Actually the 2nd edition of Curly Girl (Lorraine Massey's book) does recognize sulfate-free shampoos (low-poos) as an alternative to conditioner washing (in explaining cleansing she states to use a botanical conditioner or sulfate free shampoo). I know of several people who cannot co-wash and exclusively use low-poos and will absolutely correct you if you tell them that they are not CG.
