What’s All the Co-Washing Buzz About?
By 0 Comments|
Like me, you might be hearing all types of buzz surrounding the co-washing/cleansing conditioning craze and wondering what its all about.
Co-washing, or cleansing conditioning, got its start as a part of the Curly Girl Method. It is a component of the “no poo movement,” which is the no shampoo method of caring for your hair.
Because these conditioners contain little to no detergents which can often leave hair dry, brittle or damaged, many people have made the decision to swap traditional shampoos for more gentle cleansers with little or no sulfate at all. In addition, their super-conditioning formulas make them especially ideal for women with thick or curly hair to help maintain moisture. Sounds appealing no?
So in an effort to embrace this new trend and see what all the hype is about, I’ve recently ditched shampoos altogether, and am trying cleansing conditioners instead.
For those that are ready to take the plunge with me, here are my top 3 picks:
