Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner

This product has emulsifying wax, will it buildup if I use it for co-wash. I have 3a low density medium porosity hair.

3a, med porous, low density
Poo: Have to admit I have recently become a Wen convert. Love it. I have always had problems with my hair "hanging" right, curling uniformly and destorting the perimeter line. Wen makes it hang evenly.

    Hmmm, I'm not sure. I've used it as both a RO and a leave-in and have never noticed any build-up. I don't co-wash, but I low-poo with the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus shampoo and have never had issues.

    I know some will disagree, as for quite a few here Shea Butter can build up. Just, in my experience, it's never been an issue

    Thank you for mentioning the shea butter. I also should add that I shampoo my hair weekly. For that I alternate between CJ Gentle Shampoo, Aubrey Organics and DevalCurl No Poo.

    I'm not sure that will be an effective cowash. It doesn't have much slip.

    It built up on me big time. I stopped using Shea moisture because of the build up problems
