Trends may come and go, but with the right care beautifully defined curls are forever.
Here at Grow Gorgeous, we keep on top of all the latest hair hacks so you don’t have to sweat the details. If you have wavy, curly or coily hair you’ve no doubt tried everything to ward off dryness and nail your frizz control. But we know it’s not always easy, especially with the cold weather upon us. That’s why we recommend co-washing hair with a cleansing conditioner: a tried and tested method that’s proven to smooth all curl types and keep your scalp soothed, day after day.
‘Co-washing’, otherwise known as ‘conditioner washing’, is a one-step routine that cleanses and nourishes hair simultaneously. If you have textured or afro hair and you don’t already co-wash, you’re missing a trick. Simply skip the act of shampooing when you wash and focus on keeping your curls in tip-top shape by using a dedicated cleansing conditioner.
Not got textured hair but suffering from chemical or heat or damage? As a method with proven benefits for extremely dry and damaged tresses, co-washing hair could still be for you!
What are the benefits of co-washing hair?
The benefits of co-washing can include hydration, improved texture and enhanced glossiness… not to mention all that hydration is bound to give you some serious frizz control! While harsh formulas can strip hair of essential oils and moisture, co-washing trains hair to maintain healthy levels of these naturally. When washing curly hair, bear in mind it needs more of these natural oils to maintain a healthy condition. That’s why we’re such a fan of this one-step, dream routine. You could see an increase in volume and a decrease in frizz from day one! Sounds great so far, right?
What product should I be using?
Many modern shampoos and conditioners are formulated with Sulphates, Silicones, Phthalates, and Mineral Oil – and these ingredients can do more harm than good to your hair. Washing curly hair with these ingredients can affect your natural texture and curl pattern negatively, but Grow Gorgeous is a brand proudly stepping away from the norm. By removing these ingredients from our formulas our products are not only vegan friendly and gluten-free but good for your scalp and hair! But what does that have to do with co-washing hair?
Well, when you use traditional shampoos and conditioners to wash textured, curly, coily, or afro hair these ingredients can sap the natural moisture. Using a Grow Gorgeous shampoo and conditioner duo to combat this would be step one for most people. But we believe your curls need the best care possible. This is why we created a whole range especially for you.
Packed full of beneficial ingredients like caffeine to give your roots a stimulating boost and our Oat Lipids Complex to reinforce the scalp’s natural barrier, this hair hero will keep moisture locked in and your tresses stress-free. The Curl Defining Conditioner is the first step to completely revamped and refreshed hair, but how do you use it?
