When I started cowashing 4 years ago, I noticed a definite increase in hair loss. I figured it was just shed hair that wasn't coming out due to products in my hair. When I stopped cowashing a couple of years ago, I lost much less hair even though I was still using products. A few weeks ago a tried cowashing again for about a week. I lost a LOT of hair. No more cowashing for me.

Did the hair that you lost grow back normally?

The suds travel down my length as I'm rinsing it out and that gets my length very clean without any dryness. It works for me.
2C/3A, fine, higher porosity.
