Lowpoo/Co-wash products that smell great?

chimericchimeric Posts: 2Registered Users
Yes, I'm silly and scented products are probably horrible for hair, anyway. I'm trying to make my hair healthier but I'm going to miss the products I use now because I love the way they smell and the way they make my hair and shower smell post-wash!

Previously, I've been using Biolage Ultra-Hydrating, Herbal Essences Hello Hydration and/or Christophe Hydrating products. A long, long time ago, I did use Yuko Phitenbella, which I believe was sulfate-free and super, but I'm not sure I could find it now!

Please, can someone give me some recommendations for products that have a great scent? I need to find a co-wash/conditioner and a shampoo to be used in a lowpoo/co-wash regimen! Bonus points for things I can find somewhere locally like Ulta!

I'm a 2a with coarse/thick hair and porous hair and appreciate any advice that you're willing to give! :]

    I don't really have any recommendations for you, but it is not silly at all! I was going to try Yes to Cucumbers until I smelled it, and it smelled like a salad! Now however, it doesn't matter what my shampoo/condish smells like, I scented my FSG with coconut fragrance oil, and my hair will stay smelling like fresh coconuts for a couple of days at least, longer if I use my FSG again. I do use coconut scented shampoo and condish, but I really don't think that scent lasts as long.

    You could try adding essential oils to any products that you like.

    My Shea Moisture Smoothie stuff has an amazing scent that lasts if I use enough of it.
    Sort of CG sometimes, but not really
    2B, medium? normal porosity and elasticity?
