Conditioner Washing/ Co-Washing

So I had been really intrigued by the whole "Wen Cleansing Conditioner" commercial and the recent youtube videos on it but really who wants to spend that much money on a conditioner? I dunno, just seems silly to rinse your money down the drain, literally. So I decided to look up some cheaper alternatives and came across a phenomenon called Conditioner Washing or Co-Washing for short.

Pretty much this entailed the same thing as the whole Wen brand, using a conditioner to cleanse the hair, leaving it cleaned but not dried out. Sounded amazing to me and my dry, course, thick, color treated, crazy hair. I immediately researched as much as I could and tried it out. I have been doing it for over 2 months now and I am so pleased with it I just had to share. My hair is is so much better condition and for only a $1.00! WOW! I'm in love! haha

****I really recommend trying this out if you have dry, damaged, course, color-treated, chemical-treated, frizzy, (any of the above) hair!****

If you want to try it out you will need:

  • 1 Cheapo Conditioner (Suave Milk and Honey is the most recommended. I stole my husbands Suave for Men Strengthening Conditioner and it worked amazingly so I'm going to stick with that. Both are only $1.00 US) It has to be not a very good or moisturizing conditioner. If the conditioner is too good your hair will just turn out oily. This happened to me when I tried the Suave Fresh Mountain Strawberries Conditioner, it is not a good choice. Other ones I have heard work well are the V05 Moisture Milks Conditioner.
  • 1 Good Conditoner for Your Dry Ends. Does not have to be expensive. I like the Herbal Essences Hello Hydration it's only 3$.

Co-Washing How To:

1. Pick up one of the cheap conditioners I have recommended above.

2. While in shower, place a pretty good amount of cheap conditioner in hands and work into roots all over head. ONLY ROOTS! Be very careful not to work through the rest of your hair. That is what the good conditioner is for.

3. Scrub roots vigorously for about 5 minutes with conditioner. Do not skimp out on this step the scrubbing is what gets your hair clean. If you don't scrub well enough you won't get your hair clean.

4. Rinse out that cheap conditioner VERY thoroughly. VERY thoroughly, if not the hair will be left oily and lifeless.

5. Add a good conditioner, (does not have to be expensive, I use Herbal Essences Hello Hydration 3$ a bottle) JUST TO THE ENDS OF THE HAIR NONE ON TOP, If you add more conditioner on top your hair will be oily.

6. Wash your body, shave etc.

7. Rinse Good conditioner from ends very well and get out the the shower. Pretty Simple, huh? :D

NOTE: ******If your hair turns out oily either you didn't scrub well enough or you didn't rinse well enough, or the cheapo conditioner you are using is to good. This will not work if you use a good conditioner in place of the cheapo one. :D*****

Hope you guys enjoyed this post on Conditioner Washing. Thanks for stopping by!

I used to do this, I should start again! I used the Vo5 Vanilla Mint tea conditioner and it worked great. I started doing it every other day, and after a while, I was only shampooing my hair once a week! It really helped with the health of my hair, as well as helping haircolor last longer.

My hair was none of the above but it was excessively oily recently. My though was that maybe I was sucking too much moisture from my hair so I gave this a shot...I am really surprised. So far,so good and I am really hoping that this will reset the "oil meter" for my scalp! Thanks!

I'm just curious, where do you find Suave's Milk and Honey? I haven't been able to find it anywhere and I love the scent.

For normal hair use any good quality shampoo and conditioner that have a perfect balance. Always rinse your hair after applying shampoo and conditioner completely. If you do not do that it will give you an itchy scalp and dry hair. Do not be afraid of your hairstyle ruined off. Always use a small amount of shampoo on your wet hair. You can use warm water for shampooing but for conditioner it is better to use cold water. Massage the scalp gently and than rinse completely. Do not use the conditioner in the hair roots as it can cause hair fall. Just apply it on your hair and after 3-4 minutes wash it thoroughly. Hot water and cold water help the scalp to be toned up. After washing it dry it up with a towel or by a dryer. Do not rub your scalp as it can damage your hair cuticles and hair roots. Always shampoo your hair when it is necessary because excessive hair wash can strip your hair off the essential oil, which is necessary for normal shiny hair.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started to get real money.
It gets down to select a correct partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the profit with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.

Weather is a set of all the phenomena occurring in a given atmosphere at a given time. Most weather phenomena occur in the troposphere, just below the stratosphere. Weather refers, generally, to day-to-day temperature and precipitation activity, whereas climate is the term for the average atmospheric conditions over longer periods of time. When used without qualification, "weather" is understood to be the weather of Earth.

A banks is a financial institution that accepts deposits and channels those deposits into lending activities. Bank primarily provide financial services to customers while enriching investors. Government restrictions on financial activities by banks vary over time and location. Banks are important players in financial markets and offer services such as investment funds and loans. In some countries such as Germany, banks have historically owned major stakes in industrial corporations while in other countries such as the United States banks are prohibited from owning non-financial companies. In Japan, banks are usually the nexus of a cross-share holding entity known as the keiretsu. In France, bancassurance is prevalent, as most banks offer insurance services (and now real estate services) to their clients.

The level of government regulation of the banking industry varies widely, with countries such as Iceland, having relatively light regulation of the banking sector, and countries such as China having a wide variety of regulations but no systematic process that can be followed typical of a communist system.[url=http://projectcontrol.v3host.nl]CLICK HERE[/url]

Thanks for the tips, Erica. My hair is super frizzy, and I've been spending too much money on products that claim to get rid of it. I'm going to try co-washing! My question is, how often do you co-wash? Every day? Every other day? I normally shampoo my hair every other day, but I've never tried co-washing before and want the best results. Thanks again!
