would buy a gallon of this stuff with no regrets (for real can this be an option lol)
Just got turned on to co-washing. I am from the old school where I was always taught that you need to have a good shampoo and conditoner. Well all that has changed since I used this product. This product mad my hair so soft that I did not need to detangle at all. I stopped getting relaxers in 2010, but I have two hair types-straight & wavey in the front and my back in curly. So it is hard for me to determine exactly what products I should use. Now that I have this, I am on my way to having my hair be curly all over.
Love it! Leaves hair very soft and so easy to comb. Price is great! I highly recommend this product.
I found this stuff out from here. I decided to buy it and I absolutely love it! It detangles so well. I have been noticing that my hair doesn't tangle as bad anymore. Also, my curls have been so beautiful and shiny. I feel so much more confident with my curly hair bc of this stuff. Theres so much so I feel I am getting every penny worth. On amazon it was $9.99. I love it and highly recommend for people with extremely tangled hair!
I hate that you have to sit a jar in the shower and try to scoop out the product with one hand. It has a loose consistency so you have to be careful not to spill any in the shower. I like the smell, kinda reminded me of snow cream. After using the product I can say that it was pretty good. I haven't tried any other cowashes to compare this one to, but so far so good. I will be looking for other products that aren't in a jar. Other than that I would have gave it five stars. I love how easy it goes on and rinses clean.
I tried cowashing my low porosity hair with a cheap Suave conditioner but it left product buildup and my hair dry. I decided to give this a try. It serves it's purpose by getting rid of product buildup without stripping my hair completely. The only thing I don't like is there is no slip to detangle with. I have to follow up with Kinky Curly Knot today to detangle my hair with. I probably would not repurchase this.
I LOVE the As I Am line, and the Coconut CoWash is AWESOME! It conditions as it cleans. I gently renew my curls with this once a week, and my curls are defined and shiny. It took me a little time to get on the cowash bandwagon, and i tried several conditioners, and came across this one at Sally's. Very happy with the results, and love that it's reasonably priced.
I have 4b/4c hair. It dried my hair out both time I used it. I would not recommend the As I Am cowash. The two stars is for the nice container, not for the product. If you don't want dry hair, stay away from this product.
LOVE IT! This cowash makes my hair soft and clean. I never thought one thing could both moisturize and clean but this does it! It's all I use in the shower. I don't have to use conditioner after it. Also, like other people said it smells delicious! This is the first holy grail product I have ever found and I'm so glad I did, especially at such a great price! I have two backups in my room to ensure I'll never run out :-) I also use their Curling Jelly when I go out and Curl Clarity about every 2 weeks or so. This is the first line that my hair (2C/3A, fine, low porosity) actually likes! 5 stars for As I Am!
I love this stuff, very mosturizing and defines my curls with little effort. I am currently using CG method I left this in over nite with gel on top. Next morning I rewet my hair by spraying with water and shake. My hair was so defined and shiny. I give this product 10 stars!!!
This is my all time, number one, HG, never ever going to run out favorite. Unless they change the formula or go out of business (which I know they won't) this will be in my arsenal forever and ever! AMEN!!!!
This is a wonderful co-wash for those of us who don't want to stick around doing a co-wash first and then following with a more moisturizing conditioner. I think if your hair is dryer/coarser you may still have to follow up with a moisturizing conditioner, but I've found for my hair which is fairly healthy nowadays thanks to the CG method, this co-wash is enough. Just one step. I wash and massage my scalp to remove any traces of dirt or buildup, let the conditioner sit in my hair while I go about my other shower business, detangle, and then rinse it all out. That's it. Five minutes. My hair is easy to detangle, I have great slip, and did I mention that the smell of this stuff is wonderful? It's not heavy. it's just light and tropical and clean and yum. I get hungry just writing about it. My only gripe is the container. I sooo wish I came in a bottle with a pump rather than a jar. But I'll transfer it the next time I have a suitable container. I'm not gonna deduct a curl for packaging when the product itself is out of this world. Not to mention reasonably priced.
Omg I love this stuff! After I condition my hair with it my hair feels so moisturized and it makes my hair really curly. This is a great product at an amazing price, only $8.00!
I am a 4a-coily, Henna,Indigo, Amla head and have finally found the hair care line that nourishes my natural graying hair. Going on two years natural, I have used As I Am products for the last several months and the Coconut CoWash Cleansing Conditioner has proved to be a gentle and effective cleanser. I usually follow up with a combination Hydration Elation/hot oil 30 minute treatment and the results are very good. My hair looks and feels healthy and the hydration level improves with each hair care cycle.
This is a great cleaning conditioner. I have mostly 4A hair (my nape is 3C and the crown is 4B). I use this product as my mid-week cowash. It leaves my hair AND scalp very clean. I tend to experience flakiness or dry scalp when using cleansing conditioners and with this product I did not experience that. I love the ingredients of this product and will continue to use it. How I use: I section my hair into 6-8 parts. I soak my hair in the shower then finger detangle. After this, I apply the product to each section, 2-strand twist that section, move onto the next section and repeat. Then, wait for a few minutes, untwist each section and allow the water to run through the section in order to remove the product. Drawbacks: (1) Impractical container design - scooping out from a jar is cumbersome (counterargument: you'll probably get more bang for your buck by scooping). I am going to transfer the product to a different kind of container; and (2) I suspect that this product "relaxes" my curls - after a wash-n-go using this product, people asked me if I blew out my hair. I find this strange. Overall: This is a great co-wash product. It's moisturizing while being a great cleanser. Thumbs up!
WTH, just WTH is this crap. As I AM should be re-labeled Crap in a JAR! Just don't waste your money 4C's buy a really good conditioner to co-wash. I cheat and use a ton of Aubrey's Honeysuckle and a dime size amount of clarifying shampoo to get my hair really clean. I like the squeky clean feel. My hair is still super soft and moisturized without the icky scalp build up. Would I recommend??? NO
I saw this at Sally's & thought I'd give it a try. Can return if don't like. I LOVE this cowash! It leaves my hair soft & shiny. Just need to put it in a bottle. I hate jars in the shower & it's not thick. Not quite sure the reasoning behind having this in a jar in the 1st place? That's just my hang up which I can fix- the product itself is awesome & being able to get at Sally's just love it!
This is a great CoWash. I can detangle with it without any problem. Great Slip! Just remember to detangle at the wash step because the other products don't have any slip to them. A definite repurchase.
This cowash is AWESOME! It was my first time using a product actually labeled a cowash and I loved it. I use an applicator bottle to focus on my scalp because I heard this product can be stripping. I had no problems with stripping and I used my tangle wrangler to work this through my hair once I massaged it into each section of my scalp. Then I rinsed and retwisted my hair. It is a very runny liquid so the bottle really helps reduce waste. I have no clue why this is in a jar at all. But oh well. I found a solution to that and this 16oz jar will probably last me months.
Love it makes my curls so shinie and good shape smell really good and I can wash my hair every day simplify love it
I've been using this product for about 6 months and just love it, It is a great cowash, will continue to use and buy, this stuff loves my hair!!
I have struggled to find a good co-wash until now - this product has done wonders for my hair!! Try it!!
I will start off by saying I think I used toooo much, I slathered it all over my hair, massaged my scalp etc. It felt good but OMG when I got out of the shower my hair was DRY DRY DRYYY. Everyone with similar hair loves this product so I think maybe I should try it again to see what I did wrong but i'm terrified...If it doesn't work again it's going back to Sally's.
I wanna say I love, love, love this product. I used it back in the summer of 2012 and was hooked every since. I applied it in the shower, the only bad thing is there is no pump to this shampoo. I use it as a shampoo and it provides moisture and lots of slip. Then I apply conditioner, I used the As I Am, deep conditioner, it was not so great but I will try it again to make sure. After these steps my hair is soooo soft and fluffy.
Were my hair and scalp clean? Yes. Did I get great slip? Not exactly. Do I find this to be a great co-wash to use without a conditioner? Not really. It is possible if you are on a budget. I did use this product as my cleanser and as my conditioner. Detangling was not as easy as expected, but was done. After the second rinse my hair was not as soft or silky as I am used to it being. I did style my hair as usual and get great results. I have been spoiled by other cleansing conditioners that give me great slip,and butter soft hair before styling. Im not used to having to follow with a leave-in.
I really like this product. It loves my hair soft and clean without weighing it down, stripping it or leaving a coat. You get alot for our money. Try it!
I have 2b hair (was 3b until two pregnancies wiped a lot of the curl from my hair) and I've been trying everything I can to coax the curls back. My scalp is sensitive and my hair tended to get seriously greasy within two days, requiring washing every morning, which of course is hard on it. I decided to cowash, hoping that by not stripping the moisture from my hair the oil glands would stop working so hard. Cowashing has worked wonderfully. I've been using As I Am coconut cowash for months now and I can easily go three to four days between washings, and my hair still doesn't get as greasy as it used to in one day. I love the way it smells, too (I love coconut scents). I use a lot and work it in really good, rubbing every inch of my scalp clean with my fingers, then comb it in from scalp to tips, gently detangling (this stuff makes my hair smooth and easy to detangle), and rinse. Though I use a lot each time, I don't use it nearly as often, so that balances out. I tried Wen Sweet Almond Mint cleansing conditioner, too, but it didn't work as good for me , I didn't like the smell, and it was a LOT more expensive. This stuff washes clean and leaves my hair so soft. I add a little bit of As I Am Leave In Conditioner (especially on the tips and sides where frizz tends to form) and I get smooth hair that isn't weighed down (very important in trying to get the curl back). I LOVE this stuff!.
I am totally amazed with this product. My curls love it! It's never "too much" but it leaves my curls super bouncy and the shine..... wow! I used it with the curling jelly and that is it.... not another thing. Those two items, and I have beautiful curls!! The price is fantastic, too! Takes a little just a little and does so much! My new fav!!! Seriously.....give this one a try!
Love this product! Best conditioning co-wash I have used thus far. Lots of slip and gets my hair cleaner than other products I have tried. A detangling cleanser, it is revolutionary! Only downside is that it doesn't come in a pump.
Agh...not impressed at all with product. Won't buy again. I hated having to manually scoop it out of the jar and it just doesn't leave my hair soft. This is a NO for me.
Love this product! I think I have 4B hair and I use this every week. Love As I Am products....they are reasonably priced, do wonders for the hair, and now are at Walgreens too! Grrrreat!
Phenomenal product! I have been using this product for the past 5 months. I use it not only in my mid-week washes since I workout so much but also part of my deep conditioning routines on the weekend as well. I am able to detangle my 4a/4b hair with a wide tooth comb much easier than before. It smell wonderful and a little bit goes a long way. I love how it feels and makes my hair look after I wash. Highly recommend and will be using this product for a long time. So thankful I can find it in my neighborhood Walgreens and Sally Beauty supply stores. Here is my Hair regimen review including this product http://www.allthatmsjazz.com/2012/10/30writenow-my-natural-hair-regimen.html
It's not bad, but it doesn't do anything great for my hair either. Probably will not repurchase, as I like both Deva No Poo and CJ Daily Fix better. But the price on this made it worth a try! It works pretty well on my daughter's hair.
My hair loves the Coconut CoWash.......I LOVE ordering from CurlMart, this was my very first order....I will be ordering from the again. Why? They give really GOOD samples with your order. Plus, I live in Austin, TX and I was able to pick my order up when it was ready. I ordered on Friday and Monday I was able to go to CurlMart2Go and pick my order up. How COOL is that.
my hair really loves this product. I have 4a hair, and didn't think I could manage the texture until I found this product. My hair is soft and detangles very easily even before conditioning. This is my definite cowash product.
I LOVE this co-wash!!!!! It made my hair SO soft, smelled great and really did cleanse...but I did find because I have SO much hair and it's crazy thick, I have to use a shampoo (giovanni) first on my scalp then do a second wash with this product. the only draw back would be its a little too runny for me and its hard for me to get the product out of a jar - especially when I am washing my hair in the shower, water gets in and makes an already runny product way too thin. If they could just add a pump to the top, this would be awesome. Overall this is a great product especially for the price - I can go through a jar in two washes so I love that I am paying $8 vs. some of the competitors charging $30...
Love it! Cleans and does not strip or dry my hair. I can detangle with it as we'll. I love the coconut smell, does not linger on hair. Great ingredients. Wish it came in a squeeze bottle?
I use this on my weave and naturally hair, and it's the best . I will say if your hair is naturally soft, its better because my cousin has rough textured hair and she hates it.
This has to be the worst product ever for my cowash. It has no slip for my hair and if you think about it castor oil is used as a sealant not in my washing process. That explains why it my stands would stick together and the texture of it was not smooth combined with the water. I have a jar of this mess at home that i will never touch again. I attempted two times, but I'm officially canceling this one out. Nice fancy looking jar....horrible ingredient combination

I really liked this product..great slip and did just what it said it would do!!!! I gave it a 4 curls because it was not memorable! I actually purchased this product 2 months ago and it did not leave enough of an impression to go back! It is a great value, so I know that if I run short of a staple product I like, then I will purchase it then!
This product is great for cleansing! Leaves my hair feeling light and cleansed of dirt and product residue. Hence making my hair versatile and ready to soak in my next product! A must have in my opinion!
I received a sample kit from As I am last week and I was ecstatic to try this product. It indeed met my expectation and it exceeded it. The product smells like mangoes and Baby Magic. It smells soooo good! The consistency is thicker than normal conditioner but it slides on the hair very well and feels great working into the scalp. After rinsing the product out of my hair, my hair felt like it had a sealant on it, like a protective coat that was locking in the moisture. I don't know what that was about, but my hair loved it. I'm definitely throwing out all other conditioners I use for cowashing. This is my stand alone product for that purpose. I have 4a hair styled in a TWA since my big chop on 6/29/12.
This is the BEST Cowash conditioner I've ever used. A little goes a long way and it leave the hair soft and manageable to where detangling is a breeze. This product has become my staple.
This stuff is great...love this....I have dry color treated hair. And it restores moisture really well. Great for wash and gos too. This is my staple product.
I love this stuff. I am a runner and i sweat in my hair alot. This co wash leaves my hair so soft with lots of moisture. Its my staple product.
I have 4C hair type. I love this stuff. I am a runner and i sweat in my hair alot. This co wash leaves my hair so soft with lots of moisture. Its my staple product.
Fantastic when it comes to detangling hair during co-wash. I gave it 4curls only because my staple is another co-wash brand.
I love this co-wash, and so does my 4 year old daughter! We both have hair that gets so tangled so easily sometimes we have to cut out the balled-up snarls. My poor daughter absolutely dreads having her hair cleansed, and when she finally gets over the stress from the cleanse, I hate to have to go through the torture again by adding a conditioner. My daughter's scalp is sensitive, and she always cried when her hair was being washed and combed. We both dreaded "hair wash" day. When I wash my daughter's hair with Coconut Co-wash, it feels like silk in her coarse hair, and I don't need to use a detangler rinse afterwards. I can comb this co-wash through her hair without any resistance, and this rinses quickly and easily, so there's less risk of hair getting snarled up during the rinse. This co-wash is so smooth and easy, she barely seems to notice I'm washing her hair. As I Am Co-Wash winds up being more cost-effective than Ouidad's No Time for Tears and No More Knots, because it's a 2-in1. The coconut smells delicious, too!
I really wanted to love this product I was so excited about it but my hair hated it. I was excited to use it but the first time I tried it when I rinsed it out my hair was so dry and hair the second time it started to tangle as soon as I put it on. I have 4c hair but everytime I try something that many other 4c rave about my hair hates it, and everything other 4c hate my hair ends up loving it. IDK my hair is just weird. I had to return it.
I L-O-V-E this product! My daughter and I did the BIG chop a year ago, and tried other products - but just let me say, I was not a fan of co-washing, I thought I needed the suds for a clean hair & scalp. But somehow my daughter convinced me to incorporate co-washing in my hair regimen and let me tell you… I have never looked back since! I now shampoo once a month; we have 4b, c type hair and this has done miracles for us! Not to mention the smell –OMG heavenly :D
I am a former Wen user with long, fine hair. This product is very much like Wen, only a fraction of the price. I've found that with either cleansing conditioner, you have to use enough product in order for it to work correctly. So many of us that are used to conventional shampoo tend to use a small amount - not so with these products. You need to wet your hair and apply a generous amount and massage it in. Comb it through with a wide-tooth comb and leave it on for a few minutes. Then re-wet your hair and massage again. THEN rinse thoroughly. You'll find that it not only cleans, but leaves all but the driest of hair nicely conditioned. If you need extra conditioning (I do in the winter!), apply As I Am leave-in conditioner.
Loved the smell and was excited to try this new cowash, since I've been a WEN girl for a few yrs but the product is pricey. Unfortunately this product left my 3a/b hair very dry and unmanageable. I'm use to running my fingers thur to detangle and was unable to do so I tried it a few times to make sure I didn't get a different result, but it was Austin the same
I'm new to co-washing my hair, and just did a BC mid-august, so I don't have a lot of experience with conditioners at this point. I also don't have a whole lot of hair to detangle in the shower. However, I am a big fan of this conditioner already as it smells fantastic (I'm always a fan of coconut) and it leaves my hair feeling clean but not squeaky. As a beginner to the CG method, this is an excellent place to start!
I'm new to co washing my hair, but this conditioner a) smells really good - I'm always a fan of coconut and b) actually leaves my hair feeling very clean without feeling stripped of moisture. I just did a BC in mid-August to get a handle on wearing my natural curls, so I don't have a lot of hair to worry about de-tangling at this point. This is good stuff!

I LOVE this product!! I've finally found a staple product. It makes my hair super soft, and leaves it soft after I rinse it out. This will forever be in my line up.
It gave me knots and tangles. I didn't like the smell. It dried my hair out. It's hard to rinse out.
I did not like this at all. I went to Sally's because it was on sale for 6 dollars. It was a Bad choice. It smelled like coconut and chemicals and it looked almost like a light tan. It was considerably light. I placed it on my hair in the shower after I had washed it and it was literally sitting on my hair. It is hard to rinse out, it dried my hair out, and it gave me a whole mess of tangles.
I did not like this conditioner at all. I went to Sally's and was reccomended to try this product but when I looked at the ingredients I had doubts. I decided to try it because it was on sale for 6 dollars. Bad choice. When I opened the jar it was a turn off from the start. It smelled like coconut and chemicals and it looked almost like a light tan. When I touched it, it was considerably light. I placed it on my hair in the shower after I had washed it and it was literally sitting on my hair. It is hard to rinse out, it dried my hair out, and it gave me a whole mess of tangles. Not a good product for kinky hair in my opinion.

I love the smell, it makes my hair feel amazing. I also use it to detangle, works great!! I'm on my second jar, will continue to be part of my rountine.
this product is awesome. i just recently did the big chop (I already had my natural but it was getting severely damaged and breaking just WAY too much) and i've never had my hair so soft and my curls so defined!!! Moisturized beyond belief!!!! I'm of Dominican descent and i have the curly/coily type hair. i thought i couldn't ever get my hair to loosen or feel soft after a wash or co-wash but this product has changed my mind!!! and ya can't beat the price!!!
I love this product. My hair detangles easily and it smells really good. I look forward to cleansing now that I have this.
I really like this product it leaves my hair feeling soft n clean w/o stripping it. I use this once a week n i really like it. I like the fact that i can it get at Sally's n not pay shipping n the best part is it is not over PRICED ! To me this is way better than the leave in.
I'm in love with this line. For the price, it does as much if not more than any other product I've used. The Cleasing Conditioner smells great and leaves my hair as soft as any conditioner as well as clean. I started with the daily moisturizer & then started with the co-wash. After about 2-3 months, I've started using the leave in conditioner. I was previously using kinky curly and then "nothing but" which I didn't care for at all. I'm using more and more of the AS I Am line every month. My hair and scalp tend to be very dry, but not with these products.
I love me some ASIAM! Child this product did what it said it would do and more!! I as many reviewers had the itchy scalp going on and I used this baby like a shampoo and no more itchiness :D plus a little goes a long way..unfortunately I am finding that out when I am done with the product and not in the beginning, but I will definitely repurchase! Anything with coconut oil gets a thumbs up (unless it is full of unnatural ingredients)!
The smell- awesome. Makes me hungry. The amount you get in a jar- also awesome. I've had this for months, accidentally spilled about half of it and STILL have a bunch left. It goes a long way. Wait. The jar's got to go, though. Can they bottle or tube it? Price- right. Did it do its job? I'd say so. My hair feels super clean after I use this product , but so much it feels stripped, so that's great. It gives great slip and to consistency is great, nice and thick, not soupy and getting all over the place. Love, love, love it!
I give it a 4 and a half actually i love the smell... it is inbetween like coconut and tangerine It is excellent for washing and go'ing to school :) I have dry hair so it is an excellent hit for the morning I got this at SallysBeauty store and i lovve this product but I am still testing different hair products that I love But this product is good to be honest (:
BOMB.COM!!!! I Love this stuff. it cleanse my hair (without stripping it), it smells Soooo GOOD, and it makes my 4b curls POP!!! Add the As I Am Leave-in conditioner and you have a nice Wash &Go. I would defintenly repurchase!!!!
It loses a point because it irritates my skin, but it gives a nice balance of clean- it clears the build-up without stripping my natural oils. I do have to condition after, but I usually do after any cleansing conditioner. Not bad for the price.
Love it!! Gets my hair clean Check my review on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQpnJCPAy6U&feature=channel&list=UL
Absolutely loved this cowash conditioner the only thing I don't like is the fact that it's in a jar. It left my hair clean, not stripped or dry and it was easy to detangle with.
I really love this conditioner cowash because it has slip and the ingredients aren't too bad either also if Im not using this then I'm using my jessicurl cleansing cream>>> I stocked up on these!
Gives great slip, great price. Follow the directions. I have 4a type fine hair. Before adding this product I soak with water, rosemary and veggie glycerin and then apply the product. My curls are moisturized, they bounce and are very full.
Smells good. Consistency is a little thin, creamy yet it does sud up a bit. Does the job as far as removing product buildup if you don't want to use shampoo. Lots of slip. -1star because you do need to put in another conditioner after you rinse this one out or else your hair will be a little dry. Also I wish it were in a bottle and not a jar, or maybe a larger sized jar; I bought 3 jars which is kind of annoying.
This product really surprised me. For one, it provided more moisture than I expected from a cleansing condish. The fragrance was a little odd and not a fav, and my curls behaved as if it built up after 4-5 days use in a row and required a traditional poo. But for days 1-3, a solid choice.

I enjoy this product. I mean...The price is rite, it smells great and it gets the job DONE. Its easy to spread, its easy to move and comb thru (if you choose to) and it keep the moisture locked in! What more can u ask for. This a staple product for me AND its sold in stores! (Sally's and Walgreens) Im located in Chicago, IL so here at least.
Was not feeling this at all! The first time I used it my hair felt no softer or moisturized. I thought it would be fair to give it a second chance which I did and I couldn't even get the comb through my hair! My hair just felt extra dry. So I have to say that I will not be trying this anymore. It was not a moisturizing product for my 4A/4B hair.
Darlin' honeychild lol....THIS STUFF RIGHT HERE??? OMG!!! I decided on impulse to try it and I'm glad I did. First off : 16oz for $8? - can't beat it. I love the fact that its water based so its not sticky or tacky feeling, the smell is very pleasant but not overpowering. Follow the directions (trust me)! I stuck my head under the shower and just let my hair get wet for 2-3 minutes before cowash, then used the product like you would a shampoo. And I rinsed it thoroughly out of my hair. One problem I had been having was itchy scalp - THIS STUFF CURED IT!! My hair felt soft, curls are defined. Definitely will be a staple in my regimen!!! Super happy :D
This is a good conditioner...I love the smell, it detangles with ease in the shower, and leaves my hair soft and moisturized...it wasn't great but it wasn't the worst either...will I use/buy this again? Yes because I like switching products here and there lol
I really like this product. I bought it at my local sally's for about $10 bucks here in Puerto Rico. It's 16 oz which is the amount of my old sulfate free shampoo and conditioner combined, and for a fraction of the price! It smells really nice and like coconut. It feels like what it is, washing your hair with conditioner, but my hair felt squeaky clean, but not rough like it would feel with a sulfate product. Really, all you need is the pressure from the water in the shower and to gently massage the product to your scalp. Just distribute it to the rest of your hair with help from the water and your fingers (I don't use combs, my fingers are sufficient). The only reason why I don't give it a 5 is because it doesn't leave me an obnoxious slip, which I strangely love. Jaja
I'm 1 yr natural and after being a total product junkie i have finally found a staple product. I LOVE this product, it leaves my hair soft,shiny but most of all it has my curls poppin.
This product has become a staple product of mine. It has great slip, cleans my hair well for cowashing, and doesn't leave my hair feeling stripped. I have to use up my other conditioners so I can stick to this one!
I liked the slip of the CoWash while it was in my hair but when rinsed out my hair felt drier and a little stripped. However, it does remove product buildup.
My hair is not as conditioned as I thought it would be and the slip is not that great so thats why I give it two stars the smell is not bad though.
I used this on my 4a fine hair and i really liked it... I co washed with it, applied a small amount of shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie and wore a wash and go and it was nice, light, and soft. Later I did a twist out with olive oil water and lock and gro by mango and lime... My hair coiled right up. Im good to go for the weekend...
I love this product. It smells wonderful, cleans, has good slip, and above all I can use it whenever I want to. I just wish it came in a bottle or with a pump. I can live with the jar because it is priced good too. This is a staple for me because cowashing with regular conditioners was tricky for me. I say give it a try.
Loved the price especially for how much your getting of the product. My hair felt clean-ish but I think I can find something better.
On my hair, this product is less of a conditioner and more of a cleansing/shampoo product. I definitely needed another conditioner after using this one.
I was a little hesitant to try this. I was afraid it would be too heavy for my fine hair. Well, it was awesome. Lots of moisture but not so much that my hair was unhappy. It was cleansing and moisturizing at the same time. Great surprise!
This is pretty good for the price. I'm not a big fan or co-washing because my scalp can't handle it (I get major itches and acne along my hairline), but this I can deal with. It rinsed out clean and left my hair feeling soft. I give it 3 stars because in no way can it replace my lathering sulfate free poo, but it can work as a nice compliment.
I have 3c - 4c hair being that I'm a mixture of everything and this has been the BEST CoWash I have ever used. I moistured my hair so good that I wasn't sure if I rinsed it out or not. My hair feels like silk and the smell is refreshing! :) This is one of my top 5 favorites.
Cleans very well but my hair is very very dry and I did not see much difference on the moisturizing part.
The only thing I liked about this product was the yummy coconut smell and besides that I was not impressed. This product did clean my hair but it was not left soft and moisturized. I'm glad my usage was only a sample because I would have been highly upset if I paid full price. I think for now I'll continuing sticking to my $3.00 bottles of Trader Joe's Nourish Spa and TJ Tea tree shingle.
Didn't like this as well as their curl clarity and cleansing pudding. As for as cleaning the hair the co-wash is just ok, it got the job done but so do cheaper products. I love the citrus smell.
This stuff left my hair feeling nice and soft and moisturized, I ended up sealing after rinsing the stuff off because no other product was necessary after my wash! This is definitely worth the price!
I have been using wen for years but is way to expensive, i decided to give this brand a try and OMG this product is amazing and affordable. I even get better results, my hair is 100x more shiney and much more softer. I am Hispanic with type 3a hair. All you wen ladies out there please give this a try!
This product is GREAT! Didn't expect my hair to feel as soft and moisturized as it did. Very happy.
I have used this about four times and so far so good. It smells great and my hair looks great. What I really like is the price; $8 for 16 ounces. Seems too good to be true! Matter of fact shipping was more for this than the product! The only bad thing was the Methosolin.... whatever. I've heard good and bad about it, but like I said, you can't beat the price and my hair looks good.
This stuff is amazing and does what it says, I love this for a daily wash that's not harsh. I swim and color my hair so washing with harsh shampoos is not an option for me. I wish it gave some sudsing though, still love it in spite of that!
This is the most moisturizing co-wash I've tried so far. My hair felt extremely soft while the product was in and even after I rinsed (which is the true test). It also provided amazing slip, particularly in my crown area which is 4a. Good product so far.
I really liked this product! It was perfect for co-washes (as the name suggests). I typically feel like coconut is an overwhelming smell but this conditioner was light and pleasant. I smelled more citrus and less coconut, which I loved! It left my hair so moisturized, I was almost tempted to leave it in my hair all day.
