On My Radar: As I Am Cleansing Pudding + Hydration Elation

On My Radar_As I Am Cleansing Pudding & Hydration Elation

If you know anything about my natural hair, you know that some of my favorite products are by As I Am. I randomly discovered this brand back in when I was transitioning and looking for a cleansing conditioner and since then I’ve mentioned my beloved Coconut Co-Wash more than a few times but long story short: It’s bomb. Period. So when I ran out this past wash day and went to my local beauty supply to find they were smooth out, I was UPSET.

I don’t really do shampoo unless I need to and it took me foreverrr to find a conditioner that left my hair feeling clean. What was a girl to do?? I spent a good 15 minutes trying to figure out my life…or at the very least if there was another store close by that had the cleansing conditioner. After serious debate, I decided to just try a few new As I Am products because I mean, if the cowash (and leave in because you already know how I feel about their leave in hunny) worked well, maybe I’d have similar success with some of their other products.

First thing I grabbed was the Cleansing Pudding+ Sulfate-Free Moisturizing Cleanser. It had me at sulfate-free so even it it isn’t as magical as my cowash, at least I know it’s gentle.

CLEANSING PUDDING+ Sulfate-Free Moisturizing Cleanser

  • Cleanses hair of residue and product build-up
  • Moisturizes as it cleanses
  • Rids scalp of excess sebum, environmental impurities and shedding scalp debris
  • Provides a soothing scalp treatment
  • Helps promote a healthy environment for hair growth.

I still needed a conditioner so I grabbed the Hydration Elation Intensive Conditioner. My hair is chronically dry so anything with hydration in the name is good in my book.

I’m excited to try these out and let y’all know how the crown is feeling it. I’ve tried both once and so far: YASSS. But I’ll leave it at that and look out for my full review.

Does anyone else have that one brand of products that your hair just seems to vibe with?

Stay Blessed Beautiful!

    Glad you were able to re-stock and get your life, lol! I’ve been using Shea Moisture for the last few months. Prior to that I was using Aunt Jackie’s (although at the time I rarely wore my hair curly). So far the Coconut Hibiscus line is doing the job, but I wish their style milk was thicker since my hair is VERY dry. I’m currently using Pantene’s CoWash weekly & once a month I use E’tae Caramel treatment & shampoo w/ Shea Moisture.
