Product Review: As I Am Coconut Cowash Cleansing Conditioner

I usually use my Mud Wash to clarify my hair or Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner for co washing my hair, but I thought I would try this Cowash. I saw many raving reviews about it for being a cleansing conditioner.

Price and Size:

Product Description:

This light no suds conditioning cream gently removes residue including all of the things you've used to style and maintain your coils and curls. As I Am Coconut CoWash is the way to cleanse your hair most of the time. This light no-suds conditioning cream gently spreads easily throughout your hair and removes residue including all of the things you've used to style and maintain your coils and curls.

Coconut Cowash is different from any other because it contains a special blend of natural ingredients that work to promote healthy hair growth from the follicular level. Maintains moisture, adds more moisture and helps hair retain moisture until your next cleanse.

Package Instructions:

Wet hair thoroughly. Rub a liberal amount of As I Am Coconut CoWash within palms and distribute throughout hair. Work product through hair and massage scalp with fingertips as you would a conventional shampoo. Carefully detangle hair with a wide-tooth comb. Rinse well.
Repeat only if necessary to remove excessive product build up or for further scalp cleansing.

My Experience:

I used As I Am every week as my main source of washing for an entire month. As beauticians would do with relaxers, I would brush As I Am on my scalp first and gently massage my scalp to release the product buildup. Then I added the rest of As I Am to my hair, pinned my hair up, and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Then I rinsed out with warm water and moved on to my deep conditioning process.

My Thoughts:

There are a lot of claims with As I Am...and frankly, I'm not impressed with this co wash. I literally gave it away because I was that unhappy with it. It does spread easily on and throughout my hair. It was so smooth, but it made my hair a bit more tangled...and I detangled before washing too.

I did see that As I Am thoroughly cleansed my scalp and hair, like very clean. But, it was so clean that my hair felt so dry, "haystack-ish," and the moisture was completely taken from my hair. I did an extra deep conditioning just to make sure my hair was thoroughly moisturized.

As I Am did rinse easily from my hair, which I couldn't get it out of my hair any faster. The product claims that it is "gentle enough for daily use..." I surely wouldn't use it daily...not for my hair, I will say this product is not for me.


Natural hair says: it is best to know your hair before purchasing products without researching it. Make sure you learn your hair, check the product label, and read on reviews to determine if the product is worth purchasing. Never purchase on a whim.

Always Desire Your Natural,

*As I Am Coconut Cowash Cleansing Conditioner was purchased with my own money and this is my honest opinion.
