Default How often do you guys use poo?

Hey, Just wondering what your routines are with regards to using lowpoo or nopoo...Also what is the difference between low and no- b/c some have said that lowpoo left there hair feeling heavy, but no poo didnt...so I'm confused!

I use a sulfate free shampoo every 10 days or so. Occasionally I use a clarifying shampoo, too.

Well, I just went over a month without using any shampoo. I just used No Poo maybe once a week. I had to use some Suave clarifying shampoo this morning though, because I used No Poo yesterday and it still didn't seem to make my hair feel clean.

I only used a tiny bit, though, for my scalp and my canopy, and used lots of conditioner on my ends first.

My hair is a bit floofy today as a result (and it's rainy), but it feels clean! You should just do it if your hair feels like it needs it. Buildup from products, etc. Then again, there are people who can get away with never shampooing.

Thanks guys! I think you are right utopia- to do it feels like your hair needs Everyone's hair/scalp is different! I used a little clarifying with my low poo yesterday, and my hair feels much better. I think it got so oily b/c I hadnt done a ACV rinse since March! lol

I use a low sulfate shampoo once a week, and massage it into my scalp. I don't repeat. Right now I am using Trader Joe's Refresh, diluted with distilled water because it has a sulfate called something like "12 -14 olefin sulfate".

I've never tried Lo-Poo. I use No-Poo daily. I haven't used shampoo in several months.

about once a week; just a little bit of baby shampoo whenever my scalp starts feeling a little greasy

I actually Low Poo a couple times a week, just a dab or so. My hair starts to act funny and get build-up-y and less curly and I get weird frizz, so i Low Poo and start with a clean palate. I was CG, but now I've moved to the dark side of the Force and added back some 'cones.
