I had tried the CG method off and on for years and always my looked stringy and oily. When I wash my hair, I want my hair to look like I've washed my hair, not like I haven't washed it in two weeks.
I tried the co-washing again, but this time I mix a tablespoon of baking soda with the conditioner. Then I rinse with either ACV & water or lemon juice & water. I'm not sure how CG it is but it works & my hair looks clean.
