How often you wash your hair is ultimately a personal choice, but one thing we know for sure is that washing your hair too frequently with shampoo (specifically those with stripping ingredients and certain surfactants) can result in more harm than good, like dry hair that's more prone to damage and breakage. To combat this while still being able to cleanse your hair and rid your scalp of dirt and product buildup, a good alternative to turn to is cowashing.
An abbreviation for "conditioner-only washing," cowashing is a process that's pretty self-explanatory. Conditioners don't technically cleanse the hair, though now that cowashing has become more popularized, you can find tons of conditioners that have special cleansing benefits.
