Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Cleansing Product I've been trying to find a cleansing product for my hair that would cleanse without drying, and this one is perfect. I have type 3B curls and this co-wash left my hair moisturized without weighing it down. My hair always feels healthy and light after use. And it smells absolutely amazing. I doubt I'll find a cleansing product that could compare.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice I like this Co-wash a lot. I started with the other high porosity products in this line but I didn't care for them . (they dried my hair out) But this co-wash works really well for me followed by the peace rose line. The combo has really helped my dry, frizzy, unmanageable hair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crazy moisturizing I love this product. It's the only thing that I can use to cleanse my hair. It leaves my hair moisturized and cleansed. I am I awe. I also use it for detangling and its just thick enough and slippery. I'm truly in love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 4c detangling co-wash This is the best Co wash I have ever used on my baby fine, tangle prone, porous, 4c hair. It leaves my hair moisturized and slippery so that tangling is minimized. I wish it was available in a economy / one liter size. I will buy and use this product forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wonders Pros: This stuff leaves my hair so soft and easy to detangle. It gently cleanses and my 3c/4a curls pop. It also reduces shrinkage. I am so happy that I found a co-wash that makes my hair butter soft and provides great slip! Cons: Very little lather. My first time using this cowash it threw me off that it did not lather. I could not tell if it was actually cleaning my hair or not. I also feel because of this "no lather" I use wayyy too much product and I'm not getting my money's worth. So keep in mind if you decide to buy this. You will not get any lather! Also I hate the smell!! The only way I can describe the smell is a earthy, men's natural oil cologne smell almost. The scent lingers too! But hey maybe you guys out there will like smell. I would still recommend to purchase because of how manageable your hair is after using. I'll most likely buy this again but dang I wish they would change the smell!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simply Amazing I hardly ever leave reviews for anything, but I must say, this stuff is awesome!! I wish there was a larger bottle! When I first started using it, I was hesitant about if it was actually cleansing my hair, but I could definitely tell the difference afterwards with my curls and how clean my hair felt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st cowash I actually like! Left my hair clean and moisturized. I've not been a fan of cowashes in the past, most left my hair feeling either unclean or dry. But not this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best cowash I have ever used. This cowash not only smells heavenly but effectively cleanses and conditions in one step leaving hair in beautiful condition, soft, supple with tremendous slip. The amazing scent lasts for days. All-in-all this product gets an A+. Another success for Shea Moisture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! More moiature for my hair! This Mongongo co-wash is just what my hair needed. I wasn't sure if a product for high-prosity hair would work for me but it does. I am adding this line of Shea Moisture products to my favorites.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think I finally found something for my 4C hair!! My hair is preternaturally dry. Even when I have washed my hair, and used all sorts of oils or creams, it feels hard/crunchy even when wet, and dries out in no time. I've tried other Shea Moisture hair products and hadn't had much success, but wasn't ready to give up. I discovered this line, and decided to combine it with a few other things as last ditch effort to take care of my natural hair, and I think I've found my hold grail! I used this co-wash, and followed up with the Manuka honey hydration mask. I then used the Sacha Inchi tonic, then the sacha inchi curl defining smoothie. I usually do a 2 strand twist that takes forever to do as I'm constantly having to rehydrate my hair as I go. Guys... I didn't have to rehydrate once! My hair did NOT feel dry/crunchy AT ALL! I hope this wasn't a first time fluke.. But I'm soooo happy right now! Looking forward to the next wash (that's never happened)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MONGONGO & HEMP SEED OILS HIGH POROSITY MOISTURE-SEAL CO-WASH Love it!!!! I used Deva Curl products, they are good! But my hair loves this collection...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like it ! Good for after swimming I currently swim twice a week and I like using this product afterwards. This product rids my hair of the chlorine , but keeps my natural oils intact. My hair is extremely thick and kinky, so I enjoy the co-wash method vs. shampooing and conditioning. This product makes my hair smell lovely and it feels so soft. The co-wash also does a great job of bringing out my natural curl pattern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Miracle I had to sign up just so I could write a review for others to see. I was going through it with my hair. I have to color it every 6 weeks because I refuse to go grey at my age. I am in my 40's and am not quite ready to display my age. My hair was breaking off BAD!! It is extremely dry and curly (not a pretty curl, where I could wear it natural) so I flat iron it once a week after I wash and blow dry it straight with a fine tooth comb attachment. Then I maintain my sleek style by bumping and smoothing it back out with the flat iron on a daily basis. I bought the High Porosity Moisture Seal Co Wash, the High Porosity Moisture Seal Masque, and the High Porosity Elixir Oil Spray. I've used it twice and low and behold... No more breakage!! This line has saved me from cutting it all off, and starting all over (in which I highly considered before purchasing and trying this product line) as my last resort. This line is a miracle and I will invest my money in this line because it is worth it!! Thank you Shea Moisture for creating this line... For it has brought my hair back to life and has giving me confidence... Once again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from By far my favorite co wash I ever used! Seriously, I have used many different co washes that swear to "gently cleanse my hair" AND moisturize it. But this product is so moisturizing AND clarifying! I only wish they sold their co washes in a 16oz bottle with a pump. I go through this product so fast because I wash my hair once a week with this product. Just for reference: I have 4A/B hair, high porosity, medium to fine hair, mid back length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpected blessing I purchase this product on Wednesday, along with the Low Porosity Leave-In conditioner. I co-washed my hair with this product my has never felt so soft nor looked as healthy and shiny on day two before. I was not aware of my porosity before just didn't pay any mind but I'm glad I pick this up. I will be returning the low porosity conditioner to purchase the shampoo from the same line.

I have an oily scalp and dry hair. Should I use shampoo for my scalp, apply and rinse co-wash and then apply conditioner?

Asked by: MBailey
For an oily scalp, a co-wash is not necessary. We recommend using a clarifying shampoo like our African Water Mint & Ginger Shampoo and applying conditioner to the ends of hair to avoid buildup around roots. We also recommend using a leave-in conditioner to help with excessive dryness.

Is this a conditioner?

Asked by: RMR123
Hi RMR123, The Mongongo & Hemp Seed Oils High Porosity Moisture-Seal Co-Wash is a combination of Shampoo and Conditioner. It is a great option for those who are looking for a quicker time in the shower and will get a 2-In-1 with this product. It does have conditioning properties but you can also condition again right after if you need extra softening.

I just bought a sample of Shea Moisture (facial & oil) and love it. Now looking for shampoo and body soap.I don't know what "co-wash" means. Also, am Caucasian but wonder if I can use African Black Soap.

Asked by: Mima
Hi Mima, A Co-Wash is a combination of shampoo and conditioner in one. If a shampoo is too clarifying, a co-wash is a better option as it is lighter and more conditioning. This also skips the step for those in a time crunch as it will cleanse and condition at the same time. With all our products, they can be used by anyone. We do not target a single ethnicity to use these products.

Does this shampoo chelate minerals from hard water?

Asked by: AmyF
Hi AmyF No, it does not. We do not offer any chelating Shampoos as they contain ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid and are extremely drying. We would suggest using a combination of one our clarifying shampoos and a DIY apple cider vinegar rinse. Some of our clarifying shampoos include; the Sacha Inchi Oil Clarifying Shampoo, Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo, and African Water Mint Shampoo.

Could ,I use a small amount as a leave in?  I love this co-wash but I need a little something to leave in. Other brands don't mix well with the high porosity styling gel which I must use, because it  also works amazing.

Asked by: jrochelle
Hi Jilly, You may use the High Porosity Co-wash as a styler as well as a rinse out.

How does Co-wash work with regular shampoo?

Asked by: Patricia
Hi Patricia, thank you for getting in touch with SheaMoisture! ‘Co-wash’ is short for ‘conditioner only’ washing which means you skip shampoo and rely solely on conditioner. It is used to cleanse and moisturize hair like a shampoo, but doesn’t contain surfactants, which lather or create suds. Its usage is as follows: You can apply it to your head before your shower. Massage it in for 3 to 5 minutes from roots to ends. Then rinse with warm water. You may follow up with a conditioner if you feel your hair needs additional moisture. Have a great day!
