So you are saying don't use the SM milk for styling? I have been using it, but am not sure I like it. I have however, been using a small amount of the SM condish mixed with a little KCKT for a leave in. At first I loved that, but not so sure now. Here is what I am aiming for in my routine right now, although I am not there yet with 70+ dews is as follows:

1. Cowash.
2. RO with a very good condish that is high in behentrimonium methylsulfate and also has some panthenol.
3. Leave -in with some oils for sealing/anti-humectant qualitites.
4. Light gel for topping the canopy, frizz control only.

I would like to get to a point that I only low-poo maybe once or twice a month. Right now I am using it anywhere from 1-2x per week. Thoughts?
I meant don't use the SM if you're feeling overproteined, as in right after you did your DT/PT because the SM Milk is more like a sealer and it has some protein so it wouldn't be the right choice if your hair is buggin out on protein.

Your plan sounds good to me!

It's hard to say how often to low-poo. Personally I don't think low-pooing 1x a month is enough but i understand this is personal. Anyway, if buildup from something, possibly polyquats is a possibility I don't think low-pooing less would be a good move, at least for now.... unless your current low poo also has polyquats.
fine - low porosity - medium density - normal elasticity. Very high dews. Soft water.
