Co-washing or conditioner only washing is a method used by many naturals to rinse their hair of existing product and sweat while adding moisture back into the hair. It is not a replacement for cleansing the hair, but this technique can be used between washes to avoid over-drying effects of shampoo. Check out this awesome info-graphic from YoungBlackNappy.
Love this InfoGraphic, it is BRILLIANT! I reblogged this post and shared on Derby City Naturals

So how often do you recommend washing the hair with shampoo? Also won’t my hair be dirtier with only conditioner and oil in it?
Great questions! I, personally don’t ever “recommend” traditional shampoo for natural hair. For some, it’s a preference, but you never “need” it for hair to be clean. Your scalp is what you should really focus on cleansing; normal shampoos will strip that AND your strands of beneficial natural oils.
When you cowash, you can rinse all the conditioner out if you’d like. My hair is very coarse and thick, so I always leave a bit in for extra moisture. Your hair won’t feel dirty unless you allow lots of sweat and product to build up over time.
This was very helpful.
I going to try to keep my 7yr old daughter’s hair natural and also encourage her to love on her natural
hair as she grows into adulthood.
I absolutely love this infograph! So informational! Love it!
Thank you! Feel free to share, too!

im new to the natural and loving it but im allergic to coconut oil what would you recommend instead
Sweet almond oil is one if my favorites outside of coconut. Still light, seals in moisture – and, hopefully you’re not allergic to it! Good luck!
