There is nothing more relaxing than after a long day of work, coming home to a nice hot shower and giving your hair that nice luxurious lather it was daydreaming about all day. Yes, yes, yes, washing your hair everyday (in a hot shower) is a HUGE no, no, I get it, but isn’t getting a lavish lather the only way of cleaning those locks? NOPE! Enter CLEANSING CONDITIONER stage left!
Traditional shampoos contain detergents and harsh chemicals (usually known as sulfates) that strip away dirt and oils from your hair, and it is these chemicals that give you that wonderful lather that leaves you feeling squeaky clean. Although that clean feeling may seem natural, it is actually extremely harmful to your hair and scalp.
Cleansing conditioners have more of a lotion texture, low to no lather, and apply ample moisture to your hair. They gently remove impurities from your hair without stripping your hair of its natural oils.
Cleansing conditioners are not a new concept. If you’re a curly hair vixen, you probably have already heard of cleansing conditioners; they are also referred to co-washing and no-poo.
How to use: Apply your cleansing conditioner to your roots and gently massage, let it sit for a few minutes. Then work it from your roots to your ends, and rinse.
