Have you ever heard of Co- Washing? Over the years I have noticed major change in my hair since I started Co-washing from time to time. What say you? Are you a naturalista who co-washes? Or do you love your shampoo? I love shampoo and co-washing!
Some may think of washing with no shampoo as gross or not cleansing on the hair. Well I am here to tell you not at all! Co- washing is great for your hair. You can still use conditioner to cleanse your scalp and get the same results that you would if you were to wash with shampoo. Although many shampoos today are straying away from harsh ingredients such as sulfates, many still contain harsh ingredients. They will strip your hair and leave it feeling icky and hard to detangle. So co- washing has its benefits:
1. It reduces knots and tangles
2. It helps moisturize your hair (great if you are a transitioner)
3. Great for Hydrating your scalp and hair
I know Co-Washing is not for everyone but give it a try if you are not getting the results that you would like with shampooing. It’s nice to be able to co- wash if you want to do a different style in between washing. I recently started co-washing my little ones hair and I have noticed a major difference in the appearance of her hair. Its shiny and very moisturized. I have also noticed with my hair that it isn’t dull like it previously was before I began mainly co-washing. It now has brilliant shine and the moisture is on “fleek” LOL!
Here are some good conditioners for co washing:
1. Herbal Essences Hello Hydration (Old school LOL)
2. TREsemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner
5. Mielle Organics Dew Berry Co-wash (I use this one on my little one)
