Well this is definitely something to be aware of if people are experiencing issues. I co wash but I only actually scrub my scalp when I need to. Usually I have to detangle frequently to get rid of the loose hair so I will wet my hair and apply conditioner from my ears down but not really on my scalp. Then I just detangle with loads of conditioner and a wide tooth comb and let the water rinse through my scalp and that's it. I haven't noticed any negative side effects when I do co wash except that my hair feels great.
