Back in 2012, I came across a You-tuber talking about "The Curly Girl Method". The Curly Girl Method was invented By Lorraine Massey, author of "Curly Girl the Handbook. The Curly Girl Method is a hair regimen that uses sulfate-free cleansers, botanical conditioner or conditioner on your natural hair. No more heating tools like flat irons, hot combs, blower dyers (unless its a blow dryer with a diffuser) etc. Instead of shampooing your hair you would Co-wash your hair (using conditioner) and you will style your hair with Silicone free & Sulfate free products. This method is a good way to refresh your hair in the wash & go style until your ready to cleanse your hair.
**Remember not to just use co-wash only as a cleansing source because you still need to use shampoo to cleanse your scalp. Over time if you don’t cleanse your scalp it will cause scalp issues down the line.
