    Default My first CO wash! (pic)

    Hello, Happy Easter! I did my very first CO wash yesterday. I used a conditioner my hair doesn't like very much to massage my scalp and try to clean the hair. It was DesignLine Color Care conditioner. Then I used my Aussie conditioner to finish. It had been 5 days since my last shampoo, so I had a bit of oiliness to remove. Decided it was the perfect time to try it! Anyway, my hair rinsed out silky smooth and was VERY easy to brush. I let it air dry, and I LOVE the result! My curls feel very moist, but not greasy at all. They feel like what I think hair should feel like.. no dryness whatsoever. The curls are also way less prominent, which I love as well! They're much looser and defined. I will have to keep this up to see how much longer the wonderful feeling lasts!

    My first CO experience was out of this world as well. Later I found it isn't the best method for me, but it is for many people, and maybe you will be one of them. The picture is lovely.

    I have been CO'ing since I found LHC and my hair loves it! I usually go for 6 days CO'ing and then clarify on the 7th day.

    No one would ever believe me if I told them I wash with poo one time a week!

    That's a wonderful picture. I've been CO since before I joined this forum (I lurked for a couple of months), and while I think you may find that you have to discover your own routine (like what conditioner, how long to leave it on, the amount of scalp scrubbing, the amount of rinsing, etc), CO i loverly.

    Wow, beautiful results!

    I'm another CO'er, with once a week (occasionally more in summer time) shampoo-er.

    It looks good!

    I'm with Spidermom on this one. The occasional CO works just fine on me but in the long run it hasn't been succesful, ever. I use shampoo on my scalp only now, doing CWC.

    If you future results are discouraging, don't give up too soon, but also realize that while CO works for quite a few it is not a holy grail for everyone.
