Default Can I

Can I do the co wash all in one step? Like clean my scalp then work it to the ends and just rinse my scalp and leave what is left in the ends?

I believe you should rinse completely after you COwash to remove any loosened crud.

I usually do it like that, but I make sure to rinse well, and then I use a leave-in on the ends. It seems to be conditioning enough for my hair, but I'm not sure what it would be like on longer hair.

You can do what ever you want.

You can do this, but I doubt if your hair will be very clean afterwards, if this is your only cleansing method. Whatever gunk that you remove from your scalp will get stuck in your hair if you don't rinse it clean.

A lot of people do a one step routine- usually called a "co-rinse", but they tend to have a less frequent main cleansing method to go along with it. Co-washing/shampooing with a nonsulfate shampoo once a week, and a rinse-apply conditioner-rinse method on other days, would be one of many possible examples.

That's what I do too, as my hair can get over-conditioned other wise.
