MOVE! to Bloglovin'

Hey Lovelies
Don't you hate when things get discontinued? Your fave lipstick or hair product?
For me it was Sally's bootleg brand Mixed Silk's Leave In Conditioner.
Welp Google Reader is locking up shop on July 1st
and how devastating would it be if you couldn't catch up with my posts

So make the move on over to Bloglovin' and follow me on there.
Click on the Bloglovin' button over there on the right --->
I love it for all my fav blogs & sites. 

You can group your blogs & they have apps for your mobile devices.
I got em on my phone & iPad!

So don't get caught out in the hot streets without moving all the blogs you love & follow on Google Reader (including mine :)
(to be safe, click follow on both sites when you search on Bloglovin)

Co-Wash Crazy

Hello Lovelies!

I wanted to touch on the subject of co-washes. Naturals all over co-wash as a way of cleansing their hair without stripping it of moisture. Traditionally one would use a rinse out conditioner to do this but hair product companies have formulated their own co-washes for us ladies to use & abuse.
I was never a fan of traditional co washing because the conditioners always left a residue on my scalp and it was just a big no no. In previous posts, if I ever said I co washed, I really just applied the conditioner to my hair alone. With the insurgence of co-washes, I was eager to try some but never really bit the bullet until last summer. I tried the infamous As I Am Coconut Cowash (2 uses) & one that isn't classified as a co wash but a cleansing cream. The Keracare Cleansing Cream.

There are actually co-washes I had my eye on for the summer

Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Co-Wash Conditioning Cleanser
Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea All Natural Cleansing CoWash
Cantu Conditioning Co Wash

but I went to the one I had the most experience with which was the Keracare Cleansing Cream.
I will do a review on this soon so look out! & 
hopefully I'll get to do a Compare & Contrast Review on YouTube with it & another product I have my eye on.

Do you co-wash? Which products are your go-to if you do? If you don't, why not?
Would love to hear from you!
