Skip The Suds A New Way To Wash

A New Way To Wash

Lather. Rinse. Repeat. Some routines are made to be broken – especially when there’s a new beauty trend to try. Time to give co-washing a shot. The buzzed-about haircare innovation is all about more benefits and less fuss.

What is co-washing?

It’s short for “conditioner-only washing.” You skip the shampoo and only use conditioner, whether you’re a daily or weekly washer. Co-washing is a gentle way to cleanse hair without drying your scalp or stripping your locks of natural oils.

What does it do?

It gives you a soft, second-day hair look that’s easy to manage. The key is using special cleansing conditioners that are created to clean your hair while adding moisture and hydration. You may see a boost in shine and smoothness. Plus, your color lives on longer.

Who can get in on the craze?

Nearly everyone! It was once a secret of those with naturally curly hair, because textured hair tends to be drier than straight hair. But now with lots of options (including our picks below), you’ll find a new way to clean that’s just your type. If you have fine or straight hair, try a hair rinse instead of a co-wash for a gentle clean that doesn’t leave buildup.
