Are You Team Shampoo or Are you Team Cowash?

Are You Team Shampoo or Are you Team Cowash?

Gone are the days of having limited choices of cleansing your hair. Should you use shampoo or should you use a cowash? As a naturalista you have a smorgasbord of choices when it comes to how you care for your curls. We know that so many of you are torn between being team shampoo or team cowash.

Shampoos have the reputation of being full of harsh sulfates that strip the hair of it’s natural oils.  Historically, shampoo has been a staple in black hair care regimens long before cleansing with conditioners came to be an alternative to option. Formulas of shampoos have changed for the better.

Which is why we have created the Long and Luxe Strengthening Shampoo. This hydrating shampoo cleanses your hair and scalp while adding in moisture. Contrary to what many natural hair enthusiasts believe about shampoos our’s helps to reduces tangles and eases the detangling process.

We have also formulated this moisturizing shampoo to strengthen your hair for longer hair lengths as well. This shampoo is awesome for naturalistas who experience extreme build-up after applying moisturizers, leave-in conditioners, and oils in between their wash days.

Cowashing may be an alternative to shampooing that you are well acquainted with or it may be a method that you are completely unfamiliar with. A cleansing conditioner is the way to cleanse your hair most of the time.

This conditioning cream gently removes built up residue including all of the things you've used to style and maintain your coils and curls. Our Long and Luxe Growash 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. When using this cowash always remember to thoroughly rinse it out of your hair. Your hair will be soft to the touch and your detangling time will be reduced.

We suggest trying both cleansers to learn what will work best for your natural hair. Many use our Strengthening Shampoo when they feel their curls are in need of a deep cleaning and other naturalistas use the Growash as a gentle cleanser when refreshing their curls. Both offer a beautiful scent that will be sure to turn heads when your curls and coils enter any room.

Be sure to follow up either of these luxurious cleansers with the Long and Luxe Conditioner as a 30 minute deep treatment for your curls. Which will you use? Leave us a comment below.
