 it didn't take that long, actually.. I went through and did searches on "conditioner", " oil", "vinegar", etc. and harvested their links. Glad you folks find it helpful. Now all it needs is a new thread status.

Hugs

The first time I saw it being used on here I was confused of what it meant, so I had to google it up...

Hi Last Starfighter....nope...my hair was just below my waist back then.  I am just at the top of my thighs now.  Not sure my hair will ever get to my knees but I keep trying.  :-)  It is a worthwhile goal but definitely not one that everyone can attain depending on their hair type.

Hi all,
 
I hope this thread is helping everyone who visits.  Recently I've been doing a lot of experimenting with doing a comparison between hard core CO and CWC - Condition-wash-condition washing method.
 
Honestly I can't really tell which one is better because when I do the CWC although I start with Conditioner on super wet hair, I rinse it all out and then apply my shampoo.  So while applying the conditioner first is supposed to protect my hair from the shampoo, it seems to turn out the same as if I do CO only.
 
Has anyone experience this and is there some major difference you've experienced between CO and CWC?
