A lot of people starting on their healthy hair journey don't know what the hell to do with their hair. I know when I first started I was confused and was using anything on my hair.

hey Belle!
I was wondering what exactly is co-washing? And what is your hair care regimen?

Hey Thick Chick A,
Co-washing, or Conditioner Washing, is basically washing your hair with a conditioner instead of a shampoo. Shampoos tend to be more harsh so many people opt for conditioner washing since you can do it everyday (if you choose). My regimen is pretty simple... I co-wash almost everyday (sometimes I get lazy and don't), I shampoo once a week and deep conditon once. I use a leave-in every time I co-wash and/or shampoo. I take an Iron supplement everyday since I'm anemic. I also massage my scalp and do protective styles all the time. For more co-washing info, check out the Hairology section. Thanks for posting!

@Anonymous This post is super old! I do use styling gels as a natural. I use Kinky-Curly Curling Custard and Luster's Texturizer Stylin' Gel.
