View Full Version : For those who do CWC or WCC or do anything with 2 C's!

So I have noticed that many who condition twice, whether it is before or after you wash, use two different conditioners.

Why is this? Can you use the same conditioner twice? Can you use a protein one then a coney one?

My thinking is this: if you use the WCC method, then why not use a high quality conditioner once than two cheaper ones twice? Once you condition once, would your hair not be 'sealed' and not reap the benefits of the second conditioner?

I am not judging your methods, I just want to know the why of everything and make sense of everything. Thank you in advance for your input!

With CWC, the point of the first conditioner is to coat the length of the hair so the shampoo doesn't strip it as much. You don't rinse the conditioner out before you shampoo. Most people seem to apply the conditioner from the ears down so the roots get the full strength of the shampoo, but I know some people apply conditioner all the way up to the roots (I do this; mostly I want to shampoo my scalp but my hair does still get clean.) The shampoo washes out a lot of the conditioner, that's why you condition again to get the full benefit. I use the same conditioner for both steps but some people don't.

I've never used WCC so I can't comment on that.

My first C is a cleansing conditioner the second C is a moisturizing one If I go for a 3rd C it's a DT mask.

I use my first C to gently cleanse heavy oilings from my hair, so it is very light and cheap. My second C is very heavy and coney to moisturize my hair, make detangling easier, and help protect my ends. :)

Oh but I use 2 heavy ones, otherwise my hair gets tangled. I use a good quality conditioner and then a hair mask right now. WCC is designed especially for dry lengths or if you have to use a shampoo that is drying and you have 2 or 3 or 4 texture, to preserve wave or curl. Might wanna read through the WCC thread (linked in my signature). ;) It became kind of a necessity since I was having to use harsh sulfates or a medicated shampoo and wanted to preserve my wave pattern (and waves need moisture).

Ok all makes sense now. I did peruse the WCC thread lapushka, but will read more closely.


Thank you all!

I need two conditioners because I use a clarifying shampoo every time I wash my hair (extreme oil slick). My first C is for finger combing, and the second C is for squish to condish.

I use a sulfatey shampoo and then a rich rinse out conditioner followed by a leave-in conditioner. I use the first conditioner to replenish what the shampoo stripped and the leave-in helps my waves form and gives frizz control.

Not to be picky but that's regular S/C + leave-in, not so much WCC, they both have to be rinse-out conditioners. :)

I do my shampooing once a week after a deep oil treatment. I wash my roots then run my palms down to my ends while rinsing. I then use a good conditioner and leave it in for 5 minutes with a cap. This leaves my hair soft and nice. It seems a bit extreme as my hair is very damaged, but it works out great for me.

I've been doing WCC, my hair gets fairly oily so I wash all my hair, condition with a cone free conditioner or light cone conditioner, and then again with a heavier coney conditioner. Keeps my hair soft and smooth without too much dryness.

Oh hey, it happens! I do a wash, 2 rinse out conditioners + the LOC method (leave-in, oil, gel) on top of it. How it all absorbs into my hair, beats me. :lol:

What is squish to condish?
