As I Am Coconut CoWash Cleansing Conditioner Product Review
This is my first product review. If you have read my blog before you know that I’ve been natural for five years. I mainly follow the Curly Girl Method with the occasional shampoo. For my co-washes I usually use Tresemme Naturals or Suave Professionals Almond +Shea Butter Conditioner. I really like both of these conditioners. They are inexpensive and easy to find.
I had heard about and read about this line. My interest in it came about because of the mostly natural ingredients . So on to the review.
Price: $8.00 for 16oz
Where : I purchased mine from Sally’s. It can also be found at Walgreens. The As I Am website has a store locater or you can order directly from the site.
Product: The key ingredients are Tangerine, Coconut oil, Castor oil, Saw Palmetto and Phytosterols. Phytosterols are steroid compounds similar to cholesterol which occur in plants. That’s the short answer.
What I Think: Its o.k., just o.k. I really didn’t see a major difference in results between this product and the conditioners I usually use. It’s has a nice light smell that didn’t linger. I’m not sensitive to smell, so you may have a different opinion. It is a thick conditioner with a decent amount of slip. My hair felt good and clean, but nothing extraordinary.
What I Liked: The ease of availability and the ingredients. I didn’t have to use a lot. I was afraid that I would go through half the jar in the first use. This has happened before . I have a lot of hair.
What I Didn’t Like: The packaging. As you can see from the picture, the product comes in a jar. I used it in the shower. The problem I had was that water got into the jar. Now I could have replaced the lid every time, but who wants to do that. I did see a You Tube review where she applied the product all over and then rinsed it out. I will try this the next time. I personally would have preferred the product in a tube or a bottle with a pump.
Would I Buy Again: Honestly…maybe.
This was just my first impression of the product. I didn’t hate it. I may fall in love with it by time I’m done with the jar. I’ll let you know.
