I bought this a couple weeks ago on a whim. I really like the scent, the pump, and how cleansing it is. On top of that, I also feel like I can get away without an RO.
Unfortunately, over the last couple weeks, I've had some really bad hair days. Limp waves that don't come to life. I have 2c/3a on really good hair days, but my hair suddenly was 2a/2b. I kept note of what products I was using and realized that all my bad hair days had one product in common. This cowash.
It's disappointing because this is quite pricy ($36). I get better results with my $1 Suave conditioner. I do think it's worth a shot because it is a nice product, just be aware that there are other products out there that function the same if not better for much less.

I love this co-wash!! It lathers well and smells awesome. I even use this in my 11 month olds 3b hair prior to a regular conditioner. My baby has really thick and curly hair, that since birth has been an amazing full headed mass. I wanted something that would not dry her hair out, was natural, and strong enough to handle all of her curls. Most baby products couldn't handle her hair by 9 months so I decided to try this out. It leaves both of our hair types soft and smooth and for my baby her hair is well maintained. I would highly recommend it.

I really love this stuff! I used to us Devacurl's No Poo, but I like this better because I feel like it rinses cleaner, and moisturizes my hair more. I like that the bottle includes more as well, and also that it has a pump. The stuff smells great, and my hair is always super soft! Definitely a keeper!

Glad that I got this. My scalp hasn't been this clean in months. Regular conditioner and shampoos weren't doing it for me. I cleansed my scalp twice with it and no over drying at all. Went by what the directions said. The smell is like a perfume but not overwhelming. I have medium thick hair, fine to medium strands, low porosity and semi protein sensitive.
Also I got good slip even though I detanged before and I still had some tangles. I have long hair about 4 inches past middle back and this bottle will last me for a while. I will repurchase even for that price.

I was a product tester for this before it launched and I went crazy for it. It didn't know what product I was using so I wound up searching numberous new co-washes before I recognized the lovely scent and distinct texture of this one. I've been using it ever since...2 years maybe? I just love it. It cleanses, conditions, and refreshes perfectly. I rarely need to use a separate conditioner when I do my 2-3x a week washes. I love everything about this product for my 3b curls.

My favorite cowash!! The first time i used it, my hair was really dirty and i was surprise to see that this product cleaned it very well! And of course my was super soft after! I was also able to detangle my hair with so that's a great point.
I do use shampoo so this is a good product for me when i don't have time to do my whole routine. I will just use this to cowash detangle and i'm out of the shower ! I used that product a lot during the summer too!
2 downsides: 1) the price .... 2) the pump which is annoying ! you have to pump like 10 times to have a descent amount of product !

This is the only cowash that has worked for me long term (other products like the As I Am Cowash stopped working after a couple of uses). It left my hair clean but not stripped and had enough slip to start the detangling process. There are only two reasons I will probably not repurchase 1) Price. This is a very big container, but compared to other options out there, $30 is extremely expensive. 2) Ingredients. I try to use products that are natural/mostly natural, and this product definitely does not fit in that category. The product overall, however, is very effective.

For one, the smell is way too strong and perfumy. Secondly, no matter how much or little I used or how much I rubbed my scalp, it left my hair feeling weighed down and not cleaned at all. My scalp would get oily within a few hours. I love the double detangler, so that's why I gave their cowash a try. What a let-down. Especially for $30!! I'm going back to my $7 As I Am coconut cowash, which leaves my scalp much cleaner and is easier to detangle with. Such a waste of money.

I was so excited to try Ouidad. However I am very dissapointed in this cowash. It is too heavy for my 3A hair. It leaves a greasy buildup even though I scrub and scrub to rinse it out. It also leaves my hair too limp. I was using Eufora before and I am going to go back to that.

This product is amazing! It will work wonders for the look and feel of your curls! Get the whole experience with a Ouidad cut as well. If you live anywhere near Central Florida, please call us to get started on the Ouidad system and cut!

This left my curls bouncy and frizz free. The only reason it is not 4 curls is because I still needed to use normal conditioner after using this co-wash.

I really wanted to like this. But, it was too heavy for my 2C hair. It left my hair feeling limp & coated.

One of the best co-washes I've used, I use this daily and will definitely be repurchasing. It feels really gentle which I love (especially for my scalp) during the dry winter months.

I am not generally a fan of co-washes, but this is my favorite by far. I agree the pump is a little bit of an issue -- especially when my hair was long! However, it does do it's job when you're looking for a light cleanse. It makes your hair soft and smells nice. It's a great in between shampoos option so you're not stripping your hair all of the time.

I have to admit this was my very first co-wash that I have ever tried, but it was amazing. When I first used this product I was skeptical. My first thought was that my hair was going to lose it's natural wave and/or become oily. Which would make me have to re-wash and style my hair. However, I was pleasantly surprise in the outcome. My waves were silky, smooth and hydrated (which has always been a problem of mine). My hair appeared to be heathy and happy instead of thirsty and damaged. I love this product and from now on I will consider it to be one of my favorites!

This co-wash was okay. I didn't like that my scalp felt oily and my hair felt like a little more moisture was lost than I would like even though I focused on massaging it into my scalp. I wish it had more slip so that I could detangle my hair with it in but there wasn't enough slip for my hair for that. It wasn't right for my hair but I can see it working better for someone else.

This is a GREAT product! absolutely wonderful! left my hair feeling clean not stripped and soft. The only downside is the PRICE.. the price is not really economical for most.

Great Product!! This Product really "Cleans" your hair without stripping hair's natural moisture however I'm not a fan of the pump.

I LOVE this! It's extremely gentle, refreshing, softening, and detangling. It smells like tropical flowers, with a hint of citrus and a little bit of vanilla. It has very subtle frothing action, but it's not heavy lather or sudsy, soap foam. After a cleanse my hair feels smooth, clean, and silky. I am truly impressed with how well this slips through my hair without having to slowly finger rake before using my Ouidad comb. I like that it's protein-free, and it does not contain menthol. It's nice to have a "pretty" smelling cleanser option. This co-wash is working perfectly for me during low dew point temperatures, when my hair can't seem to get enough humectation. It works beautifully with Ouidad Hydrafusion Intense Curl Cream, and Moisture Lock Gel-Cream to keep my curls springy, shiny, and able to retain moisture. Recently, I've hit the jackpot with Ouidad's new products, and I am so glad I've revisited this high quality brand. I highly recommend trying this lovely co-wash.

I really liked this Co-Wash. Yes you have to use a lot and the pump is ridiculously horrible. That is why I didn't give it 5 stars. The pump is THAT bad. Once I got past the pumping problem I was very pleased with the creamy-ness and the cleaning power. Both complimented each other if that makes sense? It was moisturizing enough and I felt like my hair was getting a mild cleansing.
