To answer one of your questions, I co-wash once every 4 days. Some people do it only once a week, some people do it every other day.
And yes, your hair can get clean from just conditioner. This is an excerpt from Laura Lee's Guide to Going CG:
"HOW DOES CONDITIONER GET YOUR HAIR CLEAN?
Conditioners contain surfactants, just like shampoo. The difference is that the surfactants in conditioners are not anywhere near as harsh and drying on your hair as sulfate surfactants are. These gentle “secondary surfactants” will lift off dirt, oil, and grime from your hair and leave it perfectly clean with some manual friction. Scrub your hair with conditioner, and it will get clean. Common secondary surfactants are cocamidopropyl betaine, sulfosuccinate, hydroxysultaine, and lauryl polyglucose."
