First, You are not alone! Before I started Co washing I had to wash every day or my scalp looked oily. I DID have a transition period for sure. For about 2 weeks I just put my hair up and let it be kinda... blah. After a few weeks of every other day co washing things started looking up. I use Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut Conditioner. My scalp is really sensitive to dyes and perfumes so I only use the Coconut because it is dye free! It's a very light weight conditioner which I discovered is a must for me. Also, Clarifying with baking soda makes all the difference. I did it once each week at first, but now I just clarify when I feel like my hair needs a pick me up. To clarify with baking soda I just grab a medium sized bowl and dump some baking soda in. I take the bowl in the shower and fill it with warm water and stir. When the baking soda is dissolved I plop my hair into the bowl, comb the water through my hair with my fingers, and then pour the baking soda water over my scalp while massaging it in. That's it. I condition like normal and go about my day. Both the conditioner and the baking soda are super cheap and my hair looks and feels great. I hope you find a CO solution that works for you. Don't give up, keep trying things!
