Default poo vs. cowash vs. clarifying vs . . .

Hiya-

Not sure this is the best place to post this, but I can't find a more likely spot either, so . . .

I came to all of this via devacurl, and so was exclusively using their products, despite those being out of my price range. I mention this because my ignorance is deva-inspired.

I have been using the nopoo, OC, and anGel. I used the nopoo about 1-2 times/week, OC everytime I shower/get my hair wet, etc. I have been reading a lot about the cowash method and am excited that the fave cowash's are products like Suave (84 cents! yes!) and I've read about various less expensive and awesome conditioners, and and and . . .

I don't think I understand the difference (if such a one exists) between 'cowashing' and 'nopooing.' What I'm asking, basically is: is Deva's nopoo just a really pricey co-wash? Or is is doing a different kind of cleansing that I should consider continuing (but maybe looking for another less expensive alternative)?

And where does the clarifying rinse fit in? Is that totally distinct? or does it serve the same purpose as a nopoo/lowpoo type of product?

Thanks in advance for helpin' me out!

1. No poo is just a shampoo without sulfates. A cowash is a conditioner. Since this is a shampoo is not a cowash. As to whether or not you should continue using...I think that there are a lot of natural shampoos that are just as good and less expensive (Shea moisture, .
2. Clarifying rinse is different. Although a no-poo cleanses sometimes something stronger is needed for build up and that's where the rinse comes in.
