I'd agree you probably need to low-poo at least once or twice a week, if nothing else because co-washing every day would cause a lot of people to get over conditioned. I don't work out all the time like you, but I low-poo ever so often with GTTT because my scalp needs it for seborrehic dermatitis.

Also, I see you're using LOOB - just co-washing is likely not removing the castor oil in it, and that could be contributing to your problems. Even though the castor oil in it is PEG/PPG modified and supposed to be water soluble, co-washing doesn't remove it in LOOB, ArcAngell and other products that I've used that contain it.

ETA: Also, doesn't LVPNG contain amodimethicone? If so, you probably need to low-poo sometimes to be sure you're removing all of that, too.
