I also have PCOS< can't tell if my scalp is dry or oily though. It's frustrating because I want to do cowashes, because they say it will stop the overproducing of the sebum from the scalp, but then I'm afraid if it's oily to begin with, cowashes wouldn't be good?? HOw to tell, THAT IS THE QUESTION!! Do you cowash or low poo or what? Maybe dousing the ends with conditioner so they don't get AS dry!

Oh and I'm a 3a/b hair type if that helps
