    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.

    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?

    • K. Ophelia says:

      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.

    Great infographic. Very useful. Thanks for sharing. These tips can help hair from damage. When there isn’t proper washing of hair, it may leads to damage or occurs tangles. Yes, if there isn’t proper washing of hair, shampoo and its chemicals will set on the roots of hair and that causes hair loss.
