Co-Washing: The New Hair Routine

If you’re washing your hair every day, you should stop! Washing everyday can dry out your scalp and cause split ends. Shampooing your hair daily or even too frequently can actually be damaging to your hair. Instead of washing every day, try washing once a week. Shampoo can contain sulfates and/or parabens that strip the hair of its natural oils. There are alternative ways to wash your hair that includes less shampoo.


Would you believe me if I told you that you can still clean your hair without any shampoo at all? Yes that’s correct! You can achieve clean hair with a method called co-washing. Co-washing is, instead of washing your hair with shampoo, washing your hair with conditioner. Washing with conditioner won’t strip your hair while also proving a cleansing. Keep in mind that co-washing may not provide the squeaky clean feeling that shampoo does. I would suggest washing with shampoo at the beginning of each month and co-washing in between those times. This way your hair will still get that clean feeling without over doing the use of shampoo.
