So Long Shampoo: Why You Should Try Co-Washing Your Hair

Washing hair to ditching shampoo for products like olive oil or baking soda. Then there are those who swear by only rinsing strands with water. With so many options and some being admittedly smellier than others (looking at you, apple cider vinegar), it’s daunting to know where to start and whether any of them are actually right for you.

Co-washing, aka washing with cleansing conditioners only, is another option that has been gaining popularity over the past few years. Co-washing works best for anyone with coarse, dry or curly hair . Those with fine hair will want to proceed with caution because co-washing can make hair flatter and oilier. However, Nick Arrojo, owner and founder of ARROJO, encourages everyone to try co-washing if they’re interested because all hair types are different. He recommends experimenting with co-washing in the winter when hair is drier and usually needs extra hydration.
