Cyclo-cones evaporate off of the hair during the drying process, so yes, you can stick to co-washing. (because of the evaporation process, some people might notice a bit of dryness, but thats never been an issue for me). As far as frequency for cleansing, it's completely a personal choice. I cleanse my hair daily, sometimes with conditioner, sometimes with low-poo (and even the occasional gentle sulfate shampoo). I do martial arts training 4-5 days a week for 2-4 hours, so I prefer to cleanse daily. There's no right or wrong- it's all about figuring out what works for your hair. And while there's lots of focus on curl pattern around here, it's really your hair properties (texture, porosity, etc) that will determine the types of products and ingredients that will work best for your hair.
