What is a co-wash?

Post  TheAlphaFemale on Mon Jan 11, 2010 4:51 pm

What exactly is a co-wash? I've seen many posters say that they did a co-wash before they used certain products, but I'm uncertain exactly what a co-wash really is and what a co-wash consists of.

Can anyone please explain? Rolling Eyes

Co-Wash

Post  jerseygirl17 on Mon Jan 11, 2010 5:01 pm

Co-washing is when you wash your hair with conditioner only (I'm about to co-wash my hair now) Laughing Mae and other forums recommend this instead of using shampoo weekly to keep your hair moisturized. You can also use baking soda and apple cider vinegar as a rinse if you have a lot of build-up in your hair, but right now I'm going to stick to conditioner. Hope this helps!

Thanks JerseyGirl!

I always wondered what EXACTLY co-washing consisted of... and now I know!
I have been washing (or should I say "co-washing") my hair for years and didn't know it was called a co-wash.
I have recently been using Ms. Jessies Creme-De-La-Curl Cleansing Creme as my ONLY wash because it works so well for detangling my curls, waves & "springs"!! It doesn't foam and it softens my hair so wonderfully.

Once again, JerseyGirl... THANKS!

Co wash

Post  NaturaleRadiance on Wed Jan 13, 2010 4:46 am

Hey, since this forum already talks about co washing, which conditioners do you all use to co wash? I saw the creme de la curl, I've never tried that, but maybe i'll try it next december when they have their sale- im a broke post-grad :/.

What does every body else use and what results does it yield?

cowash vs shampoo

Post  keynotespeaker6 on Wed Jan 13, 2010 7:55 am

How often should one shampoo their hair? I have heard different things. Is once or twice a month effective? I'm slightly confused about the whole cowashing part. Also, when during the transition is it best to start cowashing vs shampooing & conditioning?

Msangie here from London UK Smile

What are the best conditioners to use to co-wash while transitioning? I'm currently using the Joico Silk Result shampoo and conditioner but may just use the conditioner going forward if it helps with softness.

Also how often do you co-wash. I have been doing mine once per week, is this too often?

Co-wash condish

Post  vakeshia on Mon Jan 18, 2010 11:59 am

I use VO5 to co-wash my hair and normally do it once or twice a week max. I maybe actually wash with shampoo every two weeks or whenever my hair feels really dirty. You will get a lot of suggestions on which conditioners to use but truth be told the cheap ones or just as good or even better than the more expensive ones. (in my opinion) I always follow up with a good thick deep conditioner though.
