What is Co-Washing and Why is it Good for Black Hair?

co-washing black hairWhat is co-washing? Hair stylists are getting this question a lot these days as more and more women hear the phrase and wonder what it is and whether it’s right for their hair. In case you haven’t heard about this hair care tip, our Marietta salon will break it down for you. Co-washing is simply washing your hair with conditioner instead of shampoo.

Why co-wash?

Washing your hair with shampoo too often is a recipe for dry, damaged hair, and as you probably know, black hair is often prone to dryness anyway. But what are you supposed to do between shampoos when you still need to cleanse? Co-washing is a great solution because it will get you feeling fresh while still nourishing and protecting your hair. This method cuts down on color damage and frizz, while also hydrating your hair.

What should you use to co-wash?

If you’d like to try co-washing your hair, try a cleansing conditioner that will get your hair clean while still moisturizing the hair strand. But remember, even with co-washing you probably don’t need to wash your hair every night. It’s important to understand your hair in order to take better care of it, so be sure to check out our post on 5 ways to care for your curly hair.
