Thanks now. I definitely hear ya. It really is an experiment thing. But what would I watch for to know if it's building up or not?? Any symptoms that I can watch for or just the weighing down?? Thanks I know one for example that when I oil all my length and then lowpoo, now all the oil comes off, (I used almond oil and soybean) and even the next day, I could still see the shine and definition from the oil, making me think my lowpoos aren't that good at getting oil out and so I could perhaps get buildup.

if the next day you still have shine and deffinition from the oil, i would use less, or use a low poo instead of cowashing. does it weigh your hair down? maybe you just need to use less.

my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
