    As long as your hair doesn't end up over conditioned there's no harm in daily co-washing. I've always cleansed my hair daily, sometimes co-washing, sometimes low-poo, and my hair is still in excellent condition.

    When I first started CG I was cowashing daily for a few weeks bc I was doing a lot of experimenting. My hair didn't get overconditioned but if yours does, just throw in the occasional low poo or clarifier.

    Your hair ends up very soft- mushy is the best way to describe it. Some people see increased frizz that looks like the strands of hair are repelling each other. Curl pattern will usually also appear looser. People with finer texture and/or lower porosity hair seem to be most susceptible, but it can happen with other hair types as well.
