Default question for 2's that shampoo

Can you tell me your routine? I started cg wanting to not shampoo and that just doesn't seem to agree with my hair. Any tips? Tricks? Thanks so much for any help you can give me.

How long have you tried to just use conditioner to wash you hair? It takes the hair/scalp some time to adapt to the change.

If you decide to keep using shampoo, try either cutting down the times a week you poo, or use a low-sulfate or sulfate-free poo. If you use products with cones in them, you'll have to use a sulfate poo, or a clarifying poo to get them out, though.

I'm modified CG, so I use a clarifying shampoo once a week or so. Other than that, I use a conditioner to wash with.

Hope that helps some .

I also water down my shampoo - put a little in the palm of my hand, add water and lather it up before I apply it to my scalp. I use shampoo maybe once or twice a week, depending on what products I'm using, and the rest of the time I also use conditioner to wash.

Hope that helps!

The clarifying shampoo I use is by Suave.

If you have a health food store nearby, J/A/S/O/N has some sulfate-free shampoos.

Creme of Nature, mainly found in the ethnic hair section is also sulfate-free.

Jessicurl has some shampoos that are worth checking out (both sulfate-free, I believe). I just got some stuff from her and used her Hair Cleansing Cream this morning and it was sulfate-free.

DevaCurl has some shampoos that you could check out. I think they have both low-sulfate and sulfate free ones.

LavenderCurls, you stated that " If you use products with cones in them, you'll have to use a sulfate poo, or a clarifying poo to get them out, though"
I do not use any sulfates in my poo's anymore. I use the low poo and doesn't cocoa betaine or the mild surfactants in the low poo remove the cones? I hope so. I did buy the Suave clarifying poo. I only use it once a month because when I quit the sulfates my hair was so much better, no more frizz. It was like a miracle. And I don't want to use it too often.

Something that has helped me alot is getting a low-poo and using it twice a week. I get mine from a local place called the Beehive Bathhouse. SHe is supposed to be getting up a website soon, but an organic would work too. JASON or Aubrey?

I use Nature's Gate Jojoba shampoo. I've had some issues with a dry, flaky scalp in the past, and apparently jojoba is supposed to help balance and restore the proper sebum level of your skin. So far, so good - my scalp feels great and the shampoo doesn't seem to dry out my hair.

I've used Deva Low-Poo in the past, as well as Jessicurl Gentle Lather Shampoo, and I've liked them both too. Hope that helps!

Yes, I think you're right - thanks for pointing that out as that's something I forget about . Cyclopentasiloxane is a cone that definitely needs sulfates to get it out and cocoa betaine won't do it for that one.

Thanks again for mentioning the cocoa betaine getting the milder cones out .

I use Deva Lo-poo every day and it is perfect for me. Co-washing makes my hair frizzier and way too soft. My hair overconditions quite easily when I do not use sulfates.
