I have 4a-4c type hair annd I used to co-wash my hair EVERYDAY. In the first 5 months of my Natural Journey. But now, im down to once a week. If I keep a style in it, say two-strain twist, then I try and go 2 weeks with out putting water to it.

But there is something called Over Moisturizing... Which can make your hair very dry and brittle. This mainly happens when we use too much protein in our hair.. That is found in many Natural conditioners. Sooo I would Garnier Triple Moisture or Herbal Essence Hello-Hydration or Long-term Relationship. (Each one is under 6$ and can be purchased at Walgreen's, CVS, Target, Walmart)

But if you cannot stay away from the water Try using a water bottle to spray on your hair in the mornings followed by your leave-in conditioner and oil.

If I was still in my BC days then yes but almost 9 months later child pls!!!! I got thick hair and if I don't take care of it it will dry out. I'm better off not washing it everyday and just letting my hair wait at least a week.

Actually, over conditioning does not come from putting protein (which is NOT in ALL natural conditioners) in the hair; it is found when the hair's protein/moisture balance is off. An overabundance of protein makes the hair dry and brittle; too much moisture makes it soft and gummy.

+1 This is correct information. That previous post was not. I had to do a pt tonight because my hair was mushy from overconditioning/overmoisturizing. Protein treatments should always be followed by a moiturizing dc.

And you ain't the only one waiting. I slather on condish, leave it on way longer than they say, condition before shampooing and after. No over-conditioning for me. But having heard it described, I don't think I want to feel it.

I know of some people that cowash everyday. But my kinky hair would knot up something fierce from all that manipulation. Lmao

I agree with others. Do what works best for you. But this has been my experience also.

I have 4a/4b hair and I don't wash everyday, now the first 5 months I was natural I did, but now that I have more length to much manipulation means tangles! Even when I do wash, it takes me a good 30-45 minutes easy to detangle because my hair is sooo thick. Also, my hair shrinks up at least 80% when I wash it or get it completely wet. To minimize time, I shampoo 2x a month and co wash 2x a month.

I'm still just dependin on how much product I have in my hair is how often I wash b/c I don't wear wash and goes and that would prob be the only way I would wash more often.

I'd say it's ok to do so. Water is very good for the hair and if washing and conditioning it gives you the most moisture, I'd say go for it My hair loves being wet and I'm a type 4 all the way lol
