I have heard of washing with just conditioner. But i use a lot of moisturizers like olive oil on my hair everyday to obviously keep it nice and moisturized so it wont break off again. Do u think conditioner will wash the oils and dirt out my hair as effectively as shampoo?

the shampoo os whats going to remove the traces of oils and other products from the hair,i believe the conditioner will actually soften the hair and maybe even provid ebounce and shine

the only issue that i have when it comes to cowashing is i would need to use some sort of heat to straighten my hair.i work in the public eye so i cant go to work looking crazy with pouffy hair...i have however been airdrying for the past two weeks and i like the outcome.its just my hir isnt looking anything like the girls on fotki with natural hair when they can just wash and go.....

I have decided to try co-washing for the summer months by alternating with shampoo every 5 days. I have tons of conditioner i need to use up.

Ace I feel you on not being able to cowash/wash and go. It worked when i was natural and I rocked a 'fro. But my 2 textures do not mix too well.

Thankfully I do not have to look "fly" or even presentable to go to work...LOL. I just have to show up, so I can leave my hair in my 2 pigtails and go to work.

I hope to start seeing results soon from cowashing and everything else.

Ace when my all natural I dreaded Sunday nights and trying to figure out what to do with my hair for the work week. The tangles can be dreadful when you do not know the proper to care for your natural hair. But mine grew so nicely and the afro puff was amazing until it got out of control.

Uuh yeah it's called a co-wash. I have been doing this for yrs...as far as the WEN it's to expensive. You can use Hair One sold at Sally's which is a knock off and just as good if not better so I've heard from other ppl who have tried both products. Very Happy
