The co-washing crazy seems to be dying down now. Whilst I never believed the hype, I did try them out. It took me a while to actually get a co-wash. I only got one last year which was the Cantu Cowash which I wasn’t so fussed about! After trying a few more last year, for me it’s just hype and never replaced my traditional shampoo.
Which Shampoo Should I Use?
There’s a lot of different shampoos for diff hair concerns e.g. moisturising shampoos for dry hair, clarifying shampoos for excessive build up. I try not to be too particular with these and almost always get moisturising ones. For my texture (4c) which tends to be dry, I always need all the moisture I can get.
What About Sulfates? Should I Get A Sulfate Free Shampoo?
Basically sulfates are responsible for the lather in shampoos and have been known to dry out hair too, try to go for a sulfate free shampoo if you can (a lot of the newer shampoos still sud up quite well without sulfates) however don’t beat yourself up because you found out your fav shampoo has sulfates. It won’t hurt because you’re going to follow up with a conditioner! P.s some shampoos that has left my hair really soft has had sulfates in it compared to the ones that didn’t. No shade though lol
