Default Confused

Hi everyone!
I'm new and really confused... What us co-washing? Is it just using conditioner or what? And what/how do you plop (idk how to spell it?)? I have around 3a hair....any suggestions?

Plopping is one of my favorite methods! It gives me great curls -- better than just scrunching with my microfiber towel and airdrying! Here's a link:

Thanks for the links! But I am kinda worried...if I co-wash will my hair still be "cleaned"?

Your hair will still get cleaned. Be sure to massage your scalp really well with the conditioner and while rinsing to loosen and wash away the dirt and move the oils down your hair. Be sure to use a "cone" free conditioner. I like tresseme naturals.
