Product Review: Detangling Co-Wash by Mielle Organics

Price: $13.99 for an 8 fl. oz bottle 

Where I bought it:
*Mielle Organics is now available at Sally's (selected cities). Be sure to call your local Sally's to see if it's in stock at the location. If your Sally's doesn't carry it, make sure you let them know you want Mielle Organics sold at the store.

Why I bought it:  My original go-to co-wash conditioner was Shea Moisture's Coconut & Hibiscus Co-Wash but I found myself wanting to try something new. My hair was still thriving with Shea Moisture but I felt like it was time to explore other options. Plus, I wanted to try the hair products after falling in love with their vitamins.

Product Description: Our Detangling Conditioning Cleanser is for thin, thick, curly, hair removes impurities without stripping hair of natural oils.

Directions: Apply to the scalp and ends of the hair and gently massage all throughout the hair to cleanse the hair of natural products. Use in between shampoos.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Cocos Nucifera (coconut oil), Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Chloride, ButyrospermumParkii (Shea Butter) Fruit, Cetyl Alcohol, Simmondsia Chinensis (Organic Jojoba) Seed Oil, Crambe Abyssinica (Abyssinia) Seed Oil, Sclerocarya Birrea (Marula) Kernal oil, Cyamopsis Tetragonoloba (Guar) Gum (derived from the guar bean- thickening agent), Hyrdolyzed Silk (Silk Amino Acids), Potassium Sorbate, Polyaminopropyl Biguanide, Phthalate-Free Fragrance, Tocopheral, Citric acid

How I use it: I use this c0-wash once a week on wash day. I apply it to my scalp and add a little extra to the ends of my hair.

What I love about it: This Detangling Co-Wash has a soft, lightweight consistency. The fragrance is light and smells like berries to me. It is not overpowering or strong at all, for those of you sensitive to fragrances.  

Unlike other co-washes I've used before, this co-wash doesn't cling to my scalp. It's so gentle on my scalp, that sometimes I find myself questioning if I've used enough. After I wash out the co-wash, my scalp feels clean but not stripped. My hair is also soft and 
my tangles or knots melt away.

 But, one of my favorite things about this cleansing co-wash is that it brings out my curls. I can honestly say that I've never experienced that with another co-wash. 

What I don't like:  I wish this came in a bigger size. I'm able to get about a month/ month and a half from a bottle. It's not an expensive co-wash but it adds up (when you include shipping costs). Hopefully Mielle Organics will introduce a big pump bottle for this co-wash.  

Final thoughts: I started using this co-wash in October and my hair loves it! If you're looking for a co-wash cleaning conditioner that is lightweight, you should check out Mielle Organics. This is definitely one of my staple products and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
