10 Co-Washing Problems: (3) Should You Do “Pure” Co-Washing?
Alright! You’ve got your conditioner and you are ready to start using it for washing. The problem is, “do you have to do pre-poo before Co-Washing or DC after Co-washing?”, do you do tea rinses/apple cider vinegar rinses after co-washing? or would the wash be solely just a conditioner wash?
I know of ladies who pre-poo before conditioner so the wash doubles the moisture content in the hair. Others also choose to deep condition after co-washing. Both methods are great ways of boosting moisture in the hair! I tend to do the latter sometimes too if I want to avoid shampooing more than once in a week yet want to deep condition. But this is not my favourite so I prefer to use an instant deep conditioner such that I get clean and moisturized hair at the same time.
Whichever technique you opt for depends on how much moisture you are targeting and how often you want to co-wash; this leads us to our problem 4! Stay tuned for it!
