Help me out... what does "co-wash" mean? I've seen it in some of the threads but I'm lost on it.

Co-wash means washing hair with conditioner only, usually a moisturizing conditioner as it doesn't strip the hair like a shampooing would. Wink

how does it get clean? Wouldn't the conditioner build up on it?

conditioner actually has its own cleaning ingredients. some people actually never use shampoo on their hair.

Hi, I've actually found (what I think is) a great website on this...because I didn't know what it meant either until a few days ago! I'm not bi-racial so putting conditioner in my hair and leaving it does nothing for my huge afro...but the basic principles are the same, and her comments on the ingredients are interesting too.

thanks for the info.  I do that with my hair and with my curly lace fronts all the time.  I didn't know there was a special term for it!
