Why not co-wash?
Co-washing is the abbreviation of ‘conditioner washing.’ Women are skipping the shampoo stage and are using conditioner or co-wash to instead to clean their hair whilst maintaining moisture levels. Shampoo has a tendency to strip the hair and dry it out and co-washing seems to be the answer. Hair brands have listened and the hair care market is full of co-wash products. We’ve listed some of the most popular ones below.

Personally I am not a fan of co-washing as I like my scalp to feel clean with a good scratch, but when I am lazy co-wash is a perfect go to.
