Does Co-Washing Cause Hair Loss and Dandruff?

Discover the myth about co-washing with The Hair Addict

The term co-washing might be familiar to you, as this technique has become quite popular over the past few years. Co-washing stands for “conditioner washing”, which means using conditioner to cleanse your hair instead of a traditional shampoo. You might have also heard various opinions against this technique which claims that it can cause hair loss and dandruff, and you’re probably wondering if there is any truth to this fact. The natural haircare industry leader, The Hair Addict is here to clear any misconception about co-washing and whether you should adapt or avoid this hair technique.

Firstly, co-washing won’t cause hair loss or dandruff if you choose your conditioner wisely. For starters, you need a conditioner that contains no silicones or waxes as these tend to leave build up on your scalp and eventually lead to undesirable side effects. You should also opt for a conditioner with no heavy oils or butters, as these won’t rinse out completely with water, and with subsequent washes you will find your hair weighed down and once again, leave behind unwanted product build up on your scalp.

Secondly, it’s advisable to read the labels on conditioners and look for those that fall under the co-wash criteria to ensure you’re implementing the co-washing technique seamlessly. There are many products that are suitable and affordable in the market, not to mention that you can find an array of co-washing conditioners on The Hair Addict’s website that will help you achieve the desirable result.
