CoWashing

The term “Cowashing” refers to using conditioner instead of shampoo to wash one’s hair. Lots of shampoos contain harmful sulfataes to that rob hair of essential oils and sometimes we take too much from our hair not knowing and we don’t put it back. Cowashing is a good way to clean your scalp of product build up while moisturizing as well. I cowash every 2-3 days and can go weeks without shampooing. This month I learned you should wash once a week with a sulfate free shampoo and once a month with a clarfying shampoo. The difference is the sulfate free shampoo will clean your hair and scalp and free it from dirt and oil build up but a clarifying shampoo cleans your scalp from product build up which can be the cause of why your regular hair regimen stops working as effectively.
