Im new to this whole Co- Wash technique, so I did some research on what its all about and
the effects that it will have on my hair.
What is a Co- Wash?
Co- washing is the process of using a conditioner to cleanse your hair instead of a shampoo.
What is the purpose of doing a Co- Wash?
Using shampoos to cleanse your hair on a regular basis, can cause dry, hard to manage hair.
By using a good co- wash, you can add moisture to your hair in between regular shampoos,
creating softer, healthier, moisturized hair.
How often should you Co- Wash?
Once or twice a week in between your regular weekly shampoo, in order to refresh your curls.
What are the benefits of a Co- Wash?
It allows you to refresh your hair, so that your curls stay moisturized and defined.
What are the disadvantages of doing a Co-Wash?
You have to be careful not to cause product buildup by overlapping products. Make sure that
are thoroughly rinsing out your shampoos and even the Co- Wash to prevent this. If you
don’t properly rinse out your hair, you will notice that your curls won’t look there best ! You
want to try and get conditioners that are light, moisturizing, and easy to wash out. Make
sure you stay away from conditioners that have protein in them !
