: X-post: does anyone NOT use a rinse-out?
I'm gonna post this in General Discussion too for obvious reasons.
My hair is low-porosity so apart from making it easier to detangle my hair I don't see much benefit from the many RO's I've tried. My hair is fine too so when I cowash, then do a RO, then do a leavein (because that's the only thing that will stay on my hair long enough to sink in) my hair gets pretty weighed down. I have yet to find a lowpoo that doesn't either leave my hair coated or stripped. Just for the record I definitely see a difference if I don't use a leavein or use one without lots of protein, ie I get minimal wave, so at this moment I don't believe the leavein is the issue.
So I've been considering just skipping the RO. It seems like I could just cowash, rinse, put in some leavein (I use a PT usually) let it sit some while I do other stuff, detangle, give it my normal quick rinse to smooth out the tine lines and then move on to stylers. Anyone doing anything similar to this?
