Shampoo every wash?

Like Tree2Likes

I've noticed that when I don't shampoo when I wash my hair, my hair always looks worse than when I do. I use Shea Moisture MR shampoo and conditioner. Should I use their cowash conditioner when I cowash or should I just shampoo Everytime I wash?
I shampoo every time i wash too. When I don't my hair gets weighed down. So far it has always worked for me and I don't use cg shampoos usually
Medium texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity
So it's not bad? Cuz everyone says to not shampoo a lot, but I only wash every other day. When I cowash it it flat and frizzy....I'll probably just try shampooing every time.
I shampoo every time as well. I use a sulfate free shampoo. It's only bad to shampoo a lot if you're using a damaging shampoo that has sulfates or other harsh detergents.
Shea butter can build up, it's not well suited to co-washing IMO.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG. Past bra strap length heading for waist.

CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen
Treatments: Komaza Care Matani, coconut/ sweet almond oils, Hairveda Sitrinillah
Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss Ultimate Volume, various Elvive
Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Boots Essentials gel
Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
Experimenting with: benign neglect

I shampoo every time I wash. My hair does not like cowashing. It's not "bad" if it works for your hair. Everyone is different, do what works. If you're going to cowash, I'd go with a lighter conditioner though.

You have to do what works. Just use the gentlest shampoo you can get away with.

Does KC come clean work well for daily shampooing?
Medium texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity
I like KC Come Clean, but I find it very strong. I use it as an occasional clarifier. I use Yes To Cucumbers Color Protection shampoo (the sulfate free one) almost every wash. My hair likes to be clean. I tend to get build up otherwise.
Salt & pepper wavy mix 2B/2C
Low to normal porosity, coarse, kinky, normal elasticity
Current favorites:
Low poo: Yes To Cukes Color Protection (the no sulfate one)
Conditioners: Renpure MPHIP, CJ Smoothing Lotion, AB LI, CJ Curl Rehab, CJ Argan/Olive, Darcy's Pumpkin
Style: FSG, BRHG
Pre-poo/DT: Conditioner with honey & coconut oil

iHerb discount code: PNQ285

I found out that my frizz came from using sulfate free shampoo. Cowashes are not designed to lather as the lather from shampoo is what strips the hair of oils in addition to the detergents and sulfates. I clarify occasionally but I don't use a sulfate free shampoo any more.

I don't cowash. I use shampoo daily. Today I tried to cowash and my scalp is very oily. Not doing that again

sKorpio, have you tried the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus shampoo? That's the only shampoo that I have been able to use at every wash and it leaves my hair so soft! I use it as a face wash as well, it's that good. Although I do have to use YTCucs once week or week and a half for any buildup issues starting. But heck, if it works.

No I haven't. I'm assuming it's sulfate free?

Yeah, it's silicone and sulfate free! I use the Moisture Renewing shampoo by Shea moisture and I love it! I'm planning on buying the coconut and hibiscus curl and shine one next
The only reason I hesitate is because I used one of their products in my hair before and it weighed it down and made it oily
