I'd say my hair has high porosity--it definitely seems dry and I do highlight with bleach. I also use a lot of gel to get the look I like, so that may affect things too. Up until now, I've always used Pantene Curl S and C.

Do you think I should start out trying a cowash? Or should I go straight to a low-poo option?
It doesn't sound like you need to worry about glycerin, then. My dews hover in the 70's for much of the year, and yes glycerin makes my hair friiiizzzzy.

After your last sulphate shampoo wash, it's really up to you to decide to poo or not to poo. I decided not to strictly cowash, but the further I get in my hair journey, the less I feel I actually have to shampoo. It is still perfectly "CG" to use a sulphate- free cleanser. If you want to dive in with both feet, try cowashing for a couple weeks and see how you like it. You'll know at that point if you need to poo or not.
