Going CG, V05/Suave naturals OK?!?

I am going to go CG starting this week when I get all of the products I need. I am suprised to hear so many of you recommending V05 and suave naturals products to use as co-washes, but I am curious about the shampoos. I am extatic to see these affordable products work, But before I go completely CG I would love your recommendations for not only a co wash but a lowpoo as well. My scalp gets very oily so I will may have to use a low poo once to twice a week and co wash every other day, which of course I may have to adjust as I move forward with cg routine.

Are Suave Naturals/V05 shampoos LOWPOOS? If not can anyone recommend a decent and affordable LOWPOO I can get at a grocery store/walgreens in the usa?

I will also need to get an affordable deep conditioner as well. Any recommendations?

Ty in advance
The Suave and VO5 shampoos have sulfate in them which makes them not a loo poo. I don't use a loo poo so I can't recommend any.

As for conditioners, I'm a big fan of L'oreal Vive Pro Nutrigloss for curly/wavy hair.

Good luck!

I also agree that the Suave/VO5 shampoo's are not a low-poo. They are actually pretty drying. I like the Giovanni line, the Triple Tea Tree Treat shampoo is a low-poo and helps if you have a dry/itchy scalp. You can get the Giovanni at Target and/or health food stores. Dr. Bronners castile soap is also another good low-poo and moisturizes because it's made from oils.

One thing I know that should be in any store is the Johnson & Johnson's Johnson No More Tangles shampoo + conditioner for curly hair. Someone else recently posted that this is what they use and I was surprised because I thought J&J had sulfates. I checked it out and it really does happen to just be a low-poo.

I think you'd be surprised with what you can get away with once you go CG. Your hair might be greasy at first, but try not to wash every day. If you're washing every day, your body is trying to compensate for the loss of oils and makes your hair oilier. Once you cut back on the shampooing/cleansing daily, your hair will eventually adjust and stop being so oily. I had the same problem and now I can get away with only cleansing 1-2 times per week. Remember to give CG time. It can take up to a month or more to see the results.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
