A substitute for Co-washing?

LoveCurlyLoveCurly Registered Users Posts: 2
Hello there (:
well I have a simple question.
I'm a 3b hair type & I was wondering is there a substitute for co-washing?
I love my big curly result after I co-wash but I hate the process every morning.
Is there another way I could make detangling easier & get the same result?
I've tried twist outs & braids out but they make my hair look dull and heavy.
HELP! PLEASE!

    I would love to be of some help but I'm unclear as to what you are asking. What is it that you are trying to achieve? And what is it that you are not liking about co-washing.
    Hair: 3a, normal porosity and elasticity
    My hair loves: Vatika and Bhringraj oils, adores henna.
    My HGs: Bobeam's shampoo bars, CJAO, CJRM, Original Moxie's Hair Bling, Terressentials,

    U can use a sulfate free shampoo ? im not really sure what ur trying to ask, but in the morning if u spray ur hair lightly with water, detangle with either a light slip conditioner like vo5 or suave, or apply a leave in conditioner like carols daughter, creme of nature, loreal etcc ... and then apply ur other products and either diffuse or airdry ...

    I am trying to achieve a fresh curly look without having to co-wash everyday. It's almost impossible to get second or third day hair with my type of curly hair because it easily frizzes & looses it's shine almost over night, so instead of co-washing every morning to get that same fresh look, I was trying to look for an alternative (:

    you can use reg. spray bottle with water and ur gel or your styling products and it will revitalize ur curls just as well

    This might be the way to go! Not sure where you live but here in the NY area its getting cold so keeping hair moisturzed is important. I have been researching various posts here as well YT vids for spritzer options and have pretty much gathered everything that I could possibly need to make my refreshing & moisturizing spritz: conditioner, Rosewater w/glycerin and oils. Now its a matter of which oils I use (jojoba, almond, evoo, grapeseed or coconut) and compiling the right mix so that its just enough to do what I need it to do to refresh without overdoing it that I'm having to start over from scratch.

    Am noticing increased "chatter" regarding spritzes in general so it may be worth considering and compiling products that work well on YOUR hair as well as climate. For instance, some people put gels in their spritz which is something I would be more likely to do for a spring/summer spritz as my winter styling method will give me all the hold I need without including a gel which is a totally different case during the warm/ hot & humid months.
