Hello, I am new and this is my first post.
Anyway, I just re-started a few days ago. I do it on and off (on when I actually care about my hair--I plan on doing this permanently now). I have really oily hair normally, and at first my hair just seemed to be getting grosser and greasier. I actually had a small freak-out when I realized that my fine, 3a curls were so gross they had turned into oily, limp waves. Bleh.
But today I used a "cleansing conditioner" and mixed it with baking soda and my hair bounced right up again. My mother told me I should not use a leave-in conditioner. My hair, although somewhat damaged from coloring, benefits more from overnight coconut oil that I can rinse out with conditioner the next day than leave-in stuffs. I am looking forward to my hair getting more tightly curled, since that is what it has been doing. It's been drinking the coconut oil, I think
Good luck. We'll see where this co-washing brings us.
