Default Can't afford a no poo method! + more questions inside!

So I've always bought drug store shampoo and conditioners and I don't want to spend crazy amounts of money on shampoo, so any cheap alternatives would be appreciated!

also, I just purchased and used Pantene Pro V Smooth shampoo and conditioner and don't want to buy a new set until this ones finished, is this okay??

and does my no poo method have to be completely no shampoo, or could I use shampoo say... once every week or 2!

thanks!

also, being a teen, I can't run out and get what ever I want, my mom deals with buying my hair products and I typically just use whatever she finds on sale for that shopping trip

Dirt cheap (89 cents to $1) and excellent solicone free Conditioner to Cowash hair is V05 Moisture milk. You can use shampoo too but cone free; every 2 weeks sound good. Try Shea Moisture Restorative Shampoo something. You can find it at Target and CVS. About $9.99

Another good cheap conditioner is Suave Naturals Coconut. It's $1-$2 and you can get it anywhere! I used it for the first time as a cowash, rinse out, and leave in while waiting on my curl mart order and it worked pretty well! You can make it work for cheap!

Also, there are a ton of recipes on here for deep conditioning treatments and cleansers that you can make yourself with stuff you probably already have in your kitchen

Being curly has honestly been the least I've ever spent on my hair! I used to buy expensive serums, heat protectants and flat irons to keep my hair straight. I second the vo5 and suave recommendations. I personally use a shampoo every other wash (once a week) and have no problem. Don't worry about rules, just do what your hair needs!

+1 for Suave and VO5 conditioners. And for a good wash/clarify you can do baking soda/acv:-)
