What’s Co-Washing?

(Co-wash) Conditioner wash; washing hair with conditioner instead of shampoo.

Conditioning is essential to having moisturized hair. Conditioners add moisture and help reduce frizz by penetrating and coating the hair follicles. Follow the directions on the bottle and make sure to rinse with cool or cold water instead of hot. This helps lock in shine and moisture. It is also a good idea to use a deep conditioner at least once a week, paying particular attention to the ends of hair, which are the driest and can often split.

How To Co-wash 

You need to have a lot of conditioner since you will be washing your hair often using conditioner. Any conditioner will do. However when you deep conditioner your hair you should use a better quality type of conditioner.
You can wash as often as everyday or a few times a week. Washing in the shower is easiest. Just like you would use your shampoo, use the conditioner instead. You want to really saturate your hair with conditioner. The thicker your hair is, the more conditioner you should use. Massage it into your hair well.
