Some days ago, we talked about co-washing here, but after that I came across three YouTube videos recently. Two were titled "Co-washing Your Hair is Unhealthy" and the other was "Stop Co-Washing Your Hair It's Not Healthy".
Now headlines like those are sure to grab your attention, especially if you are new to healthy hair care, and you are trying to soak up all the information you can get to build a great regimen. After all, no one wants to walk around with mildew for hair.
Basically the YouTuber Nappy2Straight made definite statements on the practice of co-washing. Many naturals swear by co-washing, so you can imagine the backlash she got for suggesting that co-washers are nasty and walk around with stinky heads.
The reason I want to talk about co-washing is that I didn't think any of the videos adequately addressed why you might not want to do a co-wash.
It got me thinking that if I was a newbie, I'd still have unanswered questions since she didn't tell me on what basis she formed her opinion. So today I want to shed some light on the matter to help those in the experimental stage, or those who are new to the healthy hair journey alleviate the concerns they might have with regards to co-washing.
