Hey Ya’ll! It’s Erica! So I have been experimenting with co-washing again. “Co-washing is something that you do not something you buy.”- Anthony Dickey The technique is very important. So here is how I co-wash my hair.
Section hair into two parts
Finger detangle under water
Apply conditioner to hair shaft and ends (I focus on my ends the most)
Let it sit for about 5-10 min and then rinse
The mistake that I made in the past was putting the conditioner on my scalp. Conditioners do not belong on the scalp; just the hair shaft and ends. It caused so much build up that I had to clarify with Dr. Bronners several times. That was the only shampoo that would thoroughly removed all of that build up.
Co-washing can be a good addition to your hair routine if done properly. It will never replace shampoo but it can keep the curls poppin’ in between wash days.
Do you co-wash? What is your favorite conditioner to use?!?
