Never Buy Co-Wash Again, Make it Yourself-DIY
Raise your hand if you are a product junkie? Don’t be shy! We’re NOT here to judge you. If you are anything like me, then you can’t wait to get your hands on the next best product to test out. It’s almost like a “high”.
The bottle is all brand new and squeaky clean. And they know just what to do with the packaging that just keeps calling out to you.. buy me.. buuuuy me! It’s so hard to resist.
This year I promised myself that I would resist the urge and learn to make some of my favorite products at home. You know? Like a DIY type of thing. Today I will be showing you one of my favorite DIY products that will help you fight the good fight and starch off one thing at time on that product list of must haves (that your really don’t need in the first place) when your visit the store.
Today I’ll be showing you how to make (drum roll please) DIY co-wash. For me a good co-wash is a must have. Like seriously, I must have this product in my hair care routine in order to keep my hair shiny and healthy. About 3 or 4 years ago I all together stop shampooing my hair and instead starting co-washing. Don’t get me wrong I still shampoo my hair maybe once a month, if that. I can’t tell you how big of a difference this has made in my hair. My hair is no longer dry, weak or brittle. I cannot imagine not using some kind of co-wash.
Co-Wash Again, Make it Yourself-DIY
Now, the problem for me is that I have a ton of thick hair and I use a lot of product. And if you know like I know co-wash conditioner is not very cheap at the store. At least not the ones I like to use. So one day I decided to whip up a match of my very own and see how my hair reacts to it. And I must say my hair loved it just as much as the store bought brands.
What you will need
Pure Natural soap (pH10) 50ml
Natural conditioner (pH) 200ml
Rose Mary Essential Oil 12 drops
Peppermint Essential Oil 12 drops
First make sure you have a clean container or bottle with a lid to put your co-wash. Next, mix conditioner and soap together. Follow by adding each of the essential oils. Make sure everything is blended well. Your co-wash is now ready for use.
I cannot tell how much I love this co-wash. It helps with stimulating my scalp, which helps to promote hair growth. It also cleanses and conditions. Try it out for yourself and please leave a comment to let me know how it turned out for you.
