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.
Co-wash Mix 1:
The first bottle of Ayurvedic co-wash is any V05 conditioner but I used the split-ends formula with Shikakai, Neem, Aritha, Tusli, and Amla with sunflower oil.
Co-wash Mix 2:
The second bottle of Ayurvedic co-wash is V05 moisture milks mixed with Neem, Aritha, Amla, Hibiscus, Orange, Lemon, Rose, Tusli, Henna, distilled water, sesame oil, and sunflower oil.
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
