You have to remember that I'm older (61 this month), so don't have the hormonal and oil issues of a younger person.
I never cowash. If I want to clean my scalp, I use natural soap bars. If I want to remove minerals, I use CJ Daily Fix (every 3-6 weeks.) If I need to remove an ingredient (of late, polyquats), I need to use a lowpoo with a surfactant that's stronger than coco b.
I NEVER use a comb or Denman brush on my hair. I gently finger comb my conditioner through. Same with products (and then I scrunch.)
If you have the DVD from the newer CG book, that's the way I try to handle my hair--as gently as possible. I could never use all of the product they use.
