If you’ve spent time on Pinterest over the past year you’ve probably heard of Co-Washing. Odds are that you already know that “Co-Wash” is simply shorthand for “Conditioning Wash”, and often entails ditching traditional shampoo in favor of a cleansing conditioner.
The part you might have missed? The history! This methodology has been around for a while: Chaz Dean’s Wen haircare has been around since the 90’s, and the method itself is very popular with people textured/curly hair. The “No ‘Poo” movement has been gaining momentum as photos of Pantene-worthy hair pop up across Pinterest with inspirational captions about moisturized tresses and frizz-free locks.
If you love the way you look with next-day hair, or even if you just like skipping a day or two (or three, or four) between shampoos, Co-Washing can be a great addition to your routine. So if you have dry hair, color-treated hair, curly, coily, wavy or textured hair, give Co-Washing a try! Aveda makes an incredible Co-Wash using Plant & Flower Extracts that smells amazing – and it’s available for purchase at Craig Stewart Salon or online.
