a few ways you can use your conditioning cleanse


Do you know everything you can do with your LA Naturals Manuka Honey & Bergamot Conditioning Cleanse? We want you to get the most out of your products, so take a look.

PRE-CLARIFYING SOFTENER: Clarifying shampoos can be rather harsh, so we suggest using your Conditioning Cleanse on the first wash to prep strands and dissolve dirt and product build-up. Your clarifying wash will immediately cleanse strands on the second wash, and your curls won’t feel as a stripped.

BRAIDS AND LOCS: The Conditioning Cleanse has more of a milky feel that easily rinses out, making it perfect to use on braids and locs. The infusion of manuka honey helps treat the scalp while wearing a protective style, as well as promotes growth.

DETANGLER: Add a dollop of your Double Creme Moisture Masque to your Conditioning Cleanse and you’ve just created a super hydrating wash for curls that usually get tangled during your shampoo session. It works especially well if you’re 4c.

MID-WEEK REFRESHING WASH: Naturally, it works well as a mid-week refresher and it only takes one wash to re-prep curls for fingerstyling or two-strand twisting.
