To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The co wash actually works really well for my hair, I was a little nervous it was just going to turn my head into a grease ball, but it's actually perfect the only reason it's got 3 stars when it should be 5 is because I found it at winners for $10
El único pero que le pondría a este cowash es que hay que utilizar bastante para cubrir todo el cabello, pero todo lo demás es perfecto: consistencia, precio, aroma y resultados. Lo recomiendo mucho para cabello rizado.
I thought about deducting a star because when it arrived the pump was beyond destroyed, but... I have thick coarse hair and it's long. I have split ends, and fly away strands. It gets frizzy and totally unmanageable... I love this Cowash. I've always wanted to try WEN (mostly because the woman who plays Zevia on NCIS uses it and her hair transformation was mind blowing). I can't afford WEN and have tried A LOT of WEN "alternatives" without the results I was looking for. I've been a fan of coconut oil for my skin and even leave in treatments occasionally for my hair. I decided to try this on a whim and I love it! It leaves my hair bouncy, soft, manageable, my split ends are less noticeable and I've all but forgotten about the fly away strands, that used to annoy me everyday. My husband could tell the difference immediately, and my coworkers asked what I was using... most assuming it was something I put in after washing. Now with that being said I should also say, that I still have to use regular shampoo when my hair is dirtier then normal. I live in Nevada, it's summer time. We spend a lot of time at a salt lake, the river, and other lakes. On those day's this just doesn't cut through the grime. Also when I really do it up with product, I need to use regular shampoo to get it all out. But on most days I can use this and it performs wonderfully. It smells great, leaves my hair feeling and looking better then ever and I plan to purchase more as soon as I start getting low. I do use a light conditioner after washing with this. Something else l should mention... my daughter in law has thinner, naturally oily hair and she doesn't like this product at all. It leaves her hair limp and looking like she didn't wash it all and complained that it made her hair fall out. I'm wondering if it just works great for certain hair types. I don't know, but I do know that I love it, my hair loves it and I will continue to use it.
TL;DR #1 (for people who want a "main" cleanser): Best for coarse, dry hair as a main cleanser; not so great for fine hair TL;DR #2 (for people who already have a "main" cleanser AKA alternative use for this cleanser): Really great as a weekly mask-type cleanser to replenish oils and moisture (what I'm going to end up using this for)
Hair type: long (almost at my lower back), fine (0.04mm diameter per strand), straight, oily scalp
I've been attempting to move away from sulfates in my shampoos and silicones in my conditioners for the past year, so I thought I'd give cowashing a try. It worked really well the first month, as in I would have really soft and light hair the next day. However, by the next month (I wash once every two nights, and I go to the gym/sweat 6 times a week) I've found that even the day after washing (within 12 hours) my hair would be limp and greasy-looking. I've tried using conventional sulfate shampoo to remove buildup (I don't use hair products, but just thought I'd try it in case that was the case) once a week, but I think my hair has just gotten used to the hydrating properties in this conditioner because during the next cowash it would look greasy again. I think this would be a great "main" cleanser for people with thicker/coarser/drier hair, but not so much for finer hair. I'm still going to keep it, in the event that my hair becomes more brittle/dry, this cleanser will be a great gentle cleaner that brings moisture back into my hair, but I won't be using it for a while.
PROS: - Smells absolutely delicious - Extremely gentle; doesn't damage my hair - Good price
CONS: - I need to use a lot of conditioner, because there are no silicones so my hair basically ends up absorbing it all the instant I put it on; I use 5-6 pumps for the hairs at the top of my head, and 5-6 pumps for the hair below the ears for a total of 10~12 pumps total in one wash
Having baby fine thin hair, I was looking for a product that didn't strip the color from my hair, as my normal shampoo did. I had watched an infomercial, for the other, more expensive Creme Cowash Cleanser and loved the idea, just not the price. When I found Renpures Coconut Creme Co Wash, I was thrilled. I decided to order a bottle as the price point was about 1/4 of what the more expensive brand is. I am so glad I did, now nearly a year later of using this product. My hair is silky, has back the luster that it did when I was a child, and holds onto color (My hair no longer fades with washing, it just grows out). I took my bottle with me to the beauty salon, and as my stylist said. I am feeding my hair from both the inside and out!
I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants softer, silkier more manageable hair!
