Question is it my low poo causing bad hair days or....

I've been using Deva low poo along with one condition and after a week, my hair today was awful!! Lifeless, especially on top (layed flat) and it looked greasy. So... is it an ingredient in the Deva curl low poo or do I just need to clarify once a week or so?
Tonight I washed with Ouidad water works then used the one condition and did my usual routine. I noticed right away that my hair was FULLER and not stuck to my head! As I started to diffuse, I had tons of nice curls. They have revived
Or does my hair just hate low poo's?? I didn't know there were ingredients in the deva low poo that would build up?? Or maybe in the one condition?

The Deva lowpoo has polyquats--7 and 10. While I'm told that they don't build up, they give me terrible problems. I get something that "builds up" and gives me frizz when wet. I find them hard to remove--most lowpoos don't do it for me.

Don't have the ingredients for the water works shampoo, so can't address that.

So, I see in your sig you use soap bars?? What type and where did you get them? My hair doesn't do well with oils. I go extremely greasy. What else is there besides low poos?? Regular poos which I do fine with except my hair will get dry fairly easy.

My hair doesn't care for straight oil/butter. Saponified oils that make up the natural bars don't act like oil on your hair. It removes the oils without stripping your hair. They are MUCH gentler then lowpoo, but won't remove chemicals. For me, they tightens curl and adds volume. If you're interested in the soap bars, pm me.

You can still use lowpoo, if you need it. As with everything else, you have to be careful with ingredients.
