Have you heard of New Wash yet? It’s a new way to “wash” your hair without the use of any detergents (SLS or other foaming agents) and instead uses aloe vera and essential oils to clean the dirt and sweat from your hair without drying it out. Since New Wash doesn’t strip your hair of all its oils, there’s no need for conditioner after. Ooh, that has me QUITE skeptical. It also claims to be appropriate for all hair types, from thick and curly to thin and flat to color treated to natural. Hmmmm.
This is what I’m dealing with in terms of hair: fine and thin, bleach damaged, flat on top with frizzy, poofy ends. You can read my whole hairstory here for more detail. My hair has been pissing me off and is not in good shape. I’ve cut quite a bit off, but unless I go back to a pixie cut (plz no) there’s going to be some damage which I’ll slowly grow out and trim. I’m ready for a life-changing product, as New Wash claims to be. The packaging tells me it can take up to two weeks for your hair and scalp to adjust to New Wash vs conventional shampoos, so I used New Wash for ten days to get a good taste of how my hair reacts to New Wash before sharing my review. Here’s how New Wash worked for me!
