I got the AS I AM Coconut Cowash conditioner during the November window;
It comes in a 16oz container and claims to 'gently remove residue including all of the things used to style your coils...contains a special blend of natural ingredients including saw palmetto and phytosterols that help promote healthy hair growth from the follicular level.'
Ingredients listed(the good stuff); water, extracts-coconut, tangerine, castor oil, castor seed oil, coconut oil.
I heard good things about this product and decided I have to try it for myself. So I tried it out today as part of my weekend treat and I made sure I tried it all by itself so I could have an honest review of the product.
The consisitency is thick like a relaxer but not so thick that applying it is a chore;
I rebelled and didnt wet my hair as the directions stated because dry hair absorbs products better- (''AS I AM'' team get in the know!!)
It looked like I applied a relaxer;
I covered my hair with my shower cap for about an hour, the directions didnt say. Then I rinsed it out and did a two minute scalp massage with Roux Porosity control conditioner;
Then I let my hair air dry and let me tell you this product made my very puffy new growth SOFT!!
It has set my hair up for an easy week of styling and for that I love this product. I was a bit reluctant to buy the product because I felt it was not enough product compared to the price (the container is decieving, its just today I found out it holds 16oz of product made me happy). I also found that after my second use of this product, there's still a lot of it, it didnt even go half way-
A little of it goes a long way which is great!
I think this product will definitely be a staple in my deep conditioning/weekend treat section.
If you want me to bring in this product or any other product of your choice during this month's import window that closes on Monday the 7th, please send me an email@example.com and I will get back to you ASAP.

Oh remember I said I was going to start keeping a shed hair dairy? well today was wash day and this is the hair I shed;
Compared to last wash day;
As you can see the shedding this week was nothing comapred to last week! Shedding was crazy last week thanks to the fact that I straightened my hair, even with heat protectant, all the manipulation and detangling during straightening is just too much for my hair thats why I rarely use heat and advice ladies to rarely use heat- I have been at a salon and watched a stylist hide lumps of shed hair from a client as he detangled during straightening- so not worth it!!
Anyways, this week I plan to keep my hair in a simple bun, maybe a braid here and there but little or no combing all week long- yup! I have also ditched my brush, Jen from Justgrow already ditched her's and it seems to be working for her, I'll use my wide tooth comb to smooth out my hair and my old very soft tooth brush for my edges!
I hope this post helps those who have heard about this product as well as the other tips I talk about.
Thanks for stopping by and expect more tips to help you through the challenge!!
