When I first started co-washing, I thought initially that my hair was thinning. But for me, it was the result of clumping and the scalp showing a bit between the individual clumps. I went as far as counting the hair in the drain (eeew, gross I know!) to determine if I was shedding more than what is considered normal.

I agree with a lot of the other posters on this thread that you have to do what is good for YOU.

I realize what works for me may not work for other curlies and vice versa. Personally, I rotate co-washing with a low-poo or cleansing condish and that works well for me.
