How Pantene ProV Co wash Cleansing Conditioner converted me

I’ve never been a fan of the term co-washing. It’s a term that I encountered on online hair community. Essentially one attempts to cleanse the hair using only conditioner and no shampoos. There are many persons who love this method. I’ve never been one of them.

I tried it multiple times and came to the conclusion that no conditioner was going to clean my problematic scalp.  Attempting to co-wash often just resulted in an itchy gunky scalp for me. So I stuck with my shampoos happily.

When I received Pantenes new Truly Natural Co-Wash Cleanser, I raised my eye brow and held my tongue. I really had my doubts whether it would work for me.

I was wrong. So very wrong.

The Co- Wash did refresh my hair and scalp and did not aggravate or make my scalp itchy. More over I was able to detangle with the cowash in the shower as I would a normal conditioner. Un top of this it removed the product I had inmy hair effectively (curling custard and shine serum). A total winner.

Since it’s labeled as labeled as a cleansing conditioner,after rinsing I didn’t do any masks or  rinse out conditioners I went straight to my leave in conditioners and styling products. Some thing I would NEVER normally do.

However again the Co-Wash surprised me. I was able to style and manipulate my hair with the curling custard with minimal breakage.

The Co wash cleansing conditioner has minimal to zero lather, which can be a little disconcerting for a person like me who enjoys shampoo lather. I’ll admit that on my first use I piled on way too much product in hopes of getting lather but to no avail. The plus side is that even with way too much product in my hair, I still didn’t manage to strip my hair and it still felt cottony soft to the touch.

I really didn’t have high expectations for this product, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It’s nice to see that Pantene has plugged in to the natural hair community and they are trying to provide what we need.

I have been converted. I am now a co-washer.

Have you tried this product?

What were your thoughts?

Are you a habitual co washer?

Until next time.
