Thank you for that! It might sound a little weird, but that is very reassuring for me. I've never done well with co-wash, and I thought that I was missing something. I even go for the sulfate shampoo once a month or so, and it makes a huge difference. My hair was a tangled frizzy mess a few days ago. I washed with sulfate shampoo that I grabbed from my straight-haired daughter's shower, and it did wonders. My hair is soft and so much less frizzy. Maybe it is from buildup (using no-cone conditioners and styling products), but I don't know. I've been rotating a few styling products while trying to find a good alternative to CJ (which is great, but I would like to find something that costs less), so it is difficult to guess which one is the problem.
