What is co-washing?

Conditioner or co-washing is a method of cleansing your hair with conditioner. Co-washing uses non-ionic surfactants such as cetyl alcohol, as it’s main surfactant.

People with curly or sensitive skin can use co-washing daily or several times a week, as it is less damaging to the hair shaft than shampooing.

Co-washing can prevent the breakage of hair and also balance sebum production. It can also reduce dryness. However, there are no scientific data to prove this.

Over time, conditioner use can lead to the build-up of dirt and oil due to improper cleaning. Therefore, shampoos should be uses at least once or twice a month.
