Question Low Poo and Mineral Oil?

I've been searching around the threads and I cant seem to find out.. Is low-poo sufficient to remove the mineral oil and prevent build-up?

(I'm currently using Cream of Nature shampoo for normal hair - in the red bottle)

TIA!

I think its one of those personal experience kinda things. Some people dont' have a problem with it at all. Some people it takes days to remove it.

Loo-poo does remove most kinds of build up, esp if it has Cocamidopropyl Betaine in it.

I don't seem to have a problem with build up from mineral oil. JC hair cleanser is enough to clean things up for me. Others on the board have had a harder time removing it. Kathymack washed 3x with soap bars to remove it.

Actually, soap bar, Dairy Whip and low poo twice to remove mineral oil! Took about 10 days to get my hair back to normal.

oh dear I'm having a REALLY hard time finding products with no mineral oil that don't have cones so I think its a risk I'm going to have to take and hope for the best lol. Keeping my fingers crossed though!
