okay thanks! i havent started low pooing yet though because i've been thinking this whole time that i was a three but i found out i'm a two something and washing my hair would be lovelyyyyy. can i use suave naturals though, or no?
I went about 8 months without any poo but now my hair seems to require it ... not sure what changed ... but my hair is pretty greasy these days if I don't use any shampoo. I think you should do the gentlest cleaning method that still gets your hair clean. co-washing is definitely gentler than low poo but just not enough for me lately.
I saturate all of my hair with conditioner and then add low poo to my scalp area. when I do that then my hair is a lot less likely to get the "finger in electrical socket" look typical of shampoo :P so yeah ... I think your suave naturals idea is good ... it sounds pretty similar to what I'm doing actually
It has more to do with your texture and porosity than hair type.
I considered myself, and still do at times, a wavy for the first year I was on here (I've been on since July 2007 but didn't join till much later). I've used shampoo bars a couple times to experiment but other than that have only used conditioner to wash since July 2007.
My hair is fine and medium porosity. I only co-wash once a week or less. If your hair is fine, try cutting back on how often you condition, water wash instead, before adding in a low poo.
