What is/How do you RO?

Ok, here it goes: I read more or less what a rinse-out is: a better quality conditioner used after cowash?

Can someone explain the routine of RO better and what is the purpose of it...?

Thanks!

Its purpose is to moisturize.
I only use my CO-wash on my scalp so a RO condish adds the moisture and is also what I use for the detangling step. I let it soak in for 3-5 minutes before rinsing.
If you only need light moisture a typical CO-wash type conditioner might be just fine. I like a richer RO and also use it as my LI.
Medium-fine Texture, Normal Porosity, Normal Elasticity, Thick Density
Co-wash: Renpure Body&Shine
RO: Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner
LI/Curl Enhancer: Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner
Other: I'll add a little AG Mousse Gel if I want something extra.
So the RO is to be used on your ends after cowashing with (ex: V05, Suave, etc) from the mid-shaft down...?

I use it root to tip.

In my pre-cg days I did a regular sulfate shampoo followed by conditioner. Now it's a CO-wash followed by conditioner. Used exactly the same way as I've always used conditioner; root to tip application, finger comb to remove loose hairs and allowed to soak in for 3-5 minutes before fully rinsing.

So pretty much however you used conditioner in the past should still work.
Medium-fine Texture, Normal Porosity, Normal Elasticity, Thick Density
Co-wash: Renpure Body&Shine
RO: Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner
LI/Curl Enhancer: Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner
Other: I'll add a little AG Mousse Gel if I want something extra.
Ah I see...Thank you : )

My cowash conditioner is generally not quite as moisturizing and thick as my rinse out conditioner. That way it is easier to distribute and massage into my scalp.

My rinse out conditioner is usually more moisturizing but not always super thick. I rake it through my hair from a couple inches from my scalp to the roots.
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

rinse out: CJ Beauticurls, CJ A&OO, CJ Smoothing

jellies/creams: Mop C, KCCC, SCE FSG
gels: CJ CQ, BRHG

Great info, thanks.
