Co Washing Hair Exclusively is Not Beneficial
Co-washing your hair exclusively is not beneficial. I know I will be stepping on some toes on this one. However, I do have concerns that solely relying on Co-washing is setting the hair for limitations. Co-washing helps with restoring moisture back into your hair and making it soft. It also helps to smooth the cuticles to lay them flat.
Co-washing exclusively does not get rid of oils and build-up of products used on the hair. This is where cleansing your hair either with a clarifying shampoo, a sulfate shampoo or a formulated clay once to twice a month will prove beneficial for the hair. It’s basically given your strands a fresh start to "breathe" not feeling "choked" with left behind products on hair, and giving the strands the opportunity to allow better flow of moisture to enter in. One of the issue with co-washing only, for some individuals, the hair is prone to product build-up. Overtime, you may notice curls are not as defined, holding up well, even after using the same products as before. You might want to consider using a moisturizing shampoo or a clarifying shampoo.Co-washing only can potentially lead to scalp issues, such as itchy scalp. Sweat, oils, and products left on the scalp need to be cleansed to maintain a healthy clean scalp. Last thing we want are clogged follicles, which can lead to potential hair breakage or gradual hair loss.
