Low Poo Suggestions?

Like Tree10Likes

I am thinking of going Low Poo instead of No Poo. I have been using Deva No Poo but thing my hair might be getting over conditioned. What are your favorite Low Poos?
SM Moisture retention, and Cocnut hibiscus; Yes to Cucumbers. I hated their no poo.

you might be overconditioned because of the stylers you are using, or how much no poo you are using, or even your condish itself.
Well, you want to cleanse deeper, maybe use less stylers and keep using no poo and you'll find a good balance.
it's only hair, don't get too worked up, use little rather than less. and relax.

use little amount of stylers i mean. and i put no poo in my hair twice. and i let it sit in there for a minute before i rinse with hot water. then i reapply, with less than the first time. and i don't agitate my hair too much with it in, just work it in and let it soak.

Then if I need to, I'll take one smaller squirt, coat my hands with it, then run it over my length and work that in. To me, it cleans as well as Kinky Curly but does not leave my hair feeling stripped or squeaky.

Here's the bottle - I think we're talking about the same thing:

I ran out of this poo a couple of months ago, and decided to hold off on rebuying it until I could use up my Shea Moisture poo and some Kinky Curly Come Clean - but every time I use either of those, I wish I had my CJ poo instead. It is awesomeness.

My daughter uses the Renpure Argon oil shampoo (actually a Harmon clone of it) and I know others here use some of the other Renpures. I used it once and liked it.

I found the DermOrganic in TJ Maxx today so I should be set with those two for a while. (Chloe - the liter was $20 and not $10, but that's still a decent deal for that size)
