Wash…or Co-Wash? That is the Question!
What IS co-wash? Why use co-wash? No matter what your question is, we are here to answer. Co-wash is a quickly growing and relatively new category of hair product to most companies.
Breaking it down simply, the co- is a light weight conditioner and the wash is a gentle cleanser that removes odour and dirt from the hair, but leaves behind your natural oils. We use co-wash on the days that we shower, but don’t want to shampoo. Your hair feels so great post co-wash, but it is the real world and you still must shampoo once to twice weekly with a texture specific shampoo — as you always have.
The unique ingredients of all co-wash will give you these specific benefits as a whole:
- substantive conditioning
- reduced flyaways
- wet slip & detangling
- thermal protection
- increased colour retention
- added moisture
- smooth flexibility without weight
- surface slip
- no side effects
- water solubility
Specific co-washes that are texture specific for the individual needs of your hair are:
