What’s co-washing, and why you should do it? All your co-wash questions answered...
Co-washing is short for 'conditioner washing', which means ditching the shampoo and washing your hair with a conditioning based product only. You may have people refer to this as the 'Curly Girl Method' or 'No Poo Method'.
The Muse Curls is a curl specialist salon in Northampton who use and stock Only Curls products. The salon was founded by Erica Liburd who began crafting kinky, coily, curly and wavy hair way back in 1995. She is vastly knowledgable about curls and now has a team of textured hair specialists.
"The first time I received a negative comment about my hair was at an interview for an office job. The director of the company asked me if I intended on keeping my hair curly if I was to be offered the job. He said my hair was a little ‘wild’ and might scare the clients. I told the director that I would most certainly be keeping my curls and that straightening it for the job would not be an option. I was so hurt that my hair was the director’s main concern rather than my capabilities as a potential employee."
To those returning to the office, we just wanted to send a reminder that curly hair IS professional. We know many of you embraced your curls over lockdown, so we just wanted to encourage you to wear those curls back into your workplace with pride.
If you look to social media or forums for inspiration on how to look after your curls, you might be a little confused with some of the terminology out there. We thought we'd put together a simple guide to help clear things up and help you understand curl terminology.
I wanted to provide an update from Only Curls as we have understandably been receiving a few questions as to how the current Covid-19 situation is affecting us. Currently, I’m happy to say we are still open for business and are shipping out all orders as usual.
