My hair doesn't care for straight oil/butter, but likes them in products. I've used natural soap bars to remove the "residual" ingredients for the last 4+ years (they were the rage on nc.com summer of '08.) I rarely use lowpoo. Maybe every 3-4 months--if I use an ingredient my hair doesn't like.

I usually take CJ Daily Fix to the salon every six weeks when I get my haircut/highlight. I like it for it's chelating properties.
