My favorite low-poo is Andalou Naturals Age-Defying. My hair is very easily weighed down, and it's hard to find a low-poo that cleanses without stripping but doesn't weigh me down. It's the only...

I love the Light Defining Gel in the summer. I also love the Foam as a refresher. I can't get it to work consistently any other way, but I get great 2nd day hair using it as a refresher.
