Co-washing: Use conditioner as shampoo

As mentioned before, using shampoo is bad for your hair.  It can cause your hair to get all tangled up and dried out.  That is why I have previously suggested that you use less shampoo.  I know the thought of not shampooing can be quite scary for some of you out there.  So instead of just rinsing your hair out with plain water, I recommend that you try giving co-washing a chance.

Hydrate your hair with less shampoo

I have long hair.  In fact, for most of my adult life, I have had long hair.  I have tried cutting my hair really short once, but it just did not work for me.  So I made a vow to always have my hair at least past the shoulders.

Being Asian, I have been blessed with what people would consider to be “good hair.”  So I have had no problem getting my hair to grow out.  The long hours running in the sun and summers spent in swimming pools never caused any major damages to my hair.  Even the blonde hair phase did not cause too many problems for me.  Therefore, I was rather surprised when my hair started getting extremely dry and tangled up almost overnight.

The human skin is rather fragile.  So after so many years of life, your skin is prone to be damaged in one way or another.  The sun can especially cause your skin to look less than perfect.  However, even if you are not a worshiper of the sun, you are still likely to suffer from some type of damage to your skin.  That is because normal stuff like acne can be sure to leave behind scars on your skin.
