    How are you using it? I think I've seen people on here who've had issues with odor didn't use the conditioner wash like a shampoo. You have to use it just like you would a shampoo and work a little bit harder. You need to really make sure that you're scrubbing your scalp very well to help break down any oil and residue on the scalp. Then you must rinse really well to make sure you remove all the conditioner and any dirt/oil/product residue that it's removing. After that you need to use a "rinse out conditioner' and you would use that like you would any conditioner. But your co wash needs to scrub your scalp really really well.

    Maybe he doesn't like the smell of that conditioner? I have a few hair products that my husband doesn't like the smell of. He'll sniff and sniff that air and ask, "What's that smell?" "My hair." "No, it smells bad." "It's my hair, sniff it." "Yuck."

    I may not be scrubbing well. My hair is thin though and I am afraid of breaking it. It may just take a little time to get used to cg?
    I did think about the co. I had him smell it and he likes it. Lol dont you wish that you could smell your own hair :) .

    You definitely need to be thoroughly massaging with the tips of your fingers (not your nails) much more than with shampoo. Also you might want to try a brown sugar scrub to get rid of scalp build up. Just mix a little condish with the sugar and rub your scalp.

    If you're massaging your scalp thoroughly (and not the length of your hair), then you won't be doing much - if any - damage at all. :) It might also be helping your scalp's health by increasing blood flow, which naturally leads to healthier growth. :D

    Sorry, I'm kinda new to the whole CG thing (having only decided to try it a few hours ago) But could someone explain what co-wash means please?

    Make sure you check out the sticky thread at the top of this forum for all the acronyms we use. :)

    Co-washing is using conditioner to remove buildup from the hair and scalp. HTH!
