This question is to my natural hair readers.

How often do you co wash, shampoo, whatever your routine a week? I am finding that I am really lazy when it comes to this. I am a full time student and a full time employee and I have a life, so the last thing on my schedule sometimes is my hair(next to laundry).

Since I have the pin-up, I find myself only co washing once every seven days, but I read where people do their hair every three to four days. Please let me know what works best for you because I am noticing more shedding since I am waiting and I wonder if this is good. I know not combing through your hair for seven days will result in shedding, but I just want to hear what you all think.

Thanks for any feedback.

Much Love!

Lazy in the Lou!


  1. Hmmm...good question. During the summer I washed it every or every other day (just a little obsessed :-)). I cut back to 2 or 3 days a week, but noticed that I started shedding quite a but. I started using the Keratin 2 Minute Reconstructor & Keratin & Green Tea Restructurizer and it's helped quite a bit.

  2. Thank you for the info. I am going to try and wash more frequently and I will try the mentioned products. I will keep you posted.

  3. How is your natural journey coming along??

    I've nominated your blog for an award, please visit my site for details!

  4. Depending on what style my hair is in, I tend to co-wash every three days or so. I usually wash (with shampoo) every week. Since its getting cold (and I have dry hair), I'm going to start washin bi-weekly. If my hair is done in a style I'm trying to stretch, I sometimes skip with co-washing.

  5. To Deanna: Wow! I don't think my blog is worthy. You are so sweet and I am so honored that you would even consider that. Much thanks to you for all of your support and love! My natural hair journey is coming along great and I have no complaints - except the one above. I love my natural hair texture and I will never go back to relaxers. It has also saved me a bundle because I don't go to the salon nearly as much as before.(I have not been in over two months)I miss my stylist, but I don't miss the expense.

    To NappySTL: Thanks for the info! Your site is very informative. Please keep up the fab!

    Love ya all! :)
