How to Cowash Cornrows on Natural Hair

Image
Post from our Facebook page, DiscoveringNatural Last night,  I cowashed my natural hair which is in a protective style cornrows using EdenBodyworks cleansing cowash. How to do it: STEP 1: Saturate hair with water
STEP 2: Apply cowash
STEP 3: Rinse thoroughly
STEP 4: Dry. I tied a T-Shirt on my hair, and then wrapped my hair with my microfiber Turbie Twist towel.
After hair has dried,  moisturize as usual. I used applied a liquid Leave-In by Belnouvo and massaged scalp with my DIY oil, and sealed with Kinky Tresses butter Covered hair with a wig cap because it is very snug. You can use a scarf. This helps with any frizzing. More tips on Discoveringnatural channel

My hair had been acting like a diva lately, so I gave her a trim and then clarified her by doing a Rhassoul Clay cleanse. I am in the process of using up my products, and since I only have one more use of the clay, I decided to use it. Rhassoul clay is excellent in clarifying my hair  and defining my curls. Watch this and see how truthful this statement is.


I have NEVER had an issue with this particular brand of Rhassoul clay, but today, I made several HUGE mistakes!!
