It is recommended cowashing, that is, cleaning only with the conditioner. The method is full of rules and of course we all rule out some of them. But, the most important thing is to adapt to yourself – Anamarija points out and added that she learned about this method from a friend with curly hair.

– After trying the method for several months, we got together for coffee, and I was amazed at its change. I wanted the same thing, so I “curled up” in it all and realized that there was no going back to the old way of caring for my hair.
