"Some may think of washing without shampoo as gross, or as a less effective (or ineffective) way of cleansing the hair. Not true!"
Co-Washing is the act of washing your hair with conditioner as opposed to regular shampoo. Co-washing is preferred by the naturally curly community as a primary washing method because it is more gentle on curls and won't strip your hair of its natural oils. Washing hair with conditioner removes enough dirt and oil without drying out the hair. Learn more about co-washing by reading our articles, watching our videos, and exploring Curly Q&A.
