Default anybody water wash+conditioner only?

Hey All,

I tried no poo years ago and never gave it a fair chance, so it didn't work for me. I'd like to try it again, but this time with water only and then conditioner to condition. I've been using Giovanni shampoo for years (Giovanni is SLS free). I'm wondering if anyone is just using water to cleanse and how it is working for them? How long did your hair stay greasy for?

Thanks!

I've been using low poo for a good 3 years now. Started straight co-washing last month to help combat dry scalp. My hair doesn't appear to be any more oily than with the low poo and I'm careful about avoiding silicones in my products. As far as I'm aware, the conditioner doesn't have any cleansing agents in it at all, so would be similar to water washing in that respect. I've water washed a few times in the past, but it's easier to massage your scalp (very, very important if you're not using a cleanser) clean when your fingers are lubricated with something like no-poo or a lightweight conditioner like the Suave Naturals. I'm using Suave Naturals - Lavender to co-wash and then follow up with DevaCare One Condition as a stronger rinse out conditioner on the length of my hair only.

i have V05 Moisture Milks in Strawberry and cream in my shower (bought it awhile ago when I first tried no poo). Perhaps I could use it to cleanse and another conditioner to condition?

I don't cowash but alternate between low pooing, sulfate washing and water washing. My sulfate shampoo is almost as gentle as my low poo.

I don't have a greasy scalp but suffer from more of a dry, flaky scalp.

I used to low poo with the Devacurl low poo. I liked it when I did it. Tonight I co-washed with V05 Moisture Milks, then use Mixed Chicks leave in conditioner, a dollop of LA Looks sports gel and plopped. Fingers crossed it will look good and wouldn't be oily/greasy tomorrow......
