Shampoo or Conditioner First? What Order To Use Them In

Should you shampoo or condition first? Get salon-quality locks with these step-by-step tips on how to thoroughly treat your tresses.

  1. Using Co-wash Before Shampooing

While co-washing has traditionally been a substitute for shampooing, its evolution into a pre-poo (pre-shampoo treatment) and a detangling method before shampooing. Apply the co-wash product to dry or damp hair by starting at the ends and working your way up to the roots, ensuring even distribution. Once the co-wash has been evenly applied, use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to gently detangle your hair, starting from the ends and slowly working up to the roots to minimize breakage. Allow the co-wash to sit on your hair for 5-10 minutes, rinse it out and then shampoo. Our Lavender Aloe Moisturizing CoWash is the perfect product to detangle your hair before shampooing.

  1. Shampoo After Prepoo

While co-washing promotes hydration and maintains the hair's natural moisture balance, it may not always remove all buildup from products, oils, and dirt. This is why it’s important to shampoo after co-washing. Shampooing after co-washing can thoroughly cleanse your scalp and hair, removing any residual buildup. Opt for a sulfate-free shampoo to ensure thorough cleansing without stripping the hair of its natural oils. Our Coconut Shea Moisture Shampoo is a sulfate free mild cleanser that restores moisture to hair. It’s a great gentle cleanser for all hair types.

  1. Deep Conditioning After Shampoo

Deep conditioning after shampooing is an important step because it replenishes moisture and nutrients, ensuring your hair remains strong, elastic, and shiny. Apply a generous dollop to clean, shampooed hair. Start at the ends and work your way up to the roots making sure to distribute evenly. Then cover with a plastic cap and leave on your hair for a minimum of 15 minutes. Be sure to rinse well and then style your silky smooth hair. Our Coconut Shea Hair Masque Treatment is the perfect thick and creamy deep conditioning treatment created to attack dry, brittle strands with a botanical blend of Coconut Oil and Shea Butter.
