HOW I CO-WASH & DETANGLE MY 4C NATURAL HAIR with VIDEO 

Morning Loves, welcome back to my blog Loves.  CO-WASH & DETANGLING are some of the most confusing words for new naturals. Cowash simply means conditioner washing which is washing or cleansing natural hair with a conditioner & Detangling  simply means getting rid of tangles from your hair.

 

Today, I will be sharing with you in detail HOW I COWASH & DETANGLE MY 4C HAIR.

Benefits of Cowashing: 

  • Cowashing is great because it cleanses hair without stripping its moisture and oils like regular shampoo will do especially sulphate-containing shampoo.
  • You can cowash hair more regularly more than you would a shampoo.
  • It softens hair making detangling very easy and hair more manageable
  •  It keeps scalp moisturised
  • It may help colour last longer  (for colour treated hair) since you are not stripping it with consistent  shampoo
  • It can help define curls
  • You may not need to deep condition hair afterwards, especially if busy, as cowash provides hair with some moisture; not as much as a deep conditioner would though.

 

What to Cowash & Detangle with.

There are products made specifically for co-wash like the Cantu Shea Butter Complete Conditioning Co-wash; review HERE

 

There are a lot of conditioners made specifically for cleansing/co-washing or detangling natural hair. What is important when buying a conditioner for cowash is

  • Does not contain sulphur (dries hair out) or silicone(forms a coat over hair making it difficult for moisturise to penetrate hair)
  • Look for all the good stuff you want in your hair; water, coconut, aloe vera, glycerine, honey, the good oils, e.t.c.
  • It has GREAT SLIP,  meaning when applied to hair, it softens and melts the tangles making fingers or comb glide through easily.

My Cowash & Detangling Routine 

  • I wet my hair with warm water to soften and melt the dirts and products build up from the previous week
  • I put my hair in four sections
  • I take a subsection of hair and I apply a  generous amount of conditioner
  • I rub it through my hair making sure it is saturated from roots to tips
  • I rub my scalp with the balls of my fingers in a circular motion, cleaning and massaging it at the same time
  • I finger detangle my hair by separating it and gliding my fingers throught it carefully
  • Then, I use a wide tooth comb  (shower comb) to further detangle. Some people skip this step
  • I twirl that section and clip it away, then move on to the next section.
  • Once I’m done with all my hair, I rinse the conditioner out with cold water  (if I wont be deep conditioning to seal in the little moisture got from the conditioner) OR  warm water (if I will be deep conditioning to open up the hair cuticles), rubbing my scalp and running my fingers through my hair.
  • Then I dry my hair with cotton t-shirt and move on to moisturising and styling.

Important Tips

  • Avoid silicone-containing conditioners
  • Use generous amount of conditioner  (very important)
  • Finger detangle first and use wide tooth comb to detangle
  • Be gentle when detangling hair
  • Band, braid or twist your hair to avoid tangling up again.
  • Use hair catchers to avoid clogging the shower
