Questions & Answers for Carol's Daughter Hair Milk™ Conditioning Co-Wash

Question
Would you still use shampoo?
Since this is a "cleansing" conditioner, would you still need to use shampoo to wash your hair, or is this a two-in-one sort of thing?

No need to shampoo with this. I use this as my everyday "shampoo" and only use regular shampoo once a week.

I do not use shampoo along with the co-wash. The co-wash cleanses and conditions.

I have been using this type of shampoo for years and have never felt the need to use a "shampoo". I feel this does an excellent job of cleaning my hair and scalp.

Co wash is what it is I use this on my curly hair in between shampoos and actually find that I like the way my hair feels after using.

It's a two in one kind of cleanser, but it's very moisturizing and emoillient, so I would suggest a regular shampoo monthly.

You do not need to shampoo first. It's not exactly a 2-in-one in the traditional sense that it will lather - it just sort of soaks in and works its magic. It is similar (in some ways) to Wen cleansing conditioner.

I use a lot of hair product and do occasionally use a clarifying shampoo prior to using my CD co-wash, but that's 1-2 washes per month.

No, you do not want to wash after the co-wash it defeats the purpose in my opinion

No, you should not use a shampoo. The co-wash is your shampoo. You need to use a leave-in or conditioner .I do not rinse out leave in or conditioner depending on hair texture and thickness.

No, this is your shampoo. Co-washing is a longer process then regular shampoo though.

This is made for anyone with curly hair. I've found some of the other Carol's Daughter products are better for women of color that have drier and/or coarser hair.

It designed for curly hair or hair with a tight curl pattern, so it would work for women of any color and biracial or mixed race people with really curly hair.

I am not a woman of color and I use it and love it.

I do have somewhat dry, coarse, thick, wavy-curly hair. I don't think it would work well for fine/straight hair.

It is in concept, but this is heavier than Wen. My hair feels cleaner after using Wen, this leaves a conditioned feeling

It is pretty similar. Completely different smell. Like Wen, you have to rinse it very well. But I found Wen to leave my hair a little softer and not as oily at the roots.

Not really. It's more heavy duty.

Yes.

However, unlike Wen, you don't have to use almost half the ($50) bottle for 1 wash and take 20 minutes to cleanse your hair/scalp. It's a better value and I like it just as much, if not better.

I have used the wen product, too, but I prefer this one. Like wen, this does not lather, but I think this is gentler. My hair is coarse and dry, and my hair is softer and less frizzy with this one.

I have fine, curly hair and I love it. It's not too heavy and doesn't weigh my hair down nor leave a filmy coating on it.

I tried it, and I have fine, straight/sometimes slightly wavy hair that is highlighted, it is entirely too drying, I would not recommend it.
