6. Great for little kids
If your toddler suffers from severely dry hair incorporating cowashing can save your life. Detangling is much easier, you child’s hair will be much softer.
Look for cowash products for your child as well and we would suggest not using conditioners with cones on children. If your child is like mine then the last thing they need is cones on top of, pancake syrup, strawberries and ketchup!
7. Do not co wash after swimming
When swimming, your need to drench your hair and add conditioner to your strands however after you are done with the pool and the beach you will need to shampoo.
Shampoo to remove chemical buildup and salt from your hair and strands that cling to your hair after swimming.
8. Leave a little in
if you co wash with high quality products leaving a little in on your ends for extra moisture does not hurt especially if you plan to spend the day out.
Hot days with high heat exposure from the sun can dry out your hair so along with physically protecting your ends you can also help by leaving a little conditioner on your strands.
9. You will still need a leave in
Most of us use leave in conditioner(affiliate link) even after a cowash. Some of us actually leave in regular conditioner as mentioned in number 8.
If you aren’t into that then using a leave in is also highly recommended. Curly hair thrives on moisture so do not skip that step if your hair is dry.
10. Cowashing might not be for you
There are a million women out there that will tell you that cowashing is not for them. They prefer to shampoo weekly and style for the week. There is nothing wrong with that as a matter of fact if you are a heat styler you might not ever cowash because your regimen just does not call for it.
If you deep condition every week there might be no need for a mid week spruce up, it all depends on your preference and lifestyle.
