Co-washing

Co-washing can be an alternative if you have extremely dry hair or need mid-week cleansing. Using a shampoo twice or more a week can strip off your natural oils & to avoid/minimize it, co-wash mid-week then shampoo weekly to get rid of the dirt & product build up. Here are cleansing co-washes for natural hair.
