Now that I know how to treat my hair, it's in such good shape that it tends to be over-conditioned. I've been using gentle products (no sulfates, no terrible silicones) for over a year now. I find I need to shampoo about every other day, or my hair gets limp and flat. Lately I've been skipping leave-in conditioner, too. I don't know if that's due to the cooler weather, or if it's something about my hair(?) I have learned that I can never assume I have my routine down pat. Just as soon as I think "this is it", something mysterious happens that requires a change. Like now that I've written that I'm not using leave-ins, I'll have to start doing so again!

I don't even know, lol. I have a sulfate-free poo and I don't use silicones but sometimes my hair just feels dirty and producty, so I use it then. I shampooed today and I actually had a good hair day. But it's true, I'm CG and I still 'poo.

I have to shampoo or my ends get really gunky with just conditioner. I was strict CG for awhile and my hair started looking really dirty even after I washed it. I also have very porious color treated fine hair. When I started CG it was just what my hair needed because it had been damaged and it needed all that moisture but now thats its gotten healthier I had to go back to shampoo.

I use a Jessicurl HCC, because sometimes I find that when I'm testing out a new condish, if I don't like the outcome/results I feel like I want to "start over fresh" or perhaps I get that itchy scalp too. I like the HCC anyway because it makes my hair so silky. I've never had that before in a poo.
Plus, although rare, I do occasionally overcondition and I don't like the results from ACV(stinky) or BS(drying) scrub/rinses.
