Today, I did a Ayurvedic co-wash with my favorite powders mixed with VO5 Strawberry Moisture Milks. I know this may sound strange but my hair loves my homemade concoctions. I have two bottles mixed with different powders, each serving different purposes.
The process of using the mixtures was fairly simple.
Shampoo: I cleaned my scalp with my shikakai bar.
Condition: I used my conditioning mix; however, it does have some cleansing powders. I did a double cleanse because I ran today.
Leave-in: I sprayed a little rose water and my homemade moisture mix throughout my hair. Next, I sealed with my oil mix and castor oil. Lastly, I applied jojoba oil to my scalp to combat any drying the powders may cause.
I wanted to share my mix with you all just in case you are looking for a quick Ayurvedic co-wash mix.
Ayurvedic Co-wash Recipes:
Each bottle contained 1/4 conditioner, 1 teaspoon of each powder, and 2/4 water. I left a quarter of the bottle empty just in case I needed to add more conditioner or water. To get the powders into the bottles without making a mess, I used a small funnel I found at the Dollar Store. Each bottle needs to be shaken before each use.

I’m going to baggy tonight with my sulfur mix. Now I’m air drying in a bun. Sorry but the camera on the iphone is horrible
