The Biggest Little Secret in Hair Care

Everyone has heard that we’re “not supposed to wash our hair everyday because it’s too hard on our hair and strips our scalp & hair of good oils.” But if you’re like most active women, what do you do after the gym? Or after a long day of work? Not wash because your stylist said it’s bad to wash your hair too often?

Our Solution... *Co-Washing...

*But not in the way that many people have heard or been told it’s supposed to be done.

More on this in a moment, but first, if this is your initial exposure to co-washing, let me help you get familiar with it….

“What is Co-W`ashing?”

Simply put, co-washing is short for “conditioner-only washing.” It means skipping shampoo and relying solely on conditioner, whether you’re a daily or a weekly washer. The result is something between squeaky-clean and second-day hair—that is, smoother, softer, and easier to manage. (

Understanding and Maximizing your Results with your New CoWash Cleansing Conditioner

Co-Washing responds to the age-old advice from hair stylists that we need to give our hair “days off” from washing so that you don’t strip your scalp and hair of natural, healthy oils. It’s a simple way to stretch out your shampoo days by instead using a formulated cleansing conditioner, sometimes referred to as “co-wash” or “no-poo” (no shampoo).

If you already have stressed hair from chemical treatments or hormone imbalance, co-washing can really help your hair in your recovery and rebuilding process. But beyond that, it’s an ingenious treatment for so much more, such as reducing frizz, smoothing curls, softening hair and making styling more manageable, to name just a few.

Here’s just one of the reasons we’re loving cowashing for color-treated, naturally curly, frizzy, fine hair…. When you wash in the morning with our LuxeOrganix Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, and then go to the gym later in the day, if you need to do your hair again that day (if you’re going out, for instance), you will shower and co-wash your hair instead of using the shampoo again.

Some customers simply skip the shampoo step, and instead apply LuxeOrganix CoWash Cleansing Conditioner and massage it really well into my hair and scalp (as you would normally do with a shampoo). Then you can use a wide tooth comb to spread it through your hair, which helps detangle and spread the product evenly. Then after several minutes, rinse and style as usual.

It’s nice because it also saves you time in the shower not having to both shampoo and condition.To get natural, beach waves, squeeze your hair with a towel (being careful not to rub your hair, which can cause frizz), scrunch in a small amount of LuxeOrganix Argan Oil Styling Cream, and then allow your hair to air dry, occasionally scrunching during and after it dries to enhance the waves. (Be sure to have a look below at our “ProfessionalWashingTechniques” for best tips on how to co-wash with LuxeOrganix CoWash Cleansing Conditioner.)

  • Yes, it’s even recommended for extensions, and is gentle and safe for Chemically-Treated hair, including colored and professionally straightened, or Keratin treatments.

Professional Washing Techniques

You’ll find that LuxeOrganix CoWash Cleansing Conditioner works best after washing with our Sulfate Free Shampoo and Conditioner Sets such as our Invigorate Biotin Shampoo and Conditioner and Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. It’s the perfect pairing to gently cleanse your hair, giving it the ability to grow healthy, nourished locks.

If you are using the CoWash Cleansing Conditioner for the purpose of co-washing, it’s important that before you apply the product that you rinse your hair thoroughly and use your fingertips to massage and scrub your scalp to get extra sediment out and remove any dead skin cells. Then as you apply the CoWash Cleansing Conditioner, work from the roots outward, and scrub the entire scalp vigorously with your fingertips for a few minutes.

Because this product does not contain sulfates (which lather and strip the hair of sediment and your good oils), it will require a little more scrubbing than a traditional, sulfate-based shampoo.If necessary, add a splash of water to help spread the product evenly. (Do not do this if your hair is overly dry and is needing extra moisturizing.) Using a comb can also be helpful to spread the conditioner down to the ends of your hair.

You may find it beneficial to give the gentle cleansing agents in the CoWash Cleansing Conditioner extra time to soak longer than you would when washing with a normal shampoo. So after you scrub and comb through it, perhaps leave it to set while you finish showering (5-10 minutes), and then rinse at the end of your shower.

Something else to keep in mind is that if you use styling products, you’re going to have more build up than what you would by just taking a day or two off from washing. This of course will require a cleansing conditioner (that is not like shampoo) to have to work harder, which means being sure you’re rinsing and scrubbing well (like a professional stylist does when shampooing your hair). As mentioned before, you may find that leaving the conditioner to soak, before rinsing, gives the cleansing agents a chance to work at removing the sediment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some questions or requests we’ve received from our customers, to help you get the best results using your LuxeOrganix CoWash Cleansing Conditioner.

How much should I use?

The Recommended Amount Of Co-Washing Varies From One Person To The Next!

Of course we all know that length of hair can make a difference when it comes to how much product you should use and how often you should use it; however, hair type will make an impact as well.

For example, if your hair is longer or thicker, or has build-up from styling products or several days without washing, you may need to increase the amount you use.

In some cases, co-washing twice, to remove heavy build-up, may be necessary. (Please be sure to read our “Professional Washing Techniques” below.)

Typically a generous dollop (about the size of half of a golf ball) is right for most people. You’ll know that you have enough product in your hair when you’re able to easily scrub it into your roots and massage it down to your ends.

How Often Should I Co-Wash?

Some women co-wash to the point that they only clarify with a shampoo once a week, and some once a month. In my case, I’m still stretching out my “in-between” days to see what my hair likes best. I tend to wash twice a week with our Sulfate-Free Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, and then other days I either “take off” or I co-wash with LuxeOrganix CoWash Cleansing Conditioner.

IMPORTANT: Unlike some companies who advise customers that they can abandon shampooing all together, this is not our stance, nor do we recommend it. Our CoWash Cleansing Conditioner is an “In-Between Shampoo Alternative,” which means that we advise clarifying with a shampoo occasionally to remove build-up. If build-up becomes out of hand, it can cause itchy, flaky scalp, or in extreme cases, can lead to hair loss. Hair appearance can also become negatively affected by excessive build-up.

Though some with extremely dry hair can nearly eliminate shampoo from their routine, depending on your hair type, as well as the climate, you can co-wash as often as you like. However, if your hair is feeling oily or spongy, this means you’re overdoing it and need to co-wash less frequently.

In most cases, you’ll want to plan to clarify weekly or more often (depending on your needs) with a sulfate-free shampoo, as your hair and scalp may still need a shampoo to adequately cleanse.

Not All Conditioners Are Good For Using As A Co-Wash.

LuxeOrganix Argan Oil Conditioner, for example, is not meant to be used as a co-wash because it wasn’t designed that way. If not formulated properly, using a conditioner for the purpose of co-washing will lead to build-up, which as just mentioned, can lead to irritated scalp, residue on your hair, and even hair loss over time. So it’s very important that when you co-wash you are using a conditioner that is designated as a “cleansing conditioner” or “co-wash”.

You’ll also want to make sure that it is free of harsh, problem-causing ingredients, such as phthalates, parabens, sulfates, alcohol or sodium chloride. (Of course, none of these are included in LuxeOrganix CoWash Cleansing Conditioner.)

So who does Co-Washing work for?

LuxeOrganix CoWash Cleansing Conditioner is great for all hair types. However, for those with dermatitis or if your hair is prone to being oily after just one day, it may not be the right for you. It’s also been suggested that if you have fine hair, that co-washing might weigh it down.

(On the contrary, many of our customers have fine, naturally curly/wavy hair, and their hair has responded great to co-washing and doesn’t get weighed down.)

Of course, you know that we stand behind you as our customer and our products, so if you try it and it’s not right, just let us know so we can help you to achieve the result you’re looking for.
