Low Poo Suggestions?

Like Tree10Likes

I use Nature's Gate. Cheap compared to a lot of other brands. I use it every few days.

I grabbed the Herbal one. I don't like the scent too much but I definitely want to try the others.

SM Moisture retention, and Cocnut hibiscus; Yes to Cucumbers. I hated their no poo.

The DermOrganics lowpoo is good too.

Honestly, I wouldn't spend the $20 on the DermOrganic. I used it for a little bit, but I found that it didn't lather very much (or clean,) but it managed to dry my hair out. Personally, I think BR种 shampoos are the best I've ever tried. I am actually halfway through a bottle--and as a PJ, that never happens! haha
The lather is incredible but it actually moisturizes and makes it feel like I've used conditioner after I rinse.
I use this one:
BR种

But the company also has a shampoo for frizzy hair and a volumizing one. If you are protein-sensitive and worried that the protein in the beer in the shampoo would dry your hair out, it didn't dry out mine. In fact, I think it's helped with split ends.

I might put my SM Curl & Shine Shampoo and DermOrganic Shampoo on the trading board.

In fact, the coco betaine's primary function is to make the other surfactants gentler. The SCI provides tons of lather, but it is also one of the creamiest and most moisturizing surfactants. This is the only shampoo that doesn't strip my hair but still lathers unbelievably and cleans well. I took it to my salon when getting my hair cut, and she loved it too. Also, this brand is local for me, and I love supporting local businesses

I hated the Dermorganic. It foamed oddly like hydrogen peroxide does and the fragrance was choking to me. I have most of a big bottle left. I should try to swap it.

My mom told me that when she was younger she and her friends would use beer to condition their hair. So, I've heard of using beer before.

I just bought Everyday Shea Shampoo so we'll see.
I have used Everyday Shea before It is gentle, but it is alkaline because it has a soap base. You may need to use an ACV rinse occasionally for pH balance.

SM Moisture Retention is excellent. I just bought the Curl Retention one, but probably won't use it for a while because I don't shampoo very often. Actually I'm getting my hair cut again next Friday, so I'll probably try it out then and compare the two.
3a/b, F, normal porosity

Wash with either Suave Tropical Coconut, As I Am, or CJ Daily Fix
Condition with STC or Yes to Blueberries and detangle with Denman, rinse very lightly (baptismal rinse)
Add LAL gel, either Sport or Wet Look, scrunch with flour sack towel, and plop
Diffuse 5 minutes, then air dry
Beer is slightly acidic and contains trace amounts of hydrolysed protein.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG. Past bra strap length heading for waist.

CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen
Treatments: Komaza Care Matani, coconut/ sweet almond/ fractionated coconut oils, Hairveda Sitrinillah
Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss Ultimate Volume, various Elvive
Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Au Naturale styling gelee
Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
Experimenting with: benign neglect

There's no way I can use Broo. As a celiac I would never ever put beer on my head.
I'm looking to change my sulfate free shampoo. I will check these out.
