For months I’ve wonder how Eden would compare to As I Am Coconut Co-Wash Conditioner. Two weeks ago I finally decided to take the plunge and bought a jar at Sally Beauty ($8.49).
I started off with dry, in-need-of-moisture, deep-conditioned-a week-ago, took-my-marley-twists-out-3-days-ago, been-frolicking-with-my-hair-out-since-then, hair. For extra-moisture on wash days, I usually spray my hair with water + glycerin, but for the life of me, I just I couldn’t find my bottle of glycerin. Instead, I tossed some Organix conditioner in my hair instead, halfheartedly fingercombed my hair to remove shed hairs, and made dinner.
With a pan of creamy fettucine alfredo with chicken simmering on low (fist pump for Pinterest and 30 minute recipes!) I jumped in the shower.
In comparison to As I Am’s co-wash cleanser, it provides a touch more slip. Because I hadn’t finger combed/detangled my hair with the same gusto and thoroughness I usually do before hopping in the shower, so I was worried I’d set myself up for heartache and tangles. Thankfully, Eden’s cowash has LOTS slip. Scout’s honor. My hair just… melted with this cleansing conditioner in. Finger combing this conditioner through was. a. breeze. Also, unlike As I Am, this cleansing conditioner didn’t leave my hair feeling squeaky clean/stripped when I went back for a second application.
I hopped out of the shower, wrapped my hair in towel to soak up all excess water from my hair, and then happy danced, happy danced, happy danced. My hair was sooo soft, fluffy, tangle-free, and moisturized.
I’m pretty sure As I Am’s been bumped outta the “staples” line up by this cleansing conditioner. Can’t wait to use this next week ♥
