Cleansing Conditioners cleanse, balance and refresh your hair without stripping your scalp of natural oils and nutrients. Thinking you want to be rid of the oil, that’s the point of washing? Think again. Your scalp likes a balance of oil, too much and your locks go limp, too little and your hair becomes dry and brittle. Your scalp naturally likes to maintain the perfect balance and if you’re overusing a stripping shampoo it will produce more oil, to get you back to that perfect balance. Instead, leave a little oil on that scalp and your body will continue with it’s normal production levels meaning, less oily tresses and more days between washes.
Cleansing conditioners replace your shampoo and conditioner cleansing your scalp and hair with gentle, detergent-free formulas that don’t lather (as they’re sulfate free) but leave your locks clean, soft, frizz-free and hydrated.
Perfect for dry, damaged, colour treated and curly hair, here are five of our favourite co-washing companions.
