will cones hurt my hair if i use a low poo? seems i need the poo for scalp also
 
hi, i live in high humidity and my hair is very thick-stranded (puffy) and rough texture. i blow my hair out sometimes into big curls. it seems i need cones to prevent a very dry, puffy, frizzy look. i haven't used any cones for a year. but i tried one this week again and my hair looked a lot better and held the style without getting really wiry or frizzy looking.

i feel also that i need some lo poo (creme of nature brand) or else my scalp burns badly after a 5 days without a low poo (i had only been using cowash or no poo brand for a few months and the burning of my scalp concerned me (probably due to high humidity and i exercise also). it seems i get a film on my scalp that i can feel if i only use conditioners to cleanse. thank you for your advice! i do not want to improperly condition my hair.
i am devoted to being curly girl. thank you

There are people here who use cones' and low poo and are still able to avoid sulfates. Hopefully they will chime in and tell you how to pull it off. I know it can be done.

Have a look at this article http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlre...p-on-silicones. (you will be able to lo poo to get rid of them) It will tell you what silicones need what to remove them. Remember that we all want to find out what works for us - even if you use cones you can still take good care of your hairhttp://www.naturallycurly.com/curlta...cons/icon7.gif

I've been using a non-sulfate shampoo and condish with cones for years and years and have very healthy hair (I bought them from my hair salon so they are upper-end products in Japan - and this is before I knew anything about sulfates and cones).

But now that I am saying goodbye to permed straight hair, I'm switching to CG-friendly brands (no sulfates, no cones).

From what I understand, even good cones can weigh your hair down making it difficult to hold your natural curl.
