Co-washing is a no poo method or shampoo alternative method used in cleaning natural or curly hair. What’s your stance on co-washing? To co-wash only or not?
Many swear by it. Some conditioners contain ingredients that have cleansing properties. But conditioners also have ingredients that leave particles on the hair. This can do more harm than good especially if silicone are present in the conditioner.
Shampoo is more ideal for cleansing hair. Shampoo contains ingredients that remove dirt and debris and as long as its a sulfate free shampoo it will not strip hair of natural oils.[ad#square-125×125]
Co-washing should not completely replace cleaning hair with shampoo. I recommend shampooing once a week to maintain healthy hair and scalp.
