Continuing with Silicone on No Poo?

Hi Everyone,

I've just started with Co-washing and all good so far! Thing is though, I've still a good few products which work in my hair to use up that contain silicone, and whilst I do intend to banish it for good in the near future and go with a whole new range of products - budget isn't allowing just for now...
So - my question is, do I need to be using shampoo for every wash whilst I'm still using silicone styling products or can I stick to my co-washing with just the occasional shampoo?

Also curious if there are any of you out there who continue with silicone whilst using no poo method regularly and then just wash every so often to offset any build up, and if so how often do you shampoo?

I wash my hair around 2 - 3 times per week mostly.
I also was using a fair bit of hairspray - just Loreal Elvive, and wondered if no poo is enough to remove this sort of hairspray if I do go back to it on occasion (I just use it to add volume on top at the roots really)

Thanks for your help on this!!
Type 2B or 3A I think, depending...
Low Porosity, Fine, Long (past back bra strap when straight)
Can be frizzy & quite dry and tangly!
I just started using the new infusion 23 color defender. 100% sulfate free. Twice a week I use a deep conditioner by loreal that's not too pricey. It's working just as we'll as the no poo for me and I find I can shampoo without the buildup. ( or the itchiness )
The answer is going to depend on exactly what you're using as no-poo and how your hair feels. Many sulfate-free shampoos (low-poos), and some cleansing conditioners (such as Deva No-Poo or Curl Junkie Daily Fix) contain coco betaine, which will prevent silicone buildup. If you're using a regular conditioner to co-wash, you will need to go by how your hair looks and feels, but there is a good chance that you will still at least need to use your sulfate shampoo once in a while.

Thanks a million for the answers.
when you say once in a while - I know it varies, but do you reckon that like once a month may be enough?

You will know when you need to use your sulfate shampoo because your hair will start to look or feel worse. The time frame will definitely vary from one person to another.

Thanks again!
Anyone else with experience of how often they have to use a shampoo if continuing with silicone products?
would just love to get a better idea if it is more like every 3 or 10 or 20 washes for other people??
thanks a mill
