“This method is gaining popularity, putting it neck and neck with co-washing, and many are wondering what it is exactly. There’s no right way to do it, only a right way for each person. Like everything in your curly hair routine, follow the steps below and then tweak the method until you get the best for you and your curls.”
“For the curlies or the dry hair sufferers out there, the condition-wash-condition method is the perfect option to give hair a break. Many complained of co-washing because too much conditioner and not enough washing can cause dandruff, scalp itch, irritation and even breakouts.”
“Getting to It
- Wet your hair thoroughly. This will help absorb the moisture and nutrients of the conditioner.
- Apply conditioner all over. Remember to avoid your scalp unless it’s dry.
- Work shampoo through the entire scalp. In the condition-wash-condition method, the conditioner should still remain on the rest of the hair.
- Rinse out both the conditioner and shampoo at the same time, riding them completely from your hair.
- Condition your hair once again, this time working from root to tip. You can use the same conditioner you used previously or use another conditioner of your choice.
- Rinse again while taking care not to scrub or strain the hair.”
I do a variation of this method without even knowing it! I detangle before I shampoo with a conditioner. I leave the conditioner in when I shampoo and then I condition after shampooing. Ha! Maybe this is why I have never had dry hair after shampooing… it works!
