Should You Be Co-washing Your Hair?

Have you been wondering what it means to co-wash your hair, or if you should try this popular hair care method? Or maybe you’re a long-time lover of co-washing and you’re curious about what makes Briogeo’s Curl Charisma Rice Amino + Shea Hydrating Co-Wash so special. Let’s explore!


What is co-washing?

Co-wash is short for “conditioning wash” or “washing with conditioner.” A co-wash is a deeply hydrating cleanser designed to help prolong time between traditional sudsing shampoos. 

Co-washes are really great for curls and coils, as these hair types tend to be drier and benefit from going longer between washes. Even if you don’t have curly hair, a co-wash could be a great addition to your routine if your hair is on the thicker or drier side, since this washing method can give a boost of slip and hydration while refreshing your hair.

If you’re curious about co-washing, give our Curl Charisma Rice Amino + Shea Hydrating Co-Wash a try. Not only does it provide a high-slip and hydrating cleanse, but it’s fortified with naturally powerful ingredients like:

- Rice amino acids to seal the hair cuticle to lock out environmental moisture that causes frizz

- Tomato fruit ferment to promote consistent curl pattern and enhance the vibrancy of each curl

- Shea butter and avocado oil infuse the hair with moisture and shine, leaving curls and coils refreshed, soft, and bouncy

Who should skip co-washing?

Co-washing isn’t for everyone–if your hair tends to be on the oilier side, co-washing may be too hydrating for you. If you have low porosity hair, you may want to steer clear as well, since it can be prone to product buildup. 

If you do find yourself wanting to incorporate co-washing into a routine, it’s important to remember to still use a traditional sudsing shampoo every other wash to prevent product buildup on your scalp and hair.
