Hello everybody! Did you ever have cases that accidentally washed my head balsom, mistaking a bottle of shampoo. If Yes, do not rush to wash hair, because there is a special procedure of washing hair only with conditioner or balm, it's called Co-washing process.
the covering is the word co-washing, which is an abbreviation of the expression Conditioner Only Washing
Why and who needs the procedure of "covering"
Invented it, African women, and is designed for taming curly or hair. Also the effect should assess the owner of dry, bleached and dyed hair. This kind of procedure for hair restoration.
As it will be useful to dyed hair, I will try to explain in your own words, as in the compositions of the shampoos I am not strong) In shampoos contain such substances that contribute to the rapid leaching of pigment from the hair, so the balms and conditioners it is not, and therefore the intensity and freshness of color thanks to the covering will persist for a longer period. But again 1 application hair wash with conditioning, to evaluate this effect will not work.
In addition, the covering promises to reduce the frequency of washing hair, but again not everyone and not every is suitable.
Experienced users claim that and quickly irresist hair co-washing process can be a salvation. This statement also has theoretical justification, because it is often too active cleaning with aggressive detergents can cause excessive activity of the sebaceous glands.However, each case needs an individual approach. For someone suited regular use only this method, other better alternate to traditional washing. It is necessary to focus on the condition of the hair and lifestyle.

What you will need for the procedure Co-washing process?
Air conditioning or hair conditioner, in this case even, the cheapest. But the main condition that the composition should not be silicone. This is important, as when washing hair in this conditioner, the silicones will clog the pores of the scalp and the hair is just not rinsed, and the length of the hanging icicles.

I specifically buy air conditioning did not, decided to use a favorite Aleppo balm
How is Co-washing process?
The conditioner will leave much, if the length of the hair just below the shoulder blades is approximately 100 ml of conditioning.
1. Thoroughly wet hair with warm water, squeeze them with your hands to flowing water.
2. Take the conditioner, pour slightly in your palm and begin to massage the scalp and hair, do it carefully until frothy. How much left of the balm will not say exactly, but it is not 100 ml., less. I added a balm for hair and scalp little by little, focusing on his feelings, as he felt that was the foam, use conditioner, I stopped. Carefully massaging the scalp.
3. Then all washed off, rinse the hair should be carefully, better to squeak. Will say squeak I heard, as it happens when washing hair with purifying shampoo, again focused on the sensations washed until the bathtub is gone, the foam balm. Once tried to measure the time for everything it took about 10 minutes.
4. If desired, the length of hair you can apply a mask or air-drying are your favorite nemawashi. I'm not one nor the other did not, I think it is excessive.
Painted, paint every 1.5 months, hair is greasy at roots and dry at the ends, the hair is thin, my head through the day.

The tips of the closer
The before and after photos
The results impress me.
The covering I did for 2 weeks, alternated with a shampoo, that is, one shampoo, another conditioner. The covering on the frequency of washing hair was not affected, that is, as I was washing my hair through the day, so it was with balm, dirty they I the same as after shampooing.
To track faster if washed the paint just doesn't seem possible, but only if to perform some kind of test experiment, but I'm too lazy to bother. The covering I made for a different purpose, I would like to get more hydrated and smooth hair, remove dry after dyeing, and also little to reduce the frequency of shampooing. The effect pleased me, from time to time I am now going to wash my hair this way.
I recommend to try "Co-washing process", but the first time it is better to do on weekends when you don't have to run to work, and in the event of frustration you can immediately wash your hair with shampoo
